three songs wich will appear on a very limited split with Rep
Seki. I believe there are rough mix mp3s floating around.

guess it was never mentioned, but Ben Traub is our new drummer.

the way, the new ep is out.

a few open dates.

for cheap in Germany, let us know. We will treat it good. Actually,
never mind, just get us tickets to Euro-disney.

I will most

Lots of new
photos soon, I took down the ones from tour because they are a
bit too big. look for more of that stuff soon.
Story So far...
28th...We roll into Columbus with nothing to lose and find out
no one is at the show. Not a good start, but we a good place to
stay and some fun in the desereted college area of town.
actually saw a pirate.
29th...New Brunswick, NJ.
For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to borrow more
amps from another band tonight. Not that good of an idea. The
show was a little rough since it was our first show with Alex
playing drums, and we were way too loud
Good show. Yet another house show. Good sound, good food, good
music store. BAM!
31st...New Brunswick, NJ.
Back again in the home state of Jon Bon Jovi. A good, fun show,
but still no love for the two lonely hearts...namely, me and Alex.
1st...Long Island, NY
An interesting show. Probably the most hardcore show we have played
so far. Kid Gorgeous (ex Buried Alive) played, kids bought their
stuff and were a little confuse by us I think, but who cares...we
saw BRUCE and Adam and Jeremy and it was all worth while.
Probably the best show yet. An incredible amount of fun playing
for kids who actually came to see us. I am now hiding in a room
away from the 20 people staying in this tiny college apartment.
Well, not exactly, we actually hit a pretty bad snow storm and
holed up in a motel for the night. ON TO CLEVELAND!
New Year from New York! More pictures soon. They are something.
are working out quite nicely with Alex, our new drummer, but we
still need a van for tour, so if you want drive us or lend us
your van, please email us. Just come with us, it will be fun.
R G E N T ! !
We are in
dire need of someone with a running van to be our roadie/driver
on our tour. It appears that Phil will not be coming with us,
and Alex (formerly of Subsist) will be filling in on drums. This
means we have no transportation. Please email email@example.com
if you are our man.
We now have
the LP version of our new record. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
to order. They are eight dollars postage paid.
was a BLAST! Hooray for event planning.
dates have been posted. We're heading to New York and back. If
you live in our path, come to the show and buy our new record.
CdTe and MnTe
each have distinct band gap energies around 1.5eV and 3.3eV respectively.
The "band gap" is the energy level at which an electron
in this material needs to be moved into a higher orbit, or energy
state. For radiation with energy values less than this band gap
energy, the material will simply transmit this radiation, and
act as a transparent substance. For energies above this level,
the energy from the radiation will go to moving electrons into
higher energy levels, and the material will appear to be opaque,
since radiation of this energy is not transmitted. It is possible
however to combine ratios of CdTe and MnTe into CdxMn1-xTe such
that a whole range of intermediate band gap energies exist. These
new materials can have any band gap energy between 1.5 eV and
If you came
to the show in Muncie last night, thank you. I think we were all
sick. I know I was.
New site launched
The LP is
at the plant and should be here soon. We are the slowest thing
in the world right now, I apologize. The CD is being finished
up now, but the release date for that is still a mystery.
The record is almost done. If you live in the USA, it will be
available on compact disc from One Day Savior Records and a one
sided LP from Alone Records. There will also European versions
of the records released through Crucificados (Germany) and Heroine
(Italy) as split seven inches with louise cyphre and the apoplexy
We are also
planning to tour Europe next summer. We will more than likely
tour a little in the US before we leave.
Well, we played a show this past Friday. It went very well. Much
fun. If you got one of those comps that Kurt put out, and you
don't want it, then give it to me because we gave them all away
and I don't have one.
Recording went well. We have yet to mix and add vocals. It is
going to kill you. It will be released as a CD-ep on One Day Savior
Recordings and more than likely someone else will put out the
We practiced last week and it went surprisingly well. We will
be recording this weekend. We have some songs.
Woo hoo. Two weeks and we will have a new record recorded. Does
anyone read this stuff?
for our new record include, but are not limited to :
: "9 months"
Mara'Akate : "We
put the iron in irony"
Mara'Akate : "Booty Call"
We are practicing and recording Maybe even playing another show.
Keep posted. We really want to sign to Capitol Records. I keep
emailing Thom Yorke and trying to get that GooglyMinotaur thing
to put him on, but it never happens. We are tenatively recording
on May 18th. We are nothing if not ironic.
We have practiced a few more times. We remembered the songs. Hopefully
now we can record them. Colin and Phil and our friend Zach are
in a new band.
We practiced last Saturday in Muncie. It went pretty well. We
wrote a new song. All Plans are still tenative.
2-3-02 : Please
do not order anything from Brian anymore. Most everything is spoken
for. If you really really need something, email email@example.com.
No new news really, once again there are rumors of us getting
back together. Colin and I have been talking about releasing a
split of really boring instrumental stuff they have been doing.
I am going to visit Clint and Phil tomorrow. Hurrah.
Merry Christmas. I just updated the merch page. Just RaceBannon
splits and "3-7-77" Records left now. Get 'em while
their hot. Here is my new address, I moved:
6713 Gateshead Lane 1B
Indianapolis, IN 46220
my website, it is at www.brianwyrick.com. The Romance Morgue is
going out on tour again, www.romancemorgue.com for details. I
talked to Phil. He is a new band called Don't Shoot...I'm with
God. I don't know what Josh and Colin are doing, but Clint is
moving to Switzerland.
Oh, by the way, we have Race Bannon splits now. Please order them
from me. They are 4 dollars. Do not complain. They were 3 dollars
to make. Send me five bucks and I will send you that and some
other goodies. One dollar for postage. You know the drill.
5727 Ralston Ave.
Indianapolis, IN 46220
Keeping the dream alive. The Romance Morgue is going on tour in
November. Go see them. The Racebannon splits are being shipped
as I type. Buy one from us so we can pay off our debts please.
Send me money now and I will send it to you the day I get them.
Send me five bucks and I will send you a copy of the record and
a bunch of stickers and pencils. I know it sounds steep, but they
were costly to make, eh?

