|When the sardine begin the beguine

So this Saturday I held the first ever rehearsal for The Thingamabobs at DM-1. This is a project of The Immortal Human Skin Cells, the audio branch of the Knighthood of BUH. Anyhow, The Thingabobs are a punk band that only performs songs from Disney's heartwarming classic "The Little Mermaid".|
Considering that none of us had ever played together before, and we didn't know the songs, it went surprising well. Chickenhead played drums, Dave played guitar, Richard played bass, and Sheel sang. We experimented with the lineup a little, but that was the predominent one.
Also in a attendance were Mindy, James, Lisa, Mike (with lots of neat toys), Bonnie, and myself.
Anyhow, I decided at the last minute to capture this momentous occasion on minidisc, so here's a sampling of what went on. Bear in mind that a single minidisc recorder is going to get really shitty sound from a really loud band rehearsal, and also that WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN. But I still think it gets the point across and shows the potential... Pay attention. You can pick out James and I in the backup mob. Also, I pretty much take over the "newt play the flute" bridge because Sheel was unfamiliar with it.

Also, best of all, stuff was destroyed. During a run-through of "Part of Your World" when Sheel yelled "You want Thingamabobs?" James jumped up, pumped his fist in the air, and said "YEAH!" Unfortunately, when he pumped his fist he hit the glass globe that covered the kitchen light fixture and it came crashing to the ground.
Okay, fine, here's that, too:

That's fucking punk rock.
