New Tunes

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2005

A lot of things are under development here at The Bosch World HQ.

First of all, you can hear a sneak preview of rough mixes from the latest recording session at the new Bosch page on MySpace. Teenage Symphony, Come on Phillie and Tell the Doctor are there for your aural enjoyment.

“Uncle Steve,” Steve O’Rourke, who did a great job producing these recordings, sat in with the boys at their last Luna Lounge show for three songs. Additionally, The Bosch is glad to have Uncle Steve’s band, The Shroud of Lowell, playing with them at Lit Lounge next Thursday, Mar. 10. The Bosch are on at 10:45, but come early for the Shroud of Lowell at 10 pm.

Until then, keep watching the skies.

Take the Bosch heads bowling

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

Josiah A. Pseudonym here, just coming to consciousness after one hell of a night with our favorite boys from Brooklyn. I decided to take my brand-new Aston Martin Vanquish for a proper test-drive, so I set about dropping the hammer and tooling my way down the Jersey Shore to see the Bosch boys play at the Asbury Lanes. I brought along my flavor of the week Paulina for warmth and comfort, her creamy curves almost indiscernible against my custom sharkskin interior. I was following the boys down from a safe distance, not wanting them to see my new wheels…better they be in the dark, in order to keep their drool off my hot British import for at least a coupla weeks. Paulina and I pressed on after the boys pulled into the Cheesequake rest area for some highly processed starches and otherwise condiment-laden junk food.

When we arrived down at the Lanes, I have to admit, I was a little spooked by the ghost town atmosphere. Given, a beach town in January probably won’t be the world’s most crowded place, but I tucked the Derringer in my waist holster and made Paulina carry a switchblade in her garter belt just in case. The only clue to the hipness of the indoor scene was a pretty hot lookin’ Galaxie-500 in the lot. Once we stepped through the doors, we found ourselves in a Rockabilly oasis the likes of which I’ve never seen. Hot ladies in modified bee-hives, sexy tattoos, and cool cats, all smiles everywhere. They’d set up a pretty ample stage area crossing about two full lanes in the middle of the bowling alley, and the DJ was spinning swingin’ twang, old-school r&b and punk right from the get-go.

We sauntered over to bar to imbibe for a bit before the Bosch boys arrived. I wasn’t quite loosed up enough to part with my alligator boots and start bowling… I’d need a few more highballs poured full for that part of the evening.

In The Bosch boys came, wide eyed and thrilled at this virtual paradise. The boys were totally jazzed by the generosity of the other acts- specifically- Gary and Brian from The Mofos and Miranda from The Hunchback graciously lending crucial instruments that our Brooklyn men couldn’t quite fit in the Taurus they were loaned by Matt’s long-limbed lady, Ms. Adrienne.

After a tight and smoking set, The Bosch boys enjoyed a bit of ten pins themselves, met some of the fine and friendly denizens, and got an interview in one of the local papers with Ms. Tara.

I gotta split now, Paulina’s just popped a bottle of Cristal in the hot tub……

New Year, New News

Happy New Year from The Bosch!

New Year, New Music
2005 is shaping up to be an even bigger year than 2004 for our boys. The Bosch are currently working on recording some new tracks for a release sometime this year. See some photos from the recording sessions and stay tuned to the site for the latest news about the upcoming release and downloads of tracks.

New Year, New Gigs
The first Bosch show of the year was at Lit Lounge, a new venue for the band. Next week, the Bosch will play New Jersey for the first time (appropriate since half the band grew up in Garden State). Better yet, the show will be in a bowling alley. Come down to Asbury Lanes on Jan. 29 for Bosch and bowling.

On February 19, The Bosch will play at Luna Lounge on Ludlow St. in the Lower East Side once more before Luna closes at the end of the month. Unfortunately, Luna Lounge will close at the end of February. The Post reports: Lights Out for Luna.

New Year, New Site
We’ve got a bit more style here at The Bosch web site. We’ve also got some more advanced technical doowhatsis so that you can keep track of the latest Bosch news and info. You can subscribe to RSS feeds and get Bosch gigs automatically added in iCal or a similar calendar. Snazzy, eh?

Eight tracks, no filler

Wednesday, December 15th, 2004

Josiah A. Pseudonym here bringing you the latest Bosch news from here in arctic Brooklyn.

