We'd love to play live but we live thousands of miles away from each other!
The band have an eclectic mix of influences, so we'll see what comes on out in the wash! We sit mostly in Blues and Rock but the mix of personalities brings out some really interesting music.
As we are an exclusively online band everything we do is recorded to PC. The tracks we create are shared around via a central ftp site. We use programs like Audacity and Adobe Audition to create and mixdown tracks.
More recently some of us have been experimenting with MIDI and synthesisers to expand our musical repertoire.
"Umm we're in it for the music, man." Isnt that what old muso's are supposed to say?
