Playing next week is Tuesday then the following Monday, the week of Pesach.  Unleavened Freaks Reclining and consuming bitter herbs.

Astro Freaks
The first song, as has been our tendency over the last several weeks was too strong aggressive and lacked patience which lead to it be loud sloppy and not a team effort.  Nevertheless, as has been our tendency we quickly got into a better mode and I think the El Paso was the opposite of what was described.   It was played with patience, confidence and poise.  That was a pleasure.

I Played Some Drums during Candyman and Tom Thumb.  Really clicking with Scott.  Then I took up Andy's rig while he played drum for the Bobby McGee.  He does have some nice sounding equipment.  Then Larry and I switched and I played his rig while he played Andys for the Love Each Other.  Andy stayed on drums and Dave was playing my guitar and enjoying it during most of it.  Actually I think Andy was playing my guitar during the Love Each Other and Larry was on Andy's guitar.  The music stopped for the Black Throated and we all reverted to original instruments.

El Deliciozo was taken aback when we told them to deliver and regular pie since the Sicilian has been below par recently.  They promised better food and the delivered because the new pie made with care showed a tighter integration between layers with a tremendously crispy crust.  When put under a bit of pressure those guys really can cook.  A Marvelous order pulled off by Johnny.

I MUST DISAGREE WITH EL GINDO...I THOUGHT THE SUNSHINE WAS JUST FINE AS WAS THE REST OF THE EVENING, THERE WAS GOODNESS IN EVERY SONG INCLUDING SOME AMAZING DOUBLE-LEAD GUITAR PLAYING BY LAWRENCE BRENT AND ANDREW TRISTER.

Thank you gind for the posting...it just hasn't been the same lately without the electronic critique. I thought we played well this week and was exhilirated at the prospect of a second set. I must admit after the new and improved food I thought the chances of getting up again were slim at best. By the way we're all too loud again..I know I''m a big part of the problem but I will do whatever is necessary to hear myself. Its too long a drive to not come out on the tape.

I agree with Andy, it has gotten loud again and I heard and appreciated his efforts to play softly last week, despite what others were doing. It's a kind of non-violent protest that could hopefully win out over the otherside by showing the goodness in it all. I heard his attempts to play under control and tried to play with im down to his level and the few moments when the softness was playing off itself was when it was special that night. You gottan get in to get out and you gotta get soft to get loud. It should be about band levels not individual levels and it should be about band accomplishments and not individual ones. Anything any of us do on an individual basis to impress is bull@#$% in comparison to the impressive stuff that could come out of us when we all work together. We all play best when we make the others around us play better at the sacrifice of our own selfish desires to do well at an individual level.

Here I am throwing my usual two cents into the volume thing. I'm straining to sing at an audible level.

i'll say this....i dont agree with the volume thing although i do not stand anywhere near the 3 of you that are complaining the most....MOREOVER I thought i remembered a few songs that were played very softly, i could be wrong but i think there was a "comes a time" and a candyman that fit that bill...ALL THAT ASIDE, i am for discussing, arranging or musically articulating ANYTHING that would make us sound better as a group ( although i think we are peaking musically) or anything that would improve the sound in the room for any individual.

my one, hopefully constructive idea for now is...if there is a volume problem lets mention it after each song

I say we get ourselves a sound engineer, a few massage therapists, and some band chicks.... this will make for some interseting volume.. Is it tuesday yet.
