GFY Go Fuck Yourself / Blog

The holidaze are over...You can come out now

Has it been that long since I've had nothing better to do than write a blog entry? Well the CD is done just not duplicated. We were very happy with how it turned out and would like to give a big Go Fuck Yourself shout out to Steven at Digital Warehaus for putting up with us and being an all around great engineer and suggestion maker. We look forward to working with him in the future. And speaking of the future..... There will be changes in 2014. I"m not going to let the cat outta the bag here but let me just say that if you've never heard a marimba being pumped through 100 watt Marshall then you're in for a real treat. We're writing new material, some of it will be ready for the show on the 9th of Jan so don't miss out on being the first to hear something that you've never heard before and may never hear again. As you know we love choosing our cover songs carefully so be on the lookout for some cool and unexpected new ones. Even I can't believe it. It wasn't hard learning the 1812 Overture but finding working cannons was a bitch. I hope you all got what you deserved for your Cashmas holiday and we look forward to keeping you entertained in 2014. And on a non sarcastic note. For all of you who have come to see us, have invited us to play shows with you. Who do whatever you can to support local music you have our heartfelt thanks. Keep up the good work and we'll hold up our end too. Thanks for everything. We love you but Go Fuck Yourselves... CNJ@GFY

Just an update

Hey everyone, We're almost done with our studio project. Just doing some final things and then we'll master it and get some copies made and start passing them out. We didn't plan on selling these as we wanted to just use these as our calling card and get some of our songs out there. We have a show scheduled for late in October but in the meantime we're already working on new stuff so we'll probably be getting back out there in December. We'd like to say thanks for all the bands who we've been lucky enough to play with and to any and everybody who have come to see us and continue to support the local music scene here in Houston. Whether it's 5 people or 50 or 500 hundred that turn out we always appreciate it. See you soon and keep those cards and letters coming. CNJ@GFY

For those who read our updates...

We had a great weekend at Digital Warehaus recording some songs. Rough mixes sound good and we'll do final mixes next month. In the meantime we're going to hunker down and start working on some new stuff that's been bubbling around our heads and finish the mersh stuff. A continued thanks to all those who support local music. See you at the shows. GFY

What's next?

First of all a huge thanks to The White Swan and Sift Through The Ashes for having us play. Destroy The Living and What's To Become, top notch bands so go see them whenever you get a chance. We're going into the studio in a couple weeks to start working on our CD. So nice well produced music and T shirts and all that stuff will be forthcoming. I'd just like to say that over the last two years we've met some great bands and fine musicians. It's always an honor to share a stage with you all. Thanks to everyone who come out and stays until the last note is played. Our scene is whatever we all make it. Keep supporting us and we'll keep rockin you. Cheers..... GFY

Things that be goin on....

Hi everyone, We're playing this Saturday in Austin with The Bloody Von Erichs at the Infest for The Rot Rally Rock N' Wrestling. Come one out if you can and see all the craziness. Don't forget The Doom In June show at The White Swan in Houston on June 21st. Tickets only 5 bucks.... After that we're going into Digital Warehaus Studio to record finally. Hope to have the music out by the end of August. We'll still be on the lookout for a show here and there so if you need someone to help fill up a lineup hit us up. Life shrt...Rok Hrd!

Last night....

Hey everyone.... Thanks for coming out and supporting some local music. There were lots of great shows to choose from so we appriciate everyone who came to Dan E's to see us. We'll get vids and pics up later today. A special GFY thanks to Jodi for being our camera op girl last night.

NEW RECORDINGS

Yea we know it took a long time. These are 4 track recordings from our crappy practice space so don't expect no Hi Fi shit here....Pretty much what we sound like live anyways just not as loud. Enjoy...See you soon...

There's always something going on.

We've been neglecting our Reverb Nation page for some time now. But we're trying to stay on top of it more now. New pics are up and there will be some new music up next week. The last few months have been spent playing some shows and meeting other great bands and working on recordings. I'm crazy about 4 track again after spending years working on Pro Tools. It's great to go back to a simple approach but that meant working out some issues with our sub par recording space and learning what works and what doesn't. I've played in bands for so long now that I don't remember a time when I saw a band playing and didn't realize how much time and effort goes into it. If you don't know from your own experience the answer is a whole hell of a lot, even if you only do it because you love to do it and you're way past the whole I'm gonna be a rock star when I grow up fantasy. So if you happen to stroll by our page or any other bands page, have a listen and enjoy the music and if you like it try and make it out to a show. Support your local music scene.
