Yeah, still in music grad school at UNT.

Brutal Juice apparently has or is coming out with a new record, I see Craig the lead singer every once in a while.

Because of school I don't go out as much as I used to so it's hard for me to keep track of what people are doing. There seems to be a large noise band uprising going on from what I hear.

Cheers, Dos Equis and chips & salsa all the way some day!

Opened for them once somewhere in Deep Ellum, Curtain Club maybe…? Yeah they were good. Made absolutely no sense on a bill with us, but we rarely made sense playing with anyone. :lol:

I havent Lived in Denton in years.
I played in Thorazine Dreams, then did a DUB outfit called "Kief on Texas Toast" back when they did Big Arse Beer nights at Rubber Gloves.
I grew up in Ft Worth and moved to Denton for the music, then got strung out and was notoriously banned form everywhere.
Made my way to Abilene, then back to Dallas, now in Shreveport LA doing computer animation and looking for people to rock with.
Most people I know from Denton moved on.
A friend of mine is doing NiteRisk there.
Before dubstep got out of hand, there was this cat going by Dragonman, dude was DOPE!
I won a Laptop Death match right after moving back to Dallas

Still talk to the Sixteen Deluxe camp every now and then. Some one from Austin should definitely chime in.

Lars moved back to lil D doing the LZX industries thing, hopefully about to do some Phantasties shows!

I was doing some music with George Quartz prior to Shreveport. "Personal Victories with George Quarts" drummer from "Darktown Strutters," 2 guys from Misson Giant and one of those played in the DOOMS UK.

Denton is so incestuous.

One of the craziest things that happened was when Craig from Brutal Juice collected road kill and hung a trash bag full of it over the audience.
They shredded it with regret of course.
