I just added Change You to the audio section, so get yer lazy ass over there and download that. As far as shows go, I just got an email from the Vilefiends asking us to play on January 10th at Rush Henrietta High School. This isn't definite, but it's possible. We've got another show set up for January 19th with The Motives, Just Short Of Nothing, None of The Above, and Muffin Kitty. Not sure where at yet, but i'll let ya'll know soon. I'm sure a lot of you have seen the bitching and arguing thats been going on between our band and the other band called "the goonies" from Massachusets. My opinion is.. i have no opinion. Just be kind, dont go to there guestbook and sign it telling them how much they suck. Well, thats it, I'm out.
December 20, 2000

If you have any suggestions for the page email the band and tell us what you think. aite peace! Oh and were finishing up some brand spanking new songs for the next few shows so hope to see you there!
December 19, 2000
Hey, whats up. Last weekened we played at the Gates Presbyterian Church, which was great. We'd like to thank Just Short of Nothing for setting up that show. We'd also like to apologize to everyone at the church who put up with our blatant profanity. We really dont have many future show plans yet. So, thats it for now.
December 15, 2000
Last weekend kicked some major ass! Two great shows in a row. Thanks to Dan Whittemore for setting up an incredibly sucessful show. We'd also like to thank G Thomas for helping us out a lot at the Variety Show, which was much more fun than any of us expected. Next weekend we'll be playing out in Gates at the Gates Prebyterian Church. See the Shows page for more info. We'll also be selling cd's at the show for 5 bucks. Hope to see you guys there. LATER!
December 3, 2000
We won the Battle of the Bands last night at the webster rec center! Cool, huh? Well, we'd really like to thank all the people at the parks and rec and the music store for setting it all up. We'd also like to congradulate Marius for coming in a close second. Well, next weekend we've got two shows lined up. Friday is Dan Whittemore's "Rock for Food" Concert at Webster High School in the auditorium. Admission to the show is one non-perishable food item. All the proceeds are going to the webster food cupboard, so we best see you there. The other bands playing are Out Of Line, Muffin Kitty, One Track Mind, and Mercury 357. Saturday we'll be playing the Webster High School Variety Show... this isn't a real show, seeing as how we only get to play one song. Well, thats it for now.
November 6, 2000
Well, the show at Saint Martins was a great show with a huge turnout. Thanks a lot to everyone that came and went absolutely nuts. On an even cooler note, we got permanantly banned from playing at the church. This is due to me saying shit in one of our songs. Oh well.... Anyways, the waterstreet show on the 17th is looking like it's gonna get postponed a while, but there is a show in the works for November 18th. We wanna play with None of the Above and one other band, we're not sure who yet. I'll put more info up on that show as soon as I get it. Well, thats it for now.
October 16, 2000
HAHA! FINALLY i got some audio on the site. I uploaded "Not Allright Tonight" from our CD onto the audio page. the show at Waterstreet is gonna be on November 17th.. tickets will be $10. thats it for now. later
October 9, 2000
Well, lots of stuffs been going on. The FINAL DATE for the Fro Show II is gonna be October 21st.. sorry we've changed that soo much.. we've all got our heads up our asses big time. We've been writing new songs, which is always good.. right? And there the possibility of another show at the Waterstreet Music Hall (yay!), i'll write more about that as soon as I figure it out. oh yeah, i still cant figure out how to put the damn audio on the site, so if you want some of the songs, check napster.. i see em on there all the time. Well, thats all i gotta say about that.
September 14, 2000
Hey people! I'm really sorry about the song in the audio section. The people at crosswinds are a bunch of assclowns that wont let me put the mp3 there. I'll fix it as soon as I can find a better place to put em. The cd has been selling like mad. I walked into school on wensday with 20 copies, and they were all pretty much gone before first period... shuda brought more.. oh well, keep checking the audio section cuz that song will be up really soon. later!
September 11, 2000
The CD is finally done! coooool! well, the mp3 for "Not Allright Tonight" isn't working right now, if did for one night, then it stopped. I'll be fixing it REALLY soon, so keep trying. The cd costs 5 bucks. if you want a copy then email us, or stop one of us in the halls at school.
