Blog-o-Sphere Hive Mind! Hear My Call!


Don't worry. I'm working on something funny. Honestly.

In the meantime, can I ask your opinion on something? I'm very bad at making decisions and then I can blame you if it all goes horribly wrong.

You know how people dust off their tennis rackets during Wimbledon? Well, I'm like that during the festival season. But with guitars.

I'm chomping at the bit to start playing (badly) again and form a band. Don't get me wrong here, I have no designs on rock and roll stardom (quite frankly, I need my sleep these days)

The way I see it, there are two ways to go. First, is a fun punk covers band playing the songs that I'd like to hear in the pub (the Ramones, Clash, Pistols, Green Day kinda thing)

Second is doing "original material" but with that I tend to write in a Teenage Fanclub/Neil Young/The Hold Steady way. But not as good.

What would you rather listen to in a scummy pub over a pint of snakebite and black?


  1. Why not fun punk covers with original lyrics?

  2. Ooh yeah. What about a pun-k band. Versions of "I Fought the Doors and the Doors won"?

  3. I am ALL up for pun bands. Go forth and pun, be uber punalicious!

  4. London's Boring?
    Should I Bat Or Should I Bowl?

  5. Oh, I'm enjoying Should I Bat or Should I Bowl. Particularly with the Ashes coming up.
