Laz they (the videos) work now. You and Mark are tight. Do you still play with him? I enjoyed the shows very much. Pete Swann rips. Santers should have had a bigger appeal in the states than they did and that too bad. Thank you I know that took some time to fix.

Laz, I enjoyed your solo track. Very ProjeKct-like, I agree. Interesting professional history. It's been years since I played covers, but ironically my current band is playing a re-arranged version of Black Dog! It's a great riff, but it sounds like you've probably heard it a few times too many.

When I posted my history I threatened to upload some new tracks, and they just went live on http://music.download.com/rasmajuka
Have a listen! I think Other Side of Me has a definite Crimson influence.

Good work Mark. I'm going out a limb here but I thought the band was fine but the vocalist a little weak. I hope she's not your girlfriend or wife cause I'll really be putting my large feet in my mouth. It's great that you have concentrated on original material. Besides playing in Santers where 99% of the material was original I spent a large portion of my playing carrer playing covers. It ends up being a job instead of being music.
You had me confused for a minute cause I knew you were a guitarist and there you are playing bass. You also seem to have done a good job promoting yourself having your tunes up on the dowload site. I watched the vid a few days ago but it has slipped my mind......is that a jazz bass your playing in the video where you are playing outside? Keep up the good work.

Thanks. And I agree that our vocalist is our weakest link, but we're working with her and have seen some improvement. I used to play in a band with my wife as vocalist, and I'd prefer not to repeat it! The marriage survived, but the band didn't. I do lust after our vocalist, but at a distance, so I don't think it's clouding my judgement much...

I am primarily a guitarist, but have doubled on bass off and on for many years. I volunteered to do a fill-in bass gig with this band, and enjoyed it so much that I later accepted an offer to join permanently. I'm really enjoying the contrast, and have committed to playing bass finger style, even though it's still a bit of a physical struggle getting through a long gig (like the 3 sets last night). I find that as long as I practice both instruments daily, the difference in scale between guitar and bass doesn't throw me. My bass is a Squier P-bass copy, which I bought for my son as a Christmas present a few years ago! He's still playing, but I'm getting more use out of it lately.

Claudius

Our band, Claudius, cut an demo/EP last weekend. You can listen to the MP3:s here:

http://www.kissatakaraivo.net/claudius/biisit.html

Our lyrics are in our beautiful Finnish language of course, but certainly at least the groovy instrumental Ei? is 100% enjoyable beyond any language barriers. It's our drummers composition and I think it deserves to become a jazz-rock standard.

This was our first to the studio together, and it was great to hear how good we really did sound beyond arguably messier rehearsal and gig aurals. I love being in a band and playing our own songs.

Hope you enjoy the tunes too!

Cheers,
OWEN,

I’m a drummer who has been involved with several abortive Progressive Rock Tribute Bands.

MESSRS. BILL BRUFORD & COZY POWELL have been especially influential upon my development as a musician.

I’ve just heard the preview mix of ANOTHER 1000 MILES’™ 3rd ALBUM, which is will be made available for sale through our website, soon.

That's funny, because I keep getting the urge to play this:

Right now...

Nothing new. I've digitised the Jesters Planet archives, and have gotten half-way throught the process of selecting which performance of which track is the most appropriate for an (In)complete Works CD/ Then comes the laborious process of point-editing the tracks from the long sound files (the tapes were dumped in one hit in the first stage), tweaking the selected files, and finally compiling and mastering a CD.

I'm also trying to track down some missing tapes... In particular our first studio demo from early 1992. I had a copy on cassette, and it is nowhere to be found. Our guitarist is anti-nostalgic and has kept nothing (but is very pleased that I have), our drummer is far too disorganised to rely on (though I know he has the master DAT somewhere), and I have no idea if our singer at the time is even still alive anymore.

Luckily, our drummer's parents kept copies of everything that went their way, so hopefully it will turn up somewhere.

There are other missing tapes too. However I know that I had the only copy of most of those & they are nowhere to be found. At least three original songs are gone forever... I can't even remember how one of them went anymore!

Future-wise, I have a few ideas for new pieces, but it's not my priority at the moment. I want to clear out the attic of JP stuff first.

Cheers,
O!
