It’s come to my attention today that there’s several people that still don’t know who is drumming in the band.  I’m not quite sure HOW that is possible, so I wanted to make one short post that should leave no doubt.

WhoCares Full Album! [ UPDATED ]

UPDATE: The album can be pre-ordered now, see links below.  Still no official cover art yet, though.

Birmingham O2 video

Short and sweet.  here’s some video from the gig yesterday.   I remember going to see concerts in the 80’s and getting bootleg video on VHS back then.  The stuff that is called “bootleg video” in 2012 makes bootleg video from back then look like something you’d pull out of your arse.   Some of […]
