Hi




Hi, a few things to report on. Thanks to everyone who came to the library show, it was fun and I feel like we all learned a lot.

There is a record store in Buffalo called Spiral Scratch - I've never been there because I hate records, but they had a fire the other day and are having a few benefit shows this week to try and raise money to repair the store. I mention this because they were on the cover of one of our Record Store Day 7"'s, and now they need some dough. You probably didn't think of that when you were flipping your copy on ebay. Even though the guy from the store emailed me and said "Hi Damian", I'm still gonna rep his cause:

6/3 @ Mohawk Place (47 E. Mohawk Street, Buffalo) - featuring Failures' Union, Everything Falls Apart, Roger Bryan and The Orphans, All Of Them Witches, and DJ Donny Shaft - $7 (all proceeds to go to the store)

and

6/13 @ Mohawk Place (47 E. Mohawk Street, Buffalo) - featuring Iceberg and Brick Savage & The Jons - $10 (all proceeds to go to the store)


Speaking of ebay - we're flipping one of our own records to raise more money for the three groups we put out "David's Plan" for. You can read all about them right HERE while you are trying to bid on the record. The record is a copy of David's Plan, except that it's on green wax - something we didn't tell you about until just now. There's like 40 of them on green, and not that cheap see-through green like the 3rd press of the first Fastbreak 7" - nice marble green that kind of looks like fancy shampoo. Anyways just buy it so I don't have to post about records here for a minute.

Speaking of more records, we just recorded a cover of a song called "Walking on Sunshine" by a band called "Katrina and the Waves", because they paid us $1000 to do it and also because we love sunshine (which you probably know if you were paying attention during the whole ChemCom 2007-2009 period). Then we found out that we had to give some of that money to our label. Then just now I found out that that band (minus the singer) makes a million dollars a year from royalties to that song (not even exaggerating) so really we recorded the song to make Katrina and the Waves richer I guess. Anways, you can click right HERE to hear the song if you want, it's kind of funny. It's like a mix between the original and our own song "Crooked Head", because we realized how similar they two songs were while we were recording it at our fancy $400 and hour recording studio in Las Vegas. I'm not entirely sure who gets any royalties when you download the mp3, so if that kind of thing makes you uncomfortable, you should probably just click HERE.

The other thing is that we're playing some actual concerts this summer, and I'd like to use this opportunity to list a few of them right now. In addition to these ones below, you can catch us in Russia, which we are really excited about, and also several other places on that continent that aren't in Shoreditch.
