nyc magnet piece up

the fine and wonderful folks of nyc magnet did a nice piece on us that just went up. It was a pleasure to hang out with them, eat coconut flan, discuss esoteric New York history and madrigal mashups.

gramercy arms at pianos

cmj did a nice write up of last night's show at piano's which was ... erm ... somewhat "selectively" attended. But it was cold and lots of people including some of us were fighting colds.

Nevertheless we did have a lot of fun.


Doug Gillard was awesome as ever!

He joined us onstage for a cover of his old band Death of Samantha's "Blood and Shaving Cream" that was SUPER ROCK.

a little sloppy too but no one ever said super rock had to be clean!

happy new year

Please pardon the silence here. We've been madly busy recording and getting ready for upcoming shows including our show with Doug Gillard at Piano's tomorrow. Dave Derby has been playing in Doug's band as well and will be turning in double-duty in the field of rock tomorrow night. If you're in the NY area, come on down. It should be a fun show and will be the first performance of the lineup of Dave Derby, Sean Eden, Rainy Orteca and Kevin March. Hilken, will be busy holding down the fort in Boston and won't make it. Renee LoBue will grace the microphone with her backing vocal stylings. Come on down!

More info soon on a Dave Derby-Kendall Meade-Erik Della Penna recording of Scottish songwriter, Sandy Wright's lovely "In the Summertime"
