I haven't played in a band in about two years, but when I was in college at NAU I was in a band called the Degobah System, which actually morphed into Soulcracker, and I'm actually heading to LA this weekend to hangout with those fellas that are still keeping it real and plugging at it. In 2002 I was also in a short lived 60's-ish garage punk band called The Stupers, we played a few shows in Tuscon, then two members moved to N.O. My best band was called Nodule, which split into Trousers in San Fransisco and Safety in Los Angeles. Safety is still around, but I lost track of those Trouser boys.
Being in education, I have plenty of time to play, especially in the summer, but touring during the week is next to impossible. I also now live in Cottonwood, and the only bands around here are classic rock. I gave up music for a career, what a sell-out!
I used to sing, play keys and guitar, but all I have left is my 1984 Les Paul with EMG pickups and an old Crate amp. I also have my old PRE effects processor, but I haven't used it in years, and a wha pedal that needs a new pot. I'll keep playing the Les Paul until I die.
I also forgot about a really bad commercial band I was in called Hostile Locals. We were the house band for a club called the Old Post Office for a few months, and played some shows with Anyface, Milla Raspa, and a bunch of other Flagstaff bands. Ahhh, those college days...
We also played on a stage once previously owned by Dokken at this hippy festival-Equonox thingy. Our singer kept saying "we're rockin like Dokken" every other minute, completely drunk. Guess you had to be there...
Currently I'd love to put this project together: old 1960s, 1970s country songs played faster (double bass on the drums) and call it Morris and The Boys, from the movie Slingblade. Kinda a hillbilly/punk thang. If I relocate to PHX I'll try to make it happen.
The problem with bands is that it's a relationship with three to five people, so it's hard to keep everyone happy or on the same page.
If anybody wants to hear the Nodule stuff, I'll email you some tracks. PM me.
"When I see guys huddling up after the game, to pray, that's what scares me about the game. I'm a Baptist, but I'm also a quarterback killer, and I ain't praying with you. But I will give you 30 seconds to ask your Lord and master to keep me from killing you." -- Hall of Fame defensive end "Deacon" Jones on what aspect of the modern game most upsets him.
