We basiclly have had 2 main demos: One featuring a few badly recorded live tracks we called "Demolicious" and our newer promo/demo thats pretty well self titled gains a new song every week, so i guess you could say it's still in the prosses of becoming an album.


Feeling a bit camera shy


In The Attic happened when me, matt and mikeyd met in school, started jamming a bit, and realized we had an unusual sound because of our different tastes in music. a lot of more complex melodies of classical and jazz music, but some of the simple chords of most modern folk... the truth of it is we'll play whatever any of us makes up in our head. sometimes it's nice, sometimes it's mean, sometimes it's crazy, mostly it's music...

Some of our primary influences include Hendrix, Zappa, CCR, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Mars Volta, RHCP, Sublime, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, The Dead, Phish, The Doors, Muse, Tom Waits, Les Claypool, Keller Williams, Buckethead, and Nirvana
