Thanks! I think we did pretty well on 2 rehearsals. This was the first time we've played this show too, might do it again later in the year. Wait til you guys see Ruby, we nailed that glorious live outro

I didn't, I was looking over waiting for SOMEONE to turn and look at me so I can give 'em the old "wink" but it didn't happen #worsttributebandever

Also trust me, I was hurtin' during Fuck You, my left forearm was cramping and felt like I was losing power half way (each stroke felt weaker as the song progressed), I still managed to pushed through it. If I was a touring musician or playing intenser music (my regular gigs these days are a walk in the park compared to this) then I would've had an easier time.

I've edited like 8 songs so far, still heaps to go. I might upload Ruby tomorrow...

Sick drumming dude. Not sure your vocalist/guitarist is quite putting in the yards for y'all though..

Yeah, you slay the drums and the rest of the band sounds great but the singer is kind of weak.

Yeah his vocals are a bit flat in spots but overall the energy/conviction is there I think. Go easy on him, hard to find a suitable Billy that would learn so many songs and remember so many lyrics.

You're right about that! It's a tough style to emulate, and he's just about there.

Sounds kickass nonetheless though man!

I liked the singer. I’m glad he wasn’t trying to do a straight bill impersonation. I mean this isn’t a tribute band it was just a tribute show, right? Two totally different situations

Correct, tribute show. This isn't an on going thing and we're not gonna make a career or money out of this, just for funsies. He's a good singer, some of this stuff can get a little out of his range (particularly when he tries to push the lower octave it gets pitchy) and he decided against doing a straight up Billy impersonation and just tried to attack it like Billy would live... without completely blowing his voice. I agree that out of everything, his voice is the weakest element but for what it is, it's still pretty fuckin' good.

I've edited Ruby, I'll chuck that online tomorrow morning (so about 10hrs from now).

I've thought about this a bit and now I want to hear an SP tribute where the singer is taking a hit of helium before each line

Here's Ruby as promised. Vocals are a bit rough in this but try and look past it.

awesome. you should send this one to billy and fuck you to jimmy on whatever social media shit they're using now

Thanks! Have already tweeted the band(members) but I don't think they check that anymore and I've not had any responses from any of them via instagram. I'll keep trying. If anyone here feels like trying to get their eyes on this i'd really appreciate it, especially Jimmy's.

And yes, full cam of Fuck You (and hopefully every other song) coming soon. It's time consuming editing all this video after work in amongst everything else but i'm like 8 or 9 songs into it now. Planning on uploading the entire show in 1 hit (as one link) vs separating them all.

Ruby sounded majestic. fucking great job

I think the band distanced themselves from social media now that the big reunion thing is going on. Hope you get a shoutout from JC. I actually got a few replies from him last year, but just about nerdy questions, not, you know, this

I've been in a few original bands. I'm on an album by a guy called Michael Savage, I really like his songs. We just 'launched' the album last week, check it out here - https://michaelsavage.bandcamp.com/ maybe give Mike Love, Nothing Good and I Can Feel Again a shot first.

One of my former band's, I'm on all the releases here: https://theautumnisles.bandcamp.com/

If you sift through my youtube channel you'll see a bunch of my original band stuff too, mainly drum cam stuff but you can hear the songs and see some of the band.

Fantastic drumming. Did you try auditioning back in 2009 when Jimmy left the band?
