Boo-boo and discussion.

Posted By on Thu, Apr 13, 2006 at 11:55 AM

OK. I was bound to screw this up one of these days...

The spotlight in the paper for RECON at the FlynnSpace is incorrectly listed as Saturday, April 15.

It's actually on Friday.

This is the first time I've ever messed that kind of thing up, so go easy! I guess I've been distracted; moving into a new apartment, and hustling deadlines like a madman. I know, excuses, excuses.

Anyway, apologies to Tom Lawson.

Speaking of Tom...

There's been a lot of talk about the (temporary) reformation of the Pants. The original lineup of Tad Cautious, Tommy Law, Pistol Stamen and Hutch is hard to beat.

But does anyone remember the later incarntation with Paul whashisface on drums, Dan Mazur on keyboards and Jeff Lawson on bass?

I seem to recall them experimenting with some heavy sludge-rock ala Melvins at that point.

Drop-tuned guitars were all the rage back then. The Pants were not exempt.

In the quest for the ultimate, bowel-rupturing tones, my old band tuned down to B. That's frickin' low, guy.

I liked some of those Pants tunes, though. Didn't they record a little demo with Trey that featured some of that material?

Anyway, I'd like to hear it again.

Let me know if I'm remembering things correctly.
