We're playing at the Fez in Reading on Wednesday and at the Brixton Telegraph in Brixton on Saturday. We have flyers for the Brixton gig on the website :)

Some of the Palestinians might come along after practice if you're lucky, probably wont though...

you must have a different definition of lucky to me

All the talented members of the Palestinians will be playing with Rebus anyway.

Have you heard Alex play drums?

Funkodrom

I didn't say what he was talented at.

Debaser
23-11-2004, 14:49:22
He's good!

(just not as good as most other drummers)

He's talented at chanting "Toki Monkey" in the morning whilst simultaneously looking like Micky Pearce and Dave Angel.

remind me to tell him that, debaser

Funkodrom
23-11-2004, 14:52:22
I think he knows.

King_Ghidra
23-11-2004, 14:53:48
i guess he knew he had found a band at the same level

I doubt he'd argue, he's never really played the drums all that much before. He's getting better all the time though.

I thought you were talking about the chanting.

How's Austin's singing voice these days?

Debaser
23-11-2004, 14:56:25
Still better than yours.

He can still hit combinations of notes no-one else can.

Debaser
23-11-2004, 14:57:33
He recently worked out that he can't sing the note "G", so we can't have any backing vocals over that chord. Haha, quality...

Funkodrom
23-11-2004, 14:58:20
:lol:

At least he has the excuse of being half deaf.

Nills Lagerbaak
23-11-2004, 15:02:57
Excuse?! I'd use that as a reason not to sing at all!

My singing voice is angelic

Another genuine laugh out loud moment.

to paraphrase the Wu-Tang Clan when the guy from Texas suggested they try a song in G: 'what the fuck is G?'

Funkodrom

G is for Gangsta. I'm sure Wu Tang could do a song in G.

that's more of a west coast thing

Nills Lagerbaak
23-11-2004, 15:51:48
OK, G is for GZA?

I think they could still do it though.

I thought rebus were good last night. Really liked the first two songs and didn't dislike any of the others.

Alex was cool, good work on that electronic thingy. Shame steve is a bit static in his stage presence, cos he's got a good voice, and i was quite surprised that chris could belt 'em out too for a little chap :D

It was certainly a reminder that Protein is an amazing drummer, shame he was completely unlit, it was virtually impossible to see him!

thsoe speakers in the fez are too loud though, i got a fcking ringing in my ears still :(

The sound guy was a muppet. I had a few comments about it sounding dreadful last night, the snare mic wasn't switched on at all, everything was too loud, the synth was inaudible for the first two songs... So, apologies all round. It sounded great on stage though. It's a bit like filming the most amazing scene in the world and then afterward you realise the lenscap was on and nobody could see what you saw.

Desdemona's sound was horrific. I wonder if it was on purpose? The sound man used to be in Desdemona but he was sacked by voicemail a couple of years ago. He was in a foul mood all night and although I was trying to be nice to him he was an utter cunt.

Total opposite of an SU gig then!

The sound wasn't that bad, it was only a bit dicey for the first couple of songs. After that it was fine.

It really wasn't good at all. We played exactly the same way at Brixton but with much, much better sound and we had a queue of people waiting to talk to us afterwards. I've never shaken so many hands before. One chap said we changed his life.

Yeah, it wasn't great but it was the easily the best of the 4 bands on the night though.
