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.

so many bands are calling it quits lately, this is frustrating.

There's an obituary to Bobby "Boris" Pickett up on the Obituaries Myspace page, featuring none other than the Martha Dumptruck Massacre's Joel Alter...