First up, check out this review at Lollipop magazine, which says the following nice things about Havin’ Fun Soundin’ Good:

“This disc is eight tracks, no filler. Look at it as a nice, concise take where Dick Dale, Boss Martians, Violent Femmes, Dirty Looks, Pylon, and Little Steven’s Underground Garage say “hi.” Perfect recording, coulda used a couple covers to push it over a half hour, but hey, they didn’t need my advice to make a good one.”

In January, the Bosch boys will be leaving Brooklyn in a quest to record their next disc. I’ll give you the details as soon as I have them, but the boys are hard at work rehearsing the new songs for the new album. They hit the studio in mid-January. Watch this space for news about the disc and info from the sessions…

Also in January, the boys will be bringing the new tunes (and your favorite Bosch classics) to some new venues, Lit Lounge in the East Village and the Asbury Lanes in exotic Asbury Park, NJ. For details, see the gigs page.

Until then, this is Josiah A. Pseudonym reporting live.

Latest Update

Wednesday, November 17th, 2004

Hi kids, Josiah A. Pseudonym here. I’ve been stockpiling ibuprofen and cheap vodka while the Bosch boys have been hard at work, so excuse me if I’m a little disoriented, especially since I just left the dark expanse of Brett Beyer’s custom darkroom and music studio in a neighborhood of Brooklyn so hip, he’s the only man who knows it exists.  Brett’s been cutting a few station IDs for radio stations, and I came over to listen to ‘em.  Pretty fun stuff.  Which of course brings up the obvious – The Bosch is on your radio, boys and girls – 250+ radio stations and growing across the US and Canada. These are all great radio stations that actually play all kinds of interesting independent music, so listen up and don’t forget to call or email and request more of the Bosch sound on the airwaves.

What else?  The Bosch has managed to put together something special this Saturday 11/20… Back to the playboy Mr. Beyer for a moment… Brett was an organizer of a series of loft parties called “Colossus” that took place over the summer, the last of which The Bosch rocked.  Now Brett’s been able to bring the party to the Trash Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and The Bosch has put together a whole night of entertainment.  The night starts off with the chainsaw-wielding freaks White Limo at 9, metalhead maniacs from upstate who promise to chainsaw a turkey on stage (cooked? we sure hope so) if they ain’t arrested first.  During WL’s set, there’s gonna be an OPEN BAR.  Then it’s Federale, with their fun, straight-up Southern chicken-fried-steak gibsons-and-crotches rock ‘n roll, grrrrr!  Then The Bosch.  Then the night winds up with Walk Humongous, who at their recent Luna Lounge appearance with The Bosch managed to antagonize their loyal crowd so much that the stage was covered in exploded raw egg, corn beef hash, and the blood of the crazy front man Max.  So wear your drinkin’ shoes this Saturday and for God’s sake, stand back!

Speaking of that last Luna Lounge show, these snapshots I took might give you an idea of the scope of the rocking… or something…

Matt and Brett

Andrew and Holt

I hear that the boys are hard at work on some fresh new tunes there in the Bosch’s subterranean lair and will be rolling a couple out for the Trash show.

I’m hard at work updating the web site with some new tasty digital bits. In addition to the radio page, you can download some new MP3′s, which were recorded at the last Trash show by official friend of The Bosch, Steve O’Rourke.

Already, the band is brewing up big plans for the new year. All I can tell you know is that they involve a secret, undisclosed location, bowling, and copious amounts of sake.

The Bosch says: Boo!

Saturday, October 23rd, 2004

Josiah Pseudonym here, trying to stuff myself into this polyester pirate costume.  Guess I hit the buffet a little too hard on my recent junket to Las Vegas.  Ah well!  My alligator suit keeps me looking sharp the rest of the time, and if I look a little large when I say “Shiver me timbers” that’s just too bad for the ladies, they will have to come to know my more… subtle charms.

Oh, I almost forgot why I’m writing this.  That rock band I do stuff for!  Right!  Well, first off, those folks over at Tinderbox Music have really pulled it together for The Bosch boys.  The Bosch tunes are being spun on over 100 radio stations!  My goodness.  The radio page is almost ready with the new stations, it’ll list all the stations they’re being played on, plus it’ll have request line numbers and web site links and all that jazz.

