A big thank you to our fans!

Thanks to all our fans that came out to support the Love Commandos gig at Subside Bar last night. We had a great time and although we were the only band playing there was a reasonable audience in attendance. We even managed to entice a few passing strangers into the bar with our cover of “I’m Not OK” which just shows what a draw My Chemical Romance songs are.
Thanks to Subside for giving us the opportunity to play and hopefully we’ll be back again in the future.

The Pretender

Posted by zakala on Jan 23, 2010 in Band news

Just realised that I hadn’t posted anything about the last couple of weeks rehearsals. We’ve actually been quite busy running through material and even starting to learn yet another cover version. This time it’s the turn of the Foo Fighters to be given more of the Love Commandos makeover. After months of suggesting “The Pretender”, Andy finally listened to it again and realised he did like it after all.

After one week playing it over and over it’s starting to take shape, although getting all the parts in the right order and the right length will be a challenge. As will not singing the lyrics of Sesame Street’s “One of these things is not like the others” as the first line of the chorus. Honestly though, it does sound like that’s what he’s singing and if Dave Grohl writes lyrics the same way that our Neil does I bet that’s what it started out as!
