SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 9pm(?) part 46 @The Symposium in Lakewood(next to phantasy). w/bebop inferno + (?)

part 45 @ the edge lutheran art gallery FRIDAY, MARCH 26. (@The Edge: Lutheran Campus Ministry + Art Gallery. 8pm. 1844 Euclid Ave(Across from CSU) this was an interesting night. interesting in the fact that there were poets and folk singers all night until we came in with our “bag of tricks”. the folks were all friendly folks and were generous enough to take out 20 minutes of the schedule for us to set up our junk. our homeboys jumbo tron from pittsburgh were in town (to see wolf eyes…and us, of course-a “double header” if you will) and we brought in some other random crazies off the street making a “unique crowd” from the peoples perspectives. WE sold 3 cds! yay!

Part 44 In Bowling Green SATURDAY, MARCH 20 w/ Cotton Museum, Black Tent + N-Tron+George Viebranz AKA steve dracula…something something(its a long title but he is satisfied with steve dracula). lets just say we had “technical difficulties”…the house in which we were originally were supposed to play in had the landlord walk in while we were about 95% complete with set up. needless to say, this was a problem. about 50 college kids were scattered thruouth the house. someone was nice enough to offer to hold the rest of the “concert” in their place. so we scurried over there only to walk in on a completely naked person, screaming into a mic and beating a fisher price turntable stylus onto its bare platter. this was shocking indeed. we proceeded to hurry to setup, only to notice that the next performer got naked as well. people asked us” are you going to get naked also?” we replied no as we tried to plug things into eachother. we did not have enough time…we had nothing done, gear left all over, unplugged… but we tried to make the best with what we had…and that was some feedbackness. and we had to play out of a bass amp when we are used to stereophonic sound…some people thought we were the best of the night….others(perhaps performers) thought we “had way too much gear”….and “lacked a visible penis”. it was one of the most fucked up nights ever……………….you dont even want to know…

Part 43 March 8th, 2004 @ open mic @ the rockwood(lakewood) so we decided we were gonna try the open mic thing. brian brought only a casio keyboard. no effect pedals. hmm, thats pretty different. i came with my guitar and a bag of FX pedals. a very light load. the kid who was letting “everyone” use his amp, decided to pack things up while we were setting up so we ended up just using my little mini boombox that i brought to record the set. oh it didnt matter though, it was plenty loud. we played for about twenty or twenty five minutes…to critical acclaim.

February 12, 2004 Part 42 about 3AM -4:30AM On WCSB for the program Frequency Modulation: our true love. we finally got our chance to get on Betty Crocker’s show and meet the man behind the air signal. it was a great time and he is a super cool dude. we definitely suprised him with our loads of crap, having about twice what he thought we would have. took a while to setup, nothing terribly new for us. he was definitely saying “are you guys ready yet?” over the air-making us look bad in front of all our fans. this was the debut of the dual guitar action for us + there were also two different recordings made-one of just us thru the board and one that went on the air in which B.C. mixed over. good times.

January 17, 2004 Part 39 @ Recycled Rainbow 7.5 every man, “suggested” a more quiet set for this one, but …when we get carried away with something, there is no stopping us. a cd with samples was created, complete with blank tracks. the cd player was put on random so essentially the samples played at random. of course, it was started recording before we were ready so we just kinda went into things and didnt remember to play the cd until like 19 minutes into it, or something. more of that mostly keyboard-less thursday club sound. also available in the “special edition” that aired on press the button the following week.

December 15/16, 2003 Part 34 On the Noize Rotation, WCSB 89.3 feima, a host of the noize rotation was nice enough to have us on the noize rotation, wcsb’s long running noise show, which has since been cancelled. sucks for us cos she was gonna have us back next time. oh well. the show was pretty different as we played barely any keyboards at all. long droning tones and static were abundant as we played for about an hour on the floor of the wcsb studio. this was our first appearance on WCSB. RIP noize rotation. this was also the debut of the 12 channel mixer to ease our stressed out selves. since then we have acquired 2 more to ease things that much more.

December 14, 2003 WRUW 91.1 On Press the Button-Part 33 the idea was simple. “lets have thursday club play OVER the set they did friday night at the asterisk. yeah, sounds simple, but could we handle that and also hear what we are doing today? well, it was scrapped and we just ended up performing with just the kids in the studio for the most part. the second hour consisted almost exclusively of two leap pads (childrens learning toys) being played at the same time. good stuff. the third hour was the most collaborative hour with every man and glacial 23 finally having more free time after filing records a good portion of the night. “you guys look like you are taking care of things alright”

December 12, 2003. -Part 32 Asterisk Gallery in tremont. well, this was a whole night of thursday club. 4 hours plus, although we were supposed to do five. it of course is not shocking that we took to long to set up. “grandmaster” every man of press the button manned the boards for this one, so we got to perform with an extra set of hands. and what crafty ones these were, of course. panning and volume fades galore, which of course can make way for some pretty confused thursday clubbers when their sound cuts out, or, perhaps gets completely fucked with by the time it came out the speakers. i know brian was pretty suprised by some of the sounds his guitar was making….a good time. it has still to be chopped up for release/mp3 purposes. but it definitely is a memorable part of the thursday club vault. oh and some good pictures were taken there, which we have been handing out with discs lately. a fun picture with all goodies in tact…for the most part.

