Longwave

longwave has been dropped by RCA records. here's a note on longwave's message board from steve, the lead singer/guitarist:

--

hi guys

yes it is true. to explain would take a long time and would probably be
very boring.......as for the shows, there were a lot that fell through for
money reasons, and a lot for cancellations by the bands we were playing
with. aside from the couple of shows close to home we just did there will
be no more for a while. we are working on new songs and we need to figure
out who will be putting out longwave records in the future. once we know
more about that we will be playing again. thanks a lot...................

steve

Steve from Longwave was playing drums for Falcon (falcontheband.com) at their show on 12/9 at Sin-e. Falcon also features Shannon from Longwave on guitar. They were very good--their songs brought to mind Soft Bulletin era Flaming Lips.

the band reminded my friend of the flaming lips.

Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips.

They sounded nothing like Yoshimi. Not at all.

hey yall me and my friend we just wanted to say thanks for the info about the scene he was sayin longwave styaing at the label for about 5 years and i said no it certainly aint the case they're droppin him, and he figures it's on account of ethical differences of opinion, i think personally it's the way of the world, you gotta hit bottom before you really learn to love again ... point is we got the music

That's a good question. I wish there was somewhere that you could find this information out at.

i heard that Longwave might be dropped from their label. Confirm/Deny?

Posted by solace | December 14, 2005 8:17 PM

Deny. Longwave were dropped from an F-16 Falcon fighter plane as part of a publicity stunt for their new single, "Soft Lips".

Bad band, bad forum posts, a bad day for the internet.

"A bad day for the internet."

It's always a lousy day when you take yourself uber-seriously. Strap on your parachute, anonymous. We're goin' sky-diving. Have some fun!

Don't worry. Our label, Confirm/Deny, is picking up the tab.
