Still Dead

Greetings, no one,

Frank the bass player, here. This entry comes on an evening of peculiar circumstances; I am 1272 miles away from the rest of the band on a night we [they?] are to play one of the first shows we [Rich] put on in New Brunswick, NJ. In absentia, I figured I'd update the blog while Rich and Neil carry all the equipment into a basement and support the guys and ladies of the NB scene:


The Alamo peoples are fantastic, once again, for opening up their doors.

Since I'm not there and cannot do many useful things relating to the actual show, such as drinking beer or playing bass guitar, I figured it'd be worthwhile to update the blog. The precursor to this idea was signing into the blog for the first time since July and abusing myself for not having updated any time sooner. It's been ages. Aside from Pharaoh-related activities, we don't go on the internet all that often and as such have been slightly out of the loop as far as internet politics and goings-on go.

While aware of some of the more odious influences on this particular medium such as SOPA and all the little Hydra-headed bills that have either replaced or reanimated its components, it's only just now that I'm seeing some of the consequences; some of our greatest friends on the internet, who include music-uploading blogs like Hellcrust and Goodnight, Whatever You Are!, have been forced to either change format or shutter entirely in the midst of the blowback from copyright-infringement legislation. This is sad to me. Either by supplying us with material to listen to (and rip off) or by hosting our work among their content, these bloggers and their derrings-do have been with us since we began playing as Pharaoh in 2009.

I am saddened by this. I know that sharing has been a large part of my life. I've downloaded a bunch of records that I've later purchased, and I've contributed more personally to the incomes of some of my favorite artists by hearing them for free and then seeking out their live shows - so that I could pass my money to them directly. Unfortunately it's been agreed-upon - by whom I'm not entirely sure - that this isn't the best way for content to be delivered to Us, and so it is no longer a Thing. Bummer. Luckily, most of these writers continue their work in a purely promotional format. I am less saddened. In any case it surprised me and I would like to thank the contributors to whom I actually owe a lot. Please go link-jumping. Check out some of the titles still archived in these pages and you will owe yourself a lot, too.

On a more positive note, we have still been alive. A lot of the time these days we'll speak with people wondering what we've been up to and whether we're still a band. We are. The majority of time is spent on our basement studio, hence the overall lack of shows and releases. Worry not, Nobody, we haven't been on hiatus; before Halloween we'll have a treat for all listeners who keep it real. Almost immediately after that we'll be cutting all of the new material we'll be releasing on our LP this winter. This will be all new stuff. Nothing from I, Murderer, I, and nothing from This House is Doomed. We hope to have the record available through our pals at A389 once again, and will be back to our Pharaohy ways as soon as our new subterranean dwelling is complete.

We will build it, and noise will happen.

Goodnight, whatever you are.

Poolside from New Orleans,
Francis

ps, a special thank you to Mr. Richard Bukowski Sr.!

Stray readers in New Jersey and its surrounding areas, follow your nose and find yourself a punk to ask where in New Brunswick you can see us with ETERNAL FUZZ and more on Wednesday, April 25.

But skulk about THE MEATLOCKER on Bloomfield Ave in Montclair, NJ, this Friday the 27th and you will find us there as well. Thats Dutch Guts territory.

May the sun never rise.
