REALLY OLD NEWS!MEMBERS!PHOTOS!HISTORY & FAQ! News as of 7.19.00Had an acoustic show. We sucked, only half the band showed up on time due to our time slot change. Thanks Less Than Jake, glad to see your not rock stars. The show was fun anyway, most of the people that were there were lame, the bands were lame, but i had a good time when we played. I don't really like Less Than Jake anymore, I haven't since we played with them last year and they were the biggest dickheads ever. The only band I would want to see was cooter, but I missed there set. Anyway, we have some shows coming up. Check out the shows page for that. -Dan

News as of 5.22.00Well everyone, CANCER SUCKS 3 was amazing! Over $3,000 was raised and tons of food was donated! Thanks to everyone that came and thanks to everyone that donated exra money. I had such a good time at this show. We rocked hard at that show, infact, a little to hard....
Some of you may of seen me gimping around the show after we played. Or walking with a chair, or hopping. Well, reason being is I fractured my foot on stage. Here is the story. We were playing are usual sloppy as hell set, and the crowd was awesome! Singing along, getting really into it, going crazy. Well, he haven't practiced in over a year, so we didn't do any of our complex songs, so we fucked around the whole time. Well, when it came time for our set to end, the crowd was chanting "ONE MORE! ONE MORE!" and we had run ofout songs that were short(we didn't want to go over) and we ran out of songs that we liked to play (expect for Samuri Warrior Ninjas, I don't know why we dind't do that). So, i left it up to the fans to decide what we play. We heard a lot of cires of song names, but Skabba Fette was being yelled the loudest and hardest by some guys that deserived a request. They had been singing along the whole time and stuff, so, even though we hate that song, and its bad, we played it. Here is where it gets bad. While Jumping up and down like a moron barefoot, I jumped up, and landed on my left foot, sideways. Now, that is not supposed to happen, so when it dose, it hurts and breaks stuff that you need.
I got it x-rayed abd it looks I need a cast and it fractured. WE WILL STILL DO SHOWS! I will go just as crazy, but, with more control and with a cast, it will be fun. i thought I would share that story of my pain.
we have a few shows lined up with rated r an mandolin controvers. They are gonna rock! I'll post the info as I get it! See you soon! Your Pal, Dan

News as of 4.26.00Hey everybody! Thanks to everyone that went to the shows this weekend! They both rocked, and if you missed the shows, you missed two of the most fun shows i think we've played in a long time. Below is a recap of those nights.
Thursday we play the Long Island Zoo with Fiberglass, ASOB, Sprout and a lot of others. Well, the show much larger than I thought it would be and the crowd was amazing! We played some news ones including 'All Night Party' and a cover of 'The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You.' Special thanks to Chris Dutcher and Joey of Fiberglass for playing guitar with us. Also, thanks to Dave and Jeff of ASOB for playing horns!
Well, the next night we play the Knitting Factory for the second time with the Scofflaws. The Stubborn All Stars also played and Primitive Reason opened up. They were amazing! Check them out. AJ and Matt came back special for this show. they rode over 7 hours on a bus just to play this show, and Matt forgot his sax, so he sang with me. Anyway, the show ruled, we were really sloppy, but once again we had a great crowd that seemed really into us and we just rocked as hard as we could. Pictures from that will be up really soon.
Well, CANCER SUCKS 3 is coming up soon. Check out www.cancersucks.net for more info. Bye.
News as of 4.18.00
Hey. Well, I hope everyone is coming to the two shows this weekend. Unfortunatly, AJ, our beloved guitar player ex-star-de-nair, will not be with us. He goes to school real far upstate at RIT. So, to fill this vast viod JOey, from Finerglass will be filling in. Joey will most likely fuck up since he never
played with us before, but we have practice tomorrow to work out the songs. But if we suck, blame Fiberglass for having such a bad guitar player.
Also, we will be selling some more copies of the RAW AT THE VANDERBUILT CD. We sold out last time we sold these, so make sure to get your copy at the shows. I mean, if you don't you might never get one of the most obsanity filled CDR cheapo CDs ever.
My side band, the Majorcans is going a benifit run for a local Hospice group in the near by SUNY Purchase\White Plains area. More info on that soon. I might do one on LI as well for a CANCER SUCKS fundrasier. But not until after CS3. See you at the shows this weekend! It will be joyus! Your Pal Dan!
