This is a picture from a small article done for Alternative Press in 1997...I don't look very goth do I?
I am debating which of the two demos I have ready to go. This is a relatively MELLOW record. Not rocking very much at ALL here. Some of it is, still, mercifully, weird. Been waiting around for some music to get out and watch. Haven't seen a lot lately because I have been a combination of lazy and busy. This has kept me inside.
I think the answer to this is pretty simple. Once this CD is sorted out and pressed and a memory I think I may make the bulk of it available for download somewhere. Depending on when it is done and what my circumstances are I should do some live shows with the band--or some mutant form of the band.
Ideally I would play three or four dates and would LOVE to do some on the West Coast. Again, ideally, I would prefer to play on someone else's bill! When you put out records once a decade being the main act on a bill is a recipe for having 9 people show up. My dream set of shows would be to play somewhere in Northern California, Chicago, Florida and Mexico City. But I have odd dreams I guess.
I know I do not publicize this blog much but since people doooo come to the site. Let me know what you think. I was thinking a three piece version of the band like we had in the old days would be ideal. There is no reason to "rock" the new material. Oh! I would love to play in Toronto again too...
I mean I like some parts of it but really? I could be doing more constructive things. It isn't like I spend sooo much time doing it but I am so damned busy. I was thinking today, for instance, briefly, about playing live whenever I do get my new CD out. But then I thought? Why?
The last two times I played, once with a band and once solo, I would have rather been at home watching Star Trek reruns. I am sure the folks watching (or not watching) can tell. Not very professional I know. Then there is the time to get a band on the same page and really INTO what you are doing. It is just too much.
Recording is more feasible and probably more fun for me anyway.
I thought, way back when, that this was a nice thing. I am glad it is still up. It is a tribute, bio and photo gallery dedicated to Tucker. Have a look if you get the chance--it hasn't been updated in a few years and I may have to search out some new images to send over. Here is the website...
Sometime in the next day or so a link will go up on this site where you can pre-order the last Thanatos full length CD (as yet unreleased), The Exterminating Angel.
You pay $10 in advance and when I get 75 or so orders I will press the CD. Everyone who pre-orders will get a copy of the last CD from the band, Illegalteenagebikini's I Am Not Job. This includes shipping for both (Illegalteenagebikini discs may ship sans-jewel case though)
Sample tracks from The Exterminating Angel will be up here for your perusal--one or two of them anyway.
If I get too few orders, the CD will not come out and I will refund the cash. I figure I will be pessimistic and give it 6 months!
