Not AN emergency...but THE Emergency

Don't have much time for a post but thought I'd give you some hard to find music to listen to over the weekend. A few years back there was a band that came together, recorded some amazing music, apparently signed with Atlantic Records...and then disappeared for a variety of reasons. Fortunately someone has put some of the music up on a MySpace site and you can hear a few songs from The Emergency, a band that I think could have really done something big.

The band consisted of Travis Zimmerman (Jupiter James/Cush), Jason Martin (Starflyer 59), Frank Lenz (Starflyer 59, Pedro the Lion, Fold Zandura), Dirk Lemmenes (Stavesacre), and Ryan Denne (Stavesacre).

Some pretty good music, but the album never saw the light of day. Enjoy!

boy, it is hard to find info about this project... but just today I stumbled across a post on the Stavesacre (RIP) message board where has someone has posted a (apparently legal) archive of the band's album. Not sure if it is greater than the sum of it's parts, but cool nonetheless. I was hoping more "arty." Still good. Found the post here:
