FBE hasn't played a show in over a year, thanks to the people who are asking me what's up with us, and to those who haven't seen us play, well, I don't think that's completely out of the question. We'll let you know here and on the myspace page what's going on and if we decide to play one more show or record an album, or whatever...The thing is, we haven't gotten together to practice or played a show in a looooong time, but I think we'd all be down to still play, I know I would. Take care, hope to see you soon.

I just finished an amazing book-of-collected interviews from Punk Planet entitled: 'We Owe You Nothing-Punk Planet The collected interviews'. This book is a very informative read w/ interviews from various hardcore/punk acts such as Ian Mackeye, Los Crudos-Martin Sorrondeguy and the fellas, Endpoint's Duncan Barlow-probably more famously known as the singer from "By The Grace Of God", Mike Burkett(Fat Mike), and countless others. If one is interested in the history of good ol' fashioned hardcore and punk rock then one should definitely make a run to their local store for this one. The interviews are very in-depth and personal, and lots of talk about the business end of underground music, or lack thereof. A lot of it is about staying true to your craft, whether it be screen printing record sleeves by hand or singing your heart out to 7 people in an audience until it starts to matter. Jawbreaker (of course) and Jello Biafra were two of my absolute favorites of the interviews, and the book is just altogether GOOD. Check it.

We're almost, kinda, close to being part way done with the new release....kind of. We have about 11 songs, maybe one more or less, but the recording is near done. Its the other stuff that we're trying to figure out at the moment, i.e. artwork, finalization, blah, blah, blah. Hopefully we can get a couple final mixes of some songs up on here to let everyone know what the new record is all about. We're hoping for a late summer release date....*crossing fingers*. We have a couple dates posted and will have many more to come. Thx.

That's my attempt at writing a British accent, a poor one I know. So I went out to the warped tour this yr. It was pretty shitty, but there were four bands that I was really excited to see(Bad Religion,Nofx,Bayside,LTJ). But there was one other band that I had heard soooo much hype about, a band that I never really gave the time of day, I'd heard about the antics, and all the riff-raff associated with this band, but I just thought it was a big schtik. GALLOWS. They blew my mind. It was amazing, outstanding, pick your word, they were great. Their show made me want to go buy their albums, their attitude is what all the 'real' punk kids think but never have the balls to say out loud. They'll make you laugh, pump your fist, and give you a sense of what punk fucking rock used to be like before all the fuck-offs got on the bus. Support this band b/c they are some of the last of a dying breed, if you haven't heard it, You'll appreciate it.
