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.

As I made my way to the village hall it seemed like an age since the last time I’d been to a choir practice. When I saw the small car park full to overflowing, I remembered, that the evening’s session was shared with a neighbouring choir and that the rehearsals were focusing on the upcoming concert on Saturday.

Thomas had written during the week to confirm the practice session, even though it was effectively me him and Andy the singer. Continue reading “ArztHosen – rehearsal cancelled”
