UPDATE 2005 [Jan. 23rd, 2005|05:52 pm]
Thunder Asunder

We survived into a new year. Looking back I'd have to say that evolving from Luke/Me/Ross playing just bass/guitar/drums (respectively) we have developed quite a bit. We used to sing songs about stalking (and how much we like it), and how I got a speeding ticket a few years back. It seems like only yesterday we were writing our first synth songs. Actually it feels like a hella long time ago, but it sounded good to say that. We actually haven't had practice in over a month, which for me and Ross is no big deal when we have to go a long time, because we'll never forget the songs. I don't know if it was mentioned recently but Ben Mettey is playing bass for us now, I don't know what kind of progress he's made in private but at the first practice I force-fed him 4 or 5 songs.


We were supposed to have a show for Dec, then Jan, and neither happened. We have a burning desire to play. Just look at these pics I have found floating around in outter spce:

(click the thumbnails for enlarged versions)

That is from a show we played in Fitchburg, prior to Ben, even prior to our last bassist.

That is a kid going nuts over "Dinosaur" which I think we have all agreed to not play any more based on the feeling that we all hate it now. With such big gaps between shows, who knows. Some of those kids loved that song to pieces though, since it was the only song they had heard by us, which suprised me that they had heard of us at all, since they were from NJ. They were a little suprised to hear we didn't always sound like that song...

This is also during Dinosaur I am guessing by the kids doing the chomping motions. Radio Active Salad Bar gets free promotion in that picture thanks to a very reflective sticker. That show was in North Brookfield I believe, also a Halloween show so that explains the sheriff badge I'm wearing.

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us Here you can see Jesse giving some sort of... demonic speech perhaps? Ross is peaking over his drums in the background.

So hopefully 2005 will allow us to achieve the following:
Ben will learn all the songs.
We will practice regularly.
We will play shows regularly.
We will record something finally. (It's actually planned!)
We may release something (gasp! 20 songs and no releases? are you mad!?)
Write some new songs as well.

Anybody interested in lyrics? I'm not saying I can provide them, just curious if anybody cares about that sort of thing. Any suggestions? What do you want to see from Thunder Asunder in 2005? Want to see us go back to being really offensive? Expand the artform? Get tighter (psh, is it possible? joke.) Play better shows? Let me know.

Thunder Asunder will be playing a show sometime in January, hopefully with our new bassist BEN METTEY.
I don't know who else is playing, nor what the actual date is, but it will be in FITCHBURG, MA at the American Legion (I guess that's tentative too?)

Tenative too, that sounds like some sort of clothing company.

So once Ben gets the rest of the songs down we're going to write some new stuff to play along with our current list of about 20 songs, which isn't nearly as big of an undertaking for the listener as it sounds, they are short songs. I guess I could get some recordings up sometime soon, check back for details.
We've been playing a lot of Sega Genesis lately so I wouldn't be suprised if Sonic the Hedgehod leaked a little influence into any new synthesizer parts, or if perhaps we could be heard playing tunes from RBI Baseball or Triple Play '96, that wouldn't suprise me.

Well the October 15th show in Lunenburg was a great time. We showed up on time, suprisingly, and got our stuff unloaded quickly as it was raining. The show had yet to start, and we were told it would be convenient if we could play first. That wasn't the impression we got beforehand, but we weren't too worried about it, but we realized this was Tim's last show with us and 3/4 of our friends weren't there yet, so we elected to play second as a compromise.

Thanks, by the way, to everyone from Rainsford for your help in setting up the show, getting us in and organized, enjoying us, and helping us with levels. It seemed as though a few people didn't enjoy our comical amounts of feedback, but of course our usual fans did. If I had to estimate, I would say 70% of the people there were either mildly or severely liking us, about 20% were very confused, and roughly 10% were annoyed. There was also a couple of the usual kids who take themselves too seriously who didn't like Ross' dances or our videogame MIDI files we played.

Thanks to Elyse Leblanc (woo woo!) for getting me in touch with Rainsford. Thank you to EVERYBODY who came. Thank you to the bands who played, I would say all of them were pretty decent, Rainsford was especially on point (and yes I'm biased). I guess one of the bands made fun of us, but that's okay because we did some really really awesome dances that accentuated their musical stylings.

A few "one-time" tricks we pulled out of our pockets:
Ross pulled a toy gun during the set.
Tim Glover played bass for us, for the first and last time.
My good friend Berbelang of the soon-to-be-influential band Cheeseberger made a song featuring the memoirs of Raleigh Theodore Sakers, brilliant and psychotic sci-fi writer, so naturally I played that song from my laptop using my amplifier.
