My bass was stolen from Dr. Rockits Blues Bar on 4/20. The description is as follows:
Red, 5-string Peavey foundation bass guitar with Fat albert stickers, Monkies Doin' It sticker, Feedback sticker, Snoopdogg sticker, PETA stickers, Carebears sticker, "I'm just one big fuckin' ray of Sunshine" sticker, Spongebob sticker on back of Bass. Also the second pickup is fuked and inside the pot, and the red paint is chipped on the back. The E-string tuning peg is also loose. Inside of torn gigbag with a red, white, and blue neck strap. This bass isn't worth much, except to me, since my mom bought it for me 13 years ago. MAJOR SENTIMENTAL VALUE. This is my BABY!!! Please help me out if you know any information to the where abouts of my bass please contact:
Sunshine @ 361-516-1685/ 361-595-7544/ 361-522-2404/or 361-720-1111 or email@example.com.

MDI is currently working on getting back into the studio to finish their self-titled debut album. We will be entering the studio in February, so your support is critical during these next few months. We would like to thank all of our friends, family, and fans, for giving us one long, crazy ass year, full of love and support. December 19th @ Dr. Rockits is going to be the last show of the year, so we hope to see everyone there to end this year of 2004 with a booty bumpin' bang. Peace!
As special thanks to everbody, we've posted a video slideshow of the Pedernales trip, featuring "Point of View" from the upcoming album. See it Here.

The members of MDI would like to thank everyone who helped them get to Pedernales Studio to record their first full length album. Special thanks to Steve Chadie, who engineered the album, Aaron the studio intern, and Rusty the housekeeper. Most of the recording process is finished, though MDI may return to record a few new parts, including trombone parts performed by the recently returned Ulrican Williams. Mixing for the album will be done by Steve Chadie. In the meantime, you can view pictures of the band in the studio in the Pics section. Thank you for your patience.
