Good luck with the "not really a band" as you call it, I'm sure it's more of a band than you think.
Also, cigar...NICE GUITARS! How long have you played?
I just got a recording of the piece I played for my exams (in a group). It was 'The Wind Cries Mary' by Jamie Cullum, and it sounds alright. Not perfect like, but not bad considering the method of recrding was one mic in the middle of all the instruments (me on piano, a bass player, a drummer, a vocalist). I'm a bit gutted that things didn't work out with that band, but it's sort of what made me decide to start trying to start a group up, so sort of a silver lining there.
Anyways, good to hear from you all
PS. What styles of music do you all play?
