Pound WI = Noisecore gone heartache.

Live '98 and '99

9 October, Saturday.
O'Cayz Corrall, Madison WI

WE DON'T HAVE A SCHTICK. But the confrontational front man thing has become such a cliche lately. »

25 June, Saturday.
O'Cayz Corrall, Madison WI

We were all really nervous, including Jerry, who never gets nervous. »

6 May, Thursday.
O'Cayz Corrall, Madison WI

It was possibly the worst turnout we've ever had at a show in Madison. It was also one of the best we've ever played. »

20 March, Saturday.
South Side VFW, Sheboygan WI

I think I hyperventilated during our last song. »

12 February, Friday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

I guess we can add the word catharsis to our press kit. »

31 December, Thursday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

New Year's Eve once again. For god's sake, make your resolution something you have a hope in hell of keeping. »

30 December, Wednesday.
The Factory, DePere WI

There is no other venue that can so completely erase the knowledge of my own songs from my gray matter. »

17 December, Thursday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

For some reason I got all goofy before this show and whipped up a commemorative lyric sheet so the audience could follow along or something. »

19 November, Thursday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

I got to jump around more unencumbered by the vocalist/front-man thing. »

29 October-1 November.
The Midwest Once Again

The trip started off inauspiciously. Before we even started to load van, crushing back pain had brought me to my knees. This had only happened to me once before and I wasn't looking forward to going through it again, especially in light of a four-day weekend of rawk. »

7 October, Wednesday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

I guess there's something to be said for jumping around like a spazz and beating the crap out of your guitar. »

19 September, Saturday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

We played quite an excellent set for a change. It's amazing what a little rehearsal can do. »

18 September, Friday.
Agape Java Hut, Normal IL

I don't know if it was the blood-red walls or what, but the basement coffehouse began to bring me down again. »

11 September, Friday.
The Cornerstone, Eau Claire WI

The conventional wisdom about "paying your dues" is starting to wear rather thin. »

21 August, Friday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

Despite heartless employers and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, the show must go on. »

19 August, Wednesday.
The Factory, DePere WI

Of course, the huge crowd of three kids and the other band playing cards on the floor didn't help matters any. »

18 July, Saturday.
Urban Outfitters, Madison WI

Some of the yuppies wandering among the $26 baseball caps even stuck their fingers in their ears. »

20 June, Saturday.
Hard Times Cafe, Rockford IL

Back in Rockford again. This time at a sports bar. How do we get ourselves into these things? »

19 June, Friday.
That One Place, Rockford IL

The swarm of kids ostensibly attending the show seemed to feel that it was way cooler to mill around on the street outside than to actually pay attention to the crappy bands they had paid to "see." »

12 June, Friday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

The bands were good, the crowd wasn't. The turnout was dismal and the folks that were there really didn't seem very enthralled. »

30 May, Saturday.
The Empty Bottle, Chicago IL

OK, now we're getting somewhere. This was our fifth show in Chicago, but our first good one. »

21-25 May.
Taking the Midwest by Storm

Open-reel video tape recorders, Rush belt buckles, and $39 drum machines, aww yeaaah. »

25 April, Saturday.
Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago IL

By the time we pulled into the IIT quad, it had been raining for sometime. »

19 April, Sunday.
Mickey's Tavern, Madison WI

Not the weirdest show we've ever played, but kinda strange. I got the impression that a lot of people were looking at the band in front of the dart board and wondering just what was possessing us. »

9 April, Thursday.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison WI

This was the most fun I've had playing a show in a long time. First of all, we played really well. »

4 April, Saturday.
The Mission, Steven's Point WI

As we picked up our instruments, it looked as though no one was there and those that were, weren't particularly interested in paying attention. I politely asked everyone to come up to the front and it worked. »

27 March, Friday.
Agape Java Hut, Normal IL

This was an odd show. I'm not quite sure why though. I mean, compared to the weekend before, it was a dream... »

20 March, Friday.
Tiamat Record Store, Peoria IL

From the top down, this has to have been the worst show we've played in the last couple of years. »

6-7 March Record Release Weekend
To make a big deal out of our new 7-inch, we decided to do two shows—one for the drunks, one for the kids. »

20 February, Friday.
Factory Coffeehouse, DePere WI

We played last, although there was some debate as to whether that meant we were actually "headlining." »

13 February, Friday.
Sankofa Theater, Evansville IN

Nine hundred miles is a REALLY long way to drive for a one-off. »

New Year's Eve.
O'Cayz Corral, Madison

Our start time, at 10:30 p.m., meant that the place was rather empty and the folks there had only one thing on their minds—boozin'. »
