- "Picture a thirteen-year-old boy sitting in the living room of his family home while wearing his headphones or watching MTV. He enjoys the liberties hard won by the alliance of philosophic genius and political heroism, consecrated by the blood of martyrs; he is provided with comfort and leisure by the most productive economy ever known to mankind; science has penetrated the secrets of nature in order to provide him with the marvelous, lifelike electronic sound and image reproduction he is enjoying. And in what does progress culminate? A pubescent child whose body throbs with orgasmic rhythms; whose feelings are made articulate in hymns to the joys of onanism or the killing of parents; whose ambition is to win fame and wealth in imitating the drag-queen who makes the music. In short, life is made into a nonstop, commercially prepackaged masturbational fantasy. This description may seem exaggerated, but only because some would prefer to regard it as such." Allan Bloom, "The Closing of the American Mind" And we'll offer ourselves up as proof that you're not exaggerating. "The body sings while the mind is sleeping. But, the mind knows the body's revolting..." Holy Ghost Revival, "Girls Night Out."
- Me, Myself, and I
- In London, people love to dance to pre-recorded music, but seem to be vehemently opposed to any sort of physical movement while live music is preformed. London kids are cynical and unfeeling and no one wears their heart on their sleeves anymore.
We encourage the crowd to throw objects, hurtle verbal abuse, move their bodies, or leave, and usually the audience does neither of the above. They merely stand with mouths agape afraid to make any conclusions on hating or loving our music even after getting verbally or physically berated by the band.
We are here for the apocalypse, we are here for a movement, and we are here for the Order of the Left Hand.
Please throw stuff.

Tonight is our last show in the United Kingdom before we return to the United States of America. It has been our humble pleasure to serenade your countries, England, Wales, and Scotland over these last six months.
We'll be playing the Vauxhall Tavern in London tonight, so please come down early if you'd like to get in, it's expected to be rammed as fuck. It's right next to Vauxhall Tube station on Kennington Lane. That's SE11, and the Vauxhall tube stop on the Victoria line. Also right next to the Vauxhall bus station.
"English, Irish, Spanish, Gaul, drive like mad to dear Vauxhall."
We've just gotten back from being on the road with the View, our brothers from Dundee, Scotland. We didn't really know what to expect being on tour with them for 11 shows, it ended up a great experience for all of us. The View boys and their crew were lovely.. hospitable and welcoming to all of us.
One of the highlights on the View tour was playing the legendary Astoria, one of the last shows before it's torn down. The amazing Paul Murphy has posted some clips from that show, check it out if ye wish:
Next Time I'll Buy
Wolf King Of LA (plus a litle bit of Arrogant Army...)
Flowers of Evil (as sang by our tour manager Justin)
Hope to see you tonight! If not tonight, we'll be doing 2 shows (Seattle and Bainbridge Island) shortly after getting home.
Kisses and Happy Thanksgiving.
