Well that’s it, the band have approved the art proofs, paid the balance and committed the production run; Siren is go!
It’s been a bit of a journey and has taken longer than we would have liked, but the finished album should be with us in a few weeks.
To celebrate the Love Commandos spent Friday evening practising some more covers and some old gems and generally making a lot of noise. We’ve also decided that Dave Grohl does an awful lot of shouting in The Pretender. As this also reminds me of Douglas Adams’ Vogon guard that’s probably a good thing.

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!
