they are back too!
So the time has come for us to dust off our instruments, stretch out our old withering muscles, and get back in the saddle one more time for a couple of benefit shows in September. The reason we're doing these shows is to benefit a dear friend of ours who has been battling Leukemia since February. So now after months in the hospital, intensive chemotherapy, and a bone marrow transplant, he's ready to get back on his feet and we want to do what we can to help.

You may ask yourself, do they still have what it takes? Your guess is as good as ours, but during our four years off, we've been maintaining our chops in many other musical ventures (see right column), and all six members are ready to rip out a set of songs ranging from our first demo tape to our last album.
We hope to see you there. Keep checking back for updates and more details on the shows. We're looking forward to seeing some old friends there and helping out our buddy after his courageous fight over the last few months.
Ben, Mike, Travis, Dan, Scott, and Jeff

Hey, eddie, i was the only person to reply to your Neil On...thread. LOL @ you (us)
I thought you bummed SBB?
and yea, loving Italian stuff at the moment. You like Larsen?
I find them pretty corny :[
I have seies by Larsen...is that who you're talking about?
yea i'm talkin about them. that's the album gira produced, there's a really good story about all of that.
"n and around 2000, the quartet began wheedling artist, label head, and producer Michael Gira by sending him a series of bizarrely packaged CDRs on the 1st and 21st of each month. After the packages stopped arriving, Gira received a letter informing him of his mission: Told to arrive in Torino on the first of the following month, Gira was to spend 21 days producing the band and would return home on the 22nd. Enclosed with the letter was a round-trip flight to Italy and an advance payment. Interested due to the unique circumstances, as well as the recordings he had been sent, Gira obliged. For three weeks, Gira produced Larsen without actually seeing them -- the group played behind a screen and did not communicate directly with him. Instead, the group's assistants aided Gira and provided language translation. The producer would spend hours hearing the band play, watching their shadows, and occasionally would hear the members argue violently. When the time was right, Gira would be told to record. After the recording was completed, roughly ten hours of material were edited down with the screen again separating the producer and an engineer from the group, as assistants provided translation back and forth. Rever wound up being the end result, and Gira released the record on his Young God label in early 2002."
But i've never actually listened to it. It's just something i downloaded yearrrrrrrrs ago, and it's just sat in my music folder. What are they like? My speakers are broken just now, and i can't be arsed getting my zen up cable out, and all that shit
