...erm, kinda. :wink:

It's still in it's infancy, not much on there at the moment. But we're hoping that will change soon.

Aw, thanks. They should be soon in the making.

Well, we're a tribute band at least in the sense that we took our name (and, personally, I took a lot of my inspiration) from OR/SW.

Well, we played our first song by OR/SW in public tonight..."Kansas City". Everyone loved it down at the local pub.

We also played a couple of other original songs and covers too.

It was fun, 'cept I seem to be getting a cold and felt a little off on my vocals. :(

I'm off for some chicken soup now.

Good luck you guys, hope the band is a success. "Westfall" happens to be my favorite, although I'm not sure how many fans are with me on that.

We've came a long way since our inception back in March. We're 4 strong now and are about to seriously get busy with recording/promoting/gigging.

The band's first ever "official" MP3 just went up this morning and I thought I'd share it with guys.

Thanks again to OR/SW for being who I look up to the most musically (and who had the most influence on me personally).

Hey, I like the song. I also liked your cover of "If You Stay Sober". Your band name is also my email address/yim sn :) cool. I'll be looking forward to hearing more of your music.

Hey Dan,

I'm not sure just yet. We're just now starting to make plans for gigging. I'd love to meet you sometime though. How often do you make it to the mainland?

Not very often nowadays - I'll be over for the tour and a few days afterwards, and then for some time at Christmas. I don't know about any other times.

I'm sure we can sort something out, though!

Sounds great. I'll be at the London and Nottingham shows. Love to meet you if you're gonna be at either of those.

I think that that is a brilliant idea.
