Motorhead!!!

Post by Michael Patrick » Fri Aug 21, 2015 7:20 pm

The good news is that we secured the Halloween gig appearing as Motorhead. The bad news is that the slot they gave us is not ideal, we're the first act of the night. Oh well, we'll just have to make it hard on those who have to follow us... :horns: :rawk:

Cool! Sorry about the less-than-ideal slot, but you can make it work to your advantage; really drive it on home and rock the audience HARD so that they'll remember you, and make the other bands going on after you really have to work hard to follow you... I know you have it in you!

I like the first slot. Just kick maximal ass, and stun the crowd. They won't know what hit them, and the rest of the bands will wonder why no body is paying any attention to them.

I just realized that in the pic not only did they get the Motorhead lineup wrong (we're doing the Lemmy/Eddie/Philthy period mostly) but they forgot the umlaut in Motörhead...

Very cool MP! If there is any video of the show be sure and let us know, I'd love to see it! :rawk: :rawk:

I thought the same thing about the lineup in the pic....

The vocals are actually the hardest part... We're totally killing it on the music (IMHO...). Our singer has put in a lot of work, he's even gotten some coaching from another local singer, a woman who did a killer Janis Joplin at last year's Halloween bash. And he's getting closer, the improvement since we first started rehearsing has been nothing short of spectacular.

We're planning to try, but with four bands on the bill the transitions can be a bit chaotic. Setting up video stuff in addition to the Marshall stacks may be a bit much in the very short time they allot us to get ready...

Here's a couple of (low quality...) clips from our most recent practice. These were recorded on a little handheld recorder, which was obviously struggling with the massive volume... :rawk:

Here's a taste of what we're going to be laying down on Halloween... from last night's full dress rehearsal at an undisclosed location in Madison....

A couple of naughty words were uttered, so maybe listen with headphones if you are at work or in the presence of younger or more sensitive viewers. :pirate:
