Next month we will be heading down the coast to record with none other than Jack Shirley (Atomic Garden) down in Redwood City. Our bags will be packed with new shirt designs, "A Glut of Plastic," "Anxiety Medication/Reducer Flexi," and a fresh re-release of "Counterproductive" Thanks to Birdsy of Trench Art Records.
Played some awesome shows in BC and the PNW with "TYRANTS" from PDX over the past week. Thanks to everyone at the Red Gate for making an awesome Vancouver show happen, and to "THE COLTRANES" for raging through Kamloops BC.
HEALTH PROBLEMS: A Glut of Plastic: Cassette It took two of four songs for me to realize that there is no guitar on this album. I didn’t miss it. As a guitar player, I didn’t even take it personally. We’ve had our share of spotlight. Besides, the superior musicianship, riffage, and controlled chaos created by David Dempsey on drums and Dan Shaw on bass is enough to please the ears and keep the brain alert. Vocalist Ian Kurtis Crist does a mix of hardcore vocals and spoken word with thoughtful lyrics. He’s got a real presence that is working overtime to keep up with the band, but succeeding nonetheless. –John Mule (Self-released)
