Another Band Bites The Dust





Last night as I braved the cold walk home, a tune on my headphones came on and I wondered what said band was up to. I had been a fan, seen a few shows, even thought I should have included them in my year end "Best Of" picks. No worries, I'd see them in the new year and all would be fine. Enter Ghost of Christmas Future and the sad news, Sea Ray are breaking up. Their website carried the bad news. A last show on January 21 at Mercury Lounge in NYC is their finale. It seems reality was their biggest adversary citing, "the biggest difficulty we've failed to overcome is the financial challenge of being in an independent band full-time while maintaining any semblance of a personal life." Fair enough. It was either 100% or nothing so they choose the 'let's be friends" route. Some stars make it with huge drug habits, some despite a penchant for peeing on underage girls. Maybe Sea Ray needed a vice big enough to get them to the next level. A Go-Gos style groupie sex tape, a rusty trombone caught on video, did someone say pink sock? Hey, these are just suggestions! So because that was the Ghost of Christmas Future who told me the bad news, why not be a good Ebenezer and enjoy them while you can. The website has some great MP3s [check out "Revelry" and "Quiver"] and make sure to check out their last show on January 21st.
