Did you know that we are at war with an Earth band? That’s right. We are. I wasn’t going to mention it, but then I realized that if we didn’t tell you the odds would be in the favor our our enemy because there are more people in their band…
Los Campesinos! you are going down.
Punk rock may have broken all our heart’s in 2007 but that doesn’t mean I will sit idly by when a band with much more popularity almost steals our August show at the Mercury Lounge.
Yes you heard me right…we were almost bumped off that bill so that Los Campesinos! could have a PRACTICE show before their Bowery Ballroom gig. Maybe this is because they couldn’t all fit in a practice room — there’s SO DAMN MANY OF THEM!
And that is why I thought you should know, lil fanbase, because I’m small and need protection. PSYCHE!!! ATTACK!!! You are going down Campesinos! (Also, Aleks…just because you are no longer a Campesinos! doesn’t mean that you are safe from my wrath)
We are going to win. It will look like this.3 comments
We have been informed. We are now playing at 8:45 p.m.* at The Annex this Wednesday. Not 9:00 p.m. as previously stated. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you soon! ^_^
*This is the time that The Annex told us. They seem pretty punctual. Lame, right!? I think time in NYC should be a function of subway delays, the weather, and the latest heel style. Also, everyone deserves a 15-minute window.No comments
We’ll be playing at Lit Lounge with R Sun (all the way from the SCARIEST PLACE in IOWA yo!), Rig 1 (“experimental” yet familiar & danceable!), and Doctor Scientist (they will make you jump around harder than Jillian Michaels!). We’re going on last, more deets to come.
I can’t even begin to explain how very excited we are. I haven’t been to Lit in years! In preparation, we’ve been working really hard on some new rhythms & techniques! Here is some secret footage!
Doesn’t the synergy make your skin tingle? Now you know: we are amazing even when we’re rehearsing. The only thing that could make us better is another keyboardist! Where are you???
P.S., We’re still playing at The Annex w/The Drums on June 10th. ^_^2 comments
Do you remember the excellent New Wave band Elkland (their debut album was Golden in 2005)? They don’t exist anymore, but the lead singer, Jon Pierce, started a new band called The Drums, that is also pretty excellent. They will be playing at The Annex every Wednesday in June. And we will be playing with them on the second Wednesday!
More details to come. 152 Orchard Street, NYCNo comments
Prepare yourselves! We will be playing with The Drums! More details to come!
Also: pics & videos from NY meets Japan will be uploaded after I sleep and my cold goes away. If you missed J’aime & I’s surprise (I did too, it’s no one’s fault), you are in luck! We have video of the post-set photoshoot of the surprise! Please buy some more copies of New Wave of Attack Mode Pop so I can buy a DV camera… ^_^ j/k, soon we will have different things for you to buy, through the internet, so you don’t even have to go to one of our shows! Think of all the money & calories you will save on alcohol!No comments
Hi!!! Did you attend Death By Audio 12.12?!?! SO MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE!! It was totes awwwwwesome!!! So I would like to show you all about it if you were not there. And if you were, THANKS X A MILLION!! We had many new songs and it was really the best that everybody was dancing. I wish we had video of crowd dance moves…
There were so many rad things about this show. It had so many bands!!! We played with Popo, Hermit Thrushes, J’aime & I, Anamanaguchi and The Mae Shi. We have wanted to play a show with Anamanaguchi for a long time and so it was very exciting to play with them finally.

hello hello! yes, it is rainy and cold in nyc and we haven’t written anything in a while, but do not despair! many fun things are happening in the next two weeks, please take note:
ITEM 1: We are playing at the MERCURY LOUNGE on Tuesday, October 7th! “It’s about time!” you say? We totally agree! We’re going on at 6:30 p.m., which is just enough time for you to get out of work, have a nice romantic dinner, take a walk to the Mercury Lounge in the crisp autumn air, relax to some synth pop with a neat Jameson, & still get back home before your bedtime! ($8 for 5 bands! That’s like less than $2 a set! what a deal! We are up first, Levy, Hollands, In Cadeo, & Bellmer Dolls to follow).
ITEM 4: Last Year’s Model is practicing at Complete Music this Saturday even though MODEL-002 has another wedding to go to in the evening! We will be perfecting our moves for the Mercury Lounge show for you! Also! We won’t be smoking during our breaks, so feel free to stop by and ask us for autographs. Our hands will be free!
ITEM 5: Robots are finally being put to good use! This one was spotted in Soho offering to “hold” peoples’ “hands” & “go for a walk”. Keep up the good work, robot brother! Soon, we all be able to live the spaceship-cruise life 24/7, just like in WALL-E! Can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3No comments
Hello again!! I have been in front of this computer for too long, but I wanted to share with you a couple pics from yesterdays block party!! Model-002 organized the whole thing, which was a lot of work, so everyone should thank her. For my party, I helped out a bit on the day of, but really I just showed up and played. But it was such a great show!! It started off with our good friends Bill Grady and Evan Neel both doing acoustic sets…Now normally I would never support acoustic sets, but then, Bill Grady and Evan Neel are both so radical!!! Next came J’aime & I!!! If you haven’ seen them, you really gotta. kawaaaaiiii!!! <3 <3 <3 j’aime & i totes stole my artificial heart!!! Anyway, here’s a couple pics. These pics are by Matt Occhuizzo not Evan Cairo (like everything else is)
SO THERE’S A COUPLE FOR YOU. I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY IT. GOOD NIGHT.No comments
