We have had help from various friends on our recordings and live performances. The main players being T.J. Prendergast, Brian Smith, Jesse Brakefield, and Chad Stockslager. All of which are well seasoned and very talented musicians.
Since our beginnings, we''ve become much more prolific than we would''ve ever imagined, given our penchant for chemistry experiments and consumption. These, among others, being direct reasons for our decision not to play out often. However, with the release of "Tonsils, toes and everyone knows…." we are planning to change that. The album will be released (09.08) on Indian Casino Records, based in Seattle, WA (https://www.tradebit.com), and will be distributed online through iTunes, Rhapsody, and CD Baby, as well as sold at shows, if we decide to play some…
