october 2010

autumn marches on.

october contained two interesting events for my own worst enemy. first, at the cantab, we returned for a one night only show as the 'classic lineup' with john cahill on drums. we featured mostly the songs off no guarantees and it rocked!

second, we headed back to the beloved verdant studio in athens, vermont for first of many sessions, again with pete weiss at the helm. it's as good a time as any to start working on a new record, ain't it?

here's a nice pic of verdant, where the magic happens...

two great ways to start off the new year...first, we sold out the lizard lounge on saturday night (opening for mars' cd release) and second, michelle from posted a great pic from the show on their website...thank you lizard, mars, michelle & the folks at bgn for all the support!

kind of a cool very thing here, sue was selected as "miss september" for the club bohemia calendar; all the credit goes to mickey bliss for the photo, calendar design, and for having impeccable taste in subject matter. check it out...

can you believe we have been playing music together for 11 years?

2008 was capped off with an invitation to perform at the weisstronaut's 10th annual holiday bash at church, and it's fair to say that a very good time was had by all. mowe contributed one holiday original, "all i want for christmas (is a shot and a beer)" and took a stab at several rockin' holiday classics: john lennon's 'happy chrsitmas (war is over)', the pretenders '2000 miles', joni mitchell's 'river', the dogmatics 'christmastime' and last but not least, 'do they know it's christmas' by band-aid! extra-special thank yous go out to our guest vocalists (you know who you are...)

and in case you're wondering, my own worst enemy's christmas wish CAME TRUE: nbc network has officially cancelled that awful tv show that stole our band name.

the rumors are all true...your nearest and dearest indie rock power trio is putting out it's third full length record. we've completed the recording and mixing in may, and it was mastered in june. we are in the final stretch of completing all the fine details in preparation for manufacturing, all to get this baby to you as soon as humanly possible. current live favorites such as 'turn it on', 'snowflake', and 'green apple' are featured, alongside a whole bunch of new-ish songs. some extra treats that you will find when you unwrap it are interesting instrumentation (like syth and organ and...can't say any more but we can tell you there is still no bass guitar!), guest musicians and even some cover songs. but trust us when we say this is a pop record that will rock your world, with sonic twists thrown in to make you warm and fuzzy all over. we are self-releasing this one on our own pristine indigo imprint. listen for it on the radio and lookout for a record release party to knock your socks off this fall.

to hold you over, please come see and hear us at the cantab lounge, saturday august 11th and saturday september 15th. more details can be found on our shows page. enjoy the summer sun.
