Hey! Yeah, it’s been awhile. What a busy, busy summer. Marriages, new jobs, visits to Asia and so on and so forth. It’s fall now and we’re back in full-swing. We’ve got shows coming up, new songs, a full-length in the works and t-shirts with dog faces on them.
See ya out there.
The fine people of CHIRP interviewed us before our big show. Here’s an excerpt:
1. What the dumbest thing you’ve ever done in a basement?
Stephen: When I was a kid, my older sister had her first ever sleep over and I streaked it. Okay that’s not dumb, that’s hilarious. When I was in high school, I had a noise band called The Boot Licking Shovel Diggers. Most recordings took place in the basement, and we had an old upright piano stashed down there. It was beautiful… we trashed it. The guitarist jumped on top of it, and danced on the keys… straight up wrecked it. Allowing him to do that was easily the dumbest thing I’ve done in a basement.

The Coach House Sounds session has arrived! See the video here.
From the Coach House:
“Bryan Gleason shared with me about a new band he started playing guitar in, called Fake Limbs, about a year ago. The video he sent over was of the band performing at Quencher’s as part of Annual Electrical Audio Message Board BBQ. The band sounded great, but we couldn’t have them over for a bit as our summer schedule was already full, and moving forward we were only booking a couple of sessions every few months based on some other pressing commitments… Fast forward almost a year and the band finally made it in. They roared through a sizable set with killer songs, and kind of sounded like Led Zeppelin and Jesus Lizard put through a meat grinder. Not only was their performance a treat, but the band also won the award for coolest gear to grace the coach house. Check ‘em out for their record release show at Hideout on 5/25/12 to see and hear for yourself.”
