2am chills.

Sometimes, the scariest things are the simplest. When I’m up late and finally decide to go to bed, I will turn all the lights off downstairs and head upstairs. As I’m walking to my room, I’ll glance out the window that opens out onto the front of the house and see that the motion-activated light has come on. It could be a fox, it could just be leaves in the wind – but what’s that sound? Is it just the dull sounds of my own body amplified in my skull? Or is it – muffled through the windows – is that the gravel on the driveway crunching under footsteps heading around the side of the house?
And suddenly I’ll wonder — did I check if the back door was actually locked?

3 years later…

So, I went to go set up a new blog today… only to discover this one still existed. Rather than delete and purge, I figured I’d just pick up from where I left off.

I don’t think I’m going to go into what I’ve been up to for the last 3 years. That’s no fun and to be honest, I think the only person who actually cares what I’ve been doing is me. So. A new start.

Well. Ish.

Ready. Set. Go.

How to get through an audition you know you’re going to bomb

As anyone who’s ever been in a band will tell you, if you try to make it, you WILL take your fair share of knockbacks. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that out of every 10 things we go for, 9 of them we don’t get and the 1 we do get often has some unexpected set back that we never saw coming.

But hey, it comes with the territory. “WE’RE LIVING THE DREAM,” no band has ever said.”THE DREAM WHERE WE’RE CONSTANTLY BROKE AND UNEMPLOYED!!”

Because we’re nice people (sometimes, anyway), we’re going to give you our top five tips for how to get through an audition that you know you’re going to bomb.

Tempting Fate

As a band, we sometimes tempt fate. Most of the time it’s in vaguely harmless-hilarious ways, such as Wotsit being mistaken for a Nazi, but then there’s times when there’s genuine legal ramifications or long-term consequences.

I suspect it comes from naming the band “Crime Scene Yeah.” With a name like that, it’s just ASKING to get in trouble. People seem to get the impression that we’re a WELL ‘ARD BAND when we’re really… uh… not  :/

Why you should never pick a fight with us.

As a band, we’re no strangers to dealing with assholes. Some people don’t like our music, which is fair enough, but a while ago at one of our gigs, we had a very strange experience with a fellow who had seen us perform, liked us enough to buy our CD afterwards… and then somehow got it into his head that Wotsit was a Nazi.

YEAH.
