Welcome Tribe, to the third installment of the Official Blog of The Unsatisfied.  I hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving as much as we did.  We in The Unsatisfied have had an awful lot to be thankful for this year.

The week-end after Thanksgiving we got to take part in a little surprise party for our friend, Sgt. Michael Watson of CNN fame.  His darling wife, Heather contacted us a few weeks before the holiday to let us know that the Sarge was back in the States and that they would be in Atlanta for the GA/GA Tech football game the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  With a couple of phone calls to The Sheraton Atlanta we had it all set up.  Sgt. Watson and his companions were indeed surprised to walk in to Fandangle’s Lounge at The Sheraton after the game to see The Unsatisfied in the flesh!  We had a private dining room reserved where we had a few drinks, signed some autographs and played a very personal acoustic set for the Sergeant and his guests.  All of the members of the band were excited about getting to meet the Sarge in person, but once we were there it was like being re-united with family.  We had a blast!  You can check out http://www.facebook.com/theunsatisfied for some photos and a few iPhone clips of some acoustic stuff.  We’d also like to send a HUGE thank you to Katie in the Marketing department of The Sheraton Atlanta as well as the entire staff at the hotel.  What a great bunch of people! Luv’n’Blood Sheraton!

Speaking of ye olde iPhone…we spent an afternoon in early Autumn in a junkyard armed with nothing but artistic vision, a rough storyboard idea and a couple of iPhones.  What resulted was the Official Video for ‘Apocalypse of Joan’, the second single from our latest CD.    Our main-man Eric Scealf and guitarist Johnny Stockman did the directing and Johnny did most of the “camera” work.  The finished version of the video contains nothing but images shot on the iPhone and then edited by Mr. Stockman…Amazing, in my humble opinion.   The video is full of some spectacular images that mirror the weird and spooky vibe of the song.  We had heard of alot of people complaining about the video quality of iPhones before we ever started, but we felt that the finished product had a classic 8mm look to it.  One man’s trash is another man’s art, perhaps?

Anyway, you be the judge…

Our next video is in the planning stages and will be a concept piece for ‘The Lovin”, which was the first single from  ‘Songs the Belt Taught Us’.  We’re not sure yet if any of it will be shot on a cell-phone, but we’ll keep you posted.

After our shows at the end of October we’ve taken a little time off from the road.  We’ve been spending alot of time writing new material, working on the videos and generally taking care of business and spending a little time with our families for the Holidays.  We intend to tour sometime early next year, but may do a show or two in the region between now and then just to test-drive some of the new songs…We think they’re the best yet!

And-Don’t forget to go to http://www.theunsatisfied.net/store for all of your Holiday shopping needs…at least those that Rock!  We have some great download specials that’ll be running through the end of the year, so be sure to stop in and load up your new toys with some Unsatisfied tunes after Christmas too!

Coming Soon:  A Five Part Guest-Blog by the one and only Jim Sells!  Each Blog will feature a one-on-one interview with a single member of The Unsatisfied!  This should be great!

Stay tuned Rock’n’Rollas! For now, we’re signing off. Luv’n’Blood!

    Apocalypse of Joan video is a master piece, a keeper. The organic weirdness is compelling and it begs to be watched again and again. Out.
