As the snow falls through the geodesic dome and covers our rock gardens here at Missile Command Headquarters; as Jim throws another graphite rod into the atomic furnace; as Dawn and Lori finish decking the labs with boughs of holly; as I shut down our music supercomputer, Holycrapimhuge 5000, I reflect on what a year we've had at Missile Command.
Six concerts, including two out of town. One of them at the prestigious Convergence 14 in Tampa, Florida!
Playing with many awesome bands, and cementing a friendship with them!
Finishing and self-publishing our debut CD, "MACHINES SHOULD THINK PEOPLE SHOULD WORK", and actually selling a lot of them!
Begin work on our next CD, "The Future".
Meeting and performing to all our fans and friends.
Truly, a 2008 that is worth remembering.
Thank you to everyone. We couldn't have done it without your support. In thanks, we've added a new free song on our website. Head on over to http://www.missile-command.net, click on the rocket, and go to "MEDIA". Under "COVERS", you'll find our freshly mixed cover of "It's A Sin" by the Pet Shop Boys. Download it and rock out to it in thanks for helping make 2008 the Missile Command Year of the Year. There's also a great rare treat in the cover we did of "In The Air Tonight" by Phil Collins. We only played it once live, but it's way cool.
We've also added a remix of a song from our MACHINES SHOULD THINK PEOPLE SHOULD WORK album. Click under remixes and download the "M31" mix of "Andromeda 8" remixed by Dr. Peter Naegele.
While you're on our site, stop in our STORE and do some shopping. I think we only have one square pin left, and I'm not sure if we can get more made (our manufacturing wing's square pin generator is down), but we have CDs, t-shirts, and stickers galore. Missile Command schwag makes the perfect holiday gift for that special scientist/time traveller/astronaut/physics buff/loved one in your life, so pick some up for them!
Hope to see you all in 2009!
Andrew, Jim, Lori, and Dawn
