So another great band cover parody we photographed – N.W.A. – if this was turned down by the magazine article, can you imagine what they chose?!? Just think about it…let it sink in…yea!!!
And if the magazine article coming up next week wasn’t enough – we are climbing the comedy charts on Reverb Nation! We are currently ranked #12 in New York City! Who would have thought it? You can help us break into the top 10 by going to our Reverb Nation profile and becoming a fan, listening to our songs, watching our videos, etc. Every little bit helps! Thanks and stay tuned for more awesomeness!
Yes, it is a little early for April Fool’s Day – one week away! But we managed to pull an April Fool’s joke on ourselves. Due to scheduling difficulties, we had to cancel our April Fool’s Day show. I know, it is very sad. But don’t worry! We are going to be featured in an article in Latency Magazine – check out their website here – and we are planning for a big show soon! Keep coming back for more news. Oh, and sorry about no April Fool’s Day show.
So, the magazine feature on us is being published on April 1st – we know what you are thinking and NO, this is not an April Fool’s joke. Things are actually picking up for us. And to give you a taste of what is to come, we are releasing our first parody album cover photo today! This is just the tip of the iceberg…just the tip…
If we decided to be a Bee Gees cover band, what would we call ourselves? The Bee Jays? What do you think?
So, it tentatively looks like we are going to be profiled in a local magazine. We know, we are shocked too! So, the idea was bandied about that since we are a parody comedy band that we should do some parody band photos. The discussion on our Facebook page reached epic proportions when it came to suggestions. Here are a few of our favorites:
This one would probably require a time machine…
This on the other hand…
Astoria’s most dangerous group?
Hmmm, but who would be Carnie? Just kidding, we know…
Much like the “Pretty Boy Floyd” photo that is the ‘feature image’ of this post (all the way at the top) – this is NOT happening…unless we get some flesh colored body suits…
What are your thoughts? This may become an ongoing ‘thing’ that we do. We would love to hear what album cover you think we should parody. Leave a comment or let us know over at our Facebook page or on Twitter!
Well, we are not doing a show so you might as well get a concert. So here is a full Smiths concert for you! Happy Valentine’s Day! Head over to our Facebook page to send a Morrissey Valentine to someone you love or loathe!
While we still try to sort out how we are going to do a Valentine’s Day show this year, we have a special item on sale in our online store for all of you fans of Morrissey and The Smiths.
There is even an organic ladies t-shirt free of harsh chemical bleaches or dyes – because we know you have sensitive skin. Order yours now in our online store. Because nothing says “Valentine’s Day” like The Smiths!
We would like to thank all of the folks who came out and made our Holiday Spectacular such a hit this year! We’ve been doing this for six years and it still doesn’t get old. We raised a lot of money for charity, drank a lot of booze, and had quite a few laughs…here is a little portion of what you missed if you weren’t there…
Just in time for that last minute holiday shopping, our holiday CD – The Premature Immaculation – One Hot Second Live for the Holidays – is now available for download! Be warned, it does contain language not suitable for children – unless you swear a lot around children, in which case, our music won’t be much of a change.
We will also be selling actual CD copies (like the one you see above) at our Holiday Spectacular for $5 each! Yes, five friggin’ dollars! After that, you will need to contact us about ordering a physical copy. If you want to get a CD at the show, please leave a comment here or on our Facebook page so we have an idea of how many to bring.
Well, we held our Holiday CD giveaway and only one person got a correct answer! The two people on that list we have not interacted with are Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Nathan Fillion (but who knows, someday maybe…) It seems that almost everyone thought we had not interacted with Sir Ian McKellan. Well, during a recent Twitter Q&A (Hashtag #AskGandalf). We had a question answered by Gandalf himself!
Do you REALLY pay attention to our social media exploits? We get the feeling that most of our followers are pretty lazy. While we keep in regular contact with our fans, there are times when we interact with some ‘big names’. So, if you can correctly identify one of the people in the list below who WE HAVE NOT interacted with, you will be entered into a drawing for a free copy of our upcoming LIVE HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR CD. Oh yes, there is a CD coming. Remember, you have to identify one person who HAS NOT interacted with us on social media. Interactions include retweeting our tweets…
And no this isn’t a trick question. There is at least one person in that list we haven’t interacted with. To be eligible for the giveaway, you must be following us on Facebook and Twitter if you aren’t already.
You have until Monday, December 10th to enter. At that point, we will give the answers – and then anyone who got a correct answer will be notified of the next step in the giveaway!
This clip of some slightly inebriated improvisation from last year’s holiday show was oddly prescient (for those of you who don’t know what that means, look it up!) as we were able to find a Pearl Jam holiday tune for this year’s show.
This video gives you a bit of a glimpse into our rehearsal and song writing process. Drink a bunch of beers, start playing a song, lyrics start coming out…there, the mystery is shattered.
