Things continue to move forward. Just received a new mix of Carrie today from Daniel K. in Minnesota. I think it’s very, very close. This single is going to be out any second!
Plus!! We have possible Discount Romance Logos! Kindly supplied to us through the combined efforts of Judith, Darby and Jeff. (He’s one of the singers in Death of the Author Brigade and a top notch artist to boot)
Discount Romance Logo – Version No. 1
Version No. 2
Version No. 3
Last night’s rehearsal was not our finest hour but we are doing our best moving the big old shit wagon forward. We were missing Dan, who has gone back east so he can go to Mexico and then fly back east so he can fly back here to L.A. Don’t ask.
Everyone’s a Cowboy – Well, this song is finally coming together as band tune. The acoustic version is very nice. This is finally sounding like it will be just as good with all of Discount Romance whaling away on it.
In The Mornin’ Time – For some reason, we had a dickens of a time with this song last night. Perhaps it’s because Dan is missing. We’ve done better but as dedicated as we are to showing our adoring public the warts and all…well here it is! And get a hold of that sexy tambourine playing!!!
And here are a couple of songs sung by Jeffry with Death of the Author Brigade.
Heaven – Because you just can’t get enough of those California girls.
Bad Man Now – A nicely moody piece.
And now the Captioned Pics!
Due to “Misunderstandings” in 17 states, this is as much of Kent’s face as we’re allowed to post.
Shabby Road isn’t the cleanest of rehearsal studios. Right next to Carissa you can see we’ve just erected a Ferris Wheel for the cockroaches.
“Jason tries to imagine a world without fudge.”
Carissa is saving up for a new hamster cage.
We have to be so careful with how much of Kent’s real identity we reveal in these pics. That’s not even his own chest hair.
No matter how drunk you are, gluing your tongue to your guitar is never as much fun as you think it’s going to be.
If cleanliness is next to Godliness, then what the fuck am I next to?”
“If anyone asks, I am Rudolpho Memships, I’m a quiet guy who keeps to himself. No, wait a minute. That’s serial killers. Tell them I’m a guy who occasionally talks and I know at least two people.”
“Mmmmm. My knuckle just smells wonderful, tonight.”
“On second thought, tell them I’m a really chatty French woman, named Jespeep, who very rarely leaves her house due to bladder issues.”
Carissa waits for an instrumental break in the song, empties her left nostril, and keeps right on singin’!
“That’s it! I’m actually a Black Labrador named Sammy. Every time your phone rings, I’m going to start barking.”
This is really the only reason we let Dong in the band.
“Can you repeat that? ARF! ARF! ARF! I’m sorry, one more time? YOWWLLLL!. Hello? ”
