04.26.11: Liar liar, pants on fire!
Remember how in my last entry I said that my wedding Afterparty was going
to be our last show ever? Well, it appears that the good people of Contempt are
going to make a liar out of me, since they've asked us to play for their big
anniversary party next month. And we agreed.
(Remember when Ozzy did that whole "No More Tours" thing in the 90s? And then he
went and did like, a zillion more tours? Yeah. I doubt we'll be doing much more
after this, but still...who knew our last show would book us another gig,
The lineup will be a hybrid featuring members from the old and (current?)
lineup, so we'll be playing a mashup of old and, well, older tunes. But I
guarantee, it'll be fun. Wear your earplugs, kiddies!
Anyhoo, if you want the details, go to the shows page.
And come out to see us for our very last show ever. Again. I really mean it this
10.04.10: Celebrate and Farewell
So I've got some big news and some *really* big news for you all. For
one, I'm getting married. And oddly enough, that's not the really big news.
Nope, the *really* big news is that the missing: will performing at my wedding
Afterparty, and it's going to be our last show. As in, ever.
*sniff* Yup, it's unfortunately time to say goodbye, but before we do, we've got
one last surprise up our sleeves.
We're getting the band back together.
That's right kids, for one night only, the old lineup will be hitting the stage,
and we'll be doing songs we haven't played in over 11 years!! And to close out
the night, the current lineup will take over, and we haven't been onstage since
2008. (Holy shit, has it been that long already?)
In between, we're staging a Heavy Metal Cabaret with bellydancers, a cabaret
singer, a sideshow carny, a fan dancer, and a ukulele act. (Betcha haven't seen
one of those lately!) Not to mention that DJ Rickilicious will be spinning
ear-shredding metal all night long. Go to my
wedding website and check out all the details. The date is November 13th,
the show starts at 11:00, and I really hope to see some of you there to
celebrate (and say farewell) with us. It's going to be sad, but it's also going
I think I'm even gonna break down and post the lyrics to the old songs. Mainly
because I don't remember them myself. Yikes!
I just logged in again and saw that all of my previous updates for the
past year were never published online. No wonder you guys sent me so many angry
emails asking where the hell we were. My bad.
So the bottom line is: yes, we're still together. No, we're not playing any
shows. But when we start putting together new recordings, we'll get this online
shit back in order, 'cuz right now it's a disaster. In the meantime, we've still
got this site and
My Space, where you can download our tunes for free. And who doesn't like
School is over, and (although we still have no fucking drummer) we've
decided to start writing again. I doubt there will be any shows for a while, but
hey, you never know.
08.18.07: Time out
Sorry for the lack of updates, but we've kind of been on hold while I go
to paramedic school. Which cannot possibly be over soon enough to make me happy.
06.15.06: Welcome, Fred!
The same glitches that have been keeping us offstage have also kept me
from properly introducing our new bassist. Feel free to send me hate mail about
it, I already know how much I suck.
Anyhoo, why don't you stop by and say hello to Fred; it would do his blackened
little heart good.
05.08.06: We're working on it
A few glitches in the system have been keeping us off stage as of late.
Tune in again shortly.
01.02.06: This Just In
We just found out that we were named one of the "Best Indy Release Albums
of 2005" by
probably the most intelligent and insightful metal 'zine on the web.
So just in case you didn't know it already, WE RULE. ;P
What’d I miss?
All the news that’s fit to shove in an archive.
I can’t thank you all enough for your support and kind words. Your support has
truly been invaluable.
I’m not gonna write you into my will or anything, but still, I
appreciate it. ;)
