The Failure

by And And And

And And And is a band with five equal members. We don't have delusions of grandeur. We formed in 2009 after we all separately ended up in Portland, OR at the same time. Our catalogue includes Rockers, Burners, and Sleepers. We've been called Pacific Northwest angst-rock and have been sonically compared to Pavement, and early Modest Mouse. That's not wrong, but neither of those bands are direct influences of ours. Maybe that's good though. If one sounds just like the folks that influence one, one may become bored. Or possibly one might bore others, which is less troubling than being bored oneself.

Bim Ditson drew the cover 'art' and got all the tapes dubbed while I was flipping out under pressure. -Nathan Baumgartner

We tried our best to be good boys. We even set up a positive reinforcement system involving treats, compliments, and pats on the back, but we still found ourselves inebriated in the mold basement. That's right! The We Shared Milk and And And And have finally teamed up and are having a great time! You are probably saying to yourself "yeah, I saw those guys play shows together and they were all too drunk to play. Big deal". In that case you would be correct. We were too drunk to play and it is a big deal. To celebrate our western world tour we combined our powers and made a new song to share. Jonathan recorded and mixed it in the mold basement. It is tentatively titled Muscle Stuff and it is really long and has tons of guitar, keyboards, cello, harmonies, two drumkits,and other cool stuff. We wrote, arranged, rehearsed, and recorded most of it over a weekend in late February. Your mom might like parts of it. Your dad will like parts of it (he will definitely love one part (see if you can find it)). They will generally disapprove of other parts. Hope y'all enjoy some of it.
