Our band Apocalyptic Theory (We're going to be working on a new name) split up in February due to personal issues then we got back together in April. We primarily play alternative rock. I play bass in the band.

I wish I was. I've had plenty of people ask me to play drums in their bands, but they always fail in the downright most retarded ways that almost make me glad I didn't start a band with them in the first place. I've experienced the annoyance where I'm going to start a band with a few people, and they end up replacing me with my 4 years of drumming experience with their friend who just got a drumset a few weeks before and variety of other bad experiences when trying to start a band.

I do get to play in a band setting a decent amount during Jazz band at my school, but I would really like a project that me and a few other people could call our own, play music we want, and continue it longer then the short trimester that the class lasts.

Because that's the case with any thread in which people get to talk about themselves.





It's human nature.

I used to be in a noise band for a bit. It was pretty fun. Whenever we played we left audiences covering their ears, or laughing their asses off.

and now it's my turn

i've technically been in 3 'bands'.

the first one was just myself and a few other students who would jam on a regular basis. we played a few talent shows in college. we also had access to a lecture theatre and it's storage room at our school. every now and then we'd haul our stuff out to the main stage and just let it out depending on who was working security that night hehe. there was one guard, Harold, he kicked ass he'd always come in and take his break near the back of the room haha. even sat in on the drums one night hahaha

here's the pinnacle of our efforts (i'm on guitar) - snargle bargle - you do not know the rules

the 2nd band was called 'panda go panda' apparently named after an anime featuring a panda who liked to puff. this was a 3-4 piece combo with different buddies from college post graduation. we played together once a week from 2001-2003. we played 4 shows before 2 of us moved away. technically the 2nd one at a bar was opening for then relatively unknown alexisonfire. it was a sunday night, they weren't on the bill but happened to be in town on the way back to montreal. we didn't actually have a set rehearsed that night and the only people there were our buddies

the last band never had a name. at the core it was myself and the drummer from PgP along with the bass player from SB. after moving away in 2003 and coming back in 2005 it was awesome to play music with these guys again. it never felt like we had been apart. then our jam room flooded in the spring of 2008 and that was the end of that.



and now i wait for a new rehearsal spot to open up in town. almost happened in the spring but now it's not until the fall.

I always wondered what kind of band you were in Dave. I guess I know now. That's cool you opened for alexisonfire, you're so modest about stuff like that.

I played bass in three bands before I joined the military.

1st being A Safe Crisis. A post-hardcore/punk band in high school, we started off playing Thursday covers and went on to write some other originals. Never released a demo, played alot of small shows but nothing to speak of.

2nd Band I was in was when I was about 19-20. 2 dudes from ASC and a couple new guys, we were called The Greenfield Spy. We played all originals and this is were I first experienced recording. Nothing too serious, we just did a couple songs to put online. We played alot of shows over the course of about 1 1/2 and then had to break up.

3rd Band was a progreeive metal/ metal-core band called MurderInMind (I know I never liked that name either). This was bby far the bet band I was in, we played alot of huge shows, some small festivals, and even did a demo session. We opened for Gwen Stacy, Kingston Falls, and The Analyst among others. This is were I began to see what being in a travelling band could actually be like. Unfortunately, it didn't work out and I was forced to move on to something a little more responsible now. I can't wait to play again though. Hopefully I can get a band together out here sometime soon.
