We had our first practice in three months last night, and it showed. But, in true Funions form, we had a lot of fun banging away.
Jim Bier is now playing guitar with us. We have a show Sept. 16 at the Blue Onion, and the next day at Rocky Point for a benefit, so we're trying to work out some of these new songs.
After practice we went to the Copper Mine. Alan Lawless is still editing tracks,we're probably a few weeks away from the completed CD.
We tossed around names. Hello Cleveland is my favorite. "If people get it, they get it," Alan said. "If they don't, they don't."
Jim had some interesting ideas - High Annuerysm, or something to that effect.
Larry suggested we call it Ain't Love Grand? after the song on the CD, which pretty much captures the ironic mood the past year or so. Just Pretending is another good title.
If you have one, let me know in the comments section.
