Photo by Flickr user jpdefillippo138Word late this afternoon about Thorns of Life breaking up and Blake Schwarzenbach playing a show last night with a band called ‘forgetters’ (no the, and no capital f). It’s only fitting I post about this as I’ve tried to keep up on Thorns of Life since last November when they burst onto the internet with a couple unannounced living room shows in Brooklyn. There was an announced recording session with J. Robins which didn’t go so hot. And there were rumors of an album coming out called Legislators and Prophets, but that never happened. And there were rumors that Cometbus had left the band.
There are now rumors that the drummer in forgetters is ex-Against Me! drummer Kevin Mahon, who is not the ex-Against Me! drummer that everyone thinks of when they think of ex-Against Me! drummers.
No word yet on whether this blog will cover forgetters as breathlessly as we covered Thorns of Life.
