My First Band (Andy)
The first band I joined was called The Mad Men and they were into heavy rock, not really my cup of tea at all. I was asked to join them and I just wanted to gain the experience of working with other people. They didn't have much in the way of musical knowledge as I soon found out and I often felt that it was difficult for me to relate to them as musicians. I didn't stay with them for very long although we did manage to get an audition for the TV talent show New Faces. I remember having to take a note in to school from mum requesting the morning off, much to the amusement of my school mates. We didn't make it through the audition on account of the fact that we were truly appalling.
