Noo we are not dead fuckers. We just haven't practiced in like 30 years. Our lives have gotten in the way...and it sucks. It's ok, We'll work around it because we bring the sexy like no other band even more than The Killers. We are so much better looking than them. Anyway, back to reality (whoop there goes gravity), i personally want to start playing shows again but no more pre-sale. Fuck that yo. Shit sucks, and we're tired of using half of our paychecks on that stuff...we come from the hood dude. That corporate bullshit isn't tolerated...we're fucking men. Anyway, who likes sex here? Everyone does, silly. I personally like Apple Turnover..that stuff is so amazing..damn homie i love that shit. I also love Large Strawberry Shakes with Boba from Boba Loca...fuckin dope. In any case, i was thinking about this and...no seriously, i really was and i came to my conclusion that...Juan Solo is possibly the strangest kid i ever met at a show. He was hitting on me..but he was slick with his shit because he pulled some indirect-homo-erotic flirting where he tried to feel on my knee and rub feet and in between sentences he would quickly sneak in the question "wanna have sex?"..but 3 months later he's in the band. Dude...i don't know...but Solo is a strange cat. Peace. BBV.

Whoa..what the fuck? [18 Apr 2005|10:37pm]
[ mood | horny ]

So we sort of abandoned this diary of ours. But we's be back now and will try to keep this updated more often so you can know whats going on with us. Since the last time we wrote in this, we have only played 2 shows. One being at the Key Club with the awesome Never Heard Of It and another @ The Knitting Factory with Handsome Devil. Those of you who went to the NHOI show know it was fucking awesome. While the Knitting Factory would've been better if they wouldnt have CUT US OFF. That pissed us off. Shit is foul dude. Huge thanks to all of you who showed up to either one of those shows. We love you guys. Seriously, what makes us forget about all the bullshit around us is playing the music and meeting and talking to all of you guys. Yea, we've also been writing music. We have a few new songs you might catch at the shows. Alright, well here are some pictures of the April 16th show and some older pictures you might enjoy. Peace.

So we don't update this thing. Sue us. Yea we recorded some tracks and we're really happy with them and how they came out. We're going to receive new re-mixed tracks and THEN they'll be ready to sell. Along with with "Murder on Leighton" and "Today" on the CD. Thanks a lot to Danny from Large Marge. In other news, we have a big big show on Feb 8th @ The Knitting Factory with AUDIO KARATE, Leftover, InMemory, Saving Daylight, and Limitpoint. If you people want tickets contact us, any of us and we'll hook you up. This is a show you cannot miss so don't miss it. Tickets are $10.
We are also writing new music. We just completed a song called "The Bowling Alley Predicament" i like it. A lot. A lot. We might play it on the 8th if we can perfect it. Also, Juan is no longer Juan. From now on he is Juan Solo. He will not respond to Juan but to "Juan Solo" Well that's all for now in a nutshell. Go make love and be veggies. Peace lovers.

Another year gone. [02 Jan 2005|05:12pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

Well...Happy New Year. Let's hope 2005 is awesome. For the band, it's starting out quite well. We've been in the studio for the past week. It's been really fun so far and it's been the best recording experience we've had so far and most important it's sounding really good. We have to give it up to Danny (B Double D) from Large Marge for hooking us up with a good ass recording and being cool as fuck. We're recording BBV, Sergio's Revenge Part 2, Hungry and Addicted, and Where Do We Go From Here?. We've got guitars, bass, drums and almost all the vocals down. We can't wait till it's done so we can show you. Well that's about it for now. We had pictures that Juan took with his camera phone but you know technology, always fucking up. Sorry.
The show on the 27th was awesome by the way. Thanks to everyone who showed up and supported. It had been a while since we played live and it felt good. Also, we've come to our final conclusion. Pre-sale fucking sucks. It's hard to find a good good show that doesn't want pre-sale now though. It's hard to get the tickets to everyone and this past show we had to walk around in the pouring rain to sell the tickets. Sucks. Well that's all for now....take care, we shall be back. Peace. BBV.


Grandpa Dennis rocks.

Yo, sorry for the lack of updates. Lately we haven't had much time. But never worry, things are coming up soon. We are planning to record in a few weeks. The plan is begin during the Holidays and finish after but plans might change. But expect new recordings. Danny from Large Marge is hooking it up, that dude is awesome. Fo sho. Alright...We need to practice. If you go to the theatres at the Grove, you'll see Juan. He lives there. We want to apologize to Peter for having to cancel on his birthday party. Serious issues have come up for me and i couldn't set them aside. We'll make it up bro. In other news i fucking despise the Tobacco industry. Biggest pile of fucking criminals and murderers. THEY should be put in Jail. For lying and giving such bullshit propaganda and killing people. Shameless fucks Ok..i'll save it for later. Alright..PEACE.

