Sunday, April 14, 2013


Their recent west coast tour was abruptly cut short when someone attempted to steal their van and in the process destroyed the ignition column rendering it undrivable. The van is still stranded in Oakland, California and the quote to repair and get it back is $1200. Forrest Friends are not only a great band but also very nice dudes. All donations will go directly to the cause. Donations of $10 or more will receive surprise gifts from the Cryptic Carousel vaults. Please help out with any amount you can. Save the arts! Save the van!

Every little bit counts.

Now available: Forrest Friends - 40 Winks of Dyer

Forrest Friends - 40 Winks of Dyer - C40 Cassette (CCR-045)
What started out as quiet and spacey, in an instant became LOUD, jarring, and chaotic. Right when my mind was trying to catch up with what was happening audibly, I realized half of the duo was missing — only to suddenly turn around and see him parading through the packed crowd playing a kazoo.
I was hooked. I’ll never forget that performance. Forever since I have been one of their biggest fans. -Rachel LeBlanc
