Been busy reorganizing thoughts, rooms, genres and beard growth over the last few months. We have not been able to get into the studio to track, though we do have several HUNDRED songs you have not yet ‘HERD’. We have been holding back for a good reason. The market is flooded with similar ‘doom’ related projects, and this makes TTH want to write differently.
Not at all interested in influencing or buddying up with stubbly D+D dudes that do similar kinds of music. Dropping D, ONE FINGER BARRE CHORDS, growling ugly ass dudes with mouths agape – akin to exotic stars waiting on a payoff. Looks good on youporn, but the reality is – it is most anti art/ mass depression/ego laden regurgitated mid life crisis energy – the nail in the heavy metal coffin – and not so wonderfully sonic. Sure, I LOVE PINK FLOYD – but shit man, never would I ever pretend my band is as cool as the 1972 Pompeii pioneers. Leave that shit alone brothers and sisters.
We thrive on art, which means creating new things. The same old thing has been done, and will be done – and by 10 year old Korean girls – well! Probobly better than I do – so in that case BACK TO BLUES MUSIC for this songwriter. Thanks for your interest – and also – thanks to those not having an interest….it keeps me writing, and secures my plight – knowing I am on the right path. I love you all, kinda.
What are you listening to?
I stopped listening to modern music years ago – in order to hear new songs that might have some validity. I am so lost as to what people listen to, tending to stay away from media trends that push sounds into my memory and hopefully thwart regurgitating it back.
A good way to create is to let the inspired energy in through watching and observing, moving around, from loving and hating things…observation and dictation.
Understanding culture is the seed of movement.
Thanks for your time.
Thinning the Herd
We are almost done with the video! More to come.
t might not mean much in this world of social media and over saturated mediocrity we call entertainment – but today we charted on CMJ’s loud music chart – beating out Phil Anselmo and SODOM among others, and still rising! Thank you to my peoples who are working for the direction of this band – the radio gods, and especially ANGUS YOUNG and Simon Chardiet who instilled in me an old school musical work ethos- finally finding a home on the dusty radio frequencies.
We are proud to be headlining a show Sept. 13th in our hometown, BROOKLYN baby — at Grand Victory.
Finally a show that is congruent to our sound – since COC. We are psyched man!

We played our first show with Garth this week – it was with Cinema Cinema, bbigpigg and pocket pool. I liked the show a lot. No pretense and bullshit, all the bands rocking out to the other bands, people showing up and saying hi! Whiskey and beer and all sorts of good times.
WELCOME GARTH MACALEAVEY INTO THINNING THE HERD.
Thank you all who auditioned and took the time for us.
