So Much for Last Year
Hunting Bigfoot is the brain-child of two high school friends - Paul Rowan and Christopher Walsh. Although the two have been playing music independently for years, they'd never played together until now. Walsh was in a string of NYC bands including Petrol and Lowdown Payment, and Rowan was to used to banging it out on a borrowed acoustic when he got drunk at parties. Rowan wasn't the kind of guy to do group sing-alongs or Eagles covers. He played loud, in-your-face originals that dared his audience to make him stop. 'I was never trying to entertain. My attitude was 'you think you're going to sit on the sofa and have a quiet discussion about Sense and Sensibility? F**k that, you're going to listen to this!' Rowan finally decided that his impromptu performances weren't getting his point across to a wide enough audience, so he enlisted Walsh to help make it happen - and Johnny Rolfe soon thereafter. By Fall 2004, the band had road-tested their material in countless dives and local clubs, relying on old friends and band-mates to fill in on bass and drums when needed. They even played a few acoustic shows with Rowan and Walsh on guitars, and Johnny Rolfe in the front row yelling, "Fu**ing pussies!" The band went into the studio in early 2005 and began recording "So Much For Last Year." Check out their website and the freaks who've been trolling the halls of their 'guestbook'.
