Let’s face it, pop music is confusing. Hip-hop is boring, and alternative music is just plain stupid. Country music sounds more like rap music these days, and rap music is played in dentist offices across the country. EDM is still the same pile of crap it’s always been. Rock is a lonely zombie wondering the forest, looking for teenage brains to devour, but none can be found. Have no fear! The Foshays First EP is now available in local record stores in the Rock n Roll capital of the universe, Minneapolis, MN. They may not have seven members, and their dance moves are anything but synchronized, but they play Rock n Roll Baby!… That is too say it’s more “rock,” than “rock and roll” per se. Really it’s more like garage rock with a little bit of glam, and bubble gum, with a touch of synth based new wave. And I wouldn’t really called it “punk” but it has a bit of a punk ethos. That’s not too confusing, is it?

Buy The Foshays First EP at Roadrunner Records, Hymies Records, Cheapo, Electric Fetus, Barely Brothers, and Agharta Records. Or buy it online RIGHT HERE!!!


The Foshays and frozen pizza

Watch out frozen pizza companies, The Foshays have your number, and like the headline reads, they are hungry! Too many hours rehearsing and many months in the recording studio can make a rock band more crazy than a boiled hamster sandwich. So if you think you can skimp on the pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and green peppers, you got another thing coming! The Foshays will write a top ten hit about your lack of toppings, watered down sauce, and chewy mealy crust! and that’ll show you!


Finally the rumors can be put to rest! All the “when’s” and “why’s” and “how’s” can be silenced for ever! The “No way’s” and “What if’s” and the “Nay-says” can all go to hell, because The Foshays First EP is finally out. 4 songs: Get Me to Normal, Wuts Wrong With You, ‘Til it’s Gone, and All the Leaves. Plus a 12 page comic “Gig-Hex.” 400 numbered and signed copies are available in the shop now. Get your copy today!


The Foshays have been mired in a long arduous recording process over the past year. As you can tell from this weeks comic installment Bass man Joey Miece knows why. Ok, so Franky and Harry can be a little obsessive behind the virtual mixing board, and maybe they don’t always have it together studio wise, but what they lack in hi-class, they make up for with rude garage stylings. It’s not their fault they don’t really know what they are doing, as long as Joey’s got the time to “DO IT AGAIN!” everything is going to be alright!


Foshay Comic

It’s been a long road for The Foshays. Even though they are the #1 underground cartoon rock band in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, they still have to deal with all same issues actual bands have to deal with. Endless rehearsals and recording sessions, YouTube video shoots, online promotion, the pressure of PACKING A CLUB!!! All for what? Lead guitarist and songwriter Franky Foshay emphatically explains “Toiling in obscurity makes a good band great, and were already great, so all this effort will make us AWESOME!” Bass dude Joey Miece has a more metaphysical interpretation of the bands current goals “You gotta be careful with success, after all it’s got the word “Suck” in it. That should tell you something!” Even though that’s not true, we get your point Joey! Famous or not, rumors abound that The Foshays first 4-song EP is on the horizon. Stay tuned in for more info over the next few weeks.


The Foshays have been on a well deserved break this summer. “Why?” do you ask? The boys just finished recording and mixing their first album, Not So Now! And they need some R & R “So what?” you say? Well it’s going to be the biggest rock album of the millennium, wowing fans and critics alike. “Highly doubtful!” you exclaim? If you need proof of their sonic brilliance look for The Foshays Four Song EP this fall in Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area record stores like Cheapo, Barely Brothers, and Agharta Records. “OK. I’ll think about.” You respond politely. Glad we could have this conversation. Cheers!


Hey Teenagers! it’s time to make a choice! Pick your favorite ding bat celebrity, boring tv show, predictable movie, embarrassing YouTube star, pretentious “artist” (for some reason they call musicians and singers artists these days, hence the quotes), and video game loser. Fox tv apparently has no clue what they’re doing so your vote really really matters. Get to it!

Being in garage band takes a lot of patience, endurance, and understanding. Three traits bassist for The Foshays, Joey Miece, has in spades. When rehearsal starts late, Joey starts later. When no one shows up to the show, he shows ‘em how it’s done. When the band bickers, he butters! When asked about his get-along style Joey responds wryly “As the bass player it’s my job to keep everybody in line by blurring the lines. Expectations are always hard to meet, and in the end it’s not usually worth meeting them if everyone is not on board. I just try to keep everyone happy by being painfully honest. Most people like honest opinions, if not, then they’re stupid.”

Joey says “It’s okay, still love you!”

Honestly I can’t fault The Foshay’s not-to-trot drummer, Freddy Foshay, for being late. These days everything seems to be a little slow. Once again Minneapolis is covered in snow. Anybody who’s in a band in the upper Midwest is slipping and sliding, and most likely running behind. Even though Freddy is well known for his ungodly tardiness, I’m giving him a pass this month. I might be a little late too, hope you understand.


Sometimes the most simplest concepts pass us by, but not our favorite bass player Joey Miece. He’s always on point with logic, honesty, and dare I say “love?” After all, no matter what Joey says, or does, he’s damn cute! Lead singer of The Foshays, Harry Blessing, knows all to well the disappointment and/or confusion of standing in the shadow of Joey’s brilliant observations. You think it’s going to be about you, but it’s usually about something bigger than all of us put together. Harry knows to relent when he’s been beat. Roll over when he’s been rocked, or when Joey is an adorable wise ass!
