WHAT YOU'RE READING was last fooled with on December 20, 2011.
Completed so far (at Studio in the Country): piano, organ and drum tracks. Completed Uptown: bass, a ton of keyboards, trinkets and vocals. Next in line: bi-coastal mixing, mastering, artworking, and vinyling.
THE RECORD AFTER THAT ONE.
The thing is mostly written and will be rehearsed, recorded and hopefully mixed before the end of 2011.

PROMIS is a two-piece combo from New Orleans with an electronic piano, combo organ, and drums. We have been playing since December 30, 2002, and intend to play until we are very old. Below are MP3s of our first ten songs, which date from 2002 and 2003. (They were released on CD in 2005 right before Hurricane Katrina, and if you would like a copy of that CD, please let us know.) These recordings aren't the best representation of where we're at now, but all that's available for you. We have developed a host of songs since these, and recorded most of them. Here's a sample. Even that's pretty old, though it is one of the final recordings tracked in the long gone Capstan Recording studio. There will be new hi-fi representations available soon. (Hopefully.)
ALSO CHECK OUT.
Eric's WTUL DJ set on Friday mornings from 10 AM - 12 PM CST. Usually it streams on the internet. Eric also plays in a few other great bands, so consult noladiy.org for appearances by Opposable Thumbs, Halfys, Secret Passage, and whatever else he's got cooking.
