Blindspot News from Hannah
Long time no updates! Well if ya haven't heard by now, Achilles and Jay are in a new band
called Grey Method. I have gotten permission to use
some Blindspot interviews that I found. So look for those shortly on the site.
Well it's official people, Blindspot has broken up...here is the letter from Jeff
The remaining members of BS have gone ahead and made it official. Blindspot
is no more. After 6 years of making music the founding members have decided
to move on. While some of us have decided to forego the professional music
scene, you will definitely still find a few BS members in other local
projects. Blindspot wishes to thank all of our fans for the love and
dedication they have shown us over the years. BS also wishes to thank our
label Tomatohead Records for the incredibly strong support we received. Last
but not least BS wishes to thank the underground media in all its forms.
Check out Blindspot on the new "Mail Order is STILL Fun!" comp put out by Asian Man Records.
The song hasn't been released any where else, it's "Middle Ground", a personal live favorite of mine.
Just a quick little bit of info here that you prolly don't care about. I was at Streetlight Records
in Santa Cruz today and for the first time saw Blindspot's 7" Maude in the record area. If you live in
the area and want to pick it up, it was being sold for $1.95 (used). They also had a copy of the original
pressing of Slow Gherkin's 7" Death Of A Salesman for the same price.
Wow! The Blindspot Page won an award! We won
Pain's Wonderful Beef Award!
I put up some new pictures from the Canopener show back in Feb. Go check them out!
Sorry this page has been so quiet lately, but there hasn't been anything new to report.
I must confess that I haven't heard from the band in a while now, so I don't know what's up
with their bass player/horn players issues. Your guess is as good as mine. When/if I get accurate
info I will post it ASAP. Thanks for your patience.
There's a new review up of "Acceleration Zero" thanks to Greg Middleton!
Some new (or should I say old?) sound clips have been added on the sounds page. Check them out.
Ryan Brady has quit the band, after only a few months in the line up.
As of right now, the band is once again looking for a bassist.
Well, with all this time being sick, I'm atleast having plenty of time to work on the page. Check out
the picture page for some new pics. There are more to come soon.
Urgh. I'm sorry it's been a while since an update. I've been very very sick for the past bit, and my phone lines were down all week,
plus there was no electricity to my house for some reason. So that's why there was a lack of updates. Sorry. Real Audio Clips are now up!
Along with the .wav audio clips, I am going to put up Real Audio. But I need your help deciding which
songs to put up. I will record and upload up to six songs off Acceleration Zero. So send in you votes by
e-mailing me. Thanks.
The band is currently working on writing some new songs. They hope to get these songs down pat
and hopefully fill in their horn section before
heading out on another tour. So stay tuned for when that will be.
Check out the links page for some new links. Be sure to support GFP! Sterba includes
loads of audio clips so go check out some bay area music!
Happy Valentine's Day!!! My gift to all of you are Blindspot soundfiles! I have recorded approx. 30sec
clips of each track of Acceleration Zero, go here to listen to them. Enjoy!
Fun Blindspot show last night in Menlo Park. Click here to read all about it.
Pictures from this show will be up as soon as I get them developed.
Blindspot has just returned home from their tour of the south-east. If you live in the bay area, check out the 3rd annual can-opener on Feb 12th. It boasts a superb line-up, and it's only $5!
Well Blindspot makes the first stop on their tour tonight in TX. Check out the
Message Board for a departure note from Jeff Underwood. Also- FYI this current tour is the last one that Achilles will
be playing, after this he's dropping outta the band to set things straight in life.
The news is this...there has been some shuffling in the line up, and now Josh Clem is playing guitar
and Blindspot has welcomed Ryan Brady to the band on bass. Be sure to say hello to him and welcome him
to the band!
First of all, happy new year! Second, as I sit here listening to "I want to believe" I'm reminded
that I must tell you something. Last night, 3 of Blindspot's members played their last show.
At this point, Jay, Jeff and Kim are departing from their many years with the band to set their lives
in order and not have to deal with the stress of touring. I wish the best of luck to these guys!
Blindspot is NOT playing on the 18th...I'm sorry to tell you. But it would seem that
the boys (and Sierra...hmm gotta remember that it's not all guys anymore!) are in the
recording studio tonight.
Blindspot show in Aneheim last night. Check out the review here--thanks to jeff Chung!
Exciting news!!! "Acceleration Zero" is going to be released in Japan!
Also- Ive been told that a new Blindspot 7" is coming in the near future!
One last thing- if you haven't yet looked at the picture page
now is a prime time to do so. I've gone through almost every single picture and
made them all really small file sizes so they load a million times faster. So no
excuses for not looking at them now...They load quickly with any speed modem.

I finished the discography page today. If anyone knows of any compilations
that Blindspot is on that I don't have listed, please
e-mail me and let me know! Thanks! Also, If anyone has any Blindspot pictures that
they would like featured on the site, let me know and we can work out a deal!
Yeah! The new webpage is up and functional! I've been working on the new design for the past
week, and I hope you guys all enjoy it. Feel free to leave a note in
the guestbook with your thoughts about this change. Achilles gave me a tid-bit
of information today about the Tomato Head Video Compilation that Blindspot is
going to be on. For more information, please check the
Tomato Head Records page. There have been some changes in the tour dates, so be sure and

songs that stand out to me are "Misfit", "Fenced" and "S.R. Sexin'"
Another Blindspot show! They played this time with The Readymen and Undercover S.K.A. Quiet a good show,
I was dissapointed by The Readymen though, they didn't have it all together tonight.
Hey! My first Blindspot concert! They played with Punch The Clown, JFC and Siren 6.
I was very impressed by these guys. What a great show they put on, and what a blast to dance to!
