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!

New website developed

Posted by zakala on Aug 12, 2009 in Website News

As we’ve spent  a year or so concentrating on new material, recording and producing an album, it seemed only sensible to update our web presence. Consequently uncle Ken has been hard at work developing a new look website.

The bulk of the site design has been completed and we are busy migrating content.

Preparations for our first demo continue

Posted by Neil Horsburgh on Aug 25, 2000 in Band news

Preparations for our first demo continue with the refinement of our own material. The current plan is to lay down some basic tracks within the next month. There will probably be four or five tracks on the disc which we hope to sell at gigs. (Alternatively we will never run out of shiny beer mats). To this end we are preparing to play a gig in November to try out the material.

Our version of “Sex Type Thing” is sounding almost complete. Andy suggested that the Sacred Reich version of “War Pigs” would probably suit us better than the Black Sabbath version. The jury is currently out and may require to be put up in hotels for a number of weeks on this one.
