THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE

Even as we speak hordes of Sea Cow elves are busily printing and packaging dozens--DOZENS!!!--of copies of our first CD, the much anticipated, hotly debated, often replicated but never duplicated, rockalicious organism we like to call "The Vast Uncharted." It is 8 songs, seven of them Sea Cow originals, clocking in at a tidy 31 minutes. So, you know, would you rather spend that half hour watching CNN or getting your groove on with us? Exactly.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion as well as the miraculous recovery of our one-armed bass player, we are having a CD Release/Faith Healing Party on Saturday October 13 at the beautiful Broad Street Cafe in Durham, NC, that toddling town. Come one, come all and bring $5 plus some drinking money so that you can lubricate your neurons and hear Stratocruiser rock your world at 9PM and us around 10PM. You won't be sorry. There will be t shirts, balloons, dancing pigs, piggy dancers, toxic paintball, dwarf-only karaoke, facepainting, asspainting, live taxidermy and hot nuns and fetching rabbis speaking in tongues. See you there, reverb nation!!!

One-Armed and Dangerous

DJ, our enigmatic but lovable bass player, broke his wrist skateboarding with his son. Bummer, dude. We expect he'll be up and about in time for our CD release party on October 13 at the Broad Street Cafe. Lookit, if Def Leppard guy can play drums with one arm, right?

Speaking of the CD, you can dig three of the new songs right here!

We'll keep you posted on the orthopedic health of the band and some other stuff we have afoot. Rock on, bruvuhs and sistas...

Where have All the Good Times Gone?

To the Broad Street Cafe, baby! Hope to see you there on Friday Aug 17 for a full night of festivities. Starting at 6:30PM, Club Blvd kids, parents and teachers can congregate. At 8PM we'll hit the stage with plenty of pent-up rock itching to get out. After us stick around for two--count em, TWO--more bands, the incomparable Veronique Diabolique and the mind- and soul-bending Polynya. Come on out...xoxoxox

Que pasa, Reverb Nation?

Not long ago a club owner we know and love described the Sea Cow web presence as "kind of lame." When you only update your blog every 3 months it's hard to dispute that contention. So, touche...we vow to do better, Reverb Nationals, because You Deserve It! Both of you! Did anyone read the piece in the NYT Magazine last Sunday (5/13/07) about Jonathan Coulton, a singer-songwriter who makes his living mostly by selling his music online and cultivating and engaging his cultish fan base? Us neither...Seriously, it's worth your time, especially if you're an old fart like us and want to understand what The Kids Are Up To These Days. We're afraid the Sea Cow lifestyle precludes that sort of slavish devotion to online activities, unless they involve Gawker or The Onion. In other words, transcending lameness may be asking a lot of us. Having said that, please come see us and Saunter on Friday night May 18 at the Broad Street Cafe in Durham and please bring your big-spending, hard wine- and beer-drinking friends. We are in peak form, coiled and ready to unleash 85 minutes of heartbreaking and face-melting rock coupled with the occasional ballad, drunken waltz, space-age polymer jam and funk extravaganza. 9PM sharp, brothers and sisters.

Onward and Upward

Had a ball at 305 South last weekend (thanks James!). Looking forward to The Cave on April 6. In between carpools and dayjobs we're recording some songs in a real studio--stay tuned...

NEW SONGS!!

At long last we've added three new songs to our reverbnation rotation. Let us tell you about them: Missing in Action. Co-written by Misha and his friend Pam Richardson many years ago when they both were younger, she was poorer and he had more hair. Misha still has a cassette of Pam's original four-track reel-to-reel demo and has always loved playing the song...even without the guitar solos. Pam remains a friend, bon vivant and all-around classy dame, as well as a gifted writer, songwriter and musician. She plays in and around Chicago with The Pralines (http://www.thepralines.com/). Window of Opportunity. File this under "Songs We Wish We'd Written." Penned by Misha's pals Craig Lapine and Nicole Chaison, you won't find a happier song about suicide. Craig is an amazing songwriter who currently plays with Portland, Maine's old-timey rave-ups from hell, Poor Valley Salvation Society (http://www.myspace.com/poorvalleysalvationsociety). Nicole is the editrix and spiritual force behind the Mother of all Muthah Zines, Hausfrau (http://www.thehausfrau.com/). It is a must-read for Sea Cow and our fans. Fade to Jade. Another DJ James classic--four chords and seven minutes of brooding pleasure. Misha gets to make weird noises in the middle and have a big plank spank at the end. Woo-hoo!
