Big in Japan

Posted by admin on Apr 8, 2010 in Band news

No rehearsals for a couple of weeks while our erstwhile singer gads about in the land of the rising sun.
He assures us he went to see the cherry blossom, but we suspect it’s all a little more Anneka than Alphaville. He also said he was going to smuggle a few of our CDs into the country since the Japanese are well known for their love of loud rock music and scantily clad young ladies. Oh did we not mention that? You’ll have to get a copy of the CD to find out what that’s all about!

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!

A belated Happy New Year!

Posted by Neil Horsburgh on Feb 17, 2002 in Band news

Well, a belated Happy New Year to one and all from the command bunker.

Recent attempts have been made at rehearsals to record the raw, live sound of the LCs so as to at least produce the dodgiest of demo CDs. Only Ken knows how well or badly this is going.

Neil still gadding about so not much has been happening. Jon joining the list of people to blame for cancelled rehearsals. Neil no longer feels quite as lonely.
