    Ace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My band just got through the 1st round of the Telford Battle of the Bands, and are now in the final a week on Wednesday! 4 out of the 8 bands went through and we were one of them! Next week another 4 out of 8 go through and the final is judged by a panel of 15 PR and record people and consists of each of the 8 bands getting 15 mins. We played the best we ever had, numerous freakouts on Kaoss Pad by myself, and sampler by Rob, Andy (Guitar/Vocals/Piano) dropped his guitar at the end of a song and we just went off on an effects freakout for the hell of it. The last song I put my bass down then he got us to play it then at the end he dived into the drum kit! MENTAL! I joined in of course! Loads of people came over saying they were impressed and we even got a death metal band to shut up who were slagging us off before we played according to Rob's dad!

    Anyway here we are just after our performance taking a **** take promo shot!




    Left to right:

    Rob "The Scientist": Guitar, Synth, Sampler, Laptop
    Andrew "Kiri": Vocals, Guitar, Electric Piano
    Jon "Leech": Drums, Decks
    Eric "Rik": Bass, Kaoss Pad + TV

    WAHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
