Next jam is next Tuesday, March 1, 2005, 8-12 and it is not yet confirmed.

The 8-12 jam at Carroll's and Scot was on vacation so it left Coffee-Boy on his own.  Actually his friend Russell was scheduled to play drums with us but cancelled a t the last minute so Coffee was on his own.  We were in the big room at Carroll's because we were displaced out of our small room because the Black Crows were in our normal  rehearsing a Don't Let me Down.  We couldn't really see them because they put paper over the window into the studio but you could hear their muffled cries.

Since we only had one drummer the room was asymmetric compared to usual and everything was a skew.  At first during the Skakedown the openness of the one drummer was nice and liberating.  It felt good.  Unfortunately it seemed to be downhill from there and we never seemed to have any consistent groove or positive feel.  

It seemed a bit depressing coming back for the second set, thinking what can we play that will be okay without being so arduous but the Uncle John's actually gave us a little spirit that carried us through to the end of the night.  We did the Liberty pretty well and realized that even though we still had time for a song or two, it was better to leave on the positive note of the Liberty.

In the world, the NHL finalized the cancellation of the season as baseball started its spring training with lots of steroid talk.  We had a mild day although there was a little snow falling when we left.

This was obviously largely Russell's fault; his lame ass last minute no show has landed him on the permanently "banned from deadstein" list. He can't even come and watch any more as far as I'm concerned. While Russ did throw a blanket of neg on us, he does not play our instruments and you can't blame the shitty effort last night on him. I don't know how to properly voice my frustration with the music last night. That said, if we cannot make an effort to at least learn the songs we're trying to play then there is no point to doing it anymore for me. I'm all for re-arranging deviating and doing weird shit if it is planned but if there is no foundation there can be no journey. I don't want to hear that there is no time to practice that is BS. I'm not paying fifty bucts to listen to a weekly SPOC practice anymore.

I suggest we pick 10 songs right after the previous jam so we have a list to practice and/or listen prior to the next jam. Not that these should be new songs, but ones to focus on as the week approaches. i.e. for next week I am picking 3: Feel Like a Stranger, Looks Like Rain and Truckin'. Now the rest of you, especially those who sing, pick your own songs. This is my suggestion to get the most out of our $50.
