SUN. MAR. 2nd 2014-
Every year the local rag, San Diego Citybeat puts out reviews of local band demos called, THE GREAT DEMO REVIEW. The reviews are usually pretty harsh, and I think some of the reviewers take it as an opportunity to work on their comedy routine. The touchies did not submit anything because we didn't have any demos we were working on. The city beat reviewed our album, MESS WITH THE UNICON...GET THE HORN. True it's not a demo, and we didn't submit it, but we got a review anyways and it wasn’t half bad.
