The Foshays have been busy developing their first long form comic that will be included in an upcoming vinyl release(more details on that later.) The work is almost done and the boys couldn’t be happier with the results, “I always knew our band would be a perfect subject for a toss off promo like this.” states sarcastic drummer Freddy Foshay. Bassman Joey Miece chimes in “It’s cool to see our lives come to life on the page! I had no idea somebody was drawing us… How’d they do that???” Joey might be confused about the process, but guitarist and songwriter Franky Foshay has a more focused view “Once people read about the highs and lows of being in a Minneapolis garage band, we’ll get the respect we deserve!” Frontman Harry Blessing rounds out the group, “We’ve really worked hard on this, and it’ll all be worth it when the fans can see it and enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it for them!” OK you can stop gushing Harry, we get it. We think the fans will love it too.

Every band attempts this mighty feat, and all except Bad Company have failed. Usually when a band mate says “we should have a band meeting” it’s because they passive-aggressively don’t want to say something directly to another band mate, or someone has a pompous idea that EVERYONE MUST adhere to. Unfortunately The Foshay’s are at this awkward stage in a band’s development. Watch this space over the next month to find where Franky, Joey, Freddy, and Harry fall on the issues that are sort of confronting the Foshays. I mean really?! They’re just a garage band from Minneapolis MN. How much could they have to discuss?

Band meeting


With influences ranging from 60s Stomp and Bubble Gum to Heavy Metal and New Wave these two never seem to run out of ideas for their songs. How do they do it? “Repeating words and phrases over and over works good because it sounds cool and you don’t have to write as much” states frontman Harry Blessing.  Franky Foshay admits he has a few tricks up his sleave as well “I always like to use a double negative to confuse the listener ‘what’s he talking about? He’s crazy mannnn!’ Plus misspelling wurds iz kool!” When pressed further the boys take a serious tone, Franky explains “We like to write about the negative and confusing parts of life and make fun fast pop rock songs that more or less celebrate those ‘negative’ feelings as something we all share.” Harry chimes in “Yeah, it’s kinda like our bratty version of the blues. It’s gotta be a simple message, short and sweet, easy to relate to” Well if you can relate, check out The Foshays First two singles on SoundCloud below.

Yes it’s true, The Foshays are gay for Slade! They are also gay for The Equals, Cheap Trick, Sweet, The Rubettes, Tommy James, The Cars, The Kinks, The Monkees, Steppenwolf, The Runaways, The Music Machine, ELO, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles. They have also been known to have trysts with many random finds at the local record shops like Cheapo, Roadrunner, Flashlight, Mill City, and Barely Brothers. Gay for Slade


Freddy is right. Nobody likes being popular.  Popularity is sick drug sold to us through social media channels like the one you are accessing now to view a portion of this post. We all bang these channels like our caffeinated drinks or chewing gum or littering, wut ever gets you off, wutever! The point being the most of the most popular deal with this affliction most acutely. Could you imagine how hard it is to think about yourself all the time? We cannnnnnnnnnnnn               t.Freddy Foshay says being popular is the price of being popular


Take a deep breath Franky! Despite some delays, The Foshays first album “Not So Now” is well on the way to being finished. A tweak here, a fader mover there, and then export, export, export! I guess none of that helps this predicament you’re in now. May I suggest a lock for the studio door? Or maybe a nice band sized kennel?


With all the recent social and political upheavals lately, The Foshays have the perfect response for all the crusty old fogeys out there in world trying to stop change. “Not So Now!” Emphasize “Not” it sounds like its “not happening now.”  Emphasize “So” it sounds like it’s not contemporary. Emphasize the “Now” it sounds like “Not So” is the mode of apparatus. All of which applies. Take time to consider which “Not So Now”  you are feeling when watching the news, checking your feeds, or listening to your friend complain. The Foshays want to wish you all a happy International Woman’s Day! Not so Now


The Foshays really really “Like” you. Why? Because! That’s why! Yer totally awesome in every way. That thing you did was so cool and stuff! And yer so smart cuz you like The Foshays too! So don’t ever change baybee. We “ Like” ya the way you are!


Yeah Franky be careful, after all Freddy has very delicate tone deaf ears!
