The Atomic Numbers
The Atomic Numbers
The band released their first full-length CD "Electromotive" in early 2000, which was met with critical acclaim by the US rock press and bent the ear of a few major labels. One such label, RCA, funded a series of expensive and ill-advised recordings, the fruit of which has yet to be heard - until now. Citing creative differences and frustration over the experience, the members went their separate ways, pursuing various projects like fingerpainting and holistic medicine. The band is currently on an indefinite hiatus as they explore the inifinite possibilities of capitalism.
Tim is living with his woman in an apartment in sunny Denver, CO, working on his doctoral thesis, and planning a solo disc. He also has a cat, I am told. Jeff is living with wife and cherubic anklebiters out in the suburbs, working for the man, recording acid-jazz tape loops in his basement. He was playing drums with The Rioteers at first, then bass, but finally quit after being forcibly demoted to the French horn.
There's only so much humiliation a brother can take. He is now playing guitar in a band called Mono y Mono. Zach is still living in Hamtramck, touching himself frequently, and is now playing with the Electric Six, after two years on the road with Brendan Benson. He is also a part-time member of The Nice Device, Mood Elevator, and most recently Aquarius Void.
He fucking wails and will school you for a nominal service charge. Matt is a disgusting human being. He refuses to bathe. But he is living in Royal Oak, working some job, and making the scene on a nightly basis.
He played with Brendan Benson for four years and will talk to Brendan after this 'Raconteurs' thing is over. Oh - and now he plays keyboard and guitar in the Mono y Mono band. I know, fucking crazy right? He is just that talented. Hope all is well, bitches. We miss you.
