Fire Works for Everyone, but Us

Happy 4th of July, 2006 everybody.

Only about 4 or 5 people, excluding me, may understand that. Man, there's nothing I hate more than an inside joke.

So what if it's July 2nd, 2010? Shoot me with a firework if you'd like, but I'll wave my freedom flag in your face and whistle Yankee Doodle Dandy all the way to the freedom bank.

Ok, so brick mower is the band we are in. That is Kit, Steve, and myself. But as reported in the last blog, Steve is now in England studying abroad or a broad. I don't know where one's wandering eye may go. So yea, Steve is off eating fish and chips and watching football. (Translation: Eating fried cod and freedom fries and watching soccer). So, we are a little inactive right now in the public appearance department.

That is not Steve, but only what I imagine Steve doing right now.

So, daydreams aside, when Steve's back, we have shows lined up at The Brighton Bar w/ Trinitron, Asbury Lanes w/ Natural Child, Full of Fancy, and RSO, and a show at Buddies w/ Black Wine and The Break Evens. Plus, we're working out a weekend tour with Period Girls that'll take us up to Massachusetts. Hope it all pans out.

Finally, after months of fiddling in the Suburban Ranch Home Compound (srXhc), and at Eric Gieg's house, we're finally on to the mixing process for 8 songs that are gonna be scattered over 7''s and comps. for the next year or so. You can listen to a very rough mix we did of a Sebadoh song, "Ride the Darker Wave," off of their "Gimme Indie Rock" 7''. We tried, but not sure if we did it justice. Enjoy for now.

And for those who might have missed it, here's the super secret track from the old band Kit and I were in, Network of Halos. This was the last song on the "CYFOFT" album. A hit to some. To most, no. Take care.
