SAHB R.I.P.

It is my sad duty to report that Stay At Home Bomb is no longer together. It was my great pleasure and honor to perform alongside such talented musicians as Judy Cocuzza, Sharon Needles and Lysa Flores for the past couple of years. We had some great times together and it was an extremely difficult decision to let go of the fun and energy that I felt we had onstage.

I would be remiss if I failed to mention the other Bombs who have played with us at one time or another: Mia Ferraro and Eva Gardner, both of whom subbed on bass for Ms. Needles while she was recuperating from major surgery. I would be similarly remiss if I did not express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Ian Brennan, who secured Stay At Home Bomb some incredible opening slots that most bands would kill for: The Mr. T. Experience, Fleshies, Shonen Knife, Fannypack, Peaches, Girlschool U.K...Thank you, Ian. Last, but certainly not least, I must thank roadie extraordinaire, Flames Evil, who saved me from my fumbling guitar antics and nasty habit of breaking strings at just about every show. Flames is an honorary Bomb if anyone is.

Ultimately, it was my decision to disband the group due to ongoing scheduling challenges. Each member has full-time responsibilities outside of the group along with other musical commitments and it proved increasingly difficult to find time for this band. It just seemed like the moment had come for me to move on. We part as friends and I wish my former bandmates nothing but success in their future endeavors.

With this being said, I'd like to leave Stay At Home Bomb's fans with one of our songs, written by me for Teresa Covarrubias (ex-Brat), who was originally in SAHB but decided to leave the band early on. The sentiment expressed in this song now applies equally to Judy, Sharon and Lysa, who are each one of a kind.

This is such sad news. You ladies were one of favorite bands. We'll miss the cookies at every show.

I regret not being able to catch one of your performances before you disbanded. It sounded (and looked) like a whole lot of fun.

Well, darn! I should have come downtown to San Diego when you played.

that is lame. You and Lysa were such a joy to watch. Well, I have my memories, and a Xeroxed SAHB hand-screened poster, which I'd love to have signed by you, Mrs. Bag. :) I am in LA, so what could I do to get you to clutch a sharpie?

Dear Alice,
like some of the other persons I tried to find some more SAHB tunes at the web. One of my search results lead me to iTunes where the songs should have been for sale.
But: No luck.
Is there any way or website to purchase the songs? Maybe directly from you?
I am looking forward to your reply.
Kind regards
