    I've been noticing I've been listening to a lot of bands that have completely disappeared for what seems like no reason whatsoever. What happened to these guys? Where did they go? Why don't we hear any more music from them? Thus I propose this thread. Post a "Whatever happened to [insert artist here]?", and lets see if we get some answers. I'll go first:

    Whatever happened to God Lives Underwater? Life in the So Called Space Age came out in 1998, and then POOF! No more GLU. What happened? I liked these guys alot.

    Alright sherlocks, get cracking.

    Whatever happened to Billy Conway and Dana Colley, the two surviving members of Morphine?

    The last I heard from them was a show I saw at the Somerville theatre here, maybe 4 years ago now, was a tribute to Mark Sandman, with a bunch of guests.

    Thanks, I really liked the whole Morphine vibe. I think that whole band "clicked" incredibly well.

    I was exposed to them about 6 months ago, and learned about how Mark died, and I was wondering if they stayed together and formed a new group.

    One of the guys in GLU had a side-project called "Robot Teen America" which apparently fizzled.

    As near as I can tell they're off working on other things.

    Didn't those guys form a big band version of Morphine? I heard that was pretty sweet.

  9. They broke up in September 2003. Billy is now working a solo album and a book of poetry. Jimmy Chamberlin is working on a jazz solo record. Paz is in another band, but I can't remember the name of it. David Pajo is in Papa M, and Matt Sweeney is in the same boat as Paz.

    They released a record on SST and Enemy, then laid low for a few years before resurfacing for their last record on Avant and then they broke up.

    Last I saw Zach he was working at Nothing Studios in N'awlins with Trent doing some production work. My band was recording there at the time so we heard some of it. It sounds like a Motown Soul Coughing.

    I have no idea when it comes out.
