Goodness now I mean you know I mean and I can it's quite relate to this like I I've broken my ankles a combined five times but it's not because I go hard on stage I'm just a clumsy idiot. It's a belief that you don't know I I five times three on one side to on the other side and a couple of them were kinda sports injuries when I was younger in the other probably three times were drinking injuries obelisk putting it back.

What did you do with all the downtown. I hated it but I did. I don't like sitting still and it's definitely board that to have been armed. So actors that depression or how hard. We started writing music I like it very him wait is that after the press you were off while lapping at the same time right. But yet it would be ill we thought during that recovery. Are we kid. Write the music and it took a couple mutt we had to get through the work that it. Therefore be it really again by. You know let it gave let that new perspective. To write a new album probably can do it it would not only. Build your perspective that we are alike of retired too bad that that was up the road and and how much we should appreciate. You know while B get cute bit. Would also like the alien came at the end. Then there's so much other bad headline showing up of the court the 2017 that. I feel like.

Right that it gave you guys just tuning in right now on the phone with us Maggie and they're going to be joining us once again down a canal side her focal 2018. Speaking of the new album and new music let's do one of the new ones off the new record right now is what's called glad I tried it's on all buffalo 10771 of force and one of 2.5 HD two. It is altered about low end up on the phone with Oscar public when he T featured artist Matt thank him. Ballot right there off the new record glad I tried I I gotta say I've been saying this every time I play this on it that it contains my favorite lyric of 2018 so far like the 92 dream team I actually a while back who came up with that worded it come from. Love outlive. How did that come up I mean we are not in. I need a third the word that he had big bird and a bit picky and with others ring. But that also really made that joke that liars the produce search that was the three of a get together with like the dream. Yeah. And then I did I you know I have those eight memory from being a little kid and battle it that would. Wouldn't it deeper it starts with the papers are me. It exactly you know the funny thing has an a in my memory the dream team when I was a kid of my parents would take me to McDonald's and they had the 92 dream team they they had their faces on the cups. And I want to collect all their cops that was my goal was to get all the 92 dream team cops and then when that layer came in in the song I had flashbacks of getting like magic Johnson and Michael Jordan cups from McDonald's so that's for some reason that's what that's on reminds me up now self so they got there is association. You remember if you ever got them all I never did I net they're the one I remember when I was missing was Patrick Ewing and never got the Patrick Ewing cop so they're got the. Godaddy Laettner has eight Patrick yearly in green ninety Adrian came up pretty panic at that. Ray get thicker up all the. There you go I would love to complete the collection at odds mediocre couple tickets are available online at altered a buffalo dot com so. Of course as I get rated talk to you guys up do my research out there I the on the interwebs in the wondered as Wikipedia and I didn't realize this as I stumbled upon at that. You guys have been doing this for fourteen years now I that that kind of blew my mind that's like. I don't think you guys have been having been around that that long and you know when you guys first start this off did did you. I mean obviously you want to do a long time did you think you would reach you know your teenage years as a traveling into whirring and recording musicians. Oh not another chance pirate those wondering how ugly can get them like that we still get the due. Date but I. I never thought we'd take the minute you never in the cards but. I mean that's that big a lot of people don't know we did it because they won't until around 2010. But until around eight years ago that it became a little about the craft it was so underground played people statement that Lindsey Graham and our beat is that we are chose them. But that that we thought it would only be an it would strip in around 2009. And when. The grand album came out with daylight Google fashion nightmare and button Clarendon. Terri changed their beat. You you know what is the what are the biggest things that. Looking back on that time when you guys you know when that didn't really break through like back in 20092010. Till now. That I think in the world really is social media. You know back when you know that started you know you really I mean EL MySpace was a thing but like you know it's it's a really a 24 sevenths cycle now with. You know NC Graham and Twitter and snapped happen all that. How has ever we got to change your guys grabbing you guys are out they're doing it all the time I see things on Twitter. You know you guys or is posts and videos there's tours of your apartment you guys are really embrace that side of things how important is it to yet to be. Acted out there on social media and how is that changed what you guys do. Well I I they hypnotic went at it that bird name that corporate name Matt Kemp like we want it beyond earth main date that.
