extensive requirements for a mediocre band = no new bassist

xvegeedgex 8/9/2007 12:55:24 PM

Haha, jesus christ. I haven't seen so many pointless prerequisites in my life. Shouldn't take much effort at all to get in this band.

Wow, so far a bunch of idiots have posted on this...this is going to be hard for them, Fred's left some pretty big shoes to fill. Best of luck...

POPPITY POP-POP! SLAP SLAP! TAP!

in the last 6 months this band replaced they're singer, drummer, and now their bassist. Seems like Chris Arp is a really tolerable bandmate.


baker 8/9/2007 4:19:44 PM

wow, good luck replacing him. he was intense


sgd54 8/9/2007 5:11:45 PM

I play bess and I pretty much meet the requirements so I'm considering this. Is the band christian or just have christian members?


balls_rich 8/9/2007 5:50:43 PM

this is shitty to hear. that bass player was fckin sick. and hope they sound better with a new singer the old one was shitty and looked like a hick. and im pretty sure theyre not christian in any way. i also so this band listed on zigzag.com


ShaolinLambKiller 8/9/2007 7:50:41 PM

surfjam 8/9/2007 10:02:29 PM

rocksteady 8/9/2007 11:53:12 PM

djdjdj 8/10/2007 3:38:29 AM

requirements...check. want to join that god-awful-shitty band...no-check.


prettymetal 8/10/2007 8:59:29 AM

-must know how to make it look like you know what the fck you're playing, when actually it's all stupid tapping shit with blast beats and lyrics about fuzzy animals and other dumb shit...

TheSexMumbo 8/11/2007 12:17:47 PM

in the last 6 months theis band replaced they're singer, drummer, and now their bassist. Seems like Chris Arp is a really tolerable bandmate. - Singer has never been replaced, drummer was replaced almost 2 years ago, ass. Band rips though.


mikeDFTW 8/11/2007 2:13:15 PM

anyone that rips on this band is fcking retarded. just because u don't like them doesn't mean they 'suck.' they are extremely talented and also cool dudes. i don't recall them replacing the singer though.


pilot 8/12/2007 4:07:21 PM

i saw them recently and yes they had a different singer.... but he is the only replacement i know of. this band fcking shreds!


humanlarvae 8/13/2007 10:34:30 AM

adam was replaced with harrison from The Jefferson Plane Crash


fuckyouguys 8/13/2007 9:40:31 PM

I heard Psyopus was changing their name to "Chris Arp and the pleasures that dont have a clue that this band will never go anywhere.
