UPCOMING BIGBLUEMONKEY SHOWS
Saturday, April 20th, 2002 (St. Louis, MO)
Hello everyone. I got my computer back 4 hours ago, so the new page will begin construction tonight. So for the next couple days, this will be our temporary webpage. Sorry.
Anyway, we have a whole lot of big news to share with you. We never thought we would ever find the right person for the job, but we have. THERE IS A NEW MONKEY! Greg Haupt (formerly of Disturbing the Peace / the O.F.R.) is our second guitar player! We have always wanted to have 2 guitar players, but finding someone with the same charisma and personality as us was close to impossible. Greg stood out like a penis in a girls bathroom instantly. Greg's addition to the band has opened a whole new dimension in our songwriting. He has also increased the average height of our band from 5'11" to 11'7". The live show rocks harder thatn ever!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Mississippi Nights show last Saturday. The place was packed and we had a lot of fun. Thank you St Louis!!!!!!
We have an updated show schedule over there on the left. That's right - bigbluemonkey will be on the west coast leg of the VANS WARPED TOUR!!
The EP is almost finished getting mixed. It still needs to be mastered and pressed, but it already kicks ass! We are extremely proud of it.
We filmed a video last weekend for "Story of the Year" (off the upcoming EP) It's pretty rad. We drove around for a whole day and set up our equipment at random places and played until the cops came. It's pretty funny stuff. We set up in front of the arch and managed to play a whole song until a horse-cop galloped upon us and wound up hitting Dan with a billy club. It will all be available on the new home video "Apeshit 2002"
After only 3 years and 37,000 downloads, we finally updated our mp3.com page. We finally have 2 new songs on there you can download. I know tons of people have been there to download our songs and instead got old recordings of a different singer and really, really old songs. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you all Street Team members!!!! As usual you are kicking total ass. Email us to join and help spread the word.
One last thing. We have had a great time over the last couple of years and met some really awesome people. We've been pretty successful here in St Louis. To all of you people that we've seen at the shows for years and all the new faces we see every show, we owe you the world. You guys have helped us so much... ... ... In May we are packing up and moving to Orange County, CA. This band is our life, so we take it pretty seriously. And we know there's not to much more we can do here. We will always represent the STL, but now we will do it from the west coast. There will be a couple more shows in St Louis, including an EP release party, and a goodbye show.
Rock n Fucking Roll,
