August 2016

The first vinyl issue of our 1997 debut record PLAYS ONE SOUND AND OTHERS is slated for a November release on Sonic Surgery Records. We'll have pre-order info in about a month or so, watch this space.

We've titled our new LP REPRODUCTION, and it's coming out on vinyl on the label Keeled Scales. It's our first record in 13 years and we can't wait to share it with you. It's at the pressing plant going through the necessary stages for a February 2017 release. There will be a few surprises between now and then, so stay with us and keep in touch.

Last week we played our first show in over a year for the quarterly Austin Jukebox event at Beerland. The same night, our friends Cherubs made a secret appearance for the first time in 22 years (!!) so it's reassuring to know that the time machine is fully operational.
