Title: EPIC DITCH: Skate Rock From Nashville
Post by: John Davis on January 20, 2011, 10:02:08 AM
This is my new band... we recorded our debut EP over the weekend.  It's proper Skate Rock, straight outta Nashville.  Obviously, this is my first post, and I don't comment very much, but I lurk around here all the time.  I hope you'll like the jams.  Release date/details TBA, but 5 of the EP tracks are streaming now:

I was in Franklin Tennessee 3 weeks ago and saw a ditch by the Whole Foods, but never had the time to skate it  :'(

My work won’t let me go to “Social Networking” sites and I can barely hear music on my computer at home. I do remember this song though

SUPERDRAG : "Sucked Out" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2buLteYLwc#)

'Preciate the feedback, dudes!  Krusher, hope you had a good time in Middle TN; we've got some spots, even a few ditches.  8)  Re: touring plans, we still haven't played yet!  We sort of formulated this idea a couple of months ago and started writing and e-mailing demos back and forth, then got together one time to jam before the session.  We talked about the possibility of doing a free show/fundraiser at the Knoxville park once we get the record pressed-up, etc.  Chuck, I'll PM.  Thanks, man!

Respect,
J.

And yeah, Superdrag, did you guys play Minneapolis with Paw? Jesus, it must have been 15 years ago?

That sounds reasonable... was it at 7th St Entry, possibly?  We played there a couple of times, First Ave a couple of times, 400 Bar several times, etc. etc.

I was going to a lot of shows back then. Probably First Ave or the Entry. Is Minneapolis the only place yo played in MN?

We played in St. Paul once, but besides that, to the best of my knowledge we never made it to any other cities in MN besides Minneapolis.  We should've.  Our bass player Tom was born in Duluth, though.

I was always psyched to play in Minneapolis; Hüsker Dü is probably my all-time favorite band.
