We haven’t given up; we haven’t gone away.
After the fundraiser, we’ve just been doing our thing the last few weeks. Like learning new material, expanding on old ideas, drinking Busch Light and having a good time. In our effort to ever entertain you, we’re coming up with new ideas on how we can entertain you. Here’s a short list of some of our online endeavors.
- We’ve got a YouTube channel. Subscribe to us and see it all before it’s on VH1’s Behind The Music!
- Last.fm – We’re streaming online! Come scrobble us.
- We’re set up on ReverbNation. You can sign up for our mailing list or join our street team!
Speaking of YouTube, here’s a couple gems from recent practice sessions. The first one is (another) Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers cover – “I Need To Know.” One of our favorites. Check it out, and you’ll see why.
This may come as a shock, but there is a little work involved in creating a song. If only it were as easy as strapping on a guitar and making beautiful sounds that you immediately knew couldn’t be any better. Alas, each SFoM original must go through a period of “woodshedding,” as we call it, where we put it on the workbench, cut it up, piece it together and sand it down. Here’s an example of us woodshedding a new song that doesn’t even have a title yet.
SFoM’s first bass player, a dude named Brian Bittmann, has also been making some appearances around the basement lately, trying to add to the stew the flavor and spice contained within the keyboard. Here’s a short little snippet from a happy little tune of his called “Lead” I shot while the band took a little break on a lovely springtime morning.
This is only a little snapshot of what we’ve been working on. Come check us out sometime! It’s the closest you can get to Valhalla in this world.
We’ll be at Ned Kelly’s on May 7 all night. Free show! Cheap booze!
