I should've bought that house with the fucking barn.

I think the correct agricultural term is "insemination facility".

In fact, I vote we do it at Chur's house in Rolleston!


:crazy: we could all use load boxes and IR's and stand in a circle with headphones on :wink:

Old band shed was a barn in Templeton, unfortunately now gone.
First thing we did each practice was have the bass player bang some loud low notes out and watch the mo fo rats run for their lives. Fun times.
Downside was sheep shit from your shoes in ya pedalboard. Dogs wouldnt leave it alone when I got home.

I've a distant memory of a mouse running out of a bass drum. The kit was left set up so the mouse obviously thought the blankets would make for a nice, cozy home.

It's where a bunch of 40-something and up beer bellies and bald spots gather to play very loudly through expensive and often boutique equipment, as a way of convincing themselves that although the dreams of rock god stardom they held as a younger versions of themselves has long since faded into the realities of being middle-aged, doing this allows them to desperately hold on to the idea they are still just a little bit cool.

Well that's why I turn up to them anyway.
