Dead link removed - RichAndo

played again last night ,review done already ,they are getting better and better ,bear in mind they are all 17 and writing their own stuff
the future looks good

The lead singers brother is in a band called The Neat and they are very close to signing a record deal so if things go well for The Neat The Blanks will no doubt be backing them from time to time


my lads the one on the left ,bass player :thumbright:

now just need to get some Tee shirts printed ,bass players dad ,bass players mum ,bass players brother lol

With some decent production i think brown paper bag could be a really good track, sounds like it needs fattening up a bit and a heavy reverb on the rythmn guitar chop perhaps, nice bassline, yeah like it :thumbright:
