Keep your eyes open for Runner popping up in random US cities, as we will be jet-setting a bit through January in a series of secret shows. The ones we can tell you about are listed below. Check into the site for updates and some goofy old photos we found.
Take care, be safe, and we'll see you in 2005!
While we have your eyes, please check out The Improper Bostonian's lovely write up of our lovely rock band. Also, THANK YOU to all who made it to the AceFu BBQ in NYC and the sold-out show at The Middle East the next night. We weren't lying about this bootlegging business - there's already been 2 that have popped up, which we will post within the next day or two. I also have word that there's a bootleg coming in of our show at The Winnepeg Arena with Alice Cooper. Believe me, you'll hear about it when it goes up - just keep checking the site.
That's all for now. Hope that you can drop everything and come see as at one of these shows.
First, thank you to Roger's brother Randy Knight, who filled-in on bass for 3 shows with us. He is an amazing player (he's Roger's brother after all), and for those of you at the South Shore Music Circus, you got to witness his signature "Rising Phoenix" bass move.
That brings us to Jim Zavadoski - of former Damn Personals, Crash n' Burn notoriety. Jim has filled the bass slot for us and we are on our 2 month anniversary together! That lovable bastard...
As for former Runner bass demon, Mike Oor, he now plays one of them guitars with 6 strings on them. Not a bass, a good 'ol electric. He's playing with Heidi Saperstein. Check it out: www.heidisaperstein.com
Thanks to Rick McCarthy for emergency gear repair.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Virgin Mega Store mini-tour - NYC, Boston, and Chicago. Check out a song from the "un-plugged" Boston gig in the Opium Den.
Thank you to Brad Hyland of Headband for doing sound at our NYC Virgin in-store.
Next it was a bit of recording out in Chicago where we got to work with the pros in bad-ass Engine studios. Will you be able to hear what went on? I hope so, but for now it's a big secret.
Then, it was Alice time. Cooper, that is. What a fucking blast opening everynight for a living legend. The thanks are needed for everyone involved: Chuck, Roxie, Tommy, Cesar, Toby, Pat, Paul, Randy, Zig-Zag, Craig, Chris, and of course, Alice. There's a few more we forgot, but we made tons of new fans and had a crash-course in what a major touring act is all about. They put up with a lot of shit from us, but we showed how we do our thing and they dug it. These guys are legends, have worked with a million other legends, and we were honored that they would hang out with us and impart some hard earned wisdom.
Thanks AGAIN to all the great fans we made - in every city! We had an amazing time meeting everyone and spending every night in Canada out until 5 in the morning. Check it out - we've already been asked back to Williamsport, PA! It's in the shows section. Finally, thanks to Los for booking us as his last act at Rudy's. It was godd time rock n' roll party - LOUD! So that's the thanks for now.
New shows are up. New bootlegs in the Opium Den. New photos in the Tour Diary!
Order our CD! New song on Crisp. Tour plans solidifying for October. We have been nominated for a coupla BMA's (Boston Music Awards), so please cast your vote for the RUNNER!
Alright - go have fun.