August 23, 2000
WORD! We just got back from out first day of recording at GFI. We're going back for mixing soon, but right now i've just got the rough mix CD and it sounds really great. As soon as the whole thing is done we'll be putting some songs on the page and we'll be selling the CD for $5. Sorry about the price, but it's really what we gotta charge without losing a shitload of money.
August 21, 2000
i just realied we haven't done jack shit with the site in the longest time. oh well, that just shows how hard we've been working on our music... right..... well anyways we're recording in like two days, which is extremely cool. Thom bought a new bass, it's an epiphone, and it's real nice. well.. um.. word.
August 6, 2000
Ok.. ok.. my bad. We're going to GFI on the 23rd of August. As far as new stuff goes, we've written like 3 new songs. Theres some talk about a show at Saint Martins church with Down Time, Marius, and Muffin Kitty right after school starts, i dont know if this is actually gonna happen though. We're also playing a graduation party for Chris Dibella on August 19th. K, cool... later.
July 31, 2000
Finally! We're going into GFI Studios on August 11th to record our demo. This means that it should be ready before school starts again. Cool. We dont have any shows scheduled, we'll post some dates when we do.
July 10, 2000
Sorry we've been so lazy around here, not a lot has been going on. We've been busy writing some new stuff and we've been playing some partys. As for future shows i've been hearing some rumors about a possible show with Marius at the Penny Arcade? Well, since i have absolutely no idea whats going on with that i can inform you no furthur.. but i'll give ya the details as soon as I get em.
July 1, 2000
Well, i just wanted to thank everyone that came to the show earlier tonight. Not a great turnout, but oh well. As for future shows, we have none lined up. We're pretty much just gonna live in Greg's basement for the next month writing new stuff, so expect a ton of new songs for our next show. We're looking into recording (seriously now!) and we should be doing that REALLY SOON. so.. uh.... yeah! seeya all later! -spaz out.
June 30, 2000
Well, tomorrow is our show at Tremors. Obviously now it's too late to buy tickets from us, but you can still buy tickets at the door.. they are $6. We'll be playing with Third Estate and the Vile Fiends. We've got one new song called So Long ready for this show. Sorry we dont have more, but we've been working really hard to write new stuff lately... so expect a bunch of new tunes for our next show after tremors. As far as recording goes.. we're looking at GFI studios and we wanna get in there pretty soon, but we're still setting things up. Thats it for now, seeya at the show!
June 13, 2000
Well, we just finished the show at Webster High School. We played pretty well, and about 120 people came out to see us, Marius, and The F Word. Thanks a lot to everyone who blew off review classes and homework to support us! Well, as far as recording goes, the ever so sexy Todd York has offered his services (and great equipment) to help us record. We'll most likely be doing it this weekend. If the quality of the recording with Todd is good, then we most likely won't go to a studio yet. Well, thats it for now, peace. -Spaz
June 5, 2000
Well with waterstreet behind us look for more great things
goonies were going back into the basement to write and pick up on some
that we had set aside till now, new songs, old jokes. Its safe to say
were getting sick of the same 8 or so songs that we play, as for new
looks like we might have at least 2 or 3 new songs ready by our tremors
on july 1st. Speaking of which were playing with this other band called
vilefiends. As for the page its self we put up some pics from

there. Some other bands playing will be Muffin Kitty and Marius. Tickets are $10, and you can get them from anyone of us or anyone from
the other bands. As far as recording goes, we'll almost definitely be recording in late June or early July. Well, thats it for now. peace.
May 9, 2000
Well, we'be been busy, not necesarily doing anything important, some
stuff, some stuff thats not so new, some stuff thats good, and some
just bad. We're most likely gonna push back the recording till late
early july account of the many many shows we have lined up. It looks to
kick ass summer for the goonies. Oh and most importantly every one give
warm grinding hug to new tenor sax player Craig (bein) Lutterbein
(spelling?). Every body say "hi craig" he'll most likely not be playing
first show with us till Watersteet June 2nd but its great to have him
of the band. plus he does alot more lackie work to the page than spaz
does. oh yeah, we just got pictures back from out very first show... so we'll be putting those up sometime soon.
