About:

Ok people, we have a band. What is the point of a band, really? Our band, Pegasuses-XL, is Mark and Joel, and Jeff and Jeff, who played in a bunch of other bands and decided to make a band based on their mutual admiration of "bikes, coffee, and books." Most of our band practices happen at a coffee shop where we sit and talk about what we could do conceptually, rather than going home and actually practicing it. We play alot of Scrabble, read alot of books about dystopia, World War II, and politics circa 1968. We've spent a good amount of time contemplating our place in the Universe, and to be fair, some of that is due to drugs. .

The band has typically been a bunch of synth's and a drummer. Lately we've gotten a little bored with the synths only thing, mostly because we all have been living in Athens for a few years now, where everything musical and artistic sort of blurs together. Mark Dale of "Disband" , Jeff Tobias of "We Versus the Shark" and "Dark Meat," Joel Hatstat of "Cinemechanica" and Jeff Rosenstock of "the Arrogant Sons of Bitches" and "Bomb the Music Industry!" have come together as "Pegasuses-XL" and made a new record, entitled the Antiphon where we made whatever music with whatever instruments we felt were appropriate, which is pretty much what you get when you mix those bands together anyway. It's still mostly keyboards. It follows 3 EP's, and is our first full length, and we are very pumped about it. .

Really, we're friends who want the same thing from life, to understand "what we are doing, and why?" the Antiphon is our response to ourselves, questioning ourselves. The music is everything we've ever done in our lives crumpled up into 38 minutes, and documented on disc with the hopes that our dynamic elements and our personalities will perhaps carry on in the work of others. .
