* "I'm in love," Gallo says. "I'm so proud when we're playing together. Not proud because I think we're better, but proud I was able to make myself open in this way."
"...Improvisation is not a good word for what were doing. Its more a gesture of composing and performing at the same time, always hoping to avoid musical cliché or jamming. Weve chosen not to go into a studio in a traditional way like other bands have done in the past: to make recordings, cut them up, dub on them, fine tune and mix them, and then release them as an album, then later, go on tour, pantomiming those recordings over and over each night as a form of cabaret. Instead, for a long ti me now, weve chosen to remain open, to grow and change more naturally, and when we play live, the music is often created during the performance. If we choose to record a performance, the recording itself is only evidence of that creative moment. The purpose of recording then, is to listen back for enjoyment."
Status: Touring band. Premiere May 19, 2007 at the Mission Creek Music Festival, San Francisco, CA.
