Shout out to everyone in Eugene who made the New Found Glory show a blast for us! Rumor has it our already enormous Ford Econoline van is gaining an extra 3 feet in height and will now be referred to as “the great white whale.” Will the Kelvis really be our roadie for tour this year? Web page updates include the posting of all of our lyrics plus a complete show history with flyers that date back to 1994!
My how things can change in a few days. Two days ago we were ready to give up on the tour now and now we only have 2 days off! Mad props to Dave for clocking serious hours on the phone. Currently the only gaps we have are Friday 8/31 anywhere in California, Arizona or New Mexico and Monday 9/3 anywhere between Denver and Chicago. Please e-mail us if you can help.
Damn, our tour dates are getting dropped faster than Jim’s pants at a NAMBLA meeting. Can anyone out there hook us up? Basement? Garage? Living Room? Anything? Don’t be afraid to e-mail us if you think you can help. Everyone claims to respect DIY booking but sometimes it really sucks.
We’ve added tons of new pictures to the 2001 Pictures page. Go look at them.
This was the best I’ve seen Octane play. It’s a wonder why they aren’t on one of the big punk labels. They’re just as good, if not better than most of those bands. My favorite songs have to be “Day Of The Dead” and their Misfits cover, “Astro Zombies.” What can I say? I’m a sucker for a great Misfits cover. I’m really looking forward to playing with them again.

The new and improved guestbook is operational. Please feel free to add to the stupidity yourself.
Huge show news … we are playing with A New Found Glory in Eugene on 8/16! Unfortunately this means we have to cancel our 8/23 show at the Animal Farm. Hopefully some of you Animal Farm regulars will come check us out at the Wow Hall!
The booking for our 2001 Tour is well underway. Our tentative schedule is down below … dates are being added daily. If you want us to play in your town on a date we don’t have listed please don’t be afraid to e-mail us!
I’ve eagerly awaited the chance to see 800 Octane again. These guys have been around for nearly a decade and they’ve toured all over the country, yet fame seems to elude them. It just goes to show that there’s no justice in the music business. How do candyass bands like Fenix TX and Good Charlotte receive so much hype, while excellent hard-hitting groups like 800 Octane wallow in relative obscurity?!? Damn it, I need to calm down
