You won't find these tracks anywhere on MySpace, and MySpace thanks us for that. Apparently, you weren't so lucky.
If you were looking to sample the "good" tracks, you'll have to go to the MySpace for that! Hey look, there's the link right over there! -->
|jak and a gun
|scott and a truck
|what the crap IS this, guess you better click it
|alonzo and a vent
|mr. smiley and banjo's mascot vince with an axe
|we fooled the crowd into thinking we were a real band. it didn't last very long.
|scott dons the hat and all hell breaks loose
|jak screams his ass off and alonzo finds something amusing
|now everyone is laughing. jak is laughing behind the evil pisspants facade. pickle plays on and laughs ten minutes later.
|scott describes his wardrobe as "douchebag darrell". who are we to disagree?
|pat sajak and banjo's mascot vince with a submachine gun
|comrade pickle can wail like halford. he just doesn't want to for the likes of you
|i don't even know what's going on here. if you think you know, email jaklocke @ gmail.com and let me know
|scott decided that drinking was better than banjo. he was right
|banjo minus one do some crappy punk rock for the crowd's chagrin
|did you see candy sitting in the corner? she's been in almost every picture, you know. of course you didn't -- because she's a NINJA.
|barth and banjo's mascot vince with a machete
|banjo played... and for whatever reason, it kept on playing
|it's pickle and jak. i couldn't come up with anything else for a caption.
|any way you look at it, this is a strange thing to see
|the most welcome sight the garage has ever seen: jak announces the end of the banjo show
|this angel thing was smiling before banjo played.
|mr. clean and banjo's mascot vince with a scythe
|banjo's surprise "show" at alonzo's lounge (no relation to our drummer). this was taken right before the song fell apart. we suck! god, we suck! and where the piss is pickle?!
|the last picture ever of 2006's banjo lineup
|"uwaa" says pickle in the last known picture of him
|playing in banjo takes lots of practice
|lost the election for mascot, not even a runoff
|bert and banjo's mascot vince with an icepick
|even mike cannot penetrate the wall of banjo
|what's this? is it a practice? no, that can't be true.
|mics on drums? oh no it's not a banjo recording session is it?
|it is! god exists and he hates us all!
|captain kangaroo and banjo's mascot vince with a chainsaw
|something was funny i guess
|who could it be now? da da daaaa da
|the two latest additions to this banjo thing. these cultured gentlemen bring a new legitimacy to the latest studies of the relation between banjo and high literature. i present to you jp and gordo.
|jp and viking blod
|artist's rendering of scott deciding to join banjo
|pokey minch and banjo's mascot vince with a morning star
|artist's rendering of jak and the initial concept that led to banjo
|artist's rendering of gordo hearing the banjo ep for the first time after joining banjo
|a rare look at a banjo practice in progress
|as you can see here, scott's head can be used as a microphone if needed
|gordo heard there was going to be someone taking pictures for the banjo site so he spent two hours before practice positioning his drumset to make sure his face was completely obscured
and banjo's mascot vince with a blunder-
|this proves that at least 2 out of 4 banjo members agree: ceilings and curtains are more thrilling than even playing in banjo
|he was all set to pay two dollars for a picture with banjo before jak killed him. scott took pity and gave him a picture on the house
|scott loves him some king diamond
|jak likes to mentally run through all the curse words he knows before a banjo show. it pays to be prepared!
is the moment the world waited a year
(inside the brackets, mentally put either a question mark or a period, depending on your own opinion)
|giygas and banjo's mascot vince with a gatling gun
|jak and scott trade some lukewarm lixx
|square dancing is strongly frowned upon at banjo shows, unless you're zach and jeremy of course. and look, it's 2006 banjo alum alonzo back there!
|revealed: the reason alonzo left banjo was to grow a brightly colored tail
|jak's jawbone briefly detached itself at this point
|gordo and scott discuss advanced macrame during the show, and who the hell can blame them. jp longs to be a part of the dialogue and jak seems to be crying about being a part of this terrible terrible idea
|cyndi lauper and banjo's mascot vince with a cattle prod
|special slash fiction banjo edition: scott proposes to jak who is fixated on gordo who jp is also wanting. meanwhile, gordo is staring lustfully at both the bartender chick as well as the doorman. the end.
|ok, i was able to squeeze a big shipping joke out of the last one. i'm tapped out. there's really not much happening in this picture either.
|jak passes the solo over to scott who passes gas
|adam was not expecting giygas. NOBODY expects giygas.
|jak and gordo
|alex trebek and banjo's mascot vince with a nail bat
|hey what happened? banjo leaked to half its size somehow
|jp and the albino rhino blues explosion
|scott and jp tell jokes and there goes jak's jaw again
|something was funny. and you'll NEVER KNOW WHAT.
|and with no warning, banjo leaked to half its size again
|data and banjo's mascot vince with a hacksaw
|jak in this pose means one of two things: A) it's almost time to end the song, or B) someone really screwed up something back there. this being banjo, take a wild guess
|the original banjo brothers, jak and scott
|jeremy never saw the party hat coming, he will be missed
|at the end of the show jak told a bedtime story. if your vision is sharp enough, you can read it on the page he's holding in this picture
|$2.00 picture #1: banjo and the bar's bartender
|telly and banjo's mascot vince with a poker
|$2.00 picture #2: banjo and liz
|a banjo draws near! command?
|pray that you never wake up to this sight
|it's almost like an optical illusion, sort of like how banjo is almost like a band
|banjo came early this year! check under the tree, let's see what banjo left us! you won't like it.
|gumby and banjo's mascot vince with a grenade
|fact: the first three songs sounded almost exactly the same. the crowd didn't seem to get it. good.
|jak's head exploded fairly early on in the set. for the weaker- stomached, we changed the blood color to brown.
|what's scott laughing at? probably that 60+ people paid five dollars to see this stupid shit
|banjo's biggest fan. man, that joke never gets good.
|notice that banjo set up to block the exit. well played, banjo, well played.
|simon cowell and banjo's mascot vince with a molotov cocktail
|jeremy tells his bass that it will all be over soon while jak morphs into sonic the hedgehog
|scott does the old "flip the guitar over your shoulder" thing. the third time he did it, it impaled jak in the guts. it was a mess. no, no pictures of that.
|jak screams something so crude that scott's head explodes this time
|look, a picture
|ok this is why you never lend scott your guitar. in case you can't tell, he's attempting to shove it into the earth excalibur style. it's not anyone in banjo's guitar though, so fuggit.
|dick cheney and banjo's mascot vince with a drill
|and the usual relief inducing statement: "we were banjo, good night". the end of a banjo show is like exlax or something.
