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.
It was the end of May 2014 that the final band member, Tobi on bass guitar, came to the practice session and joined Frank on drums, Erich and Thomas on rhythm/lead guitars, and myself, Andy, on vocals. Continue reading “Nine months on from WildScreW’s formation”

We’d arranged to rehearse on the Tuesday before Kirk left for a few days holiday and over the weekend Erich had delivered our CD to Jürgen, who’d traumatised Erich with a half-naked video call, but obviously not enough so that Erich had invited Jürgen along for an audition.

Over what started out as a sleepless Friday I managed to motivate myself on Sunday for some bass playing and, still with no set-list, decided to practice all the songs with the aim of learning them off by heart (except for my personal hate “Bayern” and the new “Rebell”.

When I got to the practice room all the others had already arrived and Frank’s eldest daughter had also come along to listen. I’d bought along a new microphone stand (for Erich) and plugged in a new microphone cable (for me) as I suspect that somewhere along the line is a weak connection. Continue reading “FATE – rehearsal”
