BTW, the links to the songs on the website are broken.....
The 'Horn's a pretty good place. If you get in there, I'll definitely round up the boys in the band and come on by....Milkman said:Yeah thanks man. We had a meltdown and have been gradually restoring the site. I've let the IT guy know about the broken links. Hopefull he'll have it fixed soon.
We're working on a CD release party later this month, probably in Brantford.
Cambridge? We're working on the Little Big Horn. They have our promo and we'll be following up soon.

I have one of those "what not to do" stories from my last visit to the Horn. A friend of mine was opening for somebody else's CD release party there. He's kinda Dave Matthews-meets-James Taylor , and the CD band was kinda Latin-World Music stuff. A third band gets injected between these two, courtesy of a-friend-of-a-friend and some heavy begging. My friend had a demo of them that indicated their music was a pretty good fit with the others on the bill.
Except, in between booking the gig, and arriving at the gig, they got a new screamo singer, and a new Line 6-full-stack-equipped-metalhead-guitarist, and morphed into a screaming skate-punk outfit.
Wait, it gets better.
Approximately 17 seconds into their first song, the bass player busts a string. Not content to finish the song on the remaining four strings ( it was a 5-string Ibanez of some sort), the bass player yells " I broke a #$^#^#^ string!" into his mike, unplugs, walks off stage, and asks my buddy's bass player if he can borrow his bass. Answer: No. He then asks if he can borrow a string. ( I guess it'll be all "played in" by the time he gives it back?)
Buddy grudgingly agrees, goes out to his van, comes back with a pack of strings, and Bass God hops back up on stage, slaps the string on, plugs back in and tunes up with his amp on "10".
Wait, we're not done....
Throughout this whole scene, the rest of the band has been playing the same 8-bar riff from their opening song continuously.
I still have screaming nightmares where that riff pounds its way into my overtired brain.
They did six more songs. Or maybe it was one more song with a bunch of silent passages in it. It was difficult to tell.
One of those nights where there just isn't enough beer.
