band form?

thirdtimelucky: ok, Me,(ben) James and Matt went to school

thirdtimelucky: in year 10 we decided we wanted to start a
band but we didn’t have a bass player

thirdtimelucky: so they got Fritz, who they played tennis
with at the local club, to learn to play bass

thirdtimelucky: we asked him because we got along with him
pretty well

thirdtimelucky: he actually left the band for a bit, but he
kept learning, so enventually he came back

thirdtimelucky: At the moment we are just trying to build up
a profile for the band…..

Parx-e: yeah

thirdtimelucky: and we would love to do another recording
but that is hard without alot of money…..

Parx-e: yeah money is always a plus

thirdtimelucky: but basically we are trying to get people to
notice us more

thirdtimelucky: by playing as many decent sized gigs as we

thirdtimelucky: we have seen other bands who are friends of
ours do really well for themselves, so we know we can do it

Parx-e: if yah push yourself you can do it

thirdtimelucky: yeah

We chat about mp3.com.au and how it has helped them get expose and
emails from people in the usa.

Parx-e: any chance of coming down to melbourne

thirdtimelucky: ooooh, man i’d love to but unless some
decent band invites us to tour with them down there i don’t
really see it happenning very soon

Parx-e: yeah

thirdtimelucky: but that would be cool indeed

Parx-e: yes

thirdtimelucky: everything comes down to the cash

Parx-e: cos I don’t think I will be going to brisbane
anytime soon

sounds really awesome nothing else matters for that short period of
time caus all your thinking of is what you wanna play next and how
you want it to sound

Parx-e: yeah

thirdtimelucky: i got into punk mainly when i met fritz,
because i didn’t actually listen to that much punk

and bodyjar

of music

fine in your collection

there is ANYTHING wrong with jazz

accepting as me of other types of music

Parx-e: thanks for yah time dude any last words

small local bands out there that i reckon deserve alot more
