As some of you know, my younger brother Brendan, best known as Eddy Demon, is a rock star. This is the story of his band, Total Annihilation. They are a punk rock band, Brendan (11) is the lead singer and guitarist. Pete plays drums (he's 14), and Damon and Comte play bass and guitar respectively. Those two are in their mid-30s.
My name is Brendan thorn or Eddy Demon and I am eleven years old. When I was five I used to entertain my mother and father. I would stand at the end of the bed make skits. I demanded attention, with a big orange bat.
When I was one I'd struggle to get out of the car seat and only listening to muddy waters on the car tape player would tame me. At age eight I'd fantasize of having a rock band, at age nine I looked for a worthy stooge, and dorkmisterhormonyact or Damon squire was worthy of such title.
Damon squire is 35, plays the bass, and knows how to… What's the word ah yes ANNIHILATE. I gave dorkmister all the CD's I made, and that's how stooge number 1# fell in to place.
I searched the long dirty road for a drummer, not a lot out there that wants to take the job. I walked far (a block) I didn't know my shoes could take the beating; I heard a familiar sound, a sound I learned to love, the sound of a drum. I hurried to the door of the house of music, I knocked three times, a woman answered the door, and she took one long look at me, and said "take off your shoes." I did what she asked, ran down stairs, and looked at the unused power of ROCK, Pietro D'amato. Pete D'amato is fourteen and knows how to ANNIHILATE. I told the magical boy of my journey, and asked "if you and I could ANNIHILATE together?" He accepted with out another word, I slipped on my shoes and went home.
To rock in a basement, is hard work. You see we like to jump around, and with hardly any space, it was not probable. Denied space, yet denied rocking never. A year passed and the neighbors complained so we moved to a Lennon's studio, a month went with continuing ANNIHILATION but the prophesy was not for filled for internal rocking and finally the last stooge fell into place Camo Spice or James Comte.
He plays guitar like me, he's 35 and he knows how to ANNIHILATE thus ending are lovely experience of TOTAL ANNIHILATION.