DECEMBER 27TH !! @ THE KNITTNG FACTORY. 9PM! BE THERE!!

A not so detailed bio... [27 Nov 2004|02:46pm]
[ mood | cold ]

So this be Erick. I'm going to type up a bio of what we've been through so far. It's only been 3 years and we're just getting started but hey..it's been a hell of a ride so far.

So it all started in April of 2001 (We were 13) when Marvin and I brought up the topic of starting a band. We were both into the same music and we thought it would be fun. We decided we were going to do it. So i had a bass and a guitar, and a few weeks passed and Marvin got his drumset and we started jamming. But before we started actually doing anything, we needed a bassist. Marvin brought up the fact that he had a neighbor who played guitar, SERGIO. This is how it went down:

Marvin: Hey..a friend and i are strating a band. Wanna join?
Sergio: Ok cool, let me get my guitar.

We were playing in no time. We started off in Marvins room and boy oh boy was it hot and stuffy in there. We were having fun and everything but there was a slight problem, we were all begginers. So it was kinda tough. We played and put stuff together all in Marvins room. Eventually, it was too loud and way to fucking hott in there so we moved to his backhouse/garage aka The Oven. We started making our own songs and covering Blink 182 a lot. We practiced for hours and hours daily that summer. December came and we realized that we need to play shows. We played a birthday party (which i still i haven't seen the video to!) So we played that and probably sucked ass but we loved the thrill. We didn't know much so we set up a show in January 2002 in my backyard. Like...6 people showed up. But fuck it..it was fun. Next thing we headed for was a venue. We called up the Whisky and we were amazed at how easy it was to book it. The thing was, 50 tickets sounded like hell for us back then. But we did it. We played with a band called Local Panic. Marvin seemed to like them. So we continued to praactice and write better songs. Get better equipment haha, played some shows and made some friends.
May came a long and we had songs and we wanted to record. Our shitty little sound recorder just wasn't cutting it anymore. We used to record on this little recorded Marvin had and we would listen to it and sometimes take to people so they could listen. But we wanted more, so Jesse Kirberger of Downplay at the time hooked us up with the place his band was recording at. That guy is awesome. But yea it was a studio in the Valley. The name i can't remember or the guy's name but it was in his garage. We don't remember much but we were fucking excited. In 3 days we recorded 3 Months, The Thing's We've Done, Will you Hold My Hand, Blow out The Candles, She Said and Never Alone but that sounded so bad we never even put it on a cd.
At this point we played anywhere and everywhere we could. Time passed and we continued to write more songs. Played at different places and parties and birthdays.
December came along and we were playing a battle of the bands at the Martini Lounge on Melrose. It was a good show, we lost to some rap group but it was fun. After the show we all went upstairs and i met some kid named Juan. He was from Fairfax and was there to see his friends band. He was a strange kid and all he talked about was his band Six Second Man and liked to put on eyeliner. He was a strange character but in the end we decided we were going to set up a show together. So anyway.. we were tired of the recent cd we had recorded so we wanted to put something else out. The next weekend we went into LoveJuice Studio's in La Habra and recorded a 5 song cd. With Enemy, Sergio's Revenge, Statement Made, You Know That I Care, Justify Tonight. We were proud. Yes. So again, we distributed and played everywhere and anywhere we could. Time went on and we all kept talking to that Juan character. I was thinking of the idea of adding a 4th member and the guys agreed. We tried out a few people but none of them worked out. I asked Juan and he was into it. He tried out and we never said anything. So we went on and about 3 weeks later we asked him to try out again and this time we decided to let him in. Bamm..April of 2003 Juan was in the band. Of all the people, he just seemed to fit in right. He adds something else to the band. We continued and wrote more music and it had a different feel to it this time. That summer we went and record some more. Back at Love Juice we recorded Bad Frequency, Some Things Will Never Change, M.E., Capsize, It's Quite Alright, Set For Two and Apple's Rock. Again..we played as much as we could and distributed everywhere. At this point all we were doing is playing shows and promoting. Marvin broke his ankle and that held us back a bit. He was out from November 2003 to February 2004. We started playing again and making up for the lost time. We went into teh Studio again and recorded a 2 song demo. Today and Murder On Leighton. With these 2 songs i think we did a good job as a band and made it a good solid recording. So here we are now...November 27th, 2004. We're 17 and 18 and we're a 4-piece. We've seen a lot and done some stuff, but we're just getting started. Peace.

Well this is our livejournal. Feel free to add us when ever you want. All the guys will update this as much as we can. Expect lots of preaching from the part of Erick, and lots of nonsense from my part (Juan). We'll comment on shows, recordings, and try to keep you updated on everything the band is up to.
