After a little pre-release for all of our live show pals in Europe for the past few weeks, we are happy to announce that our limited edition 7 inch single: Land Locked / Off Duty Trip on Too Much Rock  is now available at the Schwervon! Bandcamp Store just in time for the holiday gift giving season. I suppose now would also be a good time to tell you about the Free/ All Ages show we’re doing at Mills Records on Satruday Dec. 7th with one our favorite local bands: LAZY. Come celebrate with us and satisfy your cravings for fresh vinyl!  Landlocked_front

“Landlocked” single release on Too Much Rock!

Hey folks. We’re touring in Europe right now so it’s a little bit hard to know exactly what time it is in the states but according to our calendars, here, tomorrow is the official release of our latest single on the newly birthed Too Much Rock record label thingy. We’re very excited and proud about how the song turned out as well as the fact that it’s our first recording since moving to Kansas! You can learn a little more about how this whole thing came together from this excellent entry on the Riot On the Plaza Blog. We’ll be celebrating it’s release with a free, all ages, show at Mills Records on Saturday December 7th with one our favorite local bands Lazy.

Okay, stay tuned for more tour reports from Europe. Tonight we’re at Bosch Bar in Zurich, Switzerland!

Recording Week

This past week we’ve been recording a couple of songs for an up an coming 7″ which is slated to be the flagship release of a series of singles by our favorite local Kansas City Music Blog/Live Show Picture Source/Podcast: Too Much Rock. The A-Side will be a new, original, tune called Landlocked and the B-Side is a cover of Off Duty Trip by the Raincoats. Here’s a few pics of some of the shenanigans.

That pedalboard is one of the best investments I’ve made in along time. Already busting out the RAT pedal that my pal Sam gave me on a recent trip to NYC!

This was our first recording at our cozy new home-headquarters in Shawnee, Kansas. Of course we offer regular sacrifices to The Vaselines alter in the corner.

Recording in the house that I grew up in was a little intense. I have a very intimate knowledge of every corner of that place. As a kid my Dad used to stand at the top of these stairs and scream at me to get out of bed and get ready for school. The slap echo of that stairwell is embed in my brain. It turned out to be the perfect place to record backup vocals.
