by "band" I'm more so referring to you and three friends with matching emo haircuts who can kind of play some instruments unsuccessfully attempting to create music, rather than the band where people spit into metal things and make noise as a group. I'm also not expecting for anyone to be a member of a professional and respected band that has sold thousands of albums, but if you are, do tell.

anyway, if you have been in a crappy garageband, what was it like? what was your band name? how old were you when you were in it? do you think you actually sounded decent, or were you shit?
and if anyone happens to have any pictures or recordings that they haven't burned yet, feel free to share those.

Yeah, I played guitar in a "garage punk" band a couple years ago (just starting highschool). We were named after a place in Ireland (can't remember the name now that I think of it, started with a "K" I think)

We practiced like twice, then everyone moved away and here I am still playing on my own.

Been in one band.

Was offered to join a couple others.

It sucked, we couldn't agree on shit. Everyone wanted to be the star, so we quit.

Yeah, they were all my really close friends so I was pretty sad about everyone leaving. I lost all contact and I really wish I could show them how much i've improved over the years and talk about old times.

Geez, I sound like an old man. Anyways, its not for everyone. Not even sure it was right for me, everyone fought over everything lol

I've smoked pot with a band before and hung out at their practice sessions, does that count?

They went by the cringe worthy name of "Pimpy Sexy". Needless to say, they sucked ass.

I had this experience as a guitarist or drummer in various local bands.
I even had my own boring indie quartet which was very short-lived.
Now I study DAW production by myself and don't want to form a band.

Yeah and it's a fucking chore. Playing music is nice, managing 5 men-children lemmings isn't.

If I ever do that kind of shit again it'll be a dictatorship, I've had enough democracy.

Of course, I'm the lead guitarist of Metallica.

With bad luck, snake eyes, a pair of dice.

I like the idea of being able to perform alone while having just a laptop with controller.
A band would be great, but it's always a compromise and possible unwanted "surprises".

I'm not sure if this counts, but I ran the soundboard and projector for a band in my later high school years.

I still remember on April Fools I changed the band's name on the opening card to "Team Satisfaction." Good times.

I was a singer in a 6 person band for about just over a year until I left the country, good memories, we always did stuff Friday nights and that was usually the highlight of my week. I'd like to think we weren't too bad.
