03/17/05Sexohol Announces First Album Ever Released on iPod® shuffle
BEVERLY HILLS, California—March 17, 2005—Los Angeles-based alterna-pop band Sexohol today released their debut album, "Enjoy!" on Apple® Computer's revolutionary iPod® shuffle. "Enjoy!" iPod shuffle comes preloaded with 12 songs from Sexohol's album, “Enjoy!” so it’s ready to play right out of the box. "Enjoy!" iPod shuffle is available in two models: 512MB holding up to 108 additional songs for just $109 and 1GB holding up to 228 additional songs for just $159.
“iPod shuffle is an insanely great music player, but it has one fundamental flaw,” said Roger Quickly, lead singer and guitarist for Sexohol. “There's no music on it. Sure, you can put music on it, but that means installing software, downloading or ripping songs—frankly, who has the time? The 'Enjoy!' iPod Shuffle comes pre-loaded with 12 great songs from our new album, 'Enjoy!' which won't be released on CD until late April. So not only do you get a great music player with great music, you can get it before the CD release date.”
Sexohol's co-lead singer and bassist, Golden Delicious, sees releasing albums via iPod shuffle as the wave of the future. “It’s only a matter of time before other bands use iPod shuffle as a distribution method or promotional item. With our tradition of innovation, we thought it important to be first. And we've left plenty of room for songs by other visionary artists like The Beatles, Trent Reznor, or Weird Al.”
Quickly was quick to point out that "Enjoy!" iPod shuffle is not endorsed by Apple in any way. "If Steve Jobs asks us to stop selling them, we will. 'Cause, well, Steve is the man," said Quickly. Golden added, "And we don't want him to crush us like a bug."
"Enjoy!" iPod shuffle boasts all the features and accessories of a standard iPod shuffle. Users can charge and transfer additional music from their Mac® or PC by plugging the "Enjoy!" iPod shuffle directly into a USB port.

Happy New Year!
We hope everyone got everything they wanted for Saturnalia. Roger & Golden got some ultra-cool pix taken,
just before they exchanged their gifts. The first is on the revised homepage. The rest are cooking in
Photoshop. Or at least that's what Roger claims. I never knew that Photoshop required so many towels.
In November (which was the 9th month b4 Julius & Augustus wanted months of their own
-- I tell you, Emperors have such egos! Anyway), we were at Oasis Mastering
getting the first half of the CD pumped and bumped. New versions are available
on the Music Page.
You may notice Golden is louder on some tunes. That's 'cause we remixed 'em too!
It was totally Roger's idea. Really. Golden didn't ply anyone with favors.
Those are vicious rumors.
Just so you know, we're plannin' a big, badass Bacchanal to celebrate the CD release, probably in April.
So keep those schedules open! We'll let everyone know wassup when we do.
Spread some joy!
OH YEAH! Our Bacchanal at the World-Famous Whisky-a-Go-Go!
was spectacular! If you were there, you know the deal. If not, well, just be sure to catch the next show.
Pix from the festivities are posted on the Pix page. Check 'em out,
We've also got the show on video, of which we'll post bits in the upcoming weeks.
In the meantime, Roger and Golden are back in the "studio," "laying down" "vocals" for their love duet "Lover's Voice"
(forgive me, I was running behind on my monthly quota of quotes).
Frankly, there's a lot of heavy breathing and screaming coming from the "vocal booth" for a ballad. I mean, you can sorta explain it away
when you're recording a slamming rock tune. But in this case it's just a LITTLE suspicious.
Anyway, rough tracks will be posted as they become available. 'Til then, stay tuned!
Get your Sexohol fix on 8:00pm THIS Friday night, August 6th at the
Yep, there's nothin' like seeing the fabulously sexy Golden Delicious and Roger Quickly belt out
their rockin' tunes whilst pawing each other and lucky members of the audience. Except maybe
bein' at home having someone else paw you while you listen to the MP3s.
But really, it's MUCH better
(Technically, it's an all-ages show, but you probably should leave the kiddies at home!)
Tickets are $13 at the door, but we can hook you
up with advance tickets for only $9!! Just drop Roger
a note, and
he'll fill you in on the deal!
Or you can print out one of these tickets
and get in for
$10 (we don't make the rules, we just break them).
Masquerade masks will be provided to prevent the guilty from being incriminated...
See ya at the show!
(Yes, we know this is the same as last month's news, but we want you at the show!)
