3.20.01 = hi...long time no ska. the Cuffs have been on an unexpected 2 month hiatus, but we are getting through it and we had practice last Thursday at which we wrote a new song entitled, "Eve of Destruction" also, will be back in action on fuckin' Friday @ the Buek so be there! i'd like to take this time to say how much i love CFC...we've been through what seems like forever although it's only been 3 years. we've been on the brink of breaking up several times, we've seen hundreds of thousands of horn players come and go, we've won awards, we've gotten to play some awesome shows, and for awhile i honestly thought that this show on Friday would be our last...but it seems that the bond of CFC still stands. yeah...we're all in new bands, blah blah blah, but i'd give all of them up for CFC in a second. now that that's out of the way...i can tell you stuff that's going to be happening. this fridays show at the Buek will also include Skarmy of Darkness, the Danger Strangers, EBS, Social Control, and many many more. it starts at 6:00 and costs $5. we still have free recording time that will be used as soon as we write more songs. we'll probly plop them on with the old tracks, maybe some double old school tracks, live tracks, and more jive. i'll keep you posted on that monstrosity. also, we're on GarageBand.com, a really cool site where you listen to a bunch of little underground punk and ska bands and rate them...they have like a billboard-esque chart thing, we're like 500-something. our friends from the north, Dinkus 9 have been at number 3 for awhile which is cool. so yeah...go there and rate us, whether you think we suck or not...Anarchy 4 Anybody is up there along w/ Mitchell Goodard Strikes Back. recap: show this friday, CFC rulez, new record soon, garage bands, Encyclopedia Brittanica...up my ass. PEACE!
