Elliot commented about being a part of ULI's band on the upcoming tour: "I have been fortunate to be able to have played with Uli everywhere from cruise ship tours to European trade shows. He is clearly one of the greatest guitarists ever with a sense of harmonies few possess. Since we grew up on the same music we share a passion for greats like Jimi Hendrix. I am very excited about being a part of the filming and recording taking place on this tour"
Uli is equally excited to be playing with Rubinson: "It is always a real pleasure to share the stage with Elliott Rubinson. Not only is he an excellent bass player, who delivers the goods at every show, but he also connects with the audience in a great way. Together we're rocking the house!" More...

If Seth Putnam had lived, he'd no doubt be celebrating 25 years with Anal Cunt this year. He was taken from us at the age of 43 a year and a half ago, young - but not unexpectedly. He lived his life hard and fast and on his own terms, surviving to an age none thought he would. He didn't battle his inner demons, but rather got on the same side as they were. We lost that 'voice' that would come into our stereos and give us a dose of that sick humor that would parody anything into the realm of stupidity. Before forming Anal Cunt as a joke, Seth was a big fan of metal, alternative rock and hardcore - being a fixture in several Boston bands. It was this old school street cred that made the fans understand the joke that AxCx perpetrated. The year was 1988, a good one for the scene and one in which everyone was looking for something a bit different. And different was what they got. Seth Putnam was a twenty year old living in his mother's house in Newton, Massachusetts. He had been in and out of several area bands and was briefly in Shit Scum with Fred Ordonez. They guested on a radio show and jammed at Fred's rented warehouse. More...
