And There Were Drums

Well, I finished the drum tracks today. There are now twelve sparkling songs consisting of nothing but slightly dodgy drumming. I need a name for the drummer. Any suggestions? Working on Dan Dee at the moment but all suggestions greatly received.
Next up the bass lines!
Meanwhile Jilly has sorted out the rubber stamps in her corner of the office and actually completed a couple of mail art pieces. One passed on from Mr Leigh.
Next Michael's Floss project.
It's a holiday in the UK. You can tell that from the atrocious weather.
My daughter and her family are camping in Hastings at the moment. I hope their tent doesn't blow away.

Well, in order to suggest a name one needs the gist of the music...Jazz? Blues?Helter Skelter? HATE rain...unless i'm walking in it...talking to it. Congrats on capturing the music! Jilly gets credit? Ah, has to be frustrating trying to decipher HOW one d/l's and gets it on site. I hear stomping one's feet helps! Meantime...she waters the garden, waters the lawn & laughs that Roger gets all that water free. The grass is always greener??? Love/hate this computer...it confounds me but being a hard-headed one, I eventually learn. Write a poem, Roger, I need to emote!!! Take care all.

Enjoyed reading Jills Lucky Penny holiday diary- sounds like a lot of hard work being on holiday with you two! The Penny didnt seem to have helped all that much, as with me, when i had it. Its all in the mind isnt it? This luck thing.
Its all comparitive.
So who's go the lucky penny now?

Syl said...

A few more possible names:
Banga Bong
Rumple Styx
Quack Track
See what you got started!

The lucky (?) penny is on its way to Joseph. Well, it will be tomorrow. It hasn't actually got very far yet.
By the way - cleaned out the pump this morning and cleaned the pond up. Glass too wet to cut.
Tomorrow family coming for the day.

Roger Stevens said...

Some good names. Pete Wrist has possibilities. As does Sid "Two Sticks" Banga.
Hard to describe the music. It's what a young, teenage Britpop band would make if the songs were written by an old Beatles/Dylan fan.
More on that story another time...

Syl said...

Yes, wet glass is difficult to cut.
Would love to hear the rest of the story...
Jonathan collects "found coins"...amazing the change
left about on the streets!
Hey, you worked hard for yer meal today. Company
coming tends to do that.
Britpop Dylan...this I wanna hear!
Cheers.

Grass is also very tricky...
