if you google my real name, you could end up on pbs.org reading about the (awesome) band I was in during college.
They described us thusly:
"Blocking Consensus came together in 1998 at Haverford College in Philadelphia. The eight-member group chose their name while debating the merits of the Quaker-based value system integral to their college. Their influences include an eclectic mix of traditional and third wave ska, hard rock, punk, and heavy metal. This mix has developed into a socially conscious party music heard often on area campuses."
Pretty good all told. In truth the name came about because we couldn't agree on a name because someone was always 'blocking consensus.'
The band fell apart because the singer and lead guitarist decided they were too good for the rest of us, and went off on their own. They failed miserably.
I have great memories of playing for like 200 people a couple times... our music was impossible not to get caught up in.
I miss that band.
You could always start a new band. Boston is filled with musicians. However, I'm convinced that many of them are boring musically. I find myself being supportive of only 3 local bands so far.
yeah, but I'm not much of a leader. I'd rather find one to join.
Alas, I do not know anyone who is looking for people.
plus I'm bad about commiting time.

and he could contribute vocal goodies too, i'm sure.
in that case...
tell him to get his ass in gear, and call me when he's ready.

I miss your band. I still rock out to that CD occasionally. But really I miss hearing you guys cover "girl take it easy" which was my favorite thing ever.
On a tangent, I was thinking the other morning while listening to "Agua" about how the memory I have of you, Meg and I at the Pilfers concert is one of my best. :)
