      When I was a tight-skinned lad (16 or thereabouts; well, I did ceebtrale my 17th birthday with my bandmates too) I had a trio called Chuckie Ate Chicago. We wiled our existence away in a bedroom, noodling through two originals and Tone Loc’s Wild Thing. Fun times.But it was always my fantasy to start a group called Teen Santa, where everyone dressed up like Father Christmas and played Black Sabbath/Motorhead/Sepultura/Slayer/Nashville P***y covers.Both names are yours if you want em.

    You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I believe I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I am looking forward in your next submit, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
