House Full Of Guests You Want Gone...Invite Us Over To Play!
Press Coverage (full story) $1.99 Band strikes: story by Ivan Gone On dark and stormy night on a lonely piece of road, I came across a marquee sign that read (All you can eat $1.99 buffet) So I pulled in tired, thirsty and hungry. Looking to rest and fill myself with substance, recharge my batteries and be on my merry way. I sat at a table ordered a beer and said to the waitress I’ll have the $1.99 buffet. She laughed in my face and said the bands right there. Looking at the direction she was pointing I saw a few guys plugging there guitars in. I’m sorry I said I don’t understand, what’s the joke? She said with a grin you didn’t read the fine print on the marquee very well. They are the $1.99 buffet band. I had been bamboozled; lead to believe that for under a couple of bucks I would be feed. Little did I know that I would be contributing to the hat being passed around for the band, not to have them play more songs but just to get rid of them. It worked, I enjoyed a beer and burger in piece and quite. Getting back into my car I looked again at the marquee sign and saw what the waitress was talking about. The sign read (All you can eat $1.99 buffet) and underneath those three foot tall letters, about six inches high I saw the word that had eluded me, it simply said Band. Now I’ve never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed but this blatant disregard for advertising has trapped me more times then I’d like to admit. I can still hear all those waitresses laughing at me.
Press Coverage (half a story) Stop the madness:story by Ivan Gone’s brother “Almos” Don’t know when this group started? But there here and won’t go away. They keep showing up like a bad penny. I once gave them five bucks and still they came back the next week. I can’t afford to make them go away, so I’m taking up a collection. Please! Please! Donate and stop the madness. Despicable or deceiving you be the judge. Story by Sean Hannit Gone This so called joke the $1.99 Buffet band seems to be some random act of sheer cruelty. It is such a hardship and a terrible waste of gas, to travel so far only to find there is no $1.99 Buffet. Simply two guys with guitars handing out crackers. Torture Alive and kicking in the U.S. Story by Rush Tobe Gone The only word this reporter can use to sum up the band is fallacious. Now take that fifty cent word, apply it to the bill and give me my damn $1.49 back! And Even More Press Coverage Rolling Stone Magazine: “Whoever sold them guitars should be shot!!” New York Times: If you thought King Kong was bad for the city, wait till you see these guys.
Half a slice Press Coverage $1.99 band strikes again: Story by Long Gone No one knows where they came from; the only thing certain is they won’t go away. I still have nightmares to this day. I Hired the band under there credo (House full of guest you want gone? Invite us over to play) little did I know that not just the guest I wanted gone would flee in terror but anyone within ear shot would also. The headline in the morning paper read Town evacuated, new noise ordinance in effect. And actually almost the bands biography The $1.99 band is a hit and run outfit always on the move. Before you know it there gone, but after time passes they strike again on an unsuspecting public. Taunting a $1.99 buffet would actually be worth it. There discography is outrageous each album cover makes you wish there was a buffet and the music itself makes you want to throw up. Together they are the perfect fit for a bulimia diet. The band constantly pushing the boundaries of human understanding, with broken strings, cracked kazoos, half a slide whistle and the occasional guitar. Lyrically they are unnerving with their malfunctioning thoughts and musings. Still knowing all this somehow like a moth to a flame, I am always drawn in, stopping to see if there really is a $1.99 buffet. The myth continues and so does the joke.
