The chat transcript and some old news articles are back online thanks to Antonio Flores! Hopefully we'll have some new news for you guys soon.
The website was hacked again. So, we're in the process of getting everything back in order. Unfortunately, I only had database backups from January, so any news from then to now has been lost. Sorry. Please excuse the mess while we clean up. And for all those that just can't live without it, the BBS will be back up sometime this weekend!
The full transcript of last night's chat is now online. Thanks to all those that attended and participated.
Okay, you guys asked for it. On Tuesday, June 12, 2001 at 7:00 PM PDT, Ipecac Recordings will be holding the first live chat with its fans. We hope to answer as many questions as we can in the time allotted. So check back a few minutes before the event and we'll have a link posted for the chat.

As rumored about, the working band name Tomahawk has been

Kevin Rutmanis and John Stanier.
This band IS different from Peeping Tom. Still no official

Both projects are in a rough demo stage. Both sound great!
