OLD: Why can't the band skate? (31 Oct at 22:58)
I have a bunch of old, almost-finished projects kicking around on my hard drive, including a number of recordings of Sick Ridiculous and the Sick Ridiculous tracks that we wisely recorded sloppy versions of just before Nels moved to Belgium (and then elsewhere). Since I haven't plugged in my Roland SC-880 and something changed about the sample rates my sound card is willing to play (?), it's been a bit of a pain to mix and master these, but today I figured out a workaround for one of those problems. So I finished off this old track "Why can't the band skate?"

Why can't the band skate?
Why can't the band skate?


We made this track for dwrensha's (and his twin brother's) birthday on 11/11/2011, making it our third or fourth birthday song. That was six years ago (in fact I was reminded by the sequel of this birthday party coming up shortly) but the thing about Sick Ridiculous is The Band is Still Active and Never Forget and A Watched Pot Never Boils! So, Solicit MP3 from emporium.

Also, this song is fairly self-explanatory, but for background hints: The party took place at an ice-skating rink (I also think we were under the impression that alcohol was not allowed at the rink) and we imagined ourselves playing this song to an empty room while the rest of the guests were ice skating (I think there was no actual skating).
