"The Quitters" Record a Song

01/24/2000

Thanks to pusa@egroups member joltman for unearthing this one:

Yes, you've read that correctly!!!!  The boys recorded a new song.  go to musicblitz.com, or more specifically The Quitters.  You can download an MP3 of the newest song by Chris, Dave, and Jason!  Go here for The lyrics.

We're desperately trying to find out if this is a one-shot deal or what,  we'll update you here as soon as we know.

ok, here's the scoop, thanks to Ron at Orange recordings:
... i spoke with chris and here is the deal on "the quitters", 
an old friend of theirs from high school owns (or works at) musicblitz.com.  anyways he persuaded his old friends from high school to do one (1) song.  musicblitz will take this song and submit it for inclusion on possible  soundtracks (they are doing this with alot of bands now). they could not use  the PUSA name due to a columbia contract (they might try to get the name back later), so they came up with "the quitters". chris said they only recorded the one song, and being all of the things that they have on their individual platters, they have NOT reformed....but for all of those that could use a wing and a prayer, chris did say "you never know what can happen...we did have fun when we were doing it"....

09/14/2000

PUSA appear as the musical guest on CBS's "Late Late Show".  They brought along their newest best bud, Duff McKagan (of Guns 'n Roses fame) to hold the rhythm on the bass guitar.  They played a great version of "Tiny Explosions".   Fans who were in attendance, and those who watched the telecast were elated to see the guys together again having so much fun.  Unfortunately, the latest word from Chris Ballew is that PUSA will NOT be touring.  Hopefully during these promotional gigs they'll just have so damn much fun that they won't be able to keep themselves from touring.......

In case you missed it, here's how it sounded: 

 

10/01/2000 - PUSA Tapes their "World Tour" Show

pusa_withduff.jpg (39800 bytes)PUSA broke the news in the Yahoo chat, and then it happened.  They played a 'secret show' to 40 happy ticket winners from a contest sponsored by local Seattle radio station KISW (and of course MusicBlitz).  An extra pair of tix was auctioned off on eBay, and our own Mike Lyon, who loves PUSA more than money, bought them, and proceeded to fly from Cleveland (not Boston ^_^) to Seattle just for this show.  PUSA's now somewhat regular guest Duff McKagan (of Guns 'n Roses fame) once again held the rhythm on the bass guitar.  

Go here for Mike Lyon's abridged account of his pilgrimage, check back in a few days for a link to the full-on travelogue.

 

11/06/2000

When PUSA appeared as the musical guest on CBS's "Late Late Show" back in September, they taped 2 songs, aired one, and saved the second for airing at a later date.   Rumors were that the second song, "I'm Mad" would air on election day, 11/07/2000.  This was later confirmed on the "Late Late Show" website.   Well for some unknown reason, PUSA was on a day early, leaving many PUSA fans, well ....  MAD!!!

Visuals you missed:  Chris throwing a mini tantrum during the first break, jumping up and down, fists clenched.  Also, listen at the end, you'll hear what sounds like someone banging on the keyboard, then going up and down the keys.  That's Chris' HEAD!!!  Very funny.

If you were among the many who missed it, here's how it sounded:
