From the yearly archives: "2001"

Holy sons bleed from their hearts
Holy ghosts bleed from their eyes

Holy virgins bleed from their legs and
Holy fathers bleed from their heads

Sonic spirit cast
A life, a piece of glass
Hurtling towards the planet
But you’d swear it was an accident

Heaven help us all
We’re seventh dimensional
Objects which our universes
Never did see before this curse

Woah, woah, woah, woah

Here we go

Those images of self spread out on screen
Are not to have or hold such is obscene
This is a life comprised of flaccid dreams
Insemination by artificial means

We’re defined by the bites on our hands
and our tireless sewer rat demands
And let’s reconstruct these lands
and fuck holding hands
Because we are imprisoned by the world we envisioned

We’re static prisoners … ???
So please cut the transmission and destroy the revision

Those images of self spread out on screen
Are not to have or hold such is obscene

This is a life comprised of flaccid dreams
Insemination by artificial means

Site operational.
Check out our contact information if you’d like to play a show with us. We’re ready and willing to play with any band at just about any venue.

Choose Your Own Adventure is going to some secret sessions in late August; we haven’t determined to which studio we’ll be going.

Check back for updates. We do that regularly.

Okay, so I lied. I’m sorry. We didn’t update the site as often as we should have, but… I mean, hey. Our accordion player is in Spain somewhere. Gimme a break.

On top of all that, our recording dates are set for September 24th, or something… late in September anyway. We’re recording three songs.

New shows:

September 15, saturday
Private party c/o Joe Kogut (Audubon, NJ)
Bands – CYOA, Terminal Velocipede, others TBA

October 26
Camden County College
Bands TBA

Stay tuned for additional updates [pictures, mp3s, and other nice little things].

September 1, Saturday
Labour Day Special show!
Choose Your Own Adventure, Ganto Barn, Atom Bomb Mother
Live at the Evergreen Irish Pub
White Horse Pike and Evergreen St.
21 and over 🙁
FREE! 🙂 Music starts at 10:00

I haven’t even told the band about this yet so it’s up in the air! Go to the show anyway!


Well, the Evergreen Irish Pub show did not go exactly according to plan, but it rocked in a whole other way – much more fiercely than was expected. Special thanks to Atom Bomb Mother and their bass player for providing the living room (tee hee!) in which we played.

Also, just about anybody who wants to come to Joe Kogut’s party on the 15th and see us (or any of the other bands) is welcome. Other bands playing are Orpheus, Drive Thru Pharmacy, and The Cherry Tarts. The show is in Audubon, NJ.

“the address is the big yellow house on the 200 block of west graisbury ave in audubon with all the people in the back. i think it’s 248. or 254. i don’t remember which. ”
– Lou DiDomenico of DTP

We’ve got a message board up and running, so go check it out.

I’ll link it on the navigation panel in a few days, so until then just go there from the main page (i.e. this page – click on the words “message board”).

Nothing else new, just the coming show on Saturday. Be there!

Demos / Practice Recordings:




Band: Hey Dino, why didn’t you update the website?
Me: Ugh… I’m sick. Call me later.
Band: Hey Dino, why aren’t you updating our website?
Me: … well, I uh, I’m kinda busy now.
Band: Hey Dino, update the fucking website or you’re out of the band.
Me: 🙁 *sigh*

So anyway, I’m sorry. Big news ahead!

First of all, we cut a demo. Three songs, and a super secret song which we will probably put up on or something. It sounds awesome. We’re selling it for $1, methinks… maybe $2.

Also, we have to change our name. There already is a Choose Your Own Adventure, and they’re in our area. Oh well. Good luck, Other Choose Your Own Adventure. E-mail us with suggestions! Or to ask us about playing a show, for that matter!

Lastly, we’re playing (yet another) backyard show this coming saturday, the 12th, at Summer Smith’s house in BALTIMORE?!?! That’s right, Baltimore. Can you say road trip? We can.
