dispatch from a presumed ghost

Jake and I have spent the last month and a half finishing writing and working on our first release. It does seem that while on the same continent, this blog as our primary means of communication ceases to hold relevance to our collaboration. Sorry to neglect those of you who were following. We can promise that any neglect was for the greater good. We have but a bit more tracking to do (live strings, horns, and some drums and vocals) before we can uncloak the real Maniac jams.
It may come as a disappointment to some, and a relief to others, that covering Taylor Swift songs has also paled in comparison to playing our own freshness, so please do check back here for updates on the real Maniac, knowing that we will be neglecting covers in favor of originals for months to come. If you've not downloaded the covers, and you want to own them, get them now. They well may vanish.
More from me and Jake very soon.

  1. I'll be honest. The picture, which I mistook for a link to aforementioned new song (excited, can't wait!), both disappointed me when I realised it wasn't a link, and confused me, when I failed to see any other relevance to the post.

  2. Strings and horns? Sweet. Keep working and we'll keep (trying) to be patient.

    Nice pumpkin btw. And Happy (belated) Halloween!

  7. Aha! I knew when I opened my computer this morning I would see a Maniac post smiling at me. (And no I dont follow so it was intuition.) As the depths of your dissapearance is cleared though none could not guess. Pleased, is the word.

    My friend had drawn the symbol on a peice of paper inwhich I asked "Maniac?" He had no idea what I was talking about which is well now because he is a two-faced midget.

    I feel like an anouncer.

    P.S. My other friend said the only way you sang Miley cover was cuz u were stoned. (Told you I'd tell them Mandy)
