I’d like to thank the country of France, and Wall of Sound in particular, for saying some lovely words about our two new songs, Everybody Knows, and New Song 3. Not an accomplished francophone? Too bad! I’ll have a decent translation up soon.
It will warm up soon, and when it does, we’ll play at the Burlington on May 1st for the second Slippery Kingdom Fest. New music continues to be recorded, someday it will see the light of day………………………….
It’s a new year, nothing has been posted for ages… Apathy envelopes. Even our fucking cover photo is out of date. That dude with his head turned? Haven’t seen him in months.
That being said, it’s essential to keep putting one foot in front of the other. On January 20th, we will be at Schuba’s, playing lots of new music. One of the bands just dropped out, so we might just play for hours and see who sticks around. On January 15th around 7:30p, we will be on WLUW 88.7, turning air waves into electricity, then into radio waves, back into electricity, and finally returning it to the air, all while struggling to suppress my sailor mouth. The FCC is one more problem I don’t need.
Schubas was a good time as usual…. made especially delightful by the last minute addition of Anthony playing the four string bass guitar. That dude learned all them tunes in a few days and brought the thunder with no sweat. We’ll be at The Whistler on July 14th for a free show benefiting our good pals at CHIRP Radio, and there’s a few new tunes finding their way onto Soundcloud in a relatively nascent stage. Dig.
I was ready to post the usual ‘thanks for coming out, what a good time’ sort of thing, but that Subt show kinda sucked. The highlight of the evening was definitely the two girls getting hassled for washing the X’s off of their hands. Those were the days…
Upcoming shows at Schubas and The Whistler, and new songs in the works, and hopefully a new record sooner than later.
Meanwhile, the winter continues unabated, and Michelles is hunkered down in various tropical locations, sipping singapore slings, and working out new material, which may or may not pop up soon in demo form. Keep an eye on the Soundcloud page for any new additions.
And finally and least importantly, the record should be available on iTunes and Spotify and Pandora and all that kind of stuff very soon.
The mustache bash was a swinging good time, and the lovely people of Indianapolis took very good care of us. Also this week, Impose Magazine did a splendid little writeup about ‘Seasick Accidents,’ and ChicagoMixTape put ‘Instill Confusion’ right at the top of their latest mix, just in time to hype up the show at Township on Thursday the 5th. Dig!
Much thanks to Jen for taking some extremely sexy photos of the band. Also, we’ll be playing at Quenchers in Chicago on November 17th, and at the 5th Annual Mustache Bash at the Melody Inn in Indianapolis on November 27th.
