I don't think I ever mentioned this in 20 years of soapbox but 1998-2002 I played bass in a high-school band. We were called Supernova, like 600.000 other bands in Rome at that time. I got in because I liked Oasis and I knew one of the two guitarists. Strange, because we never did a single Oasis tune. We had a singer who was obsessed with Elton John and was he himself a renowned poof. Later he became an Elton John impersonator on TV.

We did a lot of Queen covers, we did Europe's The Final Countdown and a few originals written by the keyboard player. One of our tunes was called Bad Weather. After gigs we would get compliments because that song sounded "like a real song!". Incidentally, the guy who got me in was sacked two days after I arrived when he told the band "I've written a blues that goes 'doo-dah-dah-doos'". "I don't think so", said the keyboard player, and I've never seen that guy again, not even at school.

We played with this line-up (vox, guitar, bass, keyboards and drums) until late 2000, at which point the keyboard player and the singer left to make their Elton John duo, and we had to reinvent the band. We changed name, we got a girl as a singer and another guitarist (the previous was forced into leaving). By this time, we 4 members of the band didn't have one thing in common, musically. The guitarist was crazy about Dream Theater, the drummer thought Tico Torres was the bee's knees and I had just started listening to The Stone Roses! Our overall sound was really awful, we sounded like one of these nu-metal bands from the arse end middle of nowhere, like Missouri. We started gigging a lot though, and I was always afraid of inviting people to our shows because we sounded so bad. Musically we were very tight, but our choice of material was just shite. One time our singer's dad showed up at one of the gigs completely plastered and started singing along to our covers really loudly, it was possibly the lowest point in my puberty.

We recorded two demo CDs, one of which the drummer gave to Noel Gallagher when Oasis played in Rome in 2002. I was really ashamed of it.
A few months later I received a message telling me to practice You Give Love a Bad Name, to which I just replied "Fuck off". I left the band the following week. I still have one rehearsal tape at home and video footage from our first demo recording session :D


There is so much I love about this post. Had me in tears reading through last night. Bravo. HoF. 10/10.

In my opinion U2 are one of the best singles band in the history of music, well up to a point, anything released from 'Vertigo' onwards has been pretty poor, but pretty much everything released before that was fantastic.

I will never stop loving Wham and the Pet Shop Boys.
The PSB have already been covered, but mate, Wham are fucking glorious.


I love you Kev.

At age 10 they were the first 'band' I fell in love with.

confession: I don't enjoy punk. I think it became a parody of itself too quickly for its political angles to be taken seriously (especially since "no" isn't really a political angle), but punk split off into better sub-genres that all flourished.

Growing up I use to hate traditional Irish music. It's all that gets played here on the weekends on the radio and I use to despise it. I had no idea about our culture here and the musical influences it brought on etc.

In latter years I cannot get enough of it! When big acts come across to play I make sure to go see them live etc. I'm really sad I never got to see The Cheieftains live now as Paddy Moloney recently died :(

I also want to point out that I really don't like Jack White/The White Stripes/Racounters etc..

I'd only want to see Meg's cracking tits again tbh.

On all of the songs I've ever recorded (badly) I've never used a pick/plectrum. It's gotten to the point where I feel completely useless on guitar when using one and that is really something I should work on.

I have never listened to a Nirvana album. I might try some day soon but I just can't seem to muster up the will to turn one on.

I think my friend being a big fan always put me off growing up.
