Two New Show Announcements! Watch for Pledge Music updates soon:

Here are a couple of shows that we are excited about. Topher & Patrick both have dogs that were adopted from Stray Rescue, so doing this benefit show is a no-brainer for us. It really is a great cause, so come make this event special. The organization fought and won for the money promised them by our governor. However, it will take some time still for them to receive it. So, they need our help. If you have ever been there, they are always overwhelmed there, it seems.



Click HERE for event details.

Midwest Avengers is headlining their first show at Pop's. Plus, it is Friday the 13th, so it is gonna be killer. We are kicking off the show. Be sure to get a hold of the member you know for tickets, we will have them available online shortly too, see the event link below for more information.

The happenings of late...

We've been busy and have slacked on the blog slightly. I will pick up where we left off. If you were at the Lemmon's show on 9/2 you can view the pictures that Ricky Sherman took of us HERE. We got to hang out with our friend Typewriter Tim and he performed his body-bag routine and even jumped in on our instrumental with some additional percussion. We also celebrated Ryan's 21st birthday too. Then we played inside the Fox Hole at Atomic Cowboy on 9/24 for the first annual Rock U Fest. That was a blast! HERE are pictures from the event from a couple of different photographers. We also had the set filmed by Suburban Pro Studios, so we will have footage from that later on. This past weekend we played at Lemmon's again on 10/01 and also celebrated Topher and Viner's birthdays. It was fun.

Our next show that we have scheduled is at the Crack Fox on Friday, November 4th. We will be performing with The Orbz and also Dog Of Panic from Springfield, Illinois. A fourth band may be added, but these are all confirmed. To RSVP to the event on facebook and check out the artists and the venue, click HERE. If you missed the STL Music Press interview w/ Topher, he talked about Rock U Fest and more on the group itself and what is happening and also talked about the new recording. You can read that right HERE. In addition to the five new songs and instrumental, we also performed at UMSL's Touhill Performing Art's Center recently. We plan to take the audio tracks from a song that we have not recorded yet and make a live version of it. We may even throw in an electronic version of one of our acoustic songs too. We are on the tail end of recording now. We hope to have it ready by the end of the year. Thanks for the interest and stay sharp...

Set List for Saturday, June 25th @ The Crack Fox and more!

Ockum's Razor & Still Line both performing extended sets on Saturday, June 25th at the Crack Fox in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. We are really excited to be doing a longer set at an intimate and particularly interesting venue. Here is our facebook event, if you care to RSVP, you may do so HERE. Our set list for the evening is as follows: "Nothing's What It Used To Be", "Teach Me How To Learn", "Nebula", "The White Horse And It's Rider", "Smooth As Eggs - Instrumental", "Manimal", "Jig Of The Juggernaut", "The Great Big Wheel", "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" - Tears For Fears (cover), "The Question", "Chaperone", "Mea Culpa", "Secret Of The Way Things Are", "Walk Away", "Every Growing Moment", "Space Odditty" - David Bowie (cover). *Note that some of these songs have electronic introductions and the acoustic songs that you are used to hearing are re-worked into mostly upbeat versions of the songs to fit the full-band/electric format. Our two covers that we are playing are pretty different versions of the songs also. Not to mention, some of these have never been played live before. Heck, it has been six years since "Every Growing Moment" was played live, I think. "The White Horse And It's Rider" is a brand new addition and this will be it's debut, the recorded version of the song is scheduled to have a guest vocal appearance by Butch Tocco of Iron Fist Dillusion. So, stay sharp for that and maybe a live performance of it too? Here are some live tracks from our last show at Pop's, we are getting ready to start working on the video footage from the show and we will start recording some new material after this show at the Crack Fox. We had to post-pone the initial production due to a couple of the member's vacations, but this is in stone and we will start production on Sunday, July 3rd! The first of many, many new songs that we have never recorded before. Fri. May 20th @ Pop's for Sicfaist CD Release Show by therazorsedge
