THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NO. 8
JUNE 11, 2021
A few personal notes…
– Today is Bobby’s eldest son’s 13th birthday. Aaron now enters his teenage years! (World, beware…)
– On Wednesday, Andy’s youngest daughter, Chantelle, was married to Michael Ribisi. (Andy says, “I could have sworn we just took her home from the hospital.”) Mike and Chantelle have known each other since they were teens. They were made for each other.
Okay, okay… the album covers of the first two ELM TREASON albums (“Days of Reaction” and “Acoustic Treason“) have hatchets on them. What gives?? Why??

Your Input: What do you think?
So, here’s the deal….
We have decided that the live performances we recorded at the end of March will be made in an album as well as a video. The material is being mixed now.
We have 16 songs.
Now, we’re not famous or established enough to just presume that we can put out a double album and people will buy it. (nor are we that arrogant).
But we are really proud of what we did and would love to put it out in some way.
We may be able to fit the complete set on a single CD, but on vinyl, it will DEFINITELY need to be a double album package.
Maybe we should put create a “standard length” album based on the “best” performances and then use the complete set for the video version?
What do you think? What would be most enticing to you?
Simply one of our favorite pictures. A friendship for the ages…. Groucho Marx and Alice Cooper.
Bom Bom Boom
We found a rehearsal on a thumbnail drive (of all places) of us running through the song “JUST LIKE ROCK AND ROLL” (from our album “Acoustic Treason” ) when it was brand new.
Haven’t seen THIS is nearly forever.
We thought it was lost.
Sharing it NOW!! Enjoy.
