United Nations

United Nations

A very rare appearance by the "almost" unknown line-up of this experimental
punk super-group, whose roots go back to at least 2005, and were formed by
Geoff Rickly, the singer/lyricist of the seminal post-hardcore band:
Thursday.

Other artists rumored to be involved in the project most notably include:
Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw/Head Automatica fame along with Ben Koller of
Converge. A handful of other names have also been mentioned: Christopher
Conger(The Number Twelve Looks Like You), Eric Cooper (Kiss It Goodbye),
Lukas Previn (Acid Tiger), Tom Keeley (Thursday), and Jonah Bayer (The
Lovekill).

Since Rickly is the only member whose primary band is currently not under
contract, his name is the only one that can legally appear in press
materials. Press photos of the band released in 2008 depict four people
wearing Ronald Reagan masks, believed to be because of this reason. The
only exception to this being when Daryl briefly mentioned being involved in
the project to Punk News in 2005 (http://www.punknews.org/article/13238).

The actual international organization, United Nations, for which the band
is named after, discovered that a musical group had formed under the name
of United Nations, and ordered Facebook to remove their official page.
After deleting their page, Facebook informed the band about the removal and
also stated, "The use of the name 'United Nations' by the Band and the use
of its Logo which resembles the UN emblem has not been authorized and
violates international and United States laws…" The band's record label
comically responded the situation stating, "The United Nations, an
international organization of some kind, has been taking issue with the
band that shares it's name. Who had the name first remains open to debate,
but the problem exists nonetheless."Their label also hinted at the
possibility of no longer being able to release their debut album. In
December 2008, a little over a month after the band's Facebook was deleted,
their MySpace page was also deleted.
