So through some connections my band is going to be interviewed on a radio show in Connecticut (we're a small local band in Nebraska). Still awesome though!

Tune in if you're bored?

"On May 14th, tune in to WSIN 1590 AM if you're in Connecticut, or check out radio.southernct.edu/ at about 10:30 CST to hear a couple of songs from the Flying Kards, and a short interview with our very own Ross!"


It's part of a 24 hour show they're doing, and at one point they're interviewing the bands of some Weezer forum board members (one of the hosts is a member on those boards).

I like the music a lot, but honestly the singing is out of tune with the music except on Reason To Believe, and its alright on Glacier steps. But the guitar during the verses of reason to Believe is sex, great use of effects and using a myriad of tones. I like it overall, just wish the singing was a bit more in tune. Good luck on the interview! :)

Hey thanks for the kind words, all :D

As for the vocals, we know. That's the most common feedback we get. The good thing is, it's actually been about a year now since we made those recordings, and believe me when I say the vocals are getting better.

We actually recorded ourselves rehearsing some newer songs today and we might put those up on the myspace as well, so I'll let you guys know!

Alright! I threw together a few snippets. Keep in mind, we just mic'd the room up a bit. Some of these songs have only been played once or twice, and I'm on drums.

Basically what I'm tryng to say is, these are very rough. Hopefully they'll be in great shape real soon!

Thanks a lot, Teej.. that means a lot to me/us.

You were right though, I do play guitar mainly.. our drummer has been flakey as of late though, so when he's not there, I get stuck on the drums, because I can sort of play them haha.


Thanks again though.. and yeah, I love that song too. There are some really cool quiet moments, and then some awesome rawk moments as well.

Went well... for anybody who didn't listen last night but wouldn't mind hearing it, we went a head and recorded it. I'm putting it on the myspace for a while -
