Sounds great. Do you guys know any Phish songs?
Needs more cow bell.
Does the lighting tech charge by the color? ;^)
I'm sorta confused...did you guys video tape this
in the hope of getting gigs?
Sweetbac will post his review shortly. You may regret the feedback
I'll take it with the grain of salt that it so richly deserves.
LOL. It's a classic Irish bar in Boston. I was pleasantly surprised to
find that they
A) Had an actual stage
B) Had ANY lights at all

Oh man...I DONT mean to playa hate!
It's just that you keep going on about this, and
it's SOO ridiculously lame...
where to start?.....where to start?....
The harmonica player?....that doesn't make you squirm?

I guessed you missed his recent HBO special, "Same Old Jokes But Still No
Cover Charge: A Sweetbreads Retrospective."
Sweetbread's bits are like McDonalds, it's never going to get any better but
at least you know just what you're going to get.

Crazy as this sounds, I'm starting to warm up to you, Doof!
sure, comedy isn't your forte...as the above post makes painfully
clear...but there's something about you that makes me...oh...smile!
Not in the slightest.
Those who can't do teach. Those who can't teach critique.
Not in the slightest.
Not meant as a critique, more of a joke.
Did you notice what the first related video off to the side was?
Part 1 - Noise Ordinance Amendment, Moscow City Council
Yup, a video of the Moscow City Council debating a noise ordinance! Maybe
you should turn it down a notch.............

Yeah, I did notice that. I don't know how the videos are organized,
but I thought it was a rather odd collection of videos

Hey, got you off discussin' yo bidness in de mock ebonix, that's something
Have you ever considered becoming an instrumental band?
Ok, you regularly advertise your band here, post links, music, and now
a video. You posted it saying you wanted feedback. You got some, and
this is your response? Hate to break it to you, that tune was not all
that good. It sounded like a million other bar bands in small towns.
Glad you enjoy playing your music, that's great! Gonna post it
repeatedly to the internet and ask for feedback? Get ready to hear
some criticism, cause that band was seriously mediocre.
In the words of Simon Cowell, "That was...awful! I felt like I was in
a cinder block tavern in Peshtigo Wisconsin or something. I mean, the
harmonica was like a dying animal of some sort for god's sake, and the
band had as much charisma as a group of paint salesman, not to mention
the obvious lack of any real, exciting, interesting musical ideas.
Boring, boring, boring."
If you think that I take Sweetbac seriously one way or another you
really necd to get over yourself. I don't think that were anything
more than what we are. We have fun, and that's all I really care
about. I EXPECT Sweetbac to say exactly what he said.
So far as your opinion. Sorry we're not your cup of tea. The audience
had fun, and so did we
And your opinion is about what I would expect from someone with the

The last time I was in Boston I got drunk at the "Cheers" pub. I was
pleasantly surpised to find that
A) My girlfriend liked to drive 90 mph in the pouring rain.
B) I actually made it home alive.
Definitely more cowbell.
#I laughed...I cried...it was better than The Last Waltz.#
You guys have a good sound.. That's a great song, played with
style and enthusiasm. It shows both excellent taste in material
and an abundance of talent.

Turn up that guy with the electric guitar.
No but we have considered doing nothing but Dylan and Phil Lesh
ROCKS! I like it,looks like y'all were havin' a good time! :-D
I would definitely enjoy it if I was at the bar that night, but
wouldn't go there to see them particularly.
I agree, the harmonica needs work. Same with the backup vocalist.
Which one are you? Sorry, I haven't followed the music threads.
But if you're having fun and the crowd is as well, that's all that
matters. If you're looking for a recording contract, that's a
It's not often I can see someone do Changes, what are some of the
other tunes you guys know?
Either way, it looks like you guys are having fun and can play pretty
good. Does that acoustic guitar guy play acoustic all night? For some
reason to me, it doesn't seem to fit.
You did take him seriously enough to get snippy about getting the
feedback you asked for and din't like.
I don't think that were anything

Good for you and good for them. If you don't "care" about people's
feedback then why did you ask for it? Or did you mean to ask for
> Scot- Hide quoted text -
Yeah, you're not taking it all seriously at all. It's bad form to
ask for feedback and then whine and lash out at the feedback you don't
like. I'll pass on your concerns at the next Buttock family reunion,
feedback is one thing and insults are another.
> I'll pass on your concerns at the next Buttock family reunion,
there was a Buttock reunion in my bathroom this morning! HAHAHA!
Scot, I think you guys should consider a female singer, one that also
could utililize a tamborine. Donna Jean is still doing her thing.
JamBase says "no current shows scheduled for this artist". It's not
out of the realm of possibility. And she could kick you all up to
satellite radio kind of exposure.
LOL. Yeah..I'm sure Donna and Scot's agent are working out the details
of this collaboration behind the scenes. A female lead singer doing
Dead and Dylan covers might be refreshing. Good idea!
No what I asked for was feedback, not dickhead insulting feedback. If
I wanted that I would have emailed it to Simon Cowl. I'm all for
constructive critiques. Hearing that you thought it sucked isn't
constructive, it's just insulting.
Yeah we're a bar band. We're lucky if we get to rehearse more than
once a week. That song wasn't rehearsed at all. It was done for Buddy
Miles who had died that day.
So far as Dave Kelly, he's one of the most consistently funny people
on this ng, I expected exactly what I got from him. Go check his
posting history regarding pretty much anything and my responses to
him. So while you might think that my response to him was whining, it
was actually just giving him some shit back. (Hence the White Go Go
Boots comment-if you actually read this NG on a regular basis you
might even get the joke)
Anyway, as I point out early, Buttock would seem to be a perfect name
I was just pointing out the irony of such a response from someone
requesting feedback; whilst also taking one for the team and pointing
out what many readers are thinking when they see yet another post
looking for attention for your band. I realize you have a need for
the praise, and I am so terribly sorry I couldn't provide it. Here's
some constructive criticism: continue having fun with your band,
playing music is fun. Your band is mediocre. Asking for feedback on
the internet and posting myspace links for a mediocre band is going to
result in people who are Buttocks giving you dickhead insulting
feedback. That is the nature of the internet. Develop a thicker skin
and stop whining, or stop asking for feeback and using the internet to
blog about your music career.
Pre-emptive freedom of speech argument rebuttal : No, I'm not saying
you don't have a right to post what you want, that all of rmgd isn't
your close personal friends, that I'm not an asshole. I'm just
HTH, IAAMBBATMPWYPII, Arguing on the internet special olympics blah
blah, blah, NTTAWWT, You're a fuckin' moron, Iceland, mules,
jizzmoppers, etc. etc. etc.
You ask for feedback, you got some and now you want to whine
about it ? If you want a professional evaluation of your band
send a tape to a professional and pay the fee. If you want
free feedback from Usenet don't whine about it when you get
what you pay for.
If I walked into a bar and that band was playing I'd turn
around on my heel and get the hell out of Dodge. So sorry if
that's not "constructive" enough for you. Oh, wait just a sec.
Tune your guitars *before* you start to play. There, that was
me being "constructive".
Well, I think this is going very well so far.
