s: We have a full length on the horizon; I, personally, have been pushing to hook up with SKYSCRAPER MUSIC MAKER “super music production” company at SKYSCRAPER STUDIO and get Andrew WK some engineering credits on these tracks. But who knows, that may be a couple projects down the line.

a: Girlfriends is in the process of making an album, and it won’t be recorded through a boombox for the most part.
