Wow... again with the no updates! First of all, I hope everyone had a good holiday and stuff... well, we went to Europe, with Shout Out Out Out Out, and managed to squeeze in a quick set at BarFly in London. Good Times! Also, it was announced yesterday that Shout Out Out Out Out was nominated for a Juno Award... so kudos to them (us!!). No plans for shows right now, but hopefully we'll have something on the go soon.

......................................

12/04/06/ Posted by G.

Ok, so I know it's short notice, but we've just confirmed a show on Dec. 15th with The Beautiful Unknown from Toronto. I know it's christmas season and all, but it would mean a lot to us if you came out and saw us play... hell, if you come out to the show, you don't have to buy us any presents. deal? deal.

......................................

11/26/06/ Posted by G.

Holy no updates batman!! Ok, so Shout Out Out Out Out has been out on two tours since the last update. They both went really great. Whitey may have a show coming up in december (on the 15th), so more on that as I get the info... other than that, not much is new... whoooo!

......................................

09/07/06/ Posted by G.

I've got a couple of the videos up now... check em out here.

09/05/06/ Posted by G.

Thanks to all that came out and saw the show on the 1st. We've got some new photos up now (special thanks to Christy Dean of the Walking Wounded Collective... amazing) and some video (!!! thanks to snarf's mom Penny) on the way as soon as I'm finished splitting the massive file. Check back over the next few days and you'll be able to download pretty much the entire show. That's pretty much it for us for a little while any way. We leave for tour with Shout Out Out Out Out in a week. Look out for us in our new van! We're coming to a city near you. Take care everyone!

08/22/06/ Posted by G.

wow. it's been an insanely long time since we've updated this thing. there are a couple of damn good reasons why. first of all, our domain (whiteyhouston.com) lapsed or something and now it's in limbo. second of all, we've both been really busy doing other cool things. lyle has got a wet secrets record in the can now, and the shout out out out out record is finally in stores! I've been busy hustling drums for mothers music. talk about a dream job for a drummer... any way, now that we're back up and running here on "the biz" you'll be seeing more updates and maybe a few changes... I'll see if I can find some photos from a show or two that we played too... COME SEE US ON THE 1ST OF SEPTEMBER!

I had a few people already ask me what the 'bonkers' pedal I used at the last show in Calgary was. And the answer, of course, is the Dr. Scientist FRAZZ DAZZLER. It is a truly insane concoction of pure fuzz madness with one of the biggest gain stages I've ever heard on a pedal. Plus a handy built in gate that breaks up just the way Whitey likes it. Anyway, I'm pleased to announce a small partnership with the Dr. Scientist braintrust. They will have a website up shortly for you're viewing/listening pleasure.

Where did the fall go? Man, it seems like just yesterday we were heading out on the road with The Illuminati. Since then we've played 39 shows, covering just about every major center in the country! It's most definately time for a breather. Also, thanks to everyone that came out to the Priestess shows... and if you didn't, go see them while you have the chance.

Hey! So Big Daddy calls me up and says "Why don't you throw that tour banner up on the site there dude" and I said "Screw you jerk". But then I thought about the free jeans and jean jackets we'll be hudled under to keep warm while traversing the Great Lakes and I recanted. We are whores and proud of it!

The Exclaim / Levi's Four for Fall dates are up. Seems like we unpacked our suitcases (garbage bags) just yesterday and already we're set to head out again. If this next tour is anything like the last it will be more fun than my tiny human brain can contain. On that note, the following people are officially bitchin': Carol, Krista, Ian, Katie, Hot Crotch Cernew and Craig, PJ and all the kind folks who let us sully their personal living spaces.

