Ok folks, I’ve got some big news……are you sitting down? PYGMYLUSH AND DESARK ARE TOURING TOGETHER FOR FIVE WEEKS! Its going to be five weeks of old world beauty mixed with modern elegance, touring our foul and beautiful country starting sometime in early March. We are planning on sharing the same van for five weeks, which will start to get ripe probably around day six, which might sound unpleasant but trust me, it just makes you remember the trip for weeks after it’s over!! Imagine mike getting home and loading lumber in the back of the van “post-trip”. After warming it up for a few minutes some late february morning, gets in and takes a huge wiff……..”ahh, that tour was awesome..” he might think, as he puts it in reverse, prepping for the always serious early morning northern Virginian traffic. So see? If we wear deodorant mike might never experience the gift that keeps on giving. Any who, this tour… if the stars align properly… will coincide with the release of both bands new records….DesArk’s “don’t rock the boat, sink the fucker.” and PygmyLush’s “pals” both via Lovitt Records. Aimee helped generously on piano and vocals on our new record, and a few of us pygmys will be putting some instruments and back round vocals on her mellow songs, so it will be a collabrative trip….i cant tell you how stoked everyone is….. If you wanna help in any way, contact one of us (me or mike) via that contact page over there, and let us know what your thinking, shows, posters, places to eat, places to sleep, swim, camp, ghosts, ufos….etc.
Okay three a.m. here goes….PYGMY LUSH is working on our fourth record, (third full-length) titled for now “PALS”. We’ve been lurking around the Ashburn house for about two weeks, widdling away at it, and we’re done with about ten out of fourteen written songs, with numerous lesser played singer songwritten things me and johnny have. This may sound like bad news, but Mike Taylor has only written one of these songs, but as he insists “hey i am getting a kick out of playing almost nothing, just my single note stuff and droning is all i really want.” Eric Kane of strike anywhere fame is now with us on drums which works out perfectly cause we always seem to play better together when our drummer is someone we shared a lunch table with in high school. He really GETS how to be in pygmy lush, which is to say, he won’t put up with our shit, i.e. talking conceptually about a part until we all want to jump out a window/smoking an unfair amount of cigarettes in a small wood shed/getting giddy about a over sexed drum beat that has no business being in a pygmy lush song, etc. He has this way of telling us what is not good in such a matter of fact way that the premise becomes virtually undebatable. It prompted one pygmy to nickname him “THE TRUTH”. Also, in other member news, our old drummer Mike Widman has switched to bass, an instrument much more suited to his liking, as he was essentially a stop gap drummer for over two years!! With mount hope under your belt, i’d say you played admirably and even brilliantly at times, you took on a lot of pressure for the good of the team. Thanks Mike!
Well thats about it for now, we have a few shows in the works but nothing too far out is planned until the record comes out, and when that happens, shit is going to hit the fan my friends…shit will hit the fan….. i will shit on an electric fan.
this is going to be another place to find info on what we are up to, myspace has gotten out of hand with band ads, and self promoting networkers. i hope to figure the refined aspects of having a blog into this thing, pictures, videos, music, tour dates, records etc. welp, nice of you to stop by, see ya when i get my shit together.
