Friends of The Canals, Part IV: Audible Detonation

A disclaimer: All written below is based on hearsay and rumor.

My friend Ian, a guy noted for marching in a dress during high school band practice, wanted to join his friend Matt’s band. He didn’t play an instrument, so he showed up uninvited to the band practice with a tambourine. The band, Audible Detonation, was Matt’s brainchild and Ian was just secondary percussion. But soon they became “that band with the tambourine guy.” With Ian playing the role as the hype-machine, like the dancing man in The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Flavor Flav before him, the group began to take off. Then, with a cacophony of sound that must have been something like when you shake sheet metal, the egos started to clash. Although the band couldn’t handle a front man with a tambourine, before they collapsed they produced some high-energy, real heavy rock and roll tunes.
