One Last Hoorah!!!

WOW! What a year we've had. We touched both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts this year, put out a few releases, all in different formats, spread our sounds and expanded our friendships everywhere we went. We have one last show this year. It's going to be on New Year's Eve-Eve. December 30th at Betty's with Horsehair Everywhere, Wren Schofield and Voyager(from Minneapolis, Minnesota). Hope everyone can make it out and have a last one with us. We are planning so much for 2011. We guess we need to pack as much in before the world comes to an end in 2012. Well, if you believe in that shit. Fuck! Hahahaa!

We will be back Jacksonville!

We had a great time in Jacksonville, FL. Emily and Sterling were sooooo good to us. Underbelly is this little speakeasy and courtyard in the back of a boutique called Anomaly. Emily runs Anomaly and along with her friend Sterling they run Underbelly. It is a really fantastic space and they treated us very well. They asked us back and we will be going back for sure. Thanks you guys. It was wonderful.

Well, Chattanooga was a wash!

Marty and I are sitting in a Best Western outside Atlanta right now. We can honestly say the show in Chattanooga sucked! The local band never showed and we played really great, even a couple of new songs, to about 5 people who wandered in from the bar. It was like playing to all the local drunks at Springwater. Marty said we could have done that at home. Jeez! Jacksonville, we hope, will be a lot better. I guess we just need to be grateful we had show. Right?

Got us a fair review...

We got us a fair review by the guy that does Dusted Magazine's "Still Single". Here is the link and what Doug had to say: STILL SINGLE
Plodding Southern guitar/drums duo, going for some sort of big serious sound in a compact lineup – turns out this is what happened to Heathern Haints, who were also pretty interesting. Singer guy sounds like Michael Stipe, they get some big sounds and seem to will back slower music as it existed in the early ‘90s – maybe not Codeine or Idaho slow, but introspective in its volume and careful in its presentation. Definitely on the indie rock spectrum, and a fair release; this band sounds like they have the stuff to improve, and they can only do so as their confidence and skills ramp up. Nice looking record either way – yellow vinyl, two-colored silkscreen flat for the cover.
(Doug Mosurock)

You can get our 12" "Drum is Our Parent" in special YELLOW VINYL right here from us. Paypal payment of $12 anywhere in the world. Send payment to lateronwe[at]gmail[dot]com.

Everyone has been extremely nice and we've been treated like kings.

Records So Far.

Here are the records thus far. We've had a blast and been hanging out. We'll give a big recap when we get back to Nashville. Marty is trying to put together some sort of disguise for the show tomorrow in L.A. Not sure what to expect, but he wants to be sort of incognito. Whatever the fuck that means.

And here are us two miscreants outside Aquarius Records

Some Good News and Some Bad News

The Good News is. We got us a fabo review over at Agitated Atmosphere. This is what they had to say: Nashville duo Ttotals may not be of classic mold but their psychedelic and shoegaze influences permeate all 18 minutes of the band’s official debut, annimal skkulls. Release via Tennessee 3-inch specialists, Kimberly Dawn, the 4 songs that constitute annimal skkulls demonstrate the continued power of rock and roll. Granted, Ttotals rip asunder the old blueprint with a stoner cool and a punk aggression that any grizzled rock vet can appreciate but underneath the recognizable exterior lays a beast of an unidentifiable stripe. The lazy grind of “Portrait of a Man,” the sloppy grunge of “Take Care of Me,” and mathematical kraut of “Upon Some Action” are all comforting touchstones that also prove out as fantastical portals to territories left untouched by the history of rock; lands ready for the caress of Ttotals. You may have missed out on the album’s initial run but Ttotals promise a 12-inch vinyl release soon, so the opportunity to reacquaint yourself with your childhood punk (slightly skewed) is rapidly approaching. Prepare yourself before you’re run over by the Mack truck.

And now for the Bad news. Unfortunately Cloudland Canyon won't be joining us tomorrow night. They said their drummer had left them earlier this week and that they found a replacement, but have not worked up enough songs to be ready for the show on Saturday. So... We decided to ask a few friends to play with us. Square People and Cody Gaisser will be joining us tomorrow. Everybody come out and have fun and help us be merry pranksters.

It's Show Time

So smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Nice Review

We got us a sweet review via FOXY DIGITALIS and this is what they had to say:
Ttotals "Annimal Skkulls"
Kimberly Dawn

Ttotals are a duo from Nashville, TN. "Annimal Skkulls" is their debut release, and on it they play rock music, utilizing basic elements like guitars and drums to make their sound. Don't let that fool you, though, because all sorts of delayed vocals, feedback, and snippets of sampler swirl around the interior of their strum-n-chug. The band's penchant for rocking out while simultaneously sounding pleasantly dazed and distant reminds me at times of Sic Alps, while their sense of cathartic release calls to mind bands like the Feelies or Polvo.

The disc blazes to life with "Take Care of Me", as a quick skirl of feedback is annihilated by drummer Marty's raucous kick-in. The band settles into a determined, swinging stomp behind soaring, THC-drenched vocals. A quick slowdown follows--both "String of Life" and "Portrait of ao Man" are spacious, murky, and shambolic, the delayed voice of singer Brian hovering over each song's trundling rhythms and wobbly guitars--enabling Ttotals to demonstrate their skill with slower material. Disc closer "Upon Some Action" brushes up against the edges of krautrock as it rolls off into the sunset, sounding like a meeting in the desert between Neu! and the Meat Puppets.

"Annimal Skkulls" is a tightly-woven debut, a warm analog broth of good songs and good playing. Another good release for a good label--see if you can find a copy before it goes away.
8/10 -- Mike Griffin (19 May, 2010)

To bad they are all gone, but we have some good news on the horizon. This here little beauty will be available very soon as a 12". We just gotta get her into URP. We are expecting to have it out in time for our west coast tour in August. Which we must say that almost all the dates are in. We also have a couple of shows right around the corner. Saturday May 29th with Cloudland Canyon and 84001 at Betty's. Then on Thursday June 3 with 84001 and Pimlo at Little Hamilton. Both shows should not be missed.
