Re: aloha

hey jop! here you have some new news:

After much deliberation, we have decided to play the CMJ fest in NYC this year. Rejoice. We will be a part of the polyvinyl show at the Knitting Factory on thursday the 23rd. It is a huge show, with all stages going with great bands. We will hit the main stage at eleven. You will show up early to make sure you can get in.

In addition, we are recording that weekend as well. Rejoice again. We will hit Inner Ear for a couple days, where TJ works. The results ought to see release, in the form of a seven inch, before the end of the year. We are all excited. The remaining songs from this session will be added to the pile of tape we are collecting for a full length. And that's the news.


whoaa!

Re: aloha

Cool, thanks for that Vic! Good news indeed... should be gay.

I once saw a Foo Fighters video on MTV at my mum's house and the drummer was wearing an Aloha shirt... I think it was a surf type thing though. I might search the charity shops, I'm sure I can find me a sweet Aloha shirt for £2.99...
