new york city pop band


was formed by charles ramsey in 2002. the primary aim was to produce music which was ambient/minimalist/fusion in nature, as well as to create music in the tradition of 1960s kitsch. these remain some of the band's foremost goals, but recently other interests have emerged, viz, making use of more extensive dissonance à la the second vienese school or that of free jazz, and in turn integrating this back into harmonic structures associated with more popular forms of music. another interest is simply testing the limits of patience and good taste in general.

"but," the band says, "irrespective of compositional techniques, our main goal will always be to create something interesting, entertaining, and stamped with the indelible mark of an abundance of life."
