Drawers Rising

September 16, 2009
The key to being in a successful band is portraying a positive image at all times and making new friends whenever possible.

The key to being in a successful band is portraying a positive image at all times and making new friends whenever possible.

The times, they are a-busy. Atomic Drawers has recently been keeping up a feverish pace on all things not having to do with Atomic Drawers; however, we have found time to do a little bit of practicing and a whole lot of writing. The new songs are stacking up faster than Billy and I can actually figure out how they’re going to sound. 

And, get this: some of them contain neither profanity or nor alcohol references. It remains to be seen whether our fan(s) respond(s) to this strange, new direction for the band, but we must grow as artists, always exploring new planes of creativity within the plying our craft.

With expensive studio time on the horizon, coupled with the fact that we don’t actually get paid anything (except for your extremely valued applause and the occasional and much, much appreciated free drink,) we’ve decided that the best way to fund the new Atomic Drawers Studio Album (tentatively entitled, “Old Glory–A Tribute to America,” or “Kill Some of ‘Em,” or “Soul Kitchenette,” or “Pantless,” or “Coniption Fit,” or maybe “T-Shirt and Fillers”) is through a Celebrity Auction of valuable Atomic Drawers memorabilia.

The following is just a tiny sampling of the various Heirloom-Quality Atomic Drawers Keepsakes that you and your family will value for years to come:

Here’s the pen that Billy used to scribe the lyric to “T-Shirt”:

*The item in the photo above could simply be an artistic representation of the actual item up for auction.

Next up, the half-full (as of this writing) pack of cigarettes, some of which were smoked during an Atomic Drawers rehearsal:

This is in no way an Atomic Drawers endorsement of cigarette smoking.  The last thing we need is those obnoxious, healthy-looking "The Truth" kids harrassing us.

Next up, some leftover bandages from when I burned the holy hell out of my strummin’ hand after a gig last February:
Don't I take good pictures?  It almost looks like a random image from the internets.  That's what I was going for, though.

I know, I know.  It’s hard to believe that we’d be willing to part with such important talismen (talismans?) of our rise to fame, but we need the cash.  I know what your next question is, and no, we haven’t decided whether or not this is going to be an online auction or a black-tie type of event, but we’ll let you know when the final arrangements have been made.
Oh, and we’re playing tonight at Lincoln’s Roadhouse at around 9:00.  We’re doing several originals, a new one, etc. and would love to have you.  Or, if you respond better to directness,  get off of your ass and come see us.

Or, after your Wednesday night date at which the lady will have the Linquini with Clam Sauce and a Coke with no ice, you should head down to Lincoln’s Roadhouse for Atomic Drawers. 

Why?  Because you have The Attitude.
