May 29, 2006 :"T" & "T" announces first release to fan club

Dear Fan Club Member,
 
"T" & "T" is proud to announce the first unofficial release of material.
 
It consists of two snippets from our third rehearsel.
 
They ain't pretty, but they've got potential.....
 
They are available at http://home.comcast.net/~calpgrmr/tandthome.htm .
 
 
NOTE: When I use Internet Explorer, they play in some sort of "plug-in" -  and I have to stop them, and then start them again to get them to play correctly (sorry - I'm still learning how this internet stuff works).
 
 
     --<<<{{{{[[[[]]]]}}}}>>>--
 
 
Here is what would be the "Liner Notes":
============================================
 
The Band:
Tyler on Bass
Trevor on Drums
Dad on Guitar and yelling
 
 
The Ballad of John and Yoko by The Beatles:
 
This was actually the sixth or seventh take. Yep, that's Dad tryin to "la-la" his way through the lyrics (my voice was alredy gettin scratchy). Only lasts til the end of the second chorus.
 
 
Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones:
 
Fifth or sixth take. Should be much faster. Dad continues to yell his way through the lyrics. "We gotta get a singer, man." is pointed out at the end. There's an urban legend that The Ramones would play for 30 minutes, and everyone would leave, satisfied. Trevor is doing his best to pump out a Ramones beat, but we need more gusto!
 
Anyway, hope you like it. We aim to please.
 
 
May 29, 2006 :Welcome to the official "T" & "T" Fan Club

Dear Fan Club Member,

 

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, an email group has been successfully created called the "T" & "T" Fan Club, and you are among the first members.

 

While this has little, or no, significance at this time, it may in the future...., who knows????

 

Perhaps..??..... club member VISA cards, or special rates at fine hotels, or free brain surgery, after any fall, from any kind of tree that stands more than 12 feet high. Stranger things have happened.

 

Anyway, welcome.

In the interim, the band needs to decide how to react to the overwhelming demand for new "T" & "T"

Stay tuned ...

CD.

2/9/08 : Curtain Pulled on "The News"

The performance Saturday night at the Jack London School Variety Show by "The News", a highly popular Jr. high school jazz group starring bassist Trevor Niemi, was abruptly stopped by school officials.

 

During a rendition of The Beatles "Come Together", the curtain was closed and power was cut off.

 

The complaint, according to bystanders, was the verse "... he shoot coca cola ...", which administrators found offensive, unlike the rest of the lyrics.

 

Phone messages left with Mr. Niemi were not returned.

 

 

3/31/08 : And then, everything was different...

Dear Fan Club Member,

 

About an hour ago I hooked up my (17 year old) synthesizer to "the system". Tyler has not stopped playing since. He has never played a piano based instrument before. .....

 

Stay tuned   ......

 

 

4/11/08 : spring '08

Dear Fan Club,

 

"T" & "T" is pleased to announce that the fine people who provide our web site (www.comcast.net) have successfully upgraded their system, … so, now we can share much more material with our many fans.

 

The entire “T” & “T” organization would like to thank Comcast for providing this service.

 

It will take a few days to update the web page, so hang in there…

 

We’ll knock you off your feet, soon….

 

 

4/20/08 : 420/08

Dear Fan Club Member,

 

Because our website address (home.comcast.net/~calpgrmr/tandthome.htm) is a little difficult to remember, and Dad's too cheap to buy us a real website, we are trying MySpace and Facebook to spread the word.

 

Once you find us there, you can click on our site address which is listed in both places.

 

So ........

On MySpace (which I'm told is no longer cool):

http://www.myspace.com/callustnt   ... (call us t n t)

 

Or, if you have an account on Facebook:

http://www.facebook.com (search for : "T" & "T")

 

We have several hours of new recordings behind us, and will have fresh material ready to share soon.

 

We aim to please.

 

the management

 

 

p.s. It's "4/20" and Trevor's 18th birthday! "He's eighteen and HE LIKES IT!"

 

 

5/23/08 : Web site update #1

Dear Fan Club Member,

 

In preperation for the next web site update, we've rearranged the "Prior Releases" page.

As we mentioned, we got some very good recordings on June 20. About 2 and a half hours worth.
