The Story Of How We Got To Now (And Then). For Now.
Current mood: accomplished


Hi all,

Well, things pretty much couldn't have changed more from what we thought we were getting into, when we sat down together a bunch of months ago. We were just gonna see if we could play the stuff at all, if it was still fun, maybe play a few shows for anyone that still cared. From that came the weird idea for a fake band name called Hot Little Pony (a whole other story). From THAT came recording the cover of Pony at Shaun's place, just to have a song for our fake band's MySpace page. We passed it around to a couple of friends for fun, and then...

Honestly, we really don't understand what's happened since. We're all sort of catching up, but we know it involves a whole bunch of people hearing our music that never had before, and we know it happened by happy accident, which all feels good. More importantly, the shows since have been fun, and we're getting to know each other in this way again. So, in the middle of Jonah's solo stuff, Shaun's recording sessions, Chris's law firm, and Johnny's rockin' Two Sheds, we're also writing a bunch of stuff that's feeling interesting. Early favorite song titles: 'The Ghost That Kept On Haunting', 'Give Me A Reason', 'Dear Enemy'. Overall, got about a dozen tunes done, we'll be recording them at Shaun's over the next several weeks.

On that subject, perhaps some of you have heard via the internets that we're putting out a record with the venerable Vagrant Records. True and good. If everything keeps going as it has (meaning well and quickly), that will be out for early summer. Also comin up, look out for a 7" (vinyl!) of Pony, backed by an unreleased acoustic version, recorded during an on-air performance for Live 105 in San Francisco. It'll be released in the UK real soon. And of course, you can get Pony now on iTunes too. Beyond that, there's other music for download at http://thebandfar.com along with CDs, t-shirts, etc.

We've got some shows around the west over the next couple months. San Diego and Santa Barbara (with Kings Of Leon!) in May, then Portland, Seattle, Chico and Reno in June. Should be a fun bunch, with more to come.

As we're all catching up to this thing a bit, pardon us while our real site is a little slow being built. Please leave any ideas that you'd like to see tried, we want to hear from you. Also, anyone that has gathered stuff over the years (show dates, photos, videos, anything interesting), let us know. We'd like to make the site a home for that, among other things. We're working on having the site be the main place, but there are other ways that can be fun too: This place, Twitter, Facebook, you know the drill. Find us somewhere, we'll always check it personally and respond as much as we can.

We still have no idea where all this will go, but we like where we find ourselves: playing and making songs together, with nothing to prove and nothing to lose, still curious about what this thing called Far is.

Thanks for listening, then and now.

Jonah De Far

ps - We're gonna start taking turns saying hi, so look forward to regular updates from all of us. Good fun.

there is a reason for genius [16 Jan 2009|09:39am]
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

The family side of Christmas is so nice, but so draining. The stress it can cause does not give what the day stands for justice. Have a great new year everyone!

The person who gives me inspiration on a daily basis turns 25 today. The last five and a half years have been a tough time for him but he continues to smile,work hard, and be a good and always loyal friend. Its tough not to think what these six years would of brought for him, for sure a college degree completed by now, maybe a baseball career?, marriage, a child, these are all things that have been delayed or possibly eliminated for him. Then i thought of the alternative, what if the last six years had been void of him. Its an easy way to really appreciate what you have. I owe him thanks for helping me grow though his struggles, because of a tragedy there is a group of friends(most of us for 18-25 years long) that has been forever bonded by the need to stand by one of our own, and allowing that to grow us closer in a way that was never imaginable at the age of 15 when we thought our friends were the most important thing ever. Now we realize that they are important, but more importantly a constant. Never a falter in loyalty to one another, or the questions not asked of being there for one another. I realized not too long ago, that this has made me grow up in a pretty quick way regarding some aspects of life. The cliche's of all things happen for a reason, or its part of a plan usually resonate of bullshit to me, but at times like this (maybe because I look for a crutch) they seem to help lessen the sting, and make things feel better. Life continues to amaze me through ups and downs

how i feel about paris hilton [16 Aug 2007|08:20pm]
" A real star, the kind who haunts my memory night and day, is the U.S. soldier in Baghdad who saw a little girl playing with a piece of
unexploded ordnance on a street near where he was guarding a station. He pushed her aside and threw himself on it just as it exploded. He
left a family desolate in California and a little girl alive in Baghdad."
