I am a one man band. I tour full time. I rap and dance and scream and split fake blood and have a video screen. I have played and toured with a ton of awesome bands.

Biography

When most people start bands, they think about what they can do to make a buzz and what they can do to get really big and how to comb their hair and what clothes are stage appropriate and bunches of other shit that I don't understand how to do.

I am the show is the rainbow.
I'm a one man band from Nebraska.
I rap and scream and sing and dance and spit blood and have a video screen. it's fun!
I tour full time and have toured with some sweet bands (see below, woot).

I have been doing this band for 2 1/2 years and already played just under 300 shows. yeah! I have sold out of all my eps and 7"s and my new full length has sold over 600 copies in the month and a half it's been out.

I have played with aloha / beep beep / books on tape / broken spindles / cex / daughters / decahedron / glass candy / gravy train!!!! / i am spoonbender / i am the world trade center / les georges leningrad / the locust / mare / mates of state / mc chris / mindless self indulgence / neil hamburger / paint it black / peelander-z / pelican / the rocket summer / ssion / stop it!! / troubled hubble / the young people / why? / yip-yip

I recently released my first full length record on Tsk! Tsk! records out of London. They have done records for Erase Errata and Mates of State. It's been great. It's nice to see my record in stores, and plus, Lisa is a great friend now, so that rules. The record is called "Radboyz ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!" and it's 9 tracks of really fucked up hip hop infulenced dancey rock stuff. Pretty sweet, I suppose.

June, I get to do a UK tour with Les Georges Leningrad and then I come home to do a nice fun tour with (almost) nu-metal freako's Mindless Self Indulgence. Yeah!

Yeah. I'd love to play CMJ. It seems very fun.
