Simone T B

People who have seen our past month of shows have been privileged to see Simone TB relieving Cold Hands Clarke on drums, who, for dramatically secret personal reasons, couldn't join us for the western leg. TB is in a bunch of rad bands including el V gore and one of my favorite acts, Tropics. All I'm saying is check our her jams because she's the best. They have a 7" coming out on We Are Busy Bodies and also an LP coming out not soon enough but you gotta wait.

Tuesday, November 15 at 8:30pm - November 16 at 12:00am

U.S.A. U.S.A.

Next week we'll be in the USA. Just two shows. No big deal. Just playing songs from our new record, and our old one, and the 4 we have yet to release. Tell your friends in Buffalo and tell your friends in New York. Here are "invites" - send them to your buddies. Use them while you can, because come November 5 there will be no more "invites."



Thank you.

Powdered Confessions

ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS - Powdered Confessions from Mitch Fillion ( on Vimeo.


On May 10, our friend and collaborator Brett Story will be screening a documentary about the petrochemical industry in Sarnia, and its effects on the health of residents there. A good doc about the sickening world.

The film is being shown as part of the Mayworks festival, and runs from 7-10 pm at The Toronto Free Gallery,1277 Bloor Street West. We wrote some music for the film. It's happening at the same time as the Soundscapes in-store, but big deal because you can just come to our show on May 13.
