One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

Shoopin' that whoop since before you were born, son.

"Fun bands" that make music for the sake of music don't really exist anymore, or they aren't represented in the media. I think that officially died in the late 90's, with the exception of QOTSA.

okay, but just because a band makes music to express their feelings instead of just having fun doesnt make them a bad band or make them in it for the money.

i know you didnt say that, but im just making a statement.

you have to do more than just be good. before a label puts you out there, you have to put yourself out there. i dont have experience, but i would guess that you find the label, the label (most of the time) doesn't find you.


Edit: ^er..... because i was telling the truth! that really happened!

Agreed. Although I didn't really say anything about bands expressing their feelings.

i know. i wasn't sure if your statement was like an indirect attack on "emo" bands out today. biased generalizations like that bother me.

Ah, well this indie label is releasing 1000 records, so we'll sell them online, probably send some to major labels etc..

We havent yet had it released..

that genre will probably give you a better shot at making a living since its the "flavor of the year" or whatever.

and why is that funny?

Well its not really a "Flavour of the Year" thing for us cos it started as a hobby for the lead singer then he got the rest of us in...

uhm, oh its a personal thing, cos most of the basslines are given to me to play.. and i just give em feel..
