hey guys, here’s some sweeties footage of us rocking @ the tank last April. have fun and don’t forget the show this upcoming Monday!!2 comments
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
I hope it’s not too late, this cat’s been around since 2007 & he seems to be all over youtube now!

And here is something useful if you make music: free sounds (not songs) from The Freesound Project & free tracks (mostly beats & a cappellas, including some from famous artists) from ccMixter! Isn’t 2009 is so much better than back in the day, when they had to record Slinkies to make laser sounds? Word. (Did you see the special feature on sound design on the Wall-E DVD too? So cool!!!)

Remember the ethereal & dreamy yet electronic yet classical amazing first song of the Tank party? I was sad that I would never hear it again. Fortunately, Shaun Bateman from resonator mag is all over the internet talking about music, writing, NYC, USPS, etc., and he wrote about the party & mentioned the song! The magic song is called “Passport” by the electronica/pop/classical group tealights (myspace)! I hope you like it as much as I do! Please don’t judge me poorly if you don’t ^_^
p.s. See you Saturday at Europa right?
p.p.s. Did you know there are SECRET emoticons on gmail chat!? And one of them is a robot!? [:|] YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!
p.p.p.s. Ok, I tweeted this already, but the background on this website is *almost* as awesome as the robot. WHICH IS REALLY AWESOME! You have to see it! It’s like it was made by Lisa Frank‘s older fortune-telling cousin from the future on drugs! I think it should be a theme park! (via kmyles)1 comment
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
