Hello Songfight! I have many great memories of you. :) My lame excuses:
5 years of voice pains,
Now my gear is obsolete.

Best not to take it personally. At least, that's what I keep telling myself!

Good one.

Unfortunately, staying up till 6am means napping takes you past the morning deadline. My House Red chorus bears striking resemblance to GravityJohnson's anyway... #ijustwantadayofffromtouristing #nothingnewunderthesun
Everything is about perspective. :shock:

OW, it's been months since we did a damn thing. Our singer had sinus surgery and then was diagnosed with a rare form of Vasculitis. The guitar/ukulele player developed sores on his hands that prevent him from playing fretted instruments.
Hopefully we will return with a new lineup. Maybe a solo effort.

Every time I feel like entering a fight, I check the website and it's either due tomorrow or it's 3 days past due.

To be fair, due tomorrow typically means you have three to four days. Usually.
