FAQ & Update

Describe your band (in 5 words or less).  Flashbacks, Food, Film, Forestry, Echos. Describing one's band tends to be terribly frustrating, we've discovered. So we just quote things others have already written.
• If your music was a place, where would it be?  It would be on the set of Ivan's Childhood, in the birch tree house scene.
• One time I was on stage and... I didn't fuck up.
• What are the band members' full time jobs? We live off the legendary Burgundy fortune, and intend to soon start an upscale hippie commune / urban farm.
• What is the song-writing process like? A vat of lyrics slowly accrued over time is applied to a collection of music that has also slowly been fermenting in sherry casks.
• Where did the band name come from?  It's probably a pretty interesting story, but I don't know.
• Digital or Analog? Who cares.  Listen to Jean Michel Jarre's Oxygene or Giorgio Moroder's E=MC² & tell me it isn't a fantastic marriage. The lovely thing is that cheap technology - computers, software, et cetera - has made recording an album possible for the likes of us. We never could have pulled it off otherwise.
• How about past musical endeavours?  They're still out there, frozen in time on Friendster profiles, MichigIndie caches and Geocities pages.

We are presently recording songs and non-songs for a new collection.  Destination: Fall 2011. You can hear two of them in the music player. Proxima and Ivan, I Know.

These guys are drinking their brains!

Blowout 2011

Hamtramck Blowout 2011 is upon us. We've prepared a short video essay on what this yearly ritual means to us. Also, MetroTimes says this about us:

Midnight — Computer Perfection: Spare the hyperbole: Yes, there's airy pop perfection in Gene Corduroy's combo — songwriting and synthesizers are the skin and bones to which everything clings, and the band wouldn't likely deny an enduring appreciation for Kraftwerk and the Beatles.

Don't know what that means, but it sounds about right. But they forgot about hot dogs and finger banging:
