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.

We watched “The Voice” battles but the ten minutes of adverts between each battle forced us into retirement half way through the show. Continue reading “Voice – battles – old dog and new tricks”
Saturday evening I found myself driving to Kaiserslautern where four car salesrooms had been cleared out and prepared for live concerts. Continue reading “Firma Holunder”
During Friday’s ArztHosen rehearsal Thomas mentioned that he spoken to Erich who had been told that he’d probably have to be operated on again on Tuesday, as something wasn’t quite right. Continue reading “Erich – set back”
I was first to arrive at the rehearsal room but I’d not been there long (I’d just started to play along to my MP3 player) when a new face walked in to the room. Continue reading “ArztHosen rehearsal”
As we were watching the final episode of the VOICE blind auditions my wife asked me again about the GASC, mainly what I’d entered, when the results were expected and were there any prizes. Continue reading “GASC entries”
