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.

After a small WhatsApp exchange the next songs for the ArztHosen repertoire were decided. Continue reading “ArztHosen – the next songs”

During the course of yesterday’s rehearsal Erich broke to me the news that he is losing interest with the WildScreW project and, by the end of the evening, he seemed pretty intent on letting the others know. Continue reading “FATE: The King is dead ….”
Having more or less mastered the bass line for the song Erich stated that he’d actually suggested we do the song next week. Continue reading “(Hip Hip) Hurra”
I wrote to the others asking if we were rehearsing on Thursday but Erich then replied and reminded me that it is Weiberfastnacht, and he would be out and about with his company.
