Hi Fred,

Didn't know you were part of Trenchmouth. Great band.

I was wondering if you ever played with a friend of mine, Tiffany Randol, and or her old ban Valese?
I used to go see here/them at New Yrok Underbelly.

Carrie and Fred,
Good Luck with Portlandia!

Huge fan of Thunderant. Guessing you'll hit on this, but I've been curious ever since seeing that work—how did you all meet and start working together?
