The Return Of Panic Button

Recommended Posts

there are enough roadblocks without creating some more internally. with this in mind i've decided to scrap under attack, as well as the projector ep and use those tracks on a future panic button album. it's a sad state of affairs when i have to create a side project to get the other half to play music i actually enjoy.


it makes no sense to continue this. when a six pack of beer and a one hour bus ride to the other side of the city is the only incentive to get someone to leave their parents basement. it's just not working anymore, and it's only going to get worse.


i can't play in a band with someone who's insitance that they're the leader, and who's ego prevents the band from going anywhere. i'll continue to write lyrics, and or sing backup for matchem, if desired, but i don't see the positives in learning thirteen songs i don't particularly enjoy playing.


yesterday, before i went out to celebrate my twenty fourth birthday with a few friends, i spoke to a drummer, and bassist who are very interested in learning a handful of songs, practicing those songs, and playing them live before settling down to record.


it's no big secret that i loved playing in this band. even through to the time of the bands apparent demise back in december i always knewk picking up the pieces was a viable option if i ever got stuck. it worked with norm, it worked with kyle and solomon, it worked with kyle, solomon and jim, and then again with just solomon. the key ingredient was well written songs, and honest lyrics.


it bothered me knowing that i didn't have solid recordings of songs like naomi, and turn of the century. i showed them to chris, and he called them crap. mostly i guess i'm just looking forward to showing these songs to people that will appreciate them.
