Katie Becker and the Bricklayers - Joy to the World
FINALLY! Thomas has a blog!
My good friend and ASM consigliere Thomas Costello started a blog. In addition to being my trusted confidant he also plays guitar and is the lead whiner in Brown Bison and has some other dope projects going on. Check his blog out. It is mostly for really tall nerds and scene kids. http://sometribe.tumblr.com/http://sometribe.tumblr.com/

The King Chaos - LOGOS
Joe Manno- Guitar Paul McBride- Bass Tim McBride- Drums
“This Logos holds always but humans always prove unable to understand it, both before hearing it and when they have first heard it. For though all things come to be in accordance with this Logos, humans are like the inexperienced when they experience such words and deeds as I set out, distinguishing each in accordance with its nature and saying how it is. But other people fail to notice...

We want to welcome the newest addition to the ASM fam. Into the Hemlock. Into the Hemlock is made up of Paul McBride ( who already has ties to ASM through Joe Manno & Paul McBride and The King Chaos) and Scott McFadden. The music they have been working on is really great.

So we haven’t been updating this blog as much as I hoped. Mostly because we have nothing to post. All of us are working on various projects currently but unfortunately it is almost impossible to get things done when you do not have money. But I figured Id update anyone who is interested (not that anyone is). Currently Thomas Costello (Brown Bison) and his brother Kevin are finishing up a...
. GRIMSBY by Michael Deagler . . On the whole, I am happy. I am. I think. I would say so. I feel accomplished, enough. And recognized enough. More accomplished than recognized, I think. Or the other way around. Is one better than the other? Sherman Somerville called me the most extant writer in the post-Foster Wallace cannon. And remember, Randolf Bartes called Somerville the most extant...
. REINDEER PEOPLE by Michael Deagler . . I practiced lying to my mother. I asked, “Did you hear about Lukoil? They’re killing Reindeer people in Siberia so they can buy up the tundra and drill for oil.” She and my father were splitting the Sunday New York Times across the breakfast table. He was browsing the events page for gay wedding announcements. She was reading the obituaries....
Starting production on our first film tonight. Hopefully it wont be a complete failure.

. SALT by Michael Deagler . . My grandfather said, “I know you know this but I’ll tell you again, the thing about my hearing, that I was sick when I was a boy, in the winter of Thirty-Three, just the coldest winter in Philadelphia and long, when my father was out of work, and we were moving all the time to beat the rent, squatting in houses, warehouses, even, and there was never heat, and...
Phil (Mitchell) Marsalona and I started making music a few months ago under the name Pangaea. Unfortunately, soon after beginning this project, life took over and it never really went anywhere. This video was a preview from our first (and only) song Homeless Blitzkrieg. The idea of Pangaea was sort of a precursor to this whole collaborative thing we are doing with ASM. Been thinking of making...
