Biography

Self-released "Lost Love" CD now availble for sale worldwide at all 17 Marc Jacobs stores. Also available online at iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, and eMusic.

Unsolved Mysteries is everything weird that you barely rehash from childhood memory. It is like watching America's Wildest Police Chases, like finding Garbage Pale Kid's Cards with hypodermic needle holes in them, or finding a dead dog in a trashbag. It's about winning five dollars jumping the neighborhood ramp on a janky BMX. It's about feeling mystic.

Some Russian guy bootlegged the album on his LiveJournal.. and we think that's pretty cool

Excerpt from Mumur magazine cover story, April 2007:

Musically speaking, the band's members come from a variety of different directions and this is the first pop-oriented project for all of them. Jon says, "The last real band I was in was a death metal band in high school... I was the singer, and it was kind of a high-pitched banshee-type thing... Genesis' 'Invisible Touch' was the first album I really listened to, and it's always been my favorite album, because when I heard it first, it was just on the radio, and without any real subjective views I just liked it. Shortly after that I got into rap 'cause my friends were into it, and I started to realize that music is more than music... I was recording mixtapes... Wearing a Deon Sanders jersey, a cross chain, and I had a fresh fade. That got boring quick... Music is more than music. It's a way of life," says Jon.