December 6, 2003. Thursday Club: part 31 LoveSpank The Potato Bugs The Alligators ______________ what a line up. lucky us. this is the all csu student lineup, as people from every band attend CSU and know eachother and some even live with eachother (neil from potato bugs and joe from alligators) we got hooked up with this thru our friend neil who needed an opener. he didnt know what he was getting into. they are all hard rock/ punk bands so it was a lil weird…mostly for the confused people attending who got there the earliest…. it went, eh , as expected i guess, maybe a lil better. like one girl in the audience liked us…someone came up to us after and kept telling us we were the worst band in the world. to which i replied “nu uh. i think yr being sarcastic. i think you like us” and “look at me buddy, im a professional musician…you dont think i can take this” well, in the area where it probably counts the most…the owner of the club, michelle i think is her name. she didnt like us. so thats probably not good. she said she is an art major. i told her we were probably closer to anti art. she said “i like anti art” . then she changed the subject. haha. oh well. i cant blame anyone who owns the speakers our music is coming out of for not liking us.

check out to download the entire set or sets of the other quality performers + there is some video POST RECYCLED RAINBOW 7 AND PRESS THE BUTTON this past weekend was a very hectic, insane, and just generally amazing one. with less than 24-hour notice, thursday club was offered + jumped on a chance to perform at the Recycled Rainbow 7 Friday night Fun Set Up “shindig.” We did over two hours of fun sounds that were broadcast throughout the house. Unfortunately many of the arriving travellers had came from afar + were not fully energized after there long car rides/flights/trains/whatever to witness the hole “set” in all of its “glory”. of course the whole thing was recorded + is available on demand for anyone who wishes to hear it. it was a long night, which was only a slight hint at what the rest of the weekend had in store for us. Around six in the morning or so friday while trying to have some music in the cellar, Swoosh from Workeshoppe Radio Phonik had figured he would just take a more direct approach and play with the tuner, since we could not get records or cds to play. StAllio had his radio at hand as well( i dont know exactly who started fuzzin first-it was a very fuzzy night)But i grabbed the old shortwave and we started makin some beautiful static. I attempted to record a room recording to casette but unfortunately it was set to “dubbing” instead of Tape. so we did not get a room recording of the static performance, nor the thursday club set, much to my dismay. StAllio luckily busted out his MD recorder and we were recording to glorious digital stereo. Hopefully a copy of that shall find its way into my possession soon. PRESS THE BUTTON 10-20-03 Of course we were honored to come and perform on the legendary Press The Button program on WRUW. unfortunately, we were late arrivals-literally walking in the door 5 minutes before airtime. luckily the button folks are top notch when it comes to preperation + had their “shit together”. the special guests of the evening was workshoppe radio phonik from Tennessee, who host a radio program not too disimiliar from press the button with callers, etc. they are really on some crazy shit. check out links we will be linking to them very soon(by the time you read this). Stallio was in the studio with us as well. he hails from indiana-indianapolis, i believe. he gets ultra props from the club for being not only a general cool dude but ultra bonus points for having a concept record about cereal. special props to the ladies of the evening, Connie McCue and Your Girlfriend who kept truckin despite their long travels. we had such a good time with these folks and they are truly nice people who are amazingly talented. Perhaps this was only a slight hint at future goodness to come…. it was SUCH AN EXPERIENCE to meet/work with these people (and everyone at RR7 in general) we disected the wires and were soon in on the mix. It was truly a battle royale with each contributor constantly fighting for to be able to hear themselves. there is no doubt Monster clipping was occuring the whole night. let us be thankful for technology to take this and work with it. by the end of the night we had to work around our levels that were nowhere by opting to try new things and leave the equipment behind. i had to bust out my radio(which i was listening to the station to hear the mix) and went over to the booth and hopped over to glacial and his mic. some fun sounds quickly emerged from us. over and throw it on the AM and go deaf for that last bit of the show, not being able to hear what my comrades were doing. it was a crazy night + such a crazy crazy crazy crazy weekend weekend of many experiences that cannot be described in words. The BIGGEST thanks in the world go to Every Man, Dirt Goddess and Glacial-23 for letting us be a part of the events of this past weekend and inviting us, two “strangers” who are fans of a crazy radio program into their house and studio. and their hearts. it was truly mind blowing to the tenth degree. it is just so truly amazing that this stuff goes on folks, let alone practically in our backyards. The “truth” is out there folks. ryan 10-20 2:48 pm. PS i apologize if this is hard to read, i have not gotten too much sleep this weekend. but i would do it again tonight. pats show tiny summary: despite 3 unused pedals + failing equipment, the show was a moderate success with(hopefully) at least a satisfied “customer” or two. and prolly a bunch of people that were too wussed out to tell us that we sucked. Oh and a big F U goes out to the person that threw our cd in the parking lot. well, i guess they could have dropped it… but tell it to our face next time, sucka…cos im sure you come to our website. PATS UPDATE: so i guess the guy did actually throw our cd on the ground, but he also said that for twenty minutes we “rocked beautiful noise” or something like that. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. people.
