Mechanookie Episode Three up today!

Mechanookie Episode 3 will be up and running today at noon. Please take a listen--I'm very proud of this one, it has a lot of crying in it. It's a crying tour de force. Robot Girl reveals HER secret, the Magician tries to hire a new hovercraft, Mechanor throws a party, and Robot Girl has an unwelcome family reunion. Plus--School Girl sings! And, most importantly: CAT FIGHT. You can listen here:


And also on the Mechanookie bandcamp page, where you can also hear past episodes if you've missed any:

Ray news

I don't know how many of you already know about this, but Ray, our guitar player, suffered a bicycle accident the day after our Spacellite show and broke his collarbone in 3 places. He's ok apart from that, which we're thankful for, but a broken collarbone is not exactly a walk in the park.

One upshot of this is that Ray is going to be unable to play guitar for a couple of months. This means that, apart from next month's live performance of the radio play, we're not going to be playing any Monolators shows until he gets better.

Tom Bogdon has graciously agreed to step in for the Mechanookie live performance at the Hudson Theater on April 14. Tom, as many of you may remember, played lead guitar in the Monolators from the Our Tears Have Wings through Don't Dance eras, and fronts his own band, the most excellent Shirley Rolls. While we're really sorry that Ray can't play the Mechanookie show with us, we're happy that Tom will join us to play another show!

I hope to see you all at the Hudson next month...and please send Ray your best wishes, I hope he gets better soon.

Mechanookie Episode Two coming up on Thursday March 15

Thanks to everyone who listened to episode one--and if you haven't had a chance to listen yet, please do, all past episodes will remain accessible on the mechanookie.com audio player and for listening/downloading on the show's bandcamp page.


Episode Two, featuring the arrival of School Girl, Handsome Paul the Hologram, and a new song sung by The Conscience will go up on Thursday March 15 at noon. Tell your friends!
