Why do we keep doing this?

Why do I go through this, all my life playing trying to get attention. And I get just enough for the carrot.God it is hard to keep s good attitude with so many people against you. We will play for nothing if we think it benefits the bands in the long run. But to come up to a place and the hired sound is a wannabe rock idiot, not that I'm not a wannabe, but I have no illusions about how "great" I am. The first words out of his mouth about the question, Are we using our gear, because your instruments are still set up, his first words were "I hope so " and brushed me off. Then proceeded to complain that we were using their mics and cords. THEN was yelling at us through the monitors to hurry up, and THENNNN cut our set short. This guy was a complete A@@ ad we drove 1 1/2 hours to get this kind of treatment? I can't wait to play a real festival there. Sertoma Youth ranch is beautiful. Just a word of warning when dealing with the band known as " east coast connexion.

And now there is five

Soul Purpose is happy to announce the addition of Mike Silbaugh to the line up. Mike comes from Bradenton and has been a friend of the band for years. Why, you ask? Because it was the right thing to do. Mikey brings to the table many of his own songs and even more ideas on remixes of cover tunes. Not only his songs, but proficient guitar work, angelic vocals and the coolness factor just went way out of the park! If you enjoyed seeing the porpoise with four, wait till you see the recent improvement on perfection, Mikey. We have immediate expanded our repertoire ranging from The Beatles to the Sex Pistols. Come out and here the difference. Come feel the power. Just come out and see it. You won’t be disappointed. Much love to our family Soul Purpose www.soiledporpoise.com www.myspace.com/soiledporpoise

Review of Needful Things

Needful Things

SOUL PURPOSE

soiledporpoise.com

When it comes to songwriting, Sarasota's Soul Purpose keeps it pretty simple. On Needful Things, the quartet's five-track debut EP, the band sings about keeping your mouth shut ("Big Mouth"), needing some loving ("I Need Your Love") and dancing with hot chicks ("Cool Ya Down"). The subjects might be breezy, but the band has a certain musical sophistication, hopping with ease from quasi-grunge and roots-rock to pop-ska and dub. The nine-minute-plus track that closes the disc, "Yahweh," is particularly impressive, a weighty reggae groove that fades into an extended hand-percussion coda. 3 stars
