Just wanted to let everyone know that we  have 
decide to do 2 more shows. Here's the schedule
August 17th at 9:00 && September 21st at 11:00 
Both are at Dos with a $6 cover.  21+.

Jim is moving in late September  so  that will 
be all she wrote for a long while.

Wow!  The show on Saturday was a huge success.  
I heard from a lot of  people it was  the best 
show we had played yet.  All three  bands were 
rad and  well  received.  Hoggle's Jewelry put 
on a high energy show that was way better than 
Weezer. Trace Fury rivaled the best Philly has 
to offer.  The crowd was  a  lot of fun and by 
far on of the best we've played for. Thanks to 
you all for comming.  

So everyone now knows that  Jim is leaving the 
band in September. It was questionable what we 
were  going to  do  as  a band until then  and 
beyond.  Much of it  depended on  how Saturday 
went. We have decided to keep playing as Mono-
Lyth, so there will be more to come.  However, 
after September it may be a  little at a time, 
but we will still exist.

But what   about  the  time  between  now  and 
September?  We have decided a  few things.  We 
are going  to keep  practicing with Jim.  Or I 
should  say Jim is  going to  continue to play 
with us until he leaves for Arizona.  

We have also decided, because Saturday went so 
well, to try and do a few  more  shows.  We're 
not pulling a  Ramone's on you, we just didn't 
know  whether we  wanted to  play any  more so 
close to Jim leaving.  So we're in the process 
of finding a few  more shows  and will let you 
know as soon as they come around.  

So keep checking your mail  and the site.  Get 
the  word  out, tell  your  friends  and  your 
brothers and sisters that they should come and 
see the  process as  we  evolve  into the next 
stage of MonoLyth.

The  show  at Rockers  was  pretty  cool. The 
sound over there is  good, so  it  helped  us 
sound  better.  Plus  the enthusiasm of those 
of you who  showed  made a  difference in our  
performance  as well, so  thanks  a  lot  for 
coming.  We  introduced a  new song  entitled 
Shadows and Puppets  that  was well received.  
Of course we'll be playing this at our upcom-
ing shows.  
We're  trying  to  get some cd's made to hand 
out at our next few shows. They're the studio 
versions of Uplifting Design, Closure of Arms, 
Abstract Engines and Stolen Joy that we  just 
finished recording a  few weeks ago. 
We made a few additions to the  Web Site. All 
the lyrics to our  songs are up there so  you 
can check  them out and see what we're saying 
up there.  Soon to come,  as soon  as  Spirit  
has  the time  to do it, explanations to  the 
song lyrics will be  up  there also.  So  not 
only will you know what's  being  said you'll 
know what we're talking about and where we're 
coming from.

MonoLyth is currently working on their second
studio recording.  This short album will con-
tain Stolen Joy,  Uplifting  Design, Abstract
Engines and Closure of Arms. The final tracks
are being laid next  week and  the album will 
be mastered shortly there after.  We're  get-
ting it  pressed  ourselves, so we don't know 
how long until  we have the  completed  album 
with with the jacket and  all.  We'll let you 
know as soon as that is available.

Well...  It is official. We are never playing 
the Pontiac Grille again. And we suggest that  
nobody  books a show there.  Out of the  four 
times we have played there they  have screwed  
up  our  time slot three  times  and  totally  
screwed us and the other bands.  That Kirsten  
has  no business  booking for  anyplace   and 
should  be  dragged out  in  the  street  and 
flogged. How stupid do you have to be to book 
five bands on a Thursday  night,  first  band 
going on at about 10:15? That's a bright idea.  
We were told originally  that there  would be  
three bands  and we  would be going on second 
around 11:00.  We get to the "club" and  they 
tell  us we're playing  fourth of five.  What 
the Fu@k!!! Then the third band shows up late 
so the Pontiac gives us their slot  and screw 
them. I hate  this  place. Actually, everyone
else there was all right. Kirsten is an idiot 
and the door guy was a dick,  but that's  his 
job.  Must be hard to work in that place with 
those  who  do  show  up  usually  ending  up
getting pissed off at them. All that frustra-
tion and we didn't even get paid.  Assholes.
Thanks to those who showed up at the Pontiac. 
Sorry we all got raped by the Kirsten.  
I know this has bad grammar and spelling, but 
it was written in an  angry state. (Kentucky)

We have taken down our download pg because of
technical difficulties with the ftp server we
use.  We're working with the administrator to
get this problem fixed and  will let you know
when you can access the page.
We have a few more shows coming up so  take a
look at the schedule. If you've looked at the
schedule and  are wondering whether  to go to
the Pontiac or Doc Watson's,  we would rather 
that you  went  to  Doc Watson's for  our own
personal  reasons  (concerning the  fact that 
the staff at the Pontiac  Grille  are a bunch 
of... nevermind)

We  want to  thank  everyone  for  coming  on 
Friday  night. It was a huge success. We gave 
away 15  cd's and had a lot of fun. There was 
a great  turnout of  around 50  people, those 
who didn't come missed out.
We would also  like  to thank Ed and Doc's of 
course, who have  invited us back in the near 
Thanks to  Ry for  coming  all  the  way from 
California to see us.  
Thanks to Troublsome  Blue for  playing  with 
us (not like that).  They also put  on a good 
show and are from Merchantville also,so check
them out if you get a chance. 
See ya at the next show.

We  have another  show scheduled so check out  
our upcoming shows page.  It's at the Pontiac 
Grille on South St. in Philadelphia.  
We are currently experimenting with recording 
and hopefully we  will have  a cd  with a few 
songs on it to give away at our shows.  
Have a good holiday and we'll see you in 2001.

The download section of our site is now up so
check that out. There  are downloads from our
old demo recorded back in  1999 that  some of  
you may  already have copies of.  Then  there 
are some live recordingsof our practices. One
of each song that we have at the moment.  The 
recordings  are  of  pretty good  quality and 
will at least give  you an idea of  the sound 
we have developed.
Also we have our  FIRST SHOW scheduled  since
we reformed.  It will be  a Doc.  Watson's in 
Philadelphia  on  January 5th. We  go  on  at 
10:30.  It's a Friday so it'll be a good time 
to get your drink on.

MonoLyth is glad  to  formally  announce  its  
return.  We are  active with a new member and 
without an old one.  Jim will replace  George 
playing the  Stick  Bass and  will be  adding 
new  sounds and ideas to the group.
We have completed  some new songs  and exper-
imenting with sounds. We have also been turn-
ing our practice room into a recording studio, 
so hopefully we will have some  more cds  for 
you soon.
Although we  are not  ready to play live yet, 
we will be shortly.  Join the mailing list to 
be updated on new  MonoLyth information about 
available  downloads  on  the  site, upcoming 
shows and new recordings.