Be sure to check out The Bosch at their FREE HALLOWEEN SHOW at Luna Lounge in Manhattan’s Lower East Side this Saturday, October 30.  The Bosch are on at 9:30, while their maniacal friends, Walk Humongous, are on at 8:30.  WH and The Bosch have rocked out at loft parties and Trash together, and this one promises to be a special night of Halloween-tinged craziness.  So make no other plans for that night, you don’t need ‘em!

What else?  Oh, besides being available for download on iTunes and other online sources, 3WK radio has reached out to The Bosch and is now offering “Metronome” on its online radio service.  3WK is definitely worth checking out.

And they’ve also been featured in Lollipop’s most recent MP3 CD sampler, free with the Sept/Oct issue, out now.  Lollipop is a rad music and culture mag that covers genres from indie to hardcore. 

And ladies and gents, keep the entries to the tattoo contest coming.  Reminder: the winner gets prizes!!!

With that, I must go back to getting these pants and eyepatch on… It’s going to be a long night for us all!

Yrs,

Josiah A. Pseudonym   

Exciting News

Sunday, September 12th, 2004

Josiah Pseudonym, Manager Extraordinaire of The Bosch, here to relate some exciting news…

Big-Ups
First off, I’d like to say thanks to the big crowd at Luna Lounge last night here in NYC – you guys were rowdy as ever, which I certainly appreciamate, and y’all gave The Bosch one of their biggest draws yet at the Lounge. Woot! I hope you agree with me that the Bosch boys delivered, with a particularly ferocious cover of the timely classic Clampdown, as well as with their sweaty rock standards. Also hope yez can catch ‘em on Thursday the 23rd, when they play at the MEANY Fest show at the basement of CB’s Lounge. It’s $8, true, but you see 7 other bands… and the louder you cheer, the closer The Bosch get to the cover of Guitar World Magazine…

Sessy!
Second, check out the new entries in the SEXY TATTOO CONTEST. As in real life: Vote early ‘n vote often!Sexxxxy

The Big Time?…
I’m also very pleased to announce that The Bosch is now working with Tinderbox Music on a North American radio push for the Fall. You can look forward to hearing The Bosch’s Havin’ Fun, Soundin’ Good on college, NPR, and independent radio stations throughout Canada and the U.S.A. I’ll be showin’ The Bosch’s infiltration of rock radio on this here web site, and I’ll also be puttin’ up the phone numbers and email addresses of radio stations spinning The Bosch so that, if you’re nearby one of said stations, you get the DJ on the horn and request Bosch staples like “Metronome” or “1776.”So pretty excitin’ stuff around here, eh?… Me, I got to go sleep off a rough night of wilding after the Bosch set, I’ll be back soon…

Yrs,
Josiah A. Pseudonym

What’s New

Tuesday, August 10th, 2004

Williamsburg, Brooklyn — Hiya boys ‘n girls. Ol’ Josiah Pseudonym, manager for The Bosch, here once again to tell ya what’s new with the boys.

Tattoo Contest is Wrappin’ Up!
I’ve been lucky enough to take a peek at the responses to the tattoo contest. Hoo-wee! Some of ‘em really get my ticker going. You’ll have a few more chances to get in your picture — just email us a picture, or give us one in person, of your sexy self wearing a temporary Bosch tattoo. Remember! — The winner wins a bottle of the premium liquor of their choice, or a gift certificate to Toys in Babeland (mmmzz sexee!).

Shows Shows Shows
Many thanks to the super-inebriated crew at Trash last Wednesday, you all were super-rowdy, which The Bosch always adores. In case you missed it, The Bosch have instituted the policy of throwing out free goody bags to the first dozen or so fans at each show, and the bags include candy, amongst other things…

The Bosch have been invited up to play a show September 4th in Woodstock NY. The door is $10 – but The Bosch can get you in for $5! And a carpool is being put together from NYC to the show – so if you want in on the discount or the ride, email Matt!

And still more shows after that… a return to the swell Luna Lounge in September, plus some other things that are too far off to announce at this point…

More later… I’ve got some MAJOR things cookin’ for The Bosch boys, but it’s just a little too soon to announce anything, and you never know, heaven’s hand is a fickle one, so it could all collapse like a house-a-cards. So I gotta stay mum for now. But stay tuned!

Stay clean, stay mean!

Yrs,

– Josiah A. Pseudonym
