What’s up tumblrers? How about that new Jake Bellows record?
Hello morningwine. Somebody was supposed to be manning this space but the post has been abandoned hence the second most belated response of my life to date.
Thanks for the message. I’m stoked you liked our stuff.
Broken Buttons started in 2005 when I learned how to write songs as opposed to writing what I thought a song should be. From there it was a rotating cast of occasionally like-minded musicians. We played live and recorded mostly four track cassettes which we’d give away at gigs we’d play or attend.
The later days consisted of attempting to record and release an LP trilogy charting idealism through to acceptance; intended as a sort of incomplete guide to adulthood and death which was hindered by various obstacles and ultimately didn’t happen.
Today it’s pretty much a one man show, undergoing a shift in focus and a little renovation probably including a name change. I’m hoping to get something out this year.
Are you still making music?
