another lost boys of krypton rape story?
ok ok...towards the end of the lost boys, we werent really a band anymore. RJ was long gone to Florida living off the parents and we would play only sporadically whenever his family would travel north to visit family. it would be set up in advance to record for an upcoming record as well as squeeze a few gigs in as he was usually in town for a couple days.
the problem with this was the drummer trent was uninvolved in any of our bands by that point (the evolutions were starting to evolve and he wasnt part of the equation) so other than occasionally bullying him for a place to record a demo we hardly talked at all, and when we did, it was mostly us making fun of him.
still, he was always willing to be there for a reunion, but for some reason roy didnt want to play bass at all. he just wanted to put out the records and play guitar in some sort of new band, not even conceived yet. later, right before we broke up he did rejoin for a few full sets, much of which is on side B of the lathe cut LP.
when we recorded the creatures split we were without a bass player. i pretty much forced my ex to buy a bass and taught her how to play it. the first time she ever recorded a bass line, ever, it came out as the A side of a record.
before RJ came back we had about a weeks notice so we snuck in a few practices, i drew out some bass tab for Liz, here it is, a goner exclusive!!!
the bass tab to the 1st 2 songs of the last nuns of kryptons set list from 1998. learn the songs and play along to the records. i warn you though, this is some tough shit. be prepared for lots of practice (if youve never held a stringed instrument in your life)
