T-minus Band

A true D.I.Y. project that escapes typical labeling...



8-5-09 T-minus Band will be playing a show at Bottletree on Wednesday, August 12th with Walker Yancey and Secret Dangers. This show will feature our new line-up. We will also be playing a show on Thursday, August 27th at the Speakeasy with Vulture Whale. More details later.

12-20-08 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We've been reconfiguring the live band and plan to do some shows in the new year. Hope to see you then. The plan is also to finish a new record in 2009.

T-minus Band will be playing with Sunny So Brite at Rojo on Saturday, July 19th. Show starts around 8pm.

4-7-08 T-minus Band will be playing at the Raindrop Festival at Bottletree on Saturday, April 26th. The time slot we'll be playing hasn't been announced yet but there'll be plenty of other great bands so it'll be fun to go and hang out all day. It's for a good cause too! Find out more here.

12-31-07 Happy New Year!

T-minus Band will be playing a show opening for Sunny So Brite at Rojo on Saturday, January 12th. Admission is free and show starts around 8pm.

Recording is coming along and it looks like 2 different albums are being recorded at the same time. One seems along the lines of the Technostalgia album and the other is radically different from any other T-minus Band recordings.

Unless something special comes up T-minus Band won't be playing any shows for a while as work has begun on a new album. Stay tuned for updates on that.

T-minus Band is proud to have a song linked from Neil Young's website. He has a section called Living With War Today and there are over 2000 protest songs linked there. One of them is "Waves of Grain" by T-minus Band. You can hear the track by clicking here. Listening to the song from his site will make the song's ranking go up so by all means: click here!

For any of you gamers out there perhaps you remember the game Team Fortress. There has been a remake of the game called Fortress Forever and one of the developers it turns out is a T-minus Band fan. The result? A map set in Italy with flyers for an upcoming T-minus Band show at our favorite venue, Rojo. The show's date on the flyer is October 27 because of the song "Longing for October". Click on the picture to the right to see the image full-sized. And if you are a Team Fortress fan go download the game, it's free (you must have Half-Life 2 to play).

Show at Rojo

T-minus Band will be playing at Rojo on Thursday, August 16th at 8:30 pm. This show will be free/all-ages and we will be playing one set only.

6-17-07 Show June 28 at BottleTree Cafe

This show was originally planned to be a Rojo but will now be taking place at BottleTree Cafe. T-minus Band will be opening for Voxtrot and Palomar. Show starts at 9pm.

6-16-07 The song "The Morning After" has been included on Magnet Magazine's New Music Sampler Vol. #46. If you are a Magnet subscriber look for it in the June issue.

5-25-07 T-minus Band to play at the Sharrif Simmons Fundraiser June 2, 2007 at WorkPlay
500 23rd Street South, Birmingham, 35233
Cost : $10.00

5-7-07 While this site is due for an overhaul I don't have the time or talent to do such a thing. So I've done the next best thing by giving it a facelift.

We had such a good time playing at Rojo that we're doing it again on Thursday, May 17th at 8pm. Once again the show will be free and all-ages.

3-13-07 T-minus Band will be playing at
Rojo on Thursday, March 29th at 8pm. This show will be different from the shows of the past as we'll be eschewing the loud rock format for something along the lines of an early 90's episode of MTV's "Unplugged" (remember how they weren't really unplugged?). This show will not, however, be like an episode of VH1's "Storytellers" from any time period. We're also likely to include a song or two from our latest album The Morning After which is available here at this website as well as Rojo. You can add any of the T-minus Band CD's and t-shirts to your tab at Rojo on the night of the show, or anytime you might have a tab open there. Also, it might be worth noting that admission to this show is free and all-ages.

WBHM's Tapestry program will feature T-minus Band this Thursday, February 1st at 6:30 P.M. and the show will replay on Saturday at 11:30 A.M. Their website also archives the shows for your listening convenience. I would like to take this opportunity to commend Tapestry for exposing local music to our local airwaves because in these parts, that is rare. Another group trying to change that is Fried Green Radio and you might want to check out what they are doing here and here. You might even hear some T-minus Band.

Also, The Morning After got its first review from local website in case you are interested.

12-12-06 The new album, The Morning After is now available through this website or if you are in Birmingham you can purchase it at Rojo. We aren't having a CD release party but plan on a very special show in late February. More on that later. If you want to hear some of the new material it can be found here or here.
