note 3/15/06: many thanks to all of you who came out to support GV for the cd release party at Bottom of the Hill on October 1st, not to mention the raucous final show at Hotel Utah! (for those inquiring, fyi, stock of the last GV tshirts have long since been depleted.)

note 3/10/05: we're heading back into the studio this weekend to hammer out some new tunes for the next album. hard to believe a full year has gone by since our first recording efforts last march. so, we're getting serious now, and we truly hope to have the album ready to release come summertime.

(hopefully soon, that is, almost back) yes, like you, we would like some new and improved links and photos and fun stuff.... alas the pace of life has wound up faster of late, but it looks like there's a break ahead. ahoy!

note 5/9/04: we were very excited to begin working on a new album in march this year, recording at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco. this round we are going to take our sweet ol' time, recording whenever we feel the need and see how things develop. more updates to come.
