The Colossal EP - Asian Man Records Jan 2003

"Embers Only" from "The Colossal EP"
"Brave The Elements" from "The Colossal EP"
"Tabel Settings" from the comp "Mailorder for the Masses" on Asian Man Records

The Newest addition to the Asian Man family, I honestly don't know much about these guys. I heard them on the new Asian Man comp "Mailorder for the Masses" and loved the song. The band features Rob Kellenberger who was previously in such bands as Tuesday and Slapstick (both of which featured Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio) and played on the first Chinkees album. The band also has Pat Ford who was in a band called The Flowers, which also had Dan Andriano as member. So if you're a fan of any of those bands then be sure to check these guys out. On the Asian Man site they are described as "indie rock with a pop flair, adding jazz and math rock influences," now doesn't that just sound like good music.... I think so. If you are in the Chicago area be sure to check these guys out and if you're not in that area hopefully Mr. Park will send them on tour soon. Also be sure to get the EP which hits stores in January of next year.
