Animal Law on Saturday

I know what you are thinking. You just came to see us last Thursday, at Cobra Lounge. And honestly, we really are not one of those bands that is looking to overload you with shows. But this came up, sort of last-minute, and it is more of a party with bands playing. At least that is what they told me. And it is actually happening at our rehearsal space, so we should all be in really good moods since we do not have to lug our gear down three flights of stairs before the show. Please dress lightly, as it is supposed to hit 98-degrees on Saturday. This is a BYOB thing, so bring ice-cold beer, or something. And, on top of everything else, we have a special guest sitting in with us on what should be an absolutely epic version of "Above Heaven." It is a secret, but if you are really curious, I might tell you who it is, if you send me a nice e-mail. And for god's sake, if you have not already become our friend on MySpace, please do so, okay?

B.'s Going-Away Party


Animal Law (with surprise guest!)

The Menthols


Sexual Freedom


(Who is B.? B. is in Sseepage and he previously played in Jud Jud, End of the Century Party, and Scholastic Deth. Also, since B. is leaving to continue his dissertation work abroad, this will be the only Sseepage show this year.)


Animal Law is what happens when five guys who primarily operate within the experimental, noise, and avant-garde rock scenes (Blake Edwards of Vertonen, ssseepage, Burrow, Series Founders, Crippled Insectual; Geoff Guy of Sexual Freedom, Gary Glitter Hard Drive, ex-Gays in the Military; Dylan Posa of Three Cheers For One Dead Man, ex-Cheer Accident, ex-The Flying Luttenbachers, ex-Bobby Conn; Jason Soliday of I Love Presets, Coeurl, Gunshop, Mora, Behold! The Living Corpse; and Mark Solotroff of BLOODYMINDED, The Fortieth Day, Super Eight Loop, A Vague Disquiet, ex-Intrinsic Action), combine forces to play some form of laboriously slow, heavy metal dirge. While the band may cringe at the use of comparisons, references have already been made to (early) Swans, Khanate, Bauhaus, Harvey Milk, Joy Division, The Goslings, My Bloody Valentine, Flipper, Saccharine Trust, Einsturzende Neubauten, etc. On top of that, most of their compositions are purportedly love songs.
