Nine months. At the time of writing that’s how long the current WildscreW has been together.

I checked out our stats and the initial “rush” of listens dropped off (sharply) but did at least remain stable the last couple of days and we’ve even had our first (complete) listen of a track (“Beast With Two Backs”).
I’ve no idea whether we’re rehearsing this week. Continue reading “FATE – pre rehearsal”
Thomas gave me a call and double checked about my holiday. Continue reading “ArztHosen – pre rehearsal”
Starting 30 minutes earlier, as planned, the table was decked out with drinks and fare as one of the singers was celebrating her 50th and, there with her husband, their silver wedding anniversary. Continue reading “Choir”
This evening sees the first rehearsal of 2018 and it is due to start 30 minutes early as one of the “Girls” wants to celebrate her 50th birthday (which was last year). Continue reading “Choir – pre rehearsal”
