ABOUT

Becoming increasingly bored with

exploratory facial hair configurations and fantasy baseball, Davey von Bohlen and Dan Didier of The Promise Ring called their old friend Eric Axelson, late of the fabled Dismemberment Plan, to see if he was busy. He wasn't.

A few short months later, the lads, at the time called In English, found themselves signed (in real ink) to a West Coast rock-and-roll concern that fronted them decent enough cash to hire a real producer (J. Robbins) and record in a decent studio. Their songs, a gorgeous calliope of acoustic twang and horns-and-keys pop, failed to impress the label. Sometimes damn good just isn't good enough for some folks.

With a record in the can and no one to put it out, the boys changed their name to Maritime and gave us a call. Our long winter's nap ended, we thought, "why not," and swayed the boys to let us release the marvelous Glass Floor.

They are booked by Tim Edwards at Flower Booking: 773.289.3400, or tim@flowerbooking.com. Visit their site at www.maritimesongs.com
