Where we practice: Special Costello 

The glamorous rockers have the best beats and vocals in town, and great advice on dealing with neighbours.

"We, Nick Dourado and Jeremy Costello, are two of the three people who are Special Costello. DB Influenza is not pictured."

We have simultaneously been honing our ability to improvise and spontaneously compose as well as writing and practicing our more static pieces. I [Jeremy] write the lyrics and basic song structure, Nick plays the drums/saxophone/rhythm guitar, and DB riffs the lead guitar.

We've always felt the need to practice in our homes over the years. The last three houses that we've rented have had rooms (often more than one) dedicated to making music/recording/housing the gear pile. We receive noise complaints on a semi-regular basis due to our insistence of having a creative space in our homes. Our advice: Know your neighbours and offer them your contact info to avoid police involvement. The sad reality is some people won't respond to this attempt at community development and will choose the police over dealing with you, but at least you can say you made the effort!

We're currently recording a full-length album that will be available digitally, on cassette and maybe on CD. Next Saturday, we're playing at Menz & Mollyz Bar. It should be a slizzular experience in one of our fave queer-friendly, sex-positive establishments! We hope to see you there! Get well soon Joni!
