The Wayback Machine to 1992 – “HUGE”

Posted in Announcements, music on January 8, 2008 by G Lopez


Way back when, long before there was a place called Git-Mo and I was just a boy and not a prisoner there was an obscure pop-punk/pre-emo/neo-garage-psych band called Huge who played around New York City from 1991-1993. Well thanks to someone’s new VHS/DVD recorder, Huge lives on into the new digital decade. Some of you were just pups when there was a lonesome acting student name Gregg Lopez (then using the waspy actor-name “Sutton”) prowling the east village drunk on infatuation and Olde English 800.
So here we have two clips, one synced to our demo (like a real video) and the other the raw live sound. this was only their second gig and there was no sound in the singer’s monitor and thus the vocals are badly off pitch. Oh well.



2 More Big Newses until the end of the year.

Great. Just Great. Here I am locked up in a secret prison until God knows when and wouldn’t you know it, two more brand new topical sketch omnibuses are going to be staged in a Hollywood Blvd. improv theater. This is one of the main things that suck about being locked up in gitmo, missing Big News. Every show is different, so if you miss one you FUCKING MISS IT MAN! I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to curse.  It’s all the torture I endure on a daily basis and also the general lack of hope.

New Mixes of “C The City” and “Brain Thieves”

Posted in Announcements on December 21, 2007 by G Lopez

If you downloaded either of those two songs before Dec 21, delete them, and download the new versions on reverbnation.

“C The City” is about being one step from homelessness, holding onto the last simple creature comforts of home and the fleeting vision of the dream that did you in.

“Brain Thieves” is from last year’s Soundsville! show, but was cut from the performances.

These songs offer the barest comfort from the despair of being locked inside a human zoo.

Going To The Black Site

Posted in Announcements on August 24, 2007 by G Lopez

Certain words and snippits of conversations going around have given me the impression that the people in my cage (including me) are all being transfered to something called a “Black Site.” Call me a Nervous Nellie, but I just don’t like the ring of it.

I’m Coming Back, I Swear

Posted in Announcements on August 23, 2007 by G Lopez

Here in the military prison in Guantanamo Bay we have a saying, or question rather: “How’s that working out for you?” The inference being that “it” clearly is not working out and that you are in fact delusional. Like suppose you announce to your cage-mates, “I finally spoke to an attorney,” the smart alec in the cage catty-corner to yours, who knows as do we all, that all hope is gone, will most likely ask rhetorically and with a smarmy inflection, “How’s that working out for you?” Emphasis on the word “out.”

Such was the case whenever I mentioned starting the first blog from Camp X-Ray, and darn it, wouldn’t you know, my disregarded and disparaged.

Well in a way they were right. The loneliness and despair of being locked up indefinitely for a crime I did not commit
