Another Dead Clown, The Cowmen, Box Cutter

Another Dead Clown

The “band” started as a joke between childhood friends, a pseudonym
for the latest song or stupid idea. Later, Another Dead Clown became
the “band” responsible for college recordings and open-mic
appearances, as well as more songs and stupid ideas (now frequently
involving alcohol). Soon, there was a backlog of songs and stupid
ideas, and a deep roster of “band members” that had played along the
way. So we started to play as often as possible.

We interrupted Holiday parties with Curtis Mayfield sound-a-likes
(“Santa Got Robbed”), recorded demos in the backseat of our friends
cars (thanks Kevin), freestyle battled about Star Wars during playoff
games (e.g. “I grew up on Tatooine, I used to find droids with
Kenobi”), forced our friends to record on instruments they’d never
played (sorry Mike, Joe, Zach and Aaron), and made houseguests
improvise verses on Irish Dirges (sorry Meghan, Mike, Morgan, Denise,
and Kevin). Every show began with the announcement (read: warning)
that “we are Another Dead Clown, and so are you, so if you don’t like
the way something sounds come on up and fix it.”

Eventually (after nearly losing primary songwriter and founding member
Chris O’Keeffe in the French Pyrenees), the “band” became a band and
we started recruiting more friends, family, and innocent bystanders to
take part. The regular lineup is now Chris O’Keeffe, Gerad O’Shea,
Meagan Brus, and Ian Deming, but our all-inclusive attitude remains.
We gave up the pre-show warning (after being nearly derailed a few
times) but if you come to a show there’s a 60% chance you’ll end up
with a harmonica, ukelele, megaphone, or drum stick in your hand.

The point of all of this, is that you are Another Dead Clown as much
as we are, so come play with us…forever, and ever, and ever.

The Cowmen

Three brothers bonded in blood. Same Dad different moms. Reunited by the desert.

Box Cutter

To kill time before the pending Apocalypse, three guys formed a group around the idea that music can simultaneously be a tool, a weapon and a sexual innuendo, all at once. Upon this startling and frenetic revelation, Box Cutter was born, built and bastardized. The rest, as they say, is bullshittery.
