So there was this rather sad attempt at forming a band some time back. In fact, there were two attempts, although one of them was admitted to just be a joke for purposes that will be explained below. See if you can figure out which is which.
Links to mp3s of all recorded tunes can be found at left.
Formed back in or around 1996, four friends from high school tossed away a bit of money and free time on instruments and jamming, but never bothered to practice or take lessons. It featured Paul Lane on bass, Chris Marquis on vocals and guitar, Danylo Paszkowski (sorry if I misspelled that, Dan!) on drums and Steve Voght on guitar. For some unapparent reason they recorded the detrius that resulted, but luckily the quality of most of it was beyond the ability of any producer to rescue and make sound respectable, even with sampling. However, a few tracks did survive, but luckily all were neutered before they could reproduce. Here you can find their final resting place.
Shiloh - Recorded on a camping trip to the Adirondack Mountains in 1997, this probably represents the apex of fame, talent and skill for the band. Of course they still played on and off for another three years, and a reunion tour is likely when they've all blown the last of their royalty checks. Anyway, this was Chris and Steve on acoustic guitars at a lakeshore.
Whirligig - This tune was actually recorded in 2001 as a solo project after the band had broken up (well, I guess technically it should be called a hiatus, since there was no exciting fight or argument or formal decision to terminate the group, but they're now spread out over a 3000 mile span - a move lauded by most of the UN security council) although it was originally drafted and several takes were attempted while everyone was present. Thus, it qualifies as an MT tune, and shares the added notoriety of being the only time Steve has ever been recorded doing the vocals and sounded on tape just like he thought he sounded when doing the singing.
Stuffed Animals From Hell
Formed and broke up in the spring of 2000. It featured Mark Pomerantz on vocals, Steve Voght on guitar and Dave Westerman on 40 gallon garbage can, 40oz Olde English and vocals. Although this group had a setlist of only two tunes, it once performed for a live audience of nearly 200 people in a show that was simulcast on campus television. Luckily the technician was asleep at the time and didn't record the results, and the band knew better than to tape most of their adventures.
Pink Fuzzy Bunnies - This tune, one of the original cornerstones of the SAFH repertoire, went unavailable for many months after first being thrust upon an unsuspecting public. Demand for the tune remained high, culminating in this recording, which was laid down in a reunion session featuring two of the original three members of the band, with Dave taking over all vocal duties.
