Clever!

I imagine that late submissions might be accepted for this particular 'title'. I know that there are at least a couple more on the way.

Happy birthday, JB!

ROCK!

Wow, some folks came out of the woodwork for this one! How long ago was this planned? Wish I'd known about it when I still had a recording setup! Oh well.

Anyway, happy birthday, JB!

Happy birthday, John. Remember how much you thought you knew when you were 20? Back when you said, dude, I'm surrounded by idiots! Now take a moment as your 40 year old self and think back to your 20 year old self. Now look around at your awesome life, your house and hot wife and yell, who's the idiot now, 20 year old me!!!
.......being 40 is not too shabby, huh? ;)

Good songwriting too!

Happy Birthday, Jr.!

For those of you waiting for YOUR songs to go up for "Hatchet", once JB's birthday is over, this fight will be moved into the archive, but late entries are welcome at any time. I will be glad to add them.

So, like, VOTE. You've got less than 24 hours!

well between d and me we might constitute one horny genius. which one of contributes the horny and which contributes the genius and in what quantities is probably for someone else to decide. and glenn case contributed drums for our track this time, which makes him at least a partially horny genius. or horny partial genius. or something.

And it should not be forgotten that these songs all sound so great because the writing is fantastic. Lyrics, progressions, attitude: JB is whole songwriting package.

Yes. When I first heard "All Tan" - I had the same feeling as when I first heard Stravinsy's "Rite of Spring".

Happy Birthday JB. Welcome to your 5th decade.



(...NB - I am just an arsehole. I have never even heard Stravinsky. I had to Google that....Happy Birthday JB)

OK - I'm pissesed,

so lets attempte an ill-advised review post!!!!!


FUTURE BOY - This is cool - well done son.

BILLY PSYCHOTICS - Like the orgasmic groaning. THis is great. JB should write all of your songs (duck)...It works - and you guys sound fantastic

CARAVANRAY1 - Well JB - you wrote the bloody song..what else can one do with it?

CARAVANRAY2 -Great song (your version). I hope you like my version.

GLENCASE2 - Jesusmutherfreakingchristthat is good Glenn. I love a vocal section. You hit it.

BRADSUCKS: Good accurate cover version - but the vox seem to lack JBs feeble vulnerability. (I mean that is a manly feeble sort of way JB)
