This wake I myself have Steve'd

yo so most of us went to go see steve as he came to town with shai hulud the other day. he seems like he is really having a ballroom blast touring with those guys! matt fox even let him sing three songs! he did a really good job and i could tell he was enjoying himself. later he told us that it had been the best night of their tour so far. coincidentally, it was the best time i have had seeing shai hulud so far, and i think most people who were there would agree with me. it was awesome and we miss having that guy around, hopefully he even misses us sometimes! steve if you are reading this remember not to forget about us little people.

there is another thing i want to talk about for a minute now. james (jimmy) lawson. some of you might remember jimmy from such area bands as deathskin razors, all hype, and the kenny band. jimmy has been playing with us as a replacement for steve, and even though nobody could really replace steve in the delicate equation that is great reversals, jimmy has def made up for it by adding his own unique input into what we are doing. and as we are trying to write some new songs right now, i feel like his mark on us will be long lasting and delicious like stride gum. so far i have learned that jimmy is mostly diurnal, is approx five feet, ten inches in length (give or take a few) is jolly, is a mammal, likes to wear long sleeve shirts with a plaid pattern, and enjoys the hit television show lost. i suspect there are many more things to learn about jimmy and hopefully i will continue to study him in close detail. here is a file photo of jimmy:

we already played a show with jimmy but i am pretty obsessed with this guy so i wanted to write him a proper introduction. WELCOME JIMMY.

A Couple of Blurbs

So Grand Rapids the other night was good. The people there were overwhelmingly gracious and kind as usual. Below are some photos below taken by my old friend Jeremy Rush. (thanks man!) All the bands were great, especially Former Thieves in my opinion. They are something special. Our next jam is up in Mt. Pleasant at Justice Records (see flyer also below). I speak for us all when I say that we are incredibly excited to see Rorik's shop and continue to be impressed with him as a human being. Also, Steve will be in town with Shai Hulud this Friday in Lansing, and quite possibly at another location which shall remain nameless. At any rate, we are excited to see him rock with the worm, come see him and say hi to the rest of us while we mosh.

Grand Rapids Here We Come (Again)

Big hugs to Britty and the boys in Damages for letting us hop on the show in G.R. at The Cage on Monday, Feb. 15th. Also contributing to hearing loss that evening will be Ends, Damages, Dire Wolf, and Former Thieves from Iowa who will be in the middle of what looks like a pretty epic three month tour. Those guys bring the jams to boot so you will not want to miss them. Last month when we played The Cage it was so fun....good vibes, lots of friends (old and new), and an awesome venue, so needless to say we're pretty pumped to get back there. This will be our first show with Jimmy filling in on guitar, so come show him some love! Also, you should definitely bring us some leftover Valentine's Day candy. I kinda have a thing for chocolate.

Hearts. Scobie
