Rehearsals are going so well! We are used to playing to a click track now so we are playing very tight! It feels so good to be playing in a band again! Although it’s taken me and Chris sometime to get used to Dave’s stupidly loud drumming! It’s so lovely and quiet on stage when playing as Last Stand so we aren’t used to the bang and crash of Drummer Dave. When we turned up for our first rehearsal and had setup, the very first time dave hit his snare Chris said “I’m pissed off already, it’s too loud!”. We are not Rock n Roll at all are we?! We have suggested many ways to solves this problem, such as rolled up newspaper for drum sticks, rubber cymbals and Dave playing in an entirely different room all together. In ear monitoring is the way forward, back to peaceful bliss.
I’ve been asked many times, will 5th Order gig? The answer is, we hope so! When we are fully rehearsed and ready we will rock it. We cannot wait for this! Another question is “Will Last Stand stop gigging?” and the answer is no! Last Stand is so good and we love it, it’s our lively hood too, pays the mortgage etc. 5th Order shows will work around Last Stand until ‘If’ shit gets serious, then things may change.
We are on a jolly boys outing next week for my Stag do, all day on the mild down Notts. No bloody nightclubs or tying me up to a lamp post naked thank you! Nice and civil please boys! Again, so rock n roll hey!
I’m sure there will be lots of pictures posted on our page so keep an eye out.
Right, I’m off to get ready, local show at the Bentink in Kirkby tonight with Last Stand. Come and join us, we shall be rocking it up a bit!
In a bit ducks,
ps… A quick shout to Yusten, The Music Guru, your copy of the album is on it’s way to you!
