Bass Player Needed (not wanted)

your photo here

We had a bass player once.We don't have a picture so this probably represents him best.He played an amazing part (nearly a solo!) on the ballad Winter In Danvers.He doesn't come around much anymore so if you see any bassists lurking around your doorstep please drop us a line.

Who should win.
You decide.

25 to Watch in 2005


Don Hartmann
Age: “Over 21” Artist Worcester
A true landscape gardener by day (not just some guy who pushes a lawnmower), Hartmann designs gardens filled with plantings, ponds and sculpture. By night, he’s an artist, the occupation he loves most. Largely self-taught, he paints portraits with oils on Masonite in a free, loose “Outsider” style from Polaroids that he’s taken of friends and folks everywhere. So be on the lookout for him, you just might be in his next painting. Hartmann’s only been in town two years. However, he’s already shown at ARTSWorcester and the Art Well, and he’s had four of his “garish” paintings accepted to the national juried show that opens January 7 at the MPG Contemporary Gallery in Boston.

They're Nice People They Are

This DVD looked like a complete ripoff so i bought it.
I forgot how good this band is.
Johnny Spampinato makes me forget about Al Anderson.
The crowd shots are really good too.

We Have Video

We've put two primitive videos on the My Space website.Taken Back is in back and white and uses most of the early shots of the band.Shilling The Rubes is an early version of the song recorded on 4-track.Both videos were made using whatever pictures i could find on my computer at the time.