Our good chum The Chinball Wizard, formerly Trevor Anderson, recently completed a short film called Rugburn, which features I Got Fucked By Liberty Mutual as credit music. Trevor and his giant brain came up with the idea of arranging and recording the song with a string quartet. Here are three short 'hold music' versions of Liberty Mutual as done by Edmonton's own String Beans Quartet, arranged by Scott Zubot. [1] [2] [3]

So I was watching Yojimbo, putting a BBQ together in my living room and it finally dawned on me what was weird about Toronto. There was dog shit all over the sidewalk! We recently checked out some fine sidewalks in both Saskatoon and Calgary and they were surprisingly dogshit free. There are some really nice folk in Toronto though, like Rina, The Lone Gandhi and Chris Frampton who took some fine rock photographs of our T.O. experience. Now in photos section

.....................................
06/25/05 Posted by G.

I've posted up a new show! should be a good one....... bring your boards! first one to teach me how to do a kickflip gets a cd ;)

Just getting off the plane from the increasingly moist, unbearably hot Toronto. Our friend Pavel was kind enough to shoot a bit of the show and ensuing kookery. You know things are getting a little out of hand when 'electrical tape moustaches' seems like a funny idea. I also had about ten brawny lesbains acost/molest my hat...

On the way in to T.O., Wolfskin passed Anne McClellan in the Airport. She looked at our gear and said "Alberta needs more musicians", to which he replies "Musician's need more money!"

06/05/05 Posted by G.

Here's a link to the stolen gear list: vertical struts/fake cops stolen gear
.....................................
05/25/05 Posted by W.
Seems like I hear of this shit every week now, but I'm sad to say our good friends The Vertical Struts and The Fake Cops had ALL of their gear, van and personal luggage stolen this weekend (May 22) in Vancouver. From the sounds of it, this wasn't the usual Gastown junkie smash n grab but was a professional hit... anyway, you should send them blankets, food provisions and expensive tube amplifiers.
.....................................
05/20/05 Posted by W.
Thanks everyone for coming out to the CD RELEASE rock off vs. Cmon. Thanks as well to The Mark Inside, a fine Toronto band for playing as well.
......................................
Some asshole stole 7&7is' gear a few weeks back.
Come out in January for the benefit show. Details TBA soon
......................................
Come out to Ruckus on December 19 for the ALL AGES Compilation release show..
Other than that, we will be taking some time off until the CD Release sometimeearly in the new year.
......................................
No updates for a while since we've been busy roaming the hinterland, not showing up for Shout Out rehearsals and trying to cap this fuckin' record.
We are also pleased as punch to finally officially announce in a smallish typeface our new allegiance with Rectangle Records.
......................................
Hey there good lookin'. Do yourself a favour and be in attendance for the two upcoming Whitey 7" release shows:
ALL AGES - August 14 th at the SHARK TANK with THE VERTICAL STRUTS, THE SKINNY and THE MARK BIRTLES PROJECT.

Attendance is mandatory....

and and and.. check the shows section as we've got shows all over the map up n' comin'
......................................
The 7' has arrived. Pick one up at a show, or, better yet, pop on over to LISTEN, BLACKBYRD, RUCKUS, MEGATUNES and/or FREECLOUD and git yerself a copy.
......................................
Test pressing of the 7" arrived today and has been approved. the 7" should be back in time for the MC5 show on the 3rd
......................................
The inaugural Whitey 7" is away... We're also doing a poker themed split 7" with The Corb Lund Band.
...................................
A few shows added, including MC5 & Ex-Boyfriends at New City. We are trying to get a 7" delivered for that day, which should also contain a few more extra special surprises.
...................................
We will be embarking on a cross Canada tour at the end of August with The ubiquitous Vertical Struts. Dates to follow.
...................................
Well, Well. It would seem that our fabled Start-Stop-Start album really will actually be made a reality. We've got 9 songs in the can here with another 5 in progess. Shouldn't be much longer. Having said that, we have decided to sink some money into a 7" or 10" limited pressing. Hooray for vinyl.
...................................
Hello all! Here is the new site. It's all new and improved.. come on in and check it out. No, don't worry about your shoes, you can leave them on!
