jessgrace: The Great Zine/Band Outing!

Ok so it upsets me that Innocence only runs from friday 14th oct till the 20th but i'll survive. It's on everyday at 3:20 and 8:30. I'm guessing we'll wanna go for the 3:20 showing. A Friday maybe?
Also do you both want to come see the Corpse Bride which starts on the 21st of oct - which is a friday.
Also Pete are you going on photography trip on friday?

A while ago the Guardian had an article in about people in Britain buying more guitars then usual. Apparently a higher percentage of young females were picking up guitars. They said this was because of the likes of Avril Lavigne. Oh yes,Avril, the most credible female guitarist out there. This article has already begun to make my stomach churn. Have they not heard of Brody Dalle, Courtney Love (ok so shes apparently a crappy guitar player but still she's influential), Kathleen Hanna, Joan Jett, Joni Mitchell, Juliana Hatfield, Kelley Deal, Corin Tucker, Chrissie Hynde, PJ Harvey etc? And why can't girls be influenced by men aswell?
It then went on to Daisy Rock guitars. The necks a made slimmer so smaller fingers find it easier to finger notes - now I think this is a good idea because I have v. small hands and do find it hard but I manage. They're also lighter for us weak girls! The think that really pisses me off though is the fact they can't come in normal shapes and colours. They come in puke inducing colours like Blue Mermaid, Purple passion, Pepper Mint, Awesome Pink. And in stupid shapes like daisy's, hearts and butterflies. For Fuck Sake - I'm not Barbie. Do I want an awesome pink love heart guitar? No! And if any female walked on stage with one she'd instantly lose all credibility and respect, she'd be a joke. I went on Daisy Rock's website and it states that one of it's customers it Hilary Duff . Nuff said.

I was going to write into the guardian complaining about the article but my mum threw it away.

jessgrace: Bassist!

Tom (thomast) has very kindly agreed to be our temporary bassist! We're trying to arrange a practice time around our college timetables.
In other news my sister thinks I should take a few singing lessons so I know where to pitch my voice!
I'll get a pic up of Tom as soon as possible.

Wow lacking in updates like whoa... so I'm updating with no news or anything to actually say hah. We've started college again and are more determined than ever to succeed with this band and go to America! We also kinda realised that the two others(drummer and bassist, still needed) may not be permanent as it's unlikey they'll want to move to the US of A for 3 months next summer with us. Either way we can still get 'members' to do songs with us and see how it goes for now, then if we need, get other members in the US. Not that we want the others to feel dispensible, its just we kind of made this thing ourselves and we don't think we'll easily find others who share our dream and are willing to give everything to make this happen. When we do then it will really be an actual 'band'. Oh and Jess has written a full 17 songs! Yay! Now we need to learn guitar parts for them haha.