An update, just in case anyone comes to this site ever. The Fable
split is now out of print. Just so you know. Also, word on the
street is that Phil may have come around and we may be recording
the last stuff we wrote soon. Derek is going to college now, Colin
and Josh are still in college, no one knows what has happened
to Phil, we think he might be one of the drummers in Slipknot
now, Clint is going to Law school or something, Brian is still
working at Papa John's and playing in the Romance Morgue with
Antonio from Usurp, Chris from Race Bannon, Jeremy from Upheaval,
Billy from Khmer Rouge and Sam. I, the other Brian, am currently
unemplyed save a day at a comic book store, and am residing in
Indianapolis in the home of the stars.
I went to the Locust show. I am happy that I will never again
have to go to another show that we were supposed to play. Still
no word from Phil about recording. If you are mad that we broke
up or want to hear our last stuff, please call Phil. His phone
number is 219-246-0971. Just leave a message after the robot talks.
Please email Josh if you want to order anything. firstname.lastname@example.org
We are done. Sorry. We're just another one of those lame bands
that breaks up right when things are getting good. Check back
I guess to see if we ever record our last / best songs.
Woo hoo. We are back allready. Big surprise. One of us had a death
in the family, so we returned home after our awesome Columbus
show with Oblongota. Those kids are awesome. Go to skylab and
bid on all our merch. We are selling huge lots of it. We're pretty
We are going
to try to play this wednesday with Race Bannon, Helen of Troy,
and I Am the Resurection in Bloomington at Mike Dixon's house
and then do some recording the next day. We will probably put
that stuff out on OneDaySavior, and hopefully play what will more
than likely be our last show June 21st with the Locust.
Leaving for "tour" later today. Updated list with venues
and stuff. Sorry we had to bail on all the good shows. We will
have limited edition tour mini-cdrs featuring our stuff from our
upcoming split with Racebannon as well as some unreleased stuff.
We have new shirts, buttons, and an ungodly amount of pencils.
page = updated again; only this time the tour info is updated
with some dates confirmed. We still want gold dollars.
Shows page = updated. If you come see us on tour, please help
us get some booty by bringing us your gold dollars. We have a
treasure chest to fill.
There are some interviews of us available in a few zines these
days. They can all be accesseced online. An interview from Circvs
Fest 2000 is at Silver
Star Zine. There is an interview we did over aol instant messenger
just recently at Fine Print
Magazine. If you are really desperate for some Mara'Akate
reading, you can read the interview Josh and Brian did with Kurt
Morris at the 1999 Circvs in the archives of Action
We just played
our first show with our new line - up Saturday at Josh and Brian's
house with Waifle, Pg. 99, Anabel Lee, and the Suteck Conspiracy.
It went really well. Thanks for coming if you did, and if you
didn't we will be playing again on the 23rd at the Volcano Room
has recorded for our split, so hopefully we will be getting that
taken care of soon. We are trying to write for the cd right now,
hopefully we can get that done before tour. We have posted our
tenative tour schedule on the shows page, so if you can help us
out please email us.
We have some
new members now. Brian Allen is playing bass now, and Derek Black
is our "extra dude." We have been practicing as much
as possible, teaching them the old songs we still like and trying
to write new ones for the upcoming cd/10" on OneDaySavior.
Here's a review
from HeartattaCk issue #28 of the "3-7-77" 7" (Redwood
of that Hoosier Hell's Gate style blood-raw screamo you've come
to expect outta Usurp Synapse or Racebannon and all their friends.
Mara'akate raise the bar a bit with a mess of cleanly-assembled,
really adventurous sound collages that hold the tracks together
and make me wonder what this band will be doing with a year or
two more's worth of maturity and ingenue under their studded white
vegan belts. Excellent clean recording, but it's all over too
