05/18/05- Sorry for the delay... California was amazing, it started out a little rough with some technical difficulties in the beginning of our set at the Troubadour but we pulled through and ended up having a blast. We drove out to Indio, CA the following day and partied at Frank Sinatra's house (no kidding). Free alcohol, food, massages, and clothing insured a great time. Early the next morning we drove over to the festival and hung out for a bit then at 12:30pm we went on and played for roughly 1800 people. It was incredible. Thanks to Nate, Henry, and Magnus (the coolest Norwegian ever check his website out) for driving us all around California. Pictures are up in the photo section. New shows to be posted shortly.
04/01/05- Shindig #4 was on pace to be the biggest and best one yet until some uninvited guests claiming to be the NYPD and the NYFD decided we were having too much fun and made us end the party prematurely (3 or 4 songs into Something For Rockets rocking set)... We didn't even get to play but the bands that did were awesome and thanks to them and all the artists for their great work. AND thanks to all of you guys who came by, we're very sorry your fun was cut short... Anyway, pictures from Shindig and the little after party at Franco, Mark, and Kelsey's house are up on the photo page. Again we're sorry and we love you.
P.S. On another note a few days ago a segment on SxSW aired on MTV News which included a few clips of us playing... AWESOME!

07/8/04- Oh mother another catastrophe!!!! Saturday's show left a bad taste in everyone's mouth as it ended after only two songs due to a dislocated shoulder sustained by Mr. Franco V. After a long, boring, and painful visit to the emergency room morphine was administered and the shoulder was popped back into place. The final diagnosis was some ligaments were torn and possibly a rotator cuff, however, those stingy fuckers didn't even give any pain killers to take home. What does this all mean? It means absolutely nothing our shows with The Mooney Suzuki will still take place as planned... Just be prepared to not see as much action from Franco's left arm, however, his right arm WILL be working extra hard to compensate. Pictures from the ambulance ride as well as from inside the ER are on the way... Take care will you.

04/22/04- All righty right folks... I've got us some good news and I've got us some baaaaad news. The bad newS is that we unfortunately had to cancel our May 7th show with Apocalypstik at Continental.

There is no release date set as of yet but we're thinkin' sometime in February Thats all for now pals... We shall keep you posted... till then, hold your breath.
10/29/03- Here's a little blurb from Whiperin & Hollerin about our show at Jone's Beach with Iggy Pop:
I'm not wanting to forget New York's Sexy Magazines, who played in the plaza outside the coliseum between sets. They blasted away in classic Dolls-glampunk glory, fun, good and loud, and it's been some time since I've seen a lead singer in mascara playing good music.
10/09/03 (Post Script)- Check out the pha...pha...pha..photographs just posted from our show at Jones Beach with Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Sonic Youth, and Thursday. See 'em on the past shows page.

As part of CMJ's Music Marathon in NYC we will be playing at Tobacco Road, come watch... You will not be dissapointed. 'Till next time... GOOD DAY.
08/23/03- Well folks, thats it for the summer of 2003... A not too terribly hard 15 shows in 11 weeks. With the end of the summer I am verry happy to say that we have gained many new fans and at the same time, I am very very sad to announce the departure of our long time friend and guitarist Ian Millican. Ian has chosen a different path and will no longer be playing with us, however, Ian will always and forever be a member of The Sexy Magazines. His endless contributions to the band will never be forgotten, we are all terribly sad to see him go but it was something he had to do and we know he wlll be successful in all and any of his future endevours. Ian We love you and will miss you greatly, you are as good a friend as you are a guitarist, and your guitar skills are unmatched. With that, The Sexy Magazines will open a new chapter... one that has yet to be unfolded, as our search for a new guitarist begins we can only hope to improve... who will it be?... who will it be? The next few months should prove to be quite exciting for us... as we search for our newest member and head in to the studio to record an EP. Stay with us friends. We love you.

03/24/03- I'd Be Myself has been added to the music page LISTEN TO IT NOW!! ONE SAYS YES, TWO SAYS NO, THREE DON'T TALK... THREE JUST KNOWS. Good BYE.
03/11/03- Today we gave our cd to be pressed, printed, and duplicated, we'll have the finished sum in the opening days of April... be anxious, we're proud of our work. We cut it down to only three songs, for, upon consulting the most expert of opinions we found that only three of the tracks were truely worthy of being placed on plastic. HOWEVER... A clip from I'd Be Myself will be posted shortly on the website, as I'm sure you have noticed the empty link on the music page... worry not, it will be filled. Tip your hat, 'till your hat don't tip no more and GOOD DAY to you all.
02/27/03- My Favorite Girl and Things Fall Apart can now also be heard on the music page. It seems as though the song When You're Mad will not be put on the demo... the final list is looking like: My Favorite Girl, Man O' Man, Things Fall Apart, I'd Be Myself.
02/24/03- Hear the new recording of Man O' Man on the music page. More songs from the new demo will be added in the coming days... Be prepared. We've recently decided that My Favorite Girl will also be on the demo, we're not sure though, whether or not to replace another song with it or just put five songs on the cd... oh the decisions to be made... Also, check out the new Forum.
02/18/03- Well the demo is coming along slowly but surely, it's in the final mixing stages. On the disc will be: Man O' Man (new vesion), When You're Mad, I'd Be Myself, and Things Fall Apart (Old Version). This list, of course, is subject to change but it is looking like this will be the one. Now we just have to finish mixing, get copies made, and figure out the most cost effective way to sell it through the site. It will not be much longer...hopefully
01/13/03- Ok, first off, happy new year to everyone. Second... We weren't very happy with how the demo came out, we simply didn't have enough time in that studio to get what we needed done. So we took matters in to our own hands and decided to redo them yet again... on our own. We spent many long nights tracking and we're satisfied with the immediate results, however, Marc still has to lay down his guitar tracks and then it all has to be mixed. So be patient, media in the form of compact discs with our music on them will be available shortly.
12/16/02- Check out the past shows page to see some new pictures of us playing. On thursday we're going back to the studio to finish mixing the tracks for our demo. So as soon as we get that done we'll get copies made and you'll be able to get one. Just be patient.
12/01/02- Hear the song that is played before we go on stage; our theme song: We Are. At the music page.
11/30/02- The show at CBGBs was awesome, we love playing there.
11/29/02- The Irving Plaza show went over very well. We wanna give a big thanks to Kelly Osbourne for letting us open for her.
11/20/02- We tracked three songs in the studio (Man O' Man, Things Fall Apart, and When You're Mad), we're just waiting to mix them now. As soon as we do that we're gonna get copies made and they'll be available through the website in a few weeks. That's if everything goes according to plan of course, which, things have a tendency of not doing sometimes.
