Thanks to Joey for pointing out a recent shout out in the Improper Bostonian, in conjunction with Honeypump records (home of bands like
Nightrally). Random! Anyway heres how it stands in polskiland:
Its been a hectic fall, with some fun shows and happenings. And now the southern hemispheric aestivation is upon us.
MSO is heading to Lesotho with a solar powered miracle of thermodynamics, JGO will be showing up to work in his pajamas every day, and ELK is sitting out the season on the injured list after getting doored in central square.
But fear not, for even as winter melts to spring polski will be reborn with its newest, latest complication of tunes - the rough third album, its hour come round at last, slouches towards the beach house to be born...
Gobble Gobble! Polski boys had a good Thanksgiving, hope you did too. Last weeks show was a good time with the ROP crew as expected. Polski brought the fuel and ROP had the spark. The result was an explosion of sound ...and some fists. Although we would like to say we were on stage when it went down, we don't envy bass player Joe for taking one for the team and ending up on the floor. So come to our next show with birds on each hand for all the other audience members, and let them know just how much rawk we bring.
Great time at Mr. Silver's party. The Sweds and Dans were out in full force and it was nice to see friends dancing up a storm. We survived the string of b-days and are proud of polski's 3 year record. Speaking of records,we're seriously talking about the next one being recorded this spring. With some luck and dough we'll take some time during spring break to put a dent in the project (maybe even record in a remote location?). stay tuned...
Well our Taunton show has moved to november, hopefully Wilma wont destroy the town before then. Which leaves this weekend open for polski to celebrate some b-days. Not to mention we're almost at the offical 3 year mark of polski's first show. Took a swing by the old house of blues recently, it got a fresh coat of paint and looks like some restaurante is getting ready to open. Out with the blues, in with the food. On a side note, looks like some digerati has put polski on this thing called myspace
. Although we can't officialy condone this behavior, we can't stop you from adding us a friend.
The polski pad on charles street is reaching ever higher levels of refinement,
for those of you who want to make a visit - did we mention that we're all living together for
the first time ever? plus roadie joe is moving in - helang banna!
Thanks to the Regulars and Off White Noise and to all the folks who made it out to Jaques
this weekend. It was an experience as usual. We'll be playing
again this coming friday at EC, looking forward to another great time in the subsurface
(the Vadose zone anyone? anyone? bueller?).
Another 3rd place for the polski boys. It was nice to see friends and enjoy some pibbers. Mad props to all the bands, especially Casey Desmond
who moves on to the US finals [still can't believe the pyramid scheme, lol]. be looking for a show in boston proper soon...
Thanks to all who came out last night for the tts
show. Looks like we get to do it
all again tomorrow night at The Middle East downstairs
. Should be a good show, though we don't know how they plan on all those bands playing...so come out and grad some pibbers.
Things are heating up in Polskiland at the moment. For starters we have a bunch of shows lined up through october and beyond, check the shows page for updates. This weekend we kick it off
with a Hurricane Katrina Benefit Show at MIT followed Monday by the first round of the
Global Battle of the Bands, the ultimate prize of which is to spend 5 weeks in Sweden (which would make ELK real happy). So come on
out and cheer us on at TTs this monday, we'll really appreciate it. And hey, for
the first time in History we're all under 1 roof here in Cambridge, so afterwards you can drop by
for some pibbers and we'll show you our super high tech ventless washer-dryer combo. Love,
The Polski Boys
Things are looking good for polski's upcoming album. ELK has procured new things to hit and JGO
has sold his fiscally responsible sole for new tech gear. All that is left is for MSO's back to heal and maybe
get a new git. We've got some MIT gigs on the books and are looking for more venues to play...check back.
Thanks to all who made it last night! Good times rocking the All Asia. HK Regulars brought
their game even with a sky diving incident that day. Corey belted out his stuff and came up big with some CD's.
And the pestilence reigned and got rained on. With any luck there will be a Bogarts gig in the near future.
Get your summer polski fix this friday at All Asia
with MIT's very own Hong Kong Regulars
at 10pm, followed by the Polski Boys (thats us) and then
our pal Corey Heaslip
and then rumor has it the night will end with a reign of pestilence
, so bring your black leather umbrella.
Thanks to BM
we uncovered a secret
of Luddite from
. Also, online sales have been HOT lately. Better
pick up your copy before we have to get a new box from storage.
So what exactly has been going on in polskiland lately? For those in the know, its been a hectic time. For more info, ask ELK about his new bionic arm. Give it up for Darth Vader on drums everyone! Now it behooves us to begin mentioning,
already at this early date, that the time is coming soon when a new polski FIAT album will be created. Yes folks, we are craftily plotting a 3rd album, the likes of which you might hear at some of our upcoming shows. We're playing AllAsia july 22nd, and another MIT gig at the end of August. Come listen to us play and watch us drink beer afterwards. We're sure to be entertaining one way or another. 6/18/05

ELK updates his autobiography, titled: "My Life is Cooler than Yours, and thats why you're reading this book" with a new chapter: "I Don't Know how to Act."
The New York Times hails it as a colossal, unifying work of contemporary post-determinism, and Amazon.com has ordered several reprintings...

Happy New Year! There will be an abundance of interesting events coming up soon. First, we have loads of CDs for all you good boys and girls in Polskiland. how can you get your hands on one? We are offering them online at CD Baby, we will sell them at gigs, and we might just give you one if you track us down and ask us sweetly.

some kind of CD release shindig. Probably on home turf in cambridge, possibly with custom beverages...
