Mark had recorded a bass line since the last practice
Adding another verse to the existing recording
The recorded the second chorus with the variations on the words
Added an 808 bass drum for the "boom" after each line of the chorus with a kick drum to give it more punch.

H-bomb Lyrics

(or at least our interpretation of the lyrics. Fully aware that most of them are wrong.)

insert any old adjective anywhere,
It doesn't matter because they'll find pretext arm fall
It's easy cuz they're just sluts, they're just sluts micro-chrome
your bed is like a luggage saying deeper creepy eyes

Go get the H-Bomb

Bryan recording sax parts for the song
he did a scooting thig on the last solo and we then had him theme his part to use that style more.
At the end he squelaed "H-bomb" during the fade out and we decided to keep it for fun.

Working the the Ladybeard cover "dust and shadows" for the show
decided to try the whole thing staying on the ska vibe instead of changing to rock on the bridge.

Ladybeard Lyrics

twisting from the inside out
unmasking all i knew of you
bleeding from you drowning shadow
sinking up from the ground
grasping at the night you-- sleep with me theres no tomorrow

you can not run from me
you have no legs to fly
you have no arms to crawl
in my arms you'll die

cling to my empty shell
you do not know the hell
im living through and giving you
in your arms I feel alive
when you're away a wanna die
all my tears are dust and shadows

you can not run from me
you have no legs to fly
you have no arms to crawl
in my arms you'll die
in my arms you'll die
in my arms you'll diiiiiie

Spill the love straight from your heart
feel the sheets all torn apart
shredded by your drowning shadows
sinking up from the ground
grasping at the night you-- sleep with me theres no tomorrow

you can not run from me
you have no legs to fly
you have no arms to crawl
in my arms you'll die
in my arms you'll die
in my arms you'll diiiiiie


Shadows practice take


After we worked on doing Roulette for the first time live teaching Eric on the guitar
Showed eric the chorus part and worked with him to play it on the one instead of adding a rest at the begining like he was doing.

Dust and Shadows - Bryan with just play along with the ska rhythm.
We are ending H-Bomb by Tom starting the chorus melody then ending on the 1234 echo end together
on roulette just do the regular chorus at the end 2 times, vocals back off a bit on the second one so the sax can solo.
End on the regular rhythm for the verses and stop.
