sparse, rich recordings, layered in appropriate texture and subtle meanderings. music taken from the very soil of the american landscape, and polished in an urban setting. this is music for drifters, a journey into parts unknown.

Album Notes
Chris Darby and Philip 'Roland' Gairroes met while attending theological formation for the Roman Catholic priesthood, at a small college in rural northwestern Missouri. Upon entering their final year in the seminary, they joined musically to form the now disbanded Formation Issue. That band played one concert before its certain demise.

A year later the paths of this duo again converged in La Grange Park, IL where many songs were resurrected. Upon this foundation, the gridwork for Them Damn Kids was built. After a brief six month hiatus, the living quarters were relocated to the city of Chicago, IL in late 2003.

The band travelled as much as their jobs allowed, traversing throughout Illinois and surrounding states. In 2004 they managed to play an impressive 125 shows. The simple desire to play as much as possible and bring joy to as many as possible are the primary motivations which fuel them.

In 2005, Chris convinced three other people to join the duo and form a rythm section. They recorded an album, titled '...the day has just begun'. This album is comprised of twelve songs, and was released March 1st, 2006. Currently, the band is hard at work writing many new songs, breaking from the familiar folk feel of earlier recordings. They will debut the new sound sometime in late spring 2006. With the return of summer to this fine city, TDK hopes to see a return to the relentless touring of the past. All is well within the confines of this small universe.
