Maxwell"s.....January 30th, 2010

We're poking our heads out at the end of January after spending time in the studio recording and enjoying the holidays with family and friends. I can safely speak for myself and my bandmates by saying Maxwell's is a special place for us to play. It's like playing a hall of fame of sorts, so many shows we've been to there..........from Luna to Alex Chilton (which by the way was the LOUDEST show Steve and I have ever witnessed). It's weird because it's *warning: cliche coming* an honor to play there and we, inexplicably, always get a great crowd when we play there! We hope you're a part of it.

So, what now?

The performances are in the proverbial "can" and what we're left with is this collection of songs, finished and somewhat unfinished, waiting to be finalized for posterity on LP #1. There are lyrics to write, melodies to reconsider and possibly change, a handful of overdubs, mixing and mastering.......and how many physical cd's do we actually press when it's all done? Does anyone still buy cd's? (I do, but I also just got a cell phone that can take pictures too!) But that's all unimportant anyway isn't it? What IS important is that this music we made reaches as many people as possible. We have no dillusions of ever making a cent from making music but we also don't want to cynically put it on the internet to float around in cyberspace for eternity either. So,I guess what I'm trying to say is please enjoy our album. PLEASE!!!!! We love you.
