Another Recreational Violence











{October 17, 2009}   Awake Asleep

AwakeAsleepBack

Awake Asleep are: Val Matt Emmich – vocals, guitar; Harris Katz – guitar; Andy Gesner – bass, backup vocals; Chris Shingola – drums. Photo is from the back of their album, Going Through the Notions.

Can I Watch You Pee? in my opinion is the highlight of the album. The lyrics is entertaining, amusing and smart. The song has a Weezer with a twist of FooFighters to it. Track three, Bite Your Lips is pretty catchy too. I’ll be streaming some songs in Val Emmich Fans.com.

I THINK THIS BAND SHOULD HAVE GONE REAL FAR.THIS MUSIC COULD STILL HOLD UP TODAY IF NOT MORE NOW THEN WHEN THE ALBULM WAS MADE. IM SURE THERES SO MUCH MORE THAT WE HAVE NOT HEARD, AND IT WOULD BE ASHAME TO LET SOMETHING THIS PURE GO.THESE BOYS HAD A MOMENT IN TIME THAT I DONT THINK THEY RELIZE.THE DRUMMER IS SO CUTE AND SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN VALS STUFF.I HAVE SEEN VAL PLAY AND I NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE.IS HE IN ANOTHER BAND? GET BACK TOGETHER OR FORM A NEW AWAKE ASSLEEP WITH THAT DRUMMER!

Was your comment in any way influenced by Eric leaving Val’s band? I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s very coincidental.



Rose Bloom says:

i dont know who reic is.. the drummer that was in the band that i know of was chris shingola he was one of the best drummers..id like to know where is he now?



Rose Bloom says:

vals better ina band then with a beat box..he needs to open his mind up and try something new. look back to move ahead…



casy says:

yes i heard this band on sound cloud. it is a shame he went solo from this group. he would have had more luck with them. forget luck, 4 guys with talent is better then one. sometimes you have to not think $$$ and go back to the basics. to bad he will never see this msg i bet..



andrew says:

maybe they could have gotten buy with a differant base player need be..maybe even drop the guitar player need be if matt could pick up the slack..but the corky sound all together is a hook. this is a shame casy.



andrew says:
