Boogdish does has a one man full band, not emo though. The show I saw his drum machine wasn't working right. So he air bassed it and accapellaed it. It was pretty amazing.

I know exactly what you mean. Everytime we played I always felt so lonely at the fact it was just us two and our little bit of equipment, so we started standing out in the crowd, but then the crowd just keeps receding so we're always by ourselves. It gets lonely up there.

I always make note of it and ask people to stand closer. Its so unsettling having the crowd so far away as it is, so I could only imagine how much worse it would feel without a drummer. You just have to make it a fun environment for people so that they'd want to stand closer.

yeah but people stand a mile away from CB because we don't sound like Madball, which is a big thing down here. much less a shorter, grindier version of CB with a drum machine.

I like your stuff, xcult classicx. I've been meaning to try out some computer drum machines now that my laptops fixed. Is there any programs you'd recommend?

try going for FL Studio, it's easy to use and pretty versatile.

if you really want pretty authentic sounding drums, native battery has some excellent kits. we used those on our ep. we wrote a new song that has drums sampled from Prince. wacky.
