f.k.a. P.B.A.R.

"formerly known as pitbull assrape." in the beginning, i got a text message from woji that said i was in the band. i'd like to say that was in august of either 2007 or 2008, probably 2007. we had been drafted to support and open up for the band "the studs" down in normal, illinois on the main strip before they reconstructed all of it. so we ended up playing out at the trans-space gallery, which was an art gallery that was condemned or being shut down or something (or something.) so we went a few cars deep down there, i don't believe any of us went to school there (except for mark who set up the show, as far as i know,) and we found a trap door basement in this gallery. you do the math on what we did. anyway, we had 2 days to practice before this show, and we managed to get two practices in. we also managed to sneak a keyboard into a "punk" band, shit we even made up a song called "we have a keyboard in our band," i dont think there were any other lyrics. i think "blah blah blah" was around for the first two practices and that got played as well, in addition to "in the news today" (with ben on a keyboard,) a song called "ROBOCOP is a seven letter word" that was a noise-off (me and woji know our noises,) some song called "christ was a kike" and fuck if i know what else we did. needless to say, we partied heartily. so now, we began practicing weekly, sometimes bi-weekly, in woji's basement in mt. greenwood, which is on the south side of chicago. spent a good chunk of time there, but now i cant remember if we moved to blue island at the practice space above haas tavern before the second show or not... so we spent from lets say september to december practicing for our second show which was once again with the studs

any fucking way, i figure if you're still reading about our history, maybe you'd be interested in this:

that video is from the studs house on new years eve, i'd like to say 2007 going in to 2008, but how should i know, i was on acid. i enjoy the fact that we have it, many thanks to eileen. i'm also not sure of how many shows we played as pitbull assrape, but i know we definitely were situated in blue island at this point, we threw a couple shows there, and a couple parties where the entire blue island police department was involved which led to the eventual eviction of the tenant. these pictures are from june 22nd, 2008, and i think we look more like yippies now than we do in these pictures. lousy longhairs.

i dunno what to talk about now. we wrote viet-nam and then we were sex bunker. time flies on heavy dope.

this has been,
bert
