Yup, the new CD is finally out, it's called Tuesday Morning Hangover and now it's time to celebrate. We hope you'll join us as we put to rest nearly 6 years of sweaty, booze-addled, finger bleeding, tear swept nights-after-work spent making our labour of love. We're really excited to announce that Caterpillar will be joining that evening as well as Tony Travalini & The Stilll Lifes and Sam Smick. Also, for this one night only, everyone that attends will be able to buy our CD for the low low price of only $3...yup 3 bucks. Now that's a bargain! But we will only be selling it at this price for this one night only!

We are getting ever closer to completing the recording of our new CD. A couple of weeks ago I sat down over at the studio and started to go over the tracks that we had so that I could compile a list of tasks to complete. To my utter surprise that list was very small. I supposed after working on this on and off over the past 5 years or so that we should have some sort of end in sight. Right now I think we are going to have a total of 10 tracks (maybe 11), one of which is my 14 minute opus The Profiteers which is nearing completion. All drum and bass tracks were finished last spring with the intention of finishing the recording this summer. But then summer hit and we found no motivation whatsoever to work on recording. So we ended up working on practicing and writing some new tunes. Now that summer is over and the chill weather is here, we can focus now. After today, we just have a couple of vocal tracks, some percussion and other minor finishing touches and then we are FINISHED!
With the end nearing, I thought this would be a good time to revamp the website to celebrate the impending release of a CD for which we don't even have a title (ideas anyone, anyone?). In the coming weeks, I will be adding more stuff to the site plus some samples of songs from the CD which you have probably not heard yet. Also, you may notice that I am keeping a similar theme as our old website. That picture of the teepees in the background will be the cover of the new CD so I thought it was appropriate.
Maybe I can even get the other guys to start blogging on here since my last entry was from what....2007??!!?
Yes indeed, we had a lot of fun playing the Delaware Music Festival...as always. The weather was a bit on the iffy side: it was wet and cold as hell for a mid-April weekend. I think this really kept a lot of people home as it always seemed there were better crowds at past DE music festivals.
With so many bands and so little time we didn't get a chance to catch half the bands we wanted to see. Got to hang out with our friends Tony Travalini & The Still Lifes through most of the night. This is a great local band who've been on the scene here in Delaware for far longer than either of us care to mention. Unfortunately they played the night before and we missed their set. But it was great fun catching up with those guys...just like the old days huh?
...or, how I learned to stop fearing digital recording and embrace Pro Tools.
So what's the score now, game fans? 2 years and counting?
Geez, who knows, but it seems as if this tale of the tape has been going on longer than a Dostoevsky novel. Back and forth through smoke and booze-hazed Monday evenings we had trudgingly committed to tape our collective output one song at a time. Lovingly rendering each instrument, each note as if it were our last. Filling reel after reel of what remained of this Earth's final few thousand feet of untouched 1/2" Ampex 456 Grand Master recording tape. When it seemed as though we were finally getting this beast off it's ass and moving forward...we hit that proverbial brick wall: the limitations of 8-track analog recording.
Just though I would post some pics from the studio...
Here's some of the stuff that helps us make the noise:
