i will be on halloran’s coup d’etat show this sunday at 6pm. should be fucking fun to see him again we have lots to talk about…specially the day after st scene. i’m already getting my mental playlist ready. love going to 94.9 – why don’t stations like that exist in la?
of course you guys already know we are playing st scene sat night 6:45 at the casbah stage. see you there.
the trip to sf should be cool. nice to read stuff like this - best of from the sf examiner - and this -must hear from spin mag-
see you all there nice and early. we play at 1 not 1:30. we will be doing press in the press area starting around 3 so if u need to find any of us us look for us there. oh yeah, and a side note to all the press in sf…i’ve recently proposed to my dog tony. hence forth i would only like to be referred to as tony’s fiancee in all articles/interviews/press etc etc. please attach that to my name either before or after Francis Ten. I think i prefer it before. Tony’s Fiancee (Francis Ten).
we are very happy to announce that the lovely and talented miranda lee richards will be our very special guest vocalist for both the outside lands festival and san diego street scene. it should be a real fun time having her on stage with us. miranda is awesome – these shows will be very special treat for both of our respective fan bases. in the meantime the search for a permanent female vocalist replacement for our live show continues….we will keep you posted.
recently some comments were deleted from a post announcing our last singer’s departure. i actually had no problem with them. they are what they are- comments and opinions. that’s why i have the option there. if i just wanted every comment to align with exactly what i wanted to hear i would have called the section “kiss my ass” instead of comments. so to everyone who took the time to write a comment and it was deleted im sorry. that’s not how i want this website to operate. i value being real and being honest and being able to say what you think. that’s what i do and quite often faulted for it. i also have no problems with any critic. you are entitled to your opinion. if you do however make it personal with me or my CURRENT band mates that’s another story. that’s where the web and things like twitter gets interesting…. it’s easy to be a real big tough guy. the real test is if you could actually go nose to nose and say it to our face — that’s the kind of stuff i like. anyway, the story here is this… i could give a shit what you say about people that arent in my band and i also dont care if you liked this band for reasons that had nothing to do with the music. talk soon. bye bye
We’d like to thank each and everyone of you who participated in our little contest! Thank you all for sharing our music and spreading the love…
Here are the 3 winners who went above and beyond:
1. Kampy (who will be joining us with his lady at Street Scene!)
2. Ester (will be hanging up north with us at Outside Lands!)
3. BlueGuru (who will be rocking out with us at the HOB tomorrow night!)
Congrats to all of you and thanks again for your continued support!
from the very very sad and unfortunate department we announce that west indian girl and mariqueen have parted ways. due to her recent life and priority changes she will no longer be part of our group. we wish her nothing but the best as she embarks on a new chapter of her new life outside of this band. she sacrificed a lot over the years and her loyalty and professionalism to this family will sorely be missed. she will, however, always remain in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. thank you q, we love and miss you.
how does this affect our upcoming shows in august? well, as cliche as it may sound “the show must go on”. due to the incredibly short notice of this situation there will be NO replacement for the 2 upcoming house of blues shows this week. there will be some sort of replacement or the possibility of multiple guest vocalists for the 2 festival shows in late august. i hope all our loyal west indian girl fans will understand this difficult situation and bear with us during this transition.
that said… bring on the american idol west indian girl show. if you’re a creative female with a killer voice then get in touch. effective immediately we are officially auditioning for her permanent replacement. please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to audition. thanx
