happy new year!
Ought-seven has been an interesting year but let’s get the 08′ party started, yes?
the 12 days of xmas aint over yet though: there was one more present under the tree from our friends at the mighty oregonian. Thanks Santa! we got mentioned in one of pampelmoose’s year recaps and Lisa Wood‘s KEXP blog. I also made a list, which Peter and Benjy contributed to, over at the Portland Mercury.
and if that weren’t all merry enough….we made a cute and scary song called Christmas Infomercial. you can hear it over at KUFO’s Viva La Podcast on part 2 of the 12/16/07 show. the song is kind of silly. you’ve been warned!
ah Eugene. we love you.
two ghosts / three parties:
whew. dave said it best: “that was a blast“. thank you for the party, nemo! we should put out records more often… it was three parties in three weekends with cupcakes, mannaquins, miss murgatroid(!), and—most importantly—peeps kind enough to check our music. THANK YOU.
benjy at nemo
miss murgatroid, aka alicia j rose, joined us at the nemo party and squeezed some extra life into ‘with the village bells’ and ‘damned’.
the peeps at doug fir were dancing, drinking, and cupcake eating. the smiles on our faces havn’t faded.
music millennium + my cooking = yes.
so ‘two ghosts’ is out and about. portlanders can check it at indie retailers. here’s some recent press reaction:
“you guys are better then greenday!”:
it’s official. according to several 6th graders we are better then green day.
for the kids it was the end of the year party—tropical style. beach balls flying everywhere. competetive gatoraide drinking. pizza. dancing. and a pair of large blow-up toys—one a whiplash inducing bungee obstacle—the other a velcro wall.
we have some amazing new band pics thanks to our talented pal Alicia J Rose. check some of em’ here. alicia doubles as miss murgatroid who lays down some serious accordion squeeze in one of the trax on two ghosts. check this recent spread on her in pure music. the girl has got some serious game!
and also in the talented friends department: bridgetown breaks showed us some love. thanks, PJ! bridgetown breaks: a good purchase. I can’t recommend a good breaks record enough for any and all party occasions….
along with being an excellent hand model, jeff saltzman is a great mastering engineer. there’s more on that and the recording of two ghosts in the recording diary.
thanks for your time(!)
