2003, 1995, 1997, 1975, 2009

The last week or so has been a strange one. We have all been at the studio/rehearsal space at one time or another, but it has yet to be all four of us at the same time, in the same room, with our instruments in hand. However, last night Russ, Jeremy and I took it back to about 2003 (Patrick had an unexpected work obligation) and played Iawokeinacityasleep in its entirety. We also decided to play a handful of songs that none of us realized that we all knew how to play. This included half of Radiohead's 1995 album The Bends and some other assorted classics that we are glad only the neighbors heard. Oh, to be back in highschool...

Anyway, all this got me to thinking about our little band's career and I thought that it might be appropriate to have a little blast from the past. As we work toward the completion of Please Try Again I thought that it might be nice to include a little piece of what got us here on these periodic posts. Today's little snippet is the third track on Iawoke, "Flashlight". Russ will probably kill me for putting this up, but I figure it's worth it. It's in the new sidebar player that we got from the nice folks over at ReverbNation. (Little known fact: Our former band, Milo, was in the video presentation to investors for a beta version of what would become ReverbNation.)

Here's Radiohead's "Airbag" from OK Computer, from when Phil Selway still used to hunch over his kit. Just for fun.
