Waitwait...did you bother to upload Tough Boy just for that?
Anyway, we have crappy equipment, so we have no decent means of recording ourselves. We don't even have a real PA and our drummer only knows half of our songs. I'd love to make a music video at some point, though.
I don't talk about my band because we're awesome or anything and I don't want to make it sound like I'm cool or anything either. It's just something I really love doing and I'm really into, so I naturally want to mention it when I can. We're not super rocking yet, but we don't stink. We play all of our songs right...well, except a few Sex Machineguns solos that our guitarist is still working on...but that's to be expected.
I understand your attitude but... Sex Machineguns! It sound's really interesting, so if you ever make a demo, or a video or something, let me know. By the way, what's your role in the band and how is it called?
I've got some friends who started recently a band called "Rasen". They're quite decent, they've successfully played live and appart from their original stuff, they have played a very nice acoustic version of "Dubet" (Serial Experiments Lain). They've just finished their first EP, but they have some trouble with the drummer (because she is having a hard time studiyng), so the drums were secuenced with Fruity Loops... They're going to work on some videogame music covers sooner or later.

Ok, first of all, I was also thinking about him, but it came a little bit unrelated, because they don't do anime/videogame covers. Also, I only saw their debut, so I don't have a clue about how good they're right now.
And by the way, you don't give a damn about either of the two bands, the proof is that Tanaka's band is not N.O.X. anymore, what the hell, they changed their name and member formation in their debut. Great people by the way, I had a good time with them at Festimad. So there you go.

Relax dude, I thought you forgot to talk about them, that's all. There's no need to be so harsh...though you know I like it...
It seemed like one of your attemps of being an asshole, that's why my reply was a bit harsh... I know you like it, but you are insatiable!
I sing and I'm aiming towards backup guitar on some songs. We don't have an official name yet, but our name that we're using until we have a name (if anyone asks) is "Gestalt".
I hope we can get our drummer up to speed. He's a prodigy, but he never plays. Anyone who can do serious heavy metal drums almost perfectly after no lessons and only 3 months of practice has talent.
We're really nothing yet, though. Our objectives have been
2:Get better backup vocals
3:Buy a good PA
4:Get the drummer up to speed
5:Have a live
We're stuck on 3 right now, partially because I'm busy writing almost all day every day. I think we've got like...15 songs now?
Gestalt? Like in FF6? But I guess it's something completly unrelated. Well, it sounds like the band is quite solid, too bad you don't have enough time. Dance better? You also perform with crazy choreographies like Kishidan?
Well, hopefully you'll overcome all these obstacles and reach the goal, sooner or later. Good luck!

I think you should go by the stage name Polly-Amorous (or perhaps Polly-Wolly-Amorous), and cultivate a reputation for using and/or abusing male groupies.
You won't have to pay me royalties or anything. Hey! Lemme know!
Also I'm totally not mocking you. Seriously, best of luck. I need to put more energy into creative projects, personally.
Well, I won't pay your royalties, but I'll give you free concert tickets so I can abuse you afterwards.
I don't really care if people make fun of what I do, since I'm kind of a failure in all my creative ventures. We (meaning my band) make fun of ourselves, too, so it's not like we have any illusions of grandeur.
Actually, I was thinking that people here have no reason to believe that I'm telling the truth about anything I do. I guess if I was lying, I'd actually pretend to be successful.
