In a move out of the file marked "that's about what I expected", it seems The Ernst Project (as it was) has died.  Three years ago now, I conceived this project as an engine for me to record an album.  A polished, studio perfect album.  Which is exactly what we failed to do.  What was supposed to be a workshop turned into a band, and what was supposed to be a polished studio album turned out to be a really good, but still not perfect live album.  And I'm SUPER proud of Are You Now or Have You Ever Been? but it was never what I had set out to do.  And now with band members departing for personal, professional, and geographical reasons, it's basically down to me and Andy.  And that does not a band make.

So now, it's back to the drawing board.  This time, I'm going it alone.  I'm re-designating the name The Ernst Project to my solo gig, which is:  A new album!

Plans are now in the works for my solo album.  Just me, a couple of guitars, a box of harmonicas, and maybe a few other odds and ends.  But a simple, small, beautifully depressing album. 

In the meantime, I'm still actively looking for members to form a new band, which (if I have my way) will be called either The Scut Farcus Affair or Dorothy Mantooth Is A Saint.
