March 22 2019: We’ve resurrected our newsletter, now christened “HABIT OF LETTERS”, and YES it was a weird day to realize email is still a great way of reaching out to people without all of the privacy and free speech deplatforming concerns now associated with social media and the ilk. I’ll defend the right of anybody to say things I don’t agree with, because I DON’T HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU. Anyway, the goal is to get away from all that stuff, but I need 50 people signed up to begin sending out HABIT OF LETTERS and not feel like I’m wasting my time so please sign up HERE or at the button above on the right

December 14 2018: When the band started we managed an email list called “TRANSMIT” and abandoned it in the early 2000s when social media was going to make things so much better. None of social media is better. At any rate Transmit is back. It’s the best way to know what we’re up to and you can also respond to us personally there as well. You can find the “Subscribe To Our Transmits” button at the top of this page to sign up — or you can also subscribe HERE
