Muckie Mittens - Vision

More and more ND/SBP90s alums are out there still making great, original music today. Case in point: Bob Hoffman, former drummer of Pinch Point and Tweak, has joined up with Newburyport, Massachusetts' Muckie Mittens to play on their latest EP, Vision. Sit back, crack a beer, and let these smooth indie jams soundtrack your lazy summer days...

The Philosophy of Evil Seagull is the amazing debut EP from Anne Healey's new musical project, Evil Seagull. Described as "angular, melodic indie-rock with a sharp, poetic lyrical style," these four tracks do not disappoint. Check it out!

WORK - "Emolument Monument"

This is a kickass track by WORK, featuring Joe Cannon. It's on the UNPRESIDENTED: DIY vs. Donald Trump benefit comp of Milwaukee bands, so check it and support if you can!

Ely Parker and the CIAs

(right dudes, wrong band)
In the Year of Our Lord Nineteen Hundred Ninety-Three, Ely Parker and the CIAs practiced thrice and played out once. Chris Concannon on bass guitar, Ted Leo on guitar and vocals, Chris Norborg on drums. Two or three originals, otherwise pretty much straight up Medway Scene and its cousins and forbears.

--Chris Norborg

Below we have the live recording from the one-and-only show. And just for grins, we've got demos from one of the practice sessions as well. Enjoy!

Regular Sized Monsters

Regular Sized Monsters was Chris Concannon (guitar + vocals), Faye (bass), and Bear (drums). A very short-lived band, they played exactly one show, opening for Hace Frio and, yeah... Chisel. Cuz that's how we rolled in the Bend.

I wish there was a recording of that show, if only to hear the cover of the Stevie Wonder classic "Uptight (Everything's Alright)" that Regular Sized Monsters played. But instead, the only existing audio I'm aware of for this band is from a taped practice session, recorded in the basement of the Green House. There are three songs here, the first being a nice cover of Wire's "Reuters," followed by two instrumental numbers.
