Nine months. At the time of writing that’s how long the current WildscreW has been together.
I’ve been meaning to start this blog for quite a few months and now, finally getting around to it, I have the problem of how to cover the past. I’ve decided to make this, the first “sticky” blog entry, a general overview of the past year and in the future, the blogs which are concerned with the past, will be marked with FLASHBACK (UPDATE: A nice idea but in reality I’ve had more than my work cut out keeping up with daily entries).
This blog simply aims to document events, from my perspective, about and around the rock band WildscreW. I certainly don’t know where this musical adventure will ultimately end-up, but I’d like to think we get at least one CD made and maybe some local air-time and fame.

Just as David stated, and in what is turning out to be a prophesy, the band continue to struggle to find lift off momemtum after the CD. Continue reading “One CD wonder effect”
This week promises to be even busier than normal with FATE planned for Monday, which will be a late night. Squash on Tuesday followed by a choir session in a neighbouring village on Wednesday, and choir again in my village on Thursday.
The ArztHosen on Friday, which will again be late, then Saturday preparing, with the choir, for the main choir practice on Sunday.
