A while back, we suggested you try a bit of Absynth. Apparently some of you liked it: The Absynth Quintet reached their Feb. 1 goal of $2,000 ($2,056 to be precise), which means album#3 is officially fully funded!
What did the talented fivesome have to say about this monumental outpour of love and support?
"Thank You For Your Support! Especially readers of the North Coast Journal blog, who are clearly the best-looking, most smartest folks north of Ukiah! We are so happy to have made our goal – almost as happy as when we convinced all our wives and girlfriends to vote for us in High Times' Unsigned Band of the Month contest and emerged victorious as a result!
"We are going back into the studio this month after Tofu finishes on the cage fighting circuit (rah!) and Ryan returns from his "Roberts Released!" comedy tour to finish this album and should be done mastering very shortly after thanks to your help, several bottles of Mad Dog, our therapist and two professional mediators.
"And then we can send out your thank you gifts – kudos to the special gang who had the foresight to take us up on the leather chaps/thong set!
"From all of us here, thanks again – your help means more than just money to us! (It means we can all avoid real jobs for another three months!)
* Some of this was left unspoken in the band's original email message. But we, being sharp-eyed journalists, can read between the lines.
