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.
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.

Probably a result of repeatedly asking Thomas about our outstanding (in both senses of the word) ALPHAs and not having a reply, the fact that progress with FATE is very slow and that Martin is still available, has culminated in me now considering a personal CD project where I’ll try to get the different parties on board to, literally, play their part.

There was a small flurry of communication last night. Continue reading “FATE – pre rehearsal”
On Sunday Flo wrote (with a couple of pictures attached) showing a children’s woodland adventure park which had been devastated by a local squall. Continue reading “ArztHosen – charity concert”
I set off towards Mainz through one of the most extreme torrential downpours I’ve ever seen and arrived just after 19:00 and about ten minutes after the others, who’d driven in from a different direction. Continue reading “ArtzHosen – SWR concert”
Frank sent me a test to tell me that he couldn’t make the planned rehearsal due to work commitments and so the practice session was cancelled. Continue reading “FATE rehearsal cancelled”
