In Memoriam: Asleep in the Sea 2004 - 2007

I was originally going to post an obituary for Bobby "Boris" Pickett, but something of more importance came up (if you can believe that).

Tonight in Phoenix, Asleep in the Sea will be playing their last show. We first had the pleasure of encountering this band during our first tour of the western United States in the summer of 2005. They made some of the finest music our precious ears have heard, and were, in all respects (to use a word from their own vocabulary) quite "radical". Fortunately, Asleep in the Sea is survived by two EPs and one LP (The amazing "Avenue" to be released this year, but in limited quantity). We wish them luck with tonight's show and can only hope that these three talented musicians will proceed with other musical endeavors in the future. We'll miss you, "doooods".

Here's their myspace page, where you can listen to their music, then purchase their albums.

Cisne and More

Just remembered that I never posted the latest Cisne episode on this page, and would hate to break up the archiving we have created here.

Treasure of the Cisne episode 6: The Good The Bad and The Cisne
alternately titled: You're in Ogre-Country, but you're not Ogres!

Keith Murray and Chris Cain from We Are Scientists guest star as the ogres.

I figured we should also mention a few other things.

First off- we got hacked pretty hard the other day. I felt like Bill Lambier was standing in the lane as I tried for an off balance lay up. A foul was called, and the referee (in this case, the administrators at mySpace) went through the rule book and awarded us 500 myBucks and a dinner for two at myCafe. For more information on this, there is some information up on the information part of our mySpace page.

2. Jeff Hobson received from carnivorous plants for his birthday. He is currently questioning their health, so if anyone knows anything about carnivorous plants (ya right!) try to get in touch with Jeff, to help calm his nerves.

3. We just confirmed a show at Maxwells in Hoboken on May 18th. It isn't up on our website yet, but Maxwell's site tis'
. We will be joined by two stellar starrs*: The Teeth. and Bikini Carwash Company! Damn straight!

4. thats it!
