 So thanks to all who came to last weeks show. Keep Calm and Fight On, my friends!

speaking of which, I have another friend whose also in some dire medical issues. Some of you may remember the green-haired Joie from Dead Blond Girlfriend from the Raven or the Sidewalk Cafe when Logs used to play in NYC.  Joie was recently diagnosed with dengenerative spine disease.  Once again, this is a person WITH insurance but is saddled with thousands of dollars in expenses.

If you can, please donate...http://www.gofundme.com/helpjoie

 

Thanks! ~MOLE

 So I have a solo gig on Sept. 7th, playing some old Logs tunes to help a friend recently diagnosed with cancer.  Yes, she has health insurance... but for those who've had to go through this experience, there's a thing called MOOP you have to deal with first. (for those of you not in the know, hint: it's not a handbag).

For details check out, http://schmancer.com/  And as always...

 It's hard to believe I wrote those words over a year ago now.  When I wrote them I thought most of the hard stuff in 2012 was over.  But there was a lot more in store for me personally. 

 
My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I spent most of the year focusing on getting through that.  In the process, I discovered I was a lot more private about personal matters than I ever thought I was.  Not too hard to figure out why I haven't been posting all that much.  Most non-family things in my life went on hold for a while.
 
I'm happy to report that at the end of the year she was offically in remission.  For those of you in the know and who provided or offered help, thank you.  Hopefully this week, I'll be able to post a little bit more about the Logs and where we are.
 
Here's to hoping 2013 is better!

Friends of the Logs --

Thank God that's over. The year 2011 was a rough one for those of us surfing/clogging/rolling with the mainstream. But as a result of such difficult antics, we have a new offering for the new year.
Every month for the next year, we're going to upload a new cover to the download page of this website. This month, we're starting off with a Frank Zappa cover of "Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance".  Will post some more details on the song on Facebook and Twitter and of course... here!
 
All the highest of thoughts,
MOLE

So we're coming out of the studio to bare the sunlight and play a few of the new tunes we've been working on.

Friday August 26th

Frankensound Studios: 832 Ridgewood Ave, North Burnswick

I hope to rotate some of the stuff on the downloads section and show some of the songs going to be in the setlist over the next few weeks.

In a few hours, we finally trek back into the studio to lay down a few new tracks.  Nothing like that fresh studio smell in the morning.  Wish us good fortune and the power of the muse.

Frank and I are playing on BlowUpRadio.com & ThePenguinRocks.com on 3rd Annual Banding Together Internet Benefit Concert For Spondylitis.   Our set is on Saturday October 16th at 12:50PM, but the broadcast goes all weekend Oct. 15th - 17th . There's a whole slew of really great local acts playing:

Mike Grau, Bobby Strange, the Crayons, Frank Bressi, The Crayons, Bastards of Melody, Scruff from The Tea & Whiskey...

It's a pretty big deal.  Check it out. 

Also Laz is doing a boxed set to celebrate 10 years of BlowupRadio.com -- and Logs are on it!   The full track listing for the box set is here: http://blowupradio.tripod.com/bur10cd.html

So it's been pointed out to us that the latest American Idol is perhaps borrowing ideas from the Logs. 

"Who knew The Beatles theme night would result in such a great night for almost all the Idol hopefuls? It goes to show that Lennon and McCartney's songwriting is so timeless and extraordinary, even a mediocrre batch of contestants could still come out shining. American Idol contestants "borrow" Logs unique instrumentation for Beatles week. Crystal used a didgeradoo for "Come Together" and Lee, Bagpipes on "Hey Jude".  Also, next week, we fully expect Michael Lynche to rock out on the glockenspiel and Aaron Kelly to jam with a theramin."

Beatles covers with digeridoo and bagpipes?  What the hell?  First Burger King takes back our drummer, and now American Idol steals our old sound!  If next week is acoustic death metal mixed with ragtime, we will know they are taking a few cues from us.

We're back!  Apologies for this blasted website being down for being out for so long. We transferred servers, had issues with Google blocking us, and had various web interface issues. But we're back.

The four of us just spent a night or two laying some tracks down for some newer songs.    Have I mentioned I love recording? There's a spark of excitement when you hear the potential in the foundations. And the unexpected realization that the mistake you just made could take the song in a really cool direction.  It's like touching forever, or the illusion of it anyway. 
 
More to come!
