Hey bumbaclots –
I haven’t updated this in a while, but we’ve been hard at it. LP3 is coming along gangbusters. It sounds like a fistful of dollars. It will be ready for yas this summer, MAYBE FALL depending upon some recording anarchy. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
Until then though, we got some kickass Colorado shows, a west coast tour in April (Nevada, California, MEXICO, Western Slope, and some more), PLUS a couple festival dates. I’ll get you the times/locales pronto, so hang tight mon(s).
Also, we are playing tomorrow. YES TOMORROW (valentine’s day) at the Hi-Dive with our buds in Somerset Catalog. Its their EP release, so come on down and join the vybz kartel.
One other local show that you need to be at is our Snappy Little Number showcase March 7th at the Sidewinder in Globeville, Denver. What you need to know is right here.

YO BROZ! Our Daytrotter session is up. CHECK IT OUT HERE. You will find an old song (“Awesome”), and new take on an old one (“Neckbreaker”), a Cock Sparrer Cover (“We’re Coming Back”) and a new guy (“Rally and Rumble”). We highly suggest you donating to this incredible outlet for new music. The people that run it are the salt of the land and are doing this for all the right reasons.
SWEET REVIEW of our latest 7″ from RAZORCAKE!!!! TIGHT! READ ON/RIGHT ON:
Old school powerpop that doesn’t stray too far from similar acts like The Steve Adamyk Band. Sometimes singles scratch an itch pretty well, and other times they just leave you wanting just a bit more. You know, just a smidge? I would have been happier with three songs, but hey, two good ones works well. Another, please! Grade: B+. –Bryan Static (Snappy Little Numbers, snappylittlenumbers.blogspot.com)
And yes, more songs are coming. LP3 is way way underway, guey.
I (Ty) wrote this a month ago after seeing the Replacements reunion show and I had no place to put it on the internet so my friends could see it. I put it on an old blog that I wrote about Denver public pools, but now I wanna show it to Jim Derogatis, because I think he might wanna read it, after I was able to get to his take on the reunion. Thus, I am putting it on the TK blog and am gonna send it over to him, hoping we can meet up and chat next week when we are in Chicago on tour. I don’t expect this to happen.
I wrote it pretty hastily, so if you don’t like it or think its poorly written I won’t be too concerned. Here it goes:
