The 7/11 Notekillers/Book of Common Gestures show at Tritone has been cancelled

sorry....we'll see all you Philly peeps sooooon...


NEW SINGLE IS FINALLY HERE...!!!

Below is the link to our first brand new official studio recordings in approx. 25,000 years "Airport" + "Ants". You can D/L them (that's right - we're giving 'em away...) in two different flavors - in the ever-popular mp3 format if you just wanna keep 'em on your computer or as (much bigger!) cd-quality wav files if you're looking to burn them to disk (or if you just want better sounding files on your computer...). You can also D/L the cover art & CD label in the same location.



Download Airport + Ants

Back From South by...

We had a blast at all three shows, and had our usual million laughs about things going back 40 years or less. Oh, and I suspect the audiences enjoyed what we did also. Made some new friends/contacts, caught up with a couple of old ones, had some good meals - what more is there?

Pictures & sound files coming soon...

NK's Jam of the Week (or Every Few Months or So) VI (12/15/05)

**Go Play Outside vol.1 (complete concert)**

Playing a little catch-up here...a little holiday gift courtesy of our self-promotion department. This perf was recorded at Murph's Other Bar in York, PA this past summer. Been selling it at gigs as a home brewed CDR release, but what the hell...

Anyway, tracks #1, 10, 12 are short bits of overheard ambience-crowd feedback-our pantented hilarious notekiller banter. If you have software (ex. Jam) that allows you to set zero length pauses and you want to simulate the experience of *BEING THERE*, then, by all means grab them along w/everything else. Otherwise, if you're using itunes or somesuch to burn to a cd or playback, then, well, you can probably live w/o 'em.

On the other hand, if you just wanna sample the live nk sound, might we recommend tracks #4, 5, 13, & um, maybe #3, 9, &...

So...here's the links:

01) Opening Benediction
02) Braindance
03) Motorcycle Song
04) Punk Song
05) Airport
06) Rebuttal
07) Ricochet
08) Happy Endings
09) Jumper
10) Marked on a Curve
11) Run Don't Stop
12) Imparting Critical Info
13) Papers


thanks to Pedro & Seth

NOTEKILLERS @ Sin-╚ (Oct 23rd, 10pm)

Every time we see the Notekillers' name these days we're reminded of that moment in Return of the Jedi when one of the bad guys says to one of the good guys, "Behold the power of this fully functional Death Star!" -TIME OUT NY

Last chance (for a while...) to bathe in the NK's jumble of rock & roll girders, screaming free-jazz, pre-school funk, avant sub-atomics & wise-guy whirling shamanism - breaking to record some new stuff. Come get a preview of what the new thing's gonna feel like...
