Here is a little fun show...on the left hiding behind THE LP OF OUR FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM is Nolen Stralhs. You may know of him from the vocal styling's of Double Dagger. He is also one half of POST TYPEOGRAPHY. A brilliant design duo here in Baltimore that has authored a textbook and helped out a bunch of there buddies look more credible than they actually are [us included(wait we are serious!)].


We would not have these stylie T-shirts (pictured right) nor the DELICIOUS album art if it was not for POST TYPEOGRAPHY and the heart of Nolen Strahls. We are very grateful for all the help!! Here's to the kings!!

We will be touring in support of our debut album, "Jazz Mind",  that our friends at Load Records and Upset the Rhythm were kind enough to release. 
Also this blog is new. We are to low tech to figure out a web-site so just think of this a s a place holder!
See you soon America,
