SOX IN '04 . BOSTON, MASS OCT 18 2003 As all you Red Sox fans know, the Sox lost to the New York Yankees in the 7th game of the ALCS Thursday night. But there is hope. Few people know, but while the Sox still held a 4-0 lead against NY, Mike's roommate opened up a bottle of Nantucket Nectars and the bottle cap message was as follows: "The Red Sox will win the World Series next year." Not a huge deal until you consider the context; Mike and his roommate were confindently witnessing Boston pummel the Yanks as a Juice Guy told them not this year. Not this year, but next year. So cowboy up for 2004. It will be the year.

NEW WEBSITE. BOSTON, MASS OCT 7 2003 Sausalito has launched this new website to coincide with the arrival of their new name (see News Brief No.1). The site should be more professional and easier to use than their previous one. However, it is still being used on a trial basis and is therefore still under construction. Please pardon our mess as we work to sort the site out and get it up and fully running. In the meantime, feel free to check out the other pages, especially the Audio page. Also, don't forget to sign up for the Mailing List and please send us your feedback.

NAME CHANGE. BOSTON, MASS SEPT 24 2003 The Future Husbands, down to Neal, Mike and Eric have, after an exhaustive few months of casual brainstorming, decided upon a new name for their band. Sausalito, a cookie, was chosen by the band because they feel it best represents the band's unusual musical style while avoiding sounding to serious or inaccessible. From this day forth, the band formerly known as the Future Husbands shall be called Sausalito.

URBAN ROCK MOSAIC 7m19s Debuted in May 2003, Urban Rock Mosaic is Sausalito's most artistic rock n' roll song to date. Influenced primarily by the Velvet Underground and by the protest music of the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and others, the song is based on the bass lines written by Jay Trayne and two poems written by Mike Bellefeuille. Beware the wah pedal. Not a bad take, but certainly not the best.
GREEN MEADOW WOMAN 7m19s Although the recording quality is less than ideal on this track, the true quality of the song is evident. The guitar, bass and vocal parts are all excellently performed in this May recording done the same day the song was written. Unfortunately, drummer Eric Carvill is not present on the track. A great new folk tune.
STONE FACE EULOGY 8m08s On the morning of May 3, 2003, the state of New Hampshire awoke to news that its beloved and revered icon, the symbol that embodied its rugged independence and Yankee spirit, the Old Man of the Mountain, had fallen. The millenia-old natural rock formation, also known as the Great Stone Face, is memorialized in the band's first blues song. This is the first take and uses an out-of-key harmonica.

FLOATING FREE 1m17s Recorded by Neal Munn on electric guitar in 2002, this version is a short interlude version and is not the final take of the song. In the final version, which has yet to be recorded, additional instrumentation, and more lyrics are available. Still, this is a great listen; a totally chilled-out mellow song. Don't be fooled by the electric guitar.
