End Up


Thursday night, End Up records had a party at Castle Anthrax to celebrate the release of Caithlin De Marrais's new single, The Fire. If you want to download the song go here and make it so, but if you do, consider dropping a little money in the bucket for Caithlin's mother's not-for-profit, The Evergreen Network . . .

At the End Up party we all danced and sang and played instruments whether we knew how to play them or not. Therese put down her accordion and played some murder ballads. Andrew knocked out a couple of songs and even I made my New York debut as a singer/songwriter. No one was hurt in the process.

Scott read us a little of his poetry which he'd been polishing all day. He was all gussied up with projections from The Hobbit playing on the wall and a full band accompanying him, making him look like the beatnik we all know he is.

Even Bernie put down his camera and pounded the skins and he's been all musical ever since, writing songs with Lauren, in preparation for their top-secret collaboration. I want to tell you about it, but they swore I'd sleep with the pigeons if I revealed anything . . .

We love "the fire" and whenever we listen to it Huck says, "They're so sad. This is sad." And then he asks, "Is that Lauren singing?"

You can tell him that Lauren is playing the guitar at the end. The smoking solo reminiscent of another song Huck may know . . .
