We have been busy the last 2 weeks. The last two weeks have been in preparation of a presentation. We have gained a new member, a name for the band and we put on the live presentation in front of an audience as a powerpoint with 1 person talking per slide.
So the name of the band is The Common Idiots, it does go well with the Christmas CD as the 2 songs we are recording are punk rock. The idea of the name was the new member’s Abby’s idea , because the song that she choose first was The Common People by Pulp. We have since changed the song choice to Kings of Leon – On Call.
So the live set will include:
Iggy Pop – I wanna be your dog – 1969
Sex Pistols – God save the queen – 1977
RHCP – Can’t Stop – 2002
Kings of Leon -On Call – 2007
David Bowie – Heroes – 1977
Queen – Radio GaGa – 1984
On a side note:
Just been chatting with Toby and we came up with some ideas:
To record the rehearsals in a studio room, and use the recordings as outtakes for the Christmas CD
To video record the rehearsals and add them to our blogs.
To video record the live event.
