Latest News…

We’ve been really busy touring the antarctic suburbs for the past year since we made the DVD. It’s a little cold, but the people are super friendly on account of they’re crazy. People ask why we’re wasting our time down there when we could be playing NY, LA, Chicago, etc. Playing NY would be so obvious… so 2001. We got a letter from a fan in antarctica and he sounded crazy. At first we just put it in the crazy box along with the rest of those letters, but then we realized that he probably didn’t get enough sunlight and had gone off his rocker as a result. Then someone thought that because of where he sat on the pole he got way too much sunlight, and then we started arguing about it. We decided to go down ourselves and check because we all liked the idea of someone sitting on the pole.

Which brings us to the first quarter of 2006. It took us a minute to edit the DVD last summer because Karina and I had to edit out the thousands of bad shots of us. It’s interesting what camera guys can get when they’re in the pit filming up our skirts. We had a good time in the editing bay laughing at ourselves because for the past ten years we had imagined that we looked way cooler on stage. This is not the case. We are not cool at all . To top it off, when we were doing the commentary the first time around, Karina and I started arguing, which then escalated into a full
blown fight. The guys thought it was the funniest thing they had ever heard, but we decided to keep the first pass at the commentary to ourselves. It actually is the funniest thing we could ever release, but we burned all copies, so you will never know.

Now that the DVD is out, we have decided it’s probably time to finish those songs we claimed to be writing. We managed to play one at the show without blowing it, but we really should have finished them all a year ago when we started them, because we forgot a lot of the parts between then and now. I swear we will do it. We are almost done with a bunch of songs. We talked about putting them all together and making one long medley so that you couldn’t tell that they were missing a part. We will ask Fat Mike what he thinks of our Frankenrecord idea and get back to you.

New Record, New Site!

We’re proud to welcome you to phase one of the redesign. The Live Record came out yesterday and we figured that the new artwork was worth of a redesign. You’ll notice a few new things like Extreme Fans and DHC merch listed here. We’re working with everyone DHC related to provide everything possible. If you’re adventurous, you can always keep an eye on our Ebay auction monitor.

We’ll be phasing in new features of the site including having the band themselves post info here. In the mean time, GO BUY THE NEW ALBUM! ($13.99)
