Jim Gibson & i had sorta tried t’ start a ‘band’…
( we nvr even got t’ th dreaded ‘naming stage’… )

he was a WiCk’d Good dRuMMeR…
and had prev ( i believe / seem t’ remember ) been in ARMed FoRCe…
a ‘sumwhut lokel’ ( i believe they were queens/bx/ynkrs ) HM HEaVy MeTaL bar-band…
( i MaY even post their demo – if i can find it! – and if anyone is innarrest’d… )
( if inarrest’d pls t’ e-mail me… )
well… i can tell yu that we ‘TRied’ t’ du sum cvrs…
SLaYeR – “CheMiCaL WaRfaRe!”…
and th’ Then V. PoPuLaR ( thx to heavy mtv airplay )
SUiCidaL TeNdeNCies – “iNSTiTuTiONaLiZed…”
but my vokels were more than creaky…
i jest couldn’t du anything that didn’t sound ‘geeky’…
so we practiced mebbe 3-4 times & decided t’ jest pack it in…
well that’s enuff fer this draft/post/ fer now…
