The Drummer's Only Nine And He's Gone Hollywood On Us Already


Ladies and Germans, Unorganized Hancock!

Ambient mike on a Flip camera singing through a practice bass amp with no reverb in a room with no heat or permanent electricity.  If they could find a bass player who'd show up two weeks in a row, they'd be working for money right now.

Not bad - I see he has the whole slap pick/strum thing down pat.

Nice guitar by the way - Fender rules!!

Working for money is good.

Dad is busy putting Leslie's tables into shipping boxes and can't play the bass right now.

Don't never let the union organize Hancock.

Leslie said...

Yippee!

Hi Tom- He earned all the money to buy that guitar, and his amplifier, by doing chores.

Hi Sam- Look at that room they're in. Organization of any kind is unlikely.

Hi Leslie- We're done burning our fingers with the hot glue gun and getting near-lethal paper cuts from the corrugated cardboard now.

Mr. Sippi, I hear those musicians' unions have a lot of goons out organizing. Y'all be careful, heah?

When they find a bass player besides Dad, I would like an autographed photo of the group so that in 40 years, I can say to my grandchildren who think the band is cool, "I knew them way back when...."

If they played requests and took Paypal they could make money right now
$20 for "Everybody Talks" by Neon Trees

Dave, who isn't kidding

Dave! Throws down a gauntlet.

Give them 24 hours and they can do anything.

Better not make the nine-year-old come looking for you for his money. He's mean.
