Okay, so I don't want to make a great big post here, so long story short, I was a drummer in a previous life.
In 1986 I began to take drum lessons. From that point on, until about 2002, I was playing music.
In 1991 I joined my first band that played all original music: Trinity-X. That lasted until 1993 when I joined my second band, Larry before leaving in 1996.
After that Trinity-X got back together for a bit.
The reason I'm bringing all of this up here is that over the last few days I've been adding the various demos we recorded in both bands to all of the music streaming services.
All the Trinity-X stuff I put up hasn't quite made it to all the major services yet, so I'll start out here with Larry.
In the time we were together we played over 200 live shows in and around the Lawrence, Topeka, and Kansas City, Kansas area, and recorded three demos consisting of three songs each.
Now, rather than try to come up with cover art for each of the three demos (anything we had at the time would have been formatted to fit a tape cassette case), I instead took all nine songs and collected them in one album I named: All Inclusive.
Now, I'm using the word "I" a lot there, and that's because this is a project I took on myself. I contacted the other three guys from Larry and asked if they had any issue with me doing all this and they gave me their blessings.
And so now we get to the real point here of this particular post, the links to where you can find All Inclusive so that you can get out there and stream to your heart's content.
As I go through all of my old video cassettes and slowly convert them to digital, I'm finding tapes that have just five to ten minutes worth of footage on them.
This is one such video. An entire tape, and all that was there was the band performing Hole at the Bottleneck in Lawrence, Kansas.
There's no date on the tape, but based on our hair, the song, and how Shandon introduces it, I'm guessing this was sometime in 1994, not long after we released our first demo, which did contain the song, Hole.
