 Spring blurred past us in a flurry of gigs, the long awaited release of ‘GET THE REVOLUTION OUT OF YOUR HEAD,’ tour planning, and finally: the TOUR.


With the help of our lovely webmistress, we’ve whipped up a special tour diary complete with all the mundane details and photos for your entertainment/boredom.   For those of you with less of an attention span, I’m just gonna cut to the chase and roll out a list of well deserved thanks instead of blathering on about our most recent exploits:

Thanks to The Cops and The Dirty Birds for kicking ass at our CD release party, and to the staff at the Sunset who were super cool/tolerant.

Thanks to all our new fans and friends on ‘My Space’.  You can check us out at: myspace.com/earaches

Thanks to Larry, The Valley, The Resistoleros, Hammerlock, and everyone else who helped us along the way on tour.  Steel Cage bands rule!   Thank you Pronto Café!

Thanks to Ray for not only having us play at his birthday party, but getting up and playing the entire set with us!   Also to thank from that night are Ape City R&B, HEAD, and the most badass new band in the jet city: FOUR EASY PIECES.

A huge thank you to all the following stations for airplay and continued support:

WMBR Cambridge, MA,  WFMU Hoboken, NJ,  WUSB  Stonybrook, NY, WPRB  Princeton , NJ,  KDHX   St. Louis, MO,  KDVS Davis, CA,  RRR.org.au  Brunswick, Australia, and finally KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle, WA where we hit #6 on the Northwest charts and have been getting a lot of airplay.  We’ve never been happier to be number 6 at anything in our lives.  These stations can all be heard online, and are all cool in their own way, so be sure to check ‘em out and tell ‘em the Earaches sent you while you’re at it.

Not least of all, thanks to you, humble reader.  Thanks for taking an interest, thanks for keeping rock and roll alive, thanks for living free, and thanks for reading this crock of shit.   There’s more to life than rock and roll, but not much.
