YO, check out the song Nostril Caverns: http://myspace.com/coracanning
Dave plays drums and I play guitar. It's a live recording and is an instrumental mix of jazz, rock, metal, etc. that keeps changing.
Dave and I live about 500km apart, so I sent him a midi file of the guitar and metronome so that he could play along to it and add drums. After he memorized the song and wrote the drum part, he drove down to my place and we practised the song together for two days and recorded it.
Btw, the song Nostril Caverns was written before the map Nostril Caverns was made.
I think we're playing a show on October 30th in Hamilton, Ontario. I haven't played live since high school battle of the bands in 2001 (also with Dave, funnily enough), so I'm kinda nervous.

Mega-Slum Sunset has some really groovy drums. Dave seems like a pretty solid player, and the drums are by far my favorite instrument in rock/metal/jazz.
The fast version you guys have on myspace sounds much better than the slower version played live. It's surprising you guys would play stuff slower live though...almost every band I've seen, if they do play a different tempo live, it's almost always faster.
Yeah I'd like to jam with a bassist, but I dunno about vocals.
Yeah, Dave's awesome. I can't believe I know him! haha. The original version of mega-slum was intended to be played slowly, but we played it fast just for kicks. I like both versions. I asked Dave if he wanted to play both live but I guess not (he wrote that song).
