Welcome to our new informal /infrequent Single Series- Inspirations and Influences. Whenever we a have chance we will go record a new single in a place or with a person that has been of inspiration and influence on the band. The first is our forthcoming single Chaperone b/w Hold Tight. This single hits on both requirements. First we traveled to record on the lower east side of New York City, a city whose musical history and general environment is an inspiration and an influence on what we do. Secondly we worked with Ivan Julian of Richard Hell & The Voidoids, a band, who along with all the other musicians of the original NYC punk scene, have had an influence on what we do. We are excited to share these recordings with you.

“On Display” is the new record from TAFKAVince band, to be released in the summer of 2011. The band was feeling ready to get to work so in we went to producer Tony SanFilippo’s Oxide Lounge. A couple days laying basics for some songs that had been played live. Then a month for TAFKAVince to write the rest of the songs: and the band to work them up for session two. Another quick session and basics (and then some) done. Time to bring in the guests. First up a field trip to The Bunker in Brooklyn NY, to lay some guitar tracks with Aaron Lee Tasjan (Madison Square Gardeners, Enemies!, NY Dolls, Semi Precious Weapons). Back to IL to record Ed Anderson-guitar (Backyard Tire Fire) Vee Sonnets-keys & guitar (The Sonnets, The Maybenauts, The Hamburglars). Staying in the analog realm the record will be a record, a limited edition vinyl release (with download included). While the song writing is still rooted in glitter & guts with a sprinkling of power pop, this record has expanded the bands sonic pallet. A fine combination of their glam trash roots, and a little sparkle for the ears. The band will be playing shows around the mid-west and will do a short tour of the south and east coast in support of the release.
