Broke up in original formation in 2011 and morphed into singer-songwriter thing

The (current) Albert Square is:

Logistically, a big band is hard

Andrew Weathers:





Last time in April, and it went well.

Where did the project name originate?

2001 (or 2)


What drew you to Creative Commons...was it just Jeff at Quote Unquote?

Recording at the same studio. Jeff reached out to Sim.

Friend did the artwork

Very innocent in nature. Friends helping friends.

Are you in other bands (he seemed to mention it in passing)?


Bob and others!

A new album?

Working on new material recently!

Play every once in a while.

New tour in Nov-Dec

Next year national tour?

Who are some people you think we should try to get on the show (aka, who are the important people in Creative Commons music today)?
Shinobu (Mike H of Hard Girls too)



Is there anything else you would like to say/tell us about?

Album is about becoming an adult, more-or-less. Sim is much more eloquent than this note.
