The Rugs turn 4!

When I was digging through our archives I found a disc of The Rugs first Demo. It was marked November 12, 2005. This is The Rugs first demo with the original line up of Matthew Darkly, Eric Schuchmann, and Jimi Schuchmann.  We used this demo to  initially get  people interested in working on an album project.

Anyways, this means The Rugs have now turned 4!

The Manhattan Project… deep from the archive

I’ve been digging deep in the archive and I found something almost no one has heard… WARNING THERE MIGHT BE A REASON WHY!!!

Eric wrote:

My first band The Manhattan Project set out to record an album in the summer of 2002.  It was the day after I graduated high school, we loaded up the van and went to Kirksville, MO. Although we had previously spent months recording in our basement (which is how I began this journey) this was the first time any of us had been in a recording studio.

We stayed there a week practicing everyday above a dive bar called The Aquadome and recorded every night at this studio in the back of a music store. It was one of the best weeks I’ve ever had, although after the album was recorded the band split up. We realized we all wanted to do different things musically and we were attending different colleges in MO.  As a result we never released the album.

The Manhattan Project was:

Ringo Keener – Vocals

Jeremy Rootz – Guitar

Jimi Schuchmann – Drums

Andrew Wagner – Bass Guitar

Eric Schuchmann – Guitar

Mp3: So It Goes

This second track is possibly the first home recording I ever did. It’s also the Manhattan Project, I used a combination of Mini disc recorders, and computers to make a multi-track recording rig and then edited them together in Vegas.  This probably took me a month or two to finish…

MP3: Rain In Rome

The Rugs – unreleased live audio and video

Back on January 31 2008 The Rugs played at The Patton Alley Pub in Springfield, MO for a birthday bash. We knew it was gonna be a heck of a show so we rolled audio tape to capture the event. Royalwood Video Productions filmed the set as well. You can find the video on our Vimeo page.

We’re very happy with the way the show turned out. We had a blast celebrating our birthdays and playing for our friends. These songs don’t appear on either Rugs record.
