FBO: 'Calling All Failed Bands'


After Kansan failed bands' guerilla attacks to undermine this site -- evident in the Rolling Stone magazine cut-and-paste jobs following the justified Byrds post (see below) -- it's time for a about-face, self-survey of FBO. And it's clear: we are not doing enough. This gut-check prompts the FBO to call out for all failed bands -- with the exception of Kansan failed bands -- to come together on Boxing Day to record a song 'We're the Failed Bands of Oklahoma' in Oklahoma, which will be mixed, made into a video and sent to Kansas as a challenge.

--> Please post here if there is a day just before or after Christmas -- roughly between December 23 and December 27 -- that you could spend an evening with pizza to lend your bass, vocal or drum stick to the first collective FBO anthem.

Note the Stupid Shape:

Note the Shape of Excellence:

By the way the BEST SONG OF THE WEEK goes to the re-release of the opening track of Pearls Before Swine's hilarious Balaklava, a lightly psychedelic, anti-Vietnam War album from 1969 with heavily reverbed, brittle melodies and creepy whispered messages ('all is silent,' 'waiting,' 'Jeezuzz'). The opening song, 'Trumpeter Landfrey,' is an actual recording from the 1880s of a survivor of the 'charge of the light brigade' from the 1854 Crimean War. Trumpeter Landfrey says:

'I am Trumpeter Landfrey, one of the surviving trumpeters from the charge of the light brigade in Balaklava. I'm now going to sound the bugle...'

Shaken and stirred,

A closer comparison of the two maps shows that OK hides, or does not include, it's redneck population of Stillwater, OK.
This being done in a strategic move to remove it's shameful,ill-advised medeocraty. Although does include the gem that is Norman, OK.

Now look at the Kansas map.
It includes Manhattan, the KS equivalent of Stillwater. Although, the map strangely excludes it's slightly lesser-butt-smells-like version of Norman, OK...the city of Lawrence.
(get a world class medical research university, and a couple national champoinships under your belt Lawrence, and we'll talk)

This all from a state that just outlawed "evolution". Not the teaching of, but the process of evolution. See link below.
Way to goooo! Cans Ass!
