My Imaginary Musical Career

August 1, 2014

Recently I was asked if I had ever been in a band, and in the way of the longtime memoirist I thought “I’ve written something about that”. I dug through the big pile of zines I’ve made over the years until I found a newsletter I wrote in 2007 which answers this question.

Bands I've Been In

While I guess I would have liked to have been in a band that released records and played shows, my musical life has continued in the hypothetical. To the above list I can now add Lolly Cake, from 2010, a duo of Simon and I that sound like the White Stripes if the White Stripes had been teetotallers from Dunedin (named after my favourite NZ sweet). The debut and only Lolly Cake 7″ is Atoms and Evil b/w Albatrocity. I put the 7″ art we fabricated into a plastic 7″ sleeve and it looked remarkably authentic. Just add music!

Lolly Cake

That brings us up to date. Things have been quiet on the imaginary band front over the last few years – perhaps now it’s retrospective time and a Pack of Fags needs to get back together, even though we never got together in the first place.
