Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everybody!
We are quite grateful for everyone who continues to stop by our website. The last year was fairly productive, but we're looking forward to upping the ante a bit in 2004. Mainly in that we hope to finally bring our notion of touring the US once again to it's fruition. We're still working on a tour for Australia as well. In and around that we have several recording projects in the works.
We were delighted to be joined onstage by our very own Brad Becker last Saturday at Arnie's here in Tulsa. We performed off-the-cuff renditions of "Down", "A Box Under His Bed" and the Pixies' classic "Where Is My Mind?" Brad is in town with his family for the holidays.
On our way back from a show we did in Kansas, we shot a video for "We Three Kings." It is track 2 off the new Christmas 2003 EP. Most of the footage was shot in the panhandle of Oklahoma. You can view a very Lo-Fi version of the video by clicking on the banner below. It may take a while to load, but you can just sit back and drink some eggnog while you're waiting. Unless you have a high-speed connection, in which case we are quite jealous. Cheers!

"..he come grooving up slowly."
Yeah, that's John on vacation in England last week. Yeah, that's "the" crosswalk at Abbey Road in London. Yeah, he was mesmerized and had to walk back and forth across it for an entire morning. Yeah, he was grateful that his girlfriend took pictures. Yeah, it was splendid.

On June 23 we celebrated Mark's birthday at Bell's Amusement Park. Mark and our dear friend Michael Soucek got a little rambunctious so they had to take a "time out." Shame, shame, shame!
So you're wondering whatever happened to the "big news" we started gossiping about almost a year ago? Well, the music biz is a kind of anomaly whereby it's both fast-paced and snail-paced all at the same time. Be that as it may, things are still progressing. Among these things is still the potential for something happening more global for us. It's still just to early to divulge too much. But suffice it to say, we're working very hard on it. Other than that, it's the business of playing concerts and club dates as usual. That and researching more ways to market our new CD. Until next time... chow!

Last Monday night we did an interview and previewed our new CD on Rogers State University radio 91.3 in Claremore, Oklahoma. Many thanks to the wonderful DJ, Mr. Charlie Seven. He entertained us with his great humor, great questions, and a couple of Elvis Presley impersonations. We all goofed off and had a really good time. Thanks also to Anita Faragher and Zuri Louis for helping to chronicle the moment. And thanks to everyone who called in.

Mayfest was a lot of fun. We actually didn't know what to expect. We arrived prepared to play about 40 minutes and then were told that we had about an hour and half to fill up. So we played many songs off the new CD (Mayfest was our debut for the new CD), and we played many songs off of our previous CD's. And, we played a few fun cover songs. We have a lot of irons in the fire at the moment, as soon as some things pan out we'll be making an update on the news page. Hopefully soon. We have developed a new e-card to promote the new CD. You can download it here. Please be sure to share it with anyone and everyone you can possibly think of. And thanks to everyone who as purchased a copy of our new CD and to everyone who has sent us positive feedback. Until next time... cheers!

CREATURES OF BREAD &
In case you haven't noticed, things look different. The MAIN, NEWS, CONCERTS, & MERCHANDISE pages have all been overhauled. The new maintenance on the website will be a lengthy process. So in the interim, some pages will still have the old look, some will have a similar look with new colors, and some will look quite different. Think of it like when you drive down the highway and construction is going on everywhere, except hopefully our construction won't take as long as most city construction. So keep checking back as various pages will be updated frequently for a while.

We hate to begin this
post with some bad news, but such is life. Due to circumstances
beyond our control, our appearance at the Chicago International Pop
Overthrow on April 22 has been canceled. Many apologies to anyone
who as already made arrangements to see us there. We do hope to
schedule an appearance in that part of the country again sometime in
the future. In other news all principal recording for our new CD is
finished. We have but a few small parts to record and then to finish
the task of mixing. Things are going well, just a bit sluggish. We
never fully recovered from the downtime we endured to work on our
EPK, and every week someone in the band has either been sick or had
a sore throat. We don't like winter particularly. Enough complaining
though. We're glad to be getting on with things. The songs have
reached that point where you can start really seeing what the album
is going to be like. And early reports from our friends and
colleagues that have heard the album have been great. Of course
we're really looking forward to getting this thing out and working
on the next one. New songs are already piling up! Check back soon.
Same Bat-time! Same Bat-channel!

...the new record is coming soon. Final touches are being made. It rocks. It rolls. It's coming to you. Meanwhile, take note if you live in the midwest. We will be playing in Chicago, Illinois for the International Pop Overthrow on April 22 at the Abbey Pub. If you haven't travelled out for an Admiral Twin show in a while, this will be one not to miss! In answer to some of your e-mails, yes we will be making the new Admiral Twin EPK as well as our previous EPK available for purchase sometime in the future. And, the previously announced 1998 Tour video and other projects are still in the works as well. We just have too many irons in the fire at the moment. But they will be happening. New Admiral Twin logo merchandise is in the works as well. As always, thank you for returning to the official Admiral Twin website for updates on what we're up to. Check back soon!
