These people are my dear friends, my family away from family, my brothers, sisters and siblings. If you’re interested in MY work, I hope you will check THEM out, because without them I am a poorer person.
As you may have heard, Bellows, eskimeaux and Small Wonder had some of their gear stolen in Baltimore. This is only sad in that “things” were stolen; everyone is still healthy and safe and that’s what really matters.
That being said, the tour must continue — the show must go on!
If anyone has enjoyed our music, please consider sending our bandcamps to your friends to check out! If they like it, ask them to consider purchasing it so we can keep them on the road!
If you’re new to The Epoch and have listened to the albums on bandcamp but not downloaded them, consider doing so now so that you can enjoy them whenever you want, wherever you want!
Bonus also: If you get a chance to see Bellows and eskimeaux on tour this week, check out their merch table because not only are there physical CDs of Blue Breath (handmade; #rare) and As If To Say I Hate Daylight, but also Florist/eskimeaux split cassettes (Limited Run, Very #Rare), Wendy cassettes, tour patches, and an exclusive eskimeaux “Best Of” CD in anticipation of her upcoming album!
For those who have followed us, retweeted/reblogged us, have purchased albums from us during this affair, we thank you. For those of you who only have the ability to send good vibes, or shake our hands, or just give us a smile, we thank you just as much. We hope you keep listening to and enjoying our work even if contributing is outside of your ability. We have great things coming in the future and this is just a minor setback in our lives!

My first book, fun:danger::danger:fun is still available as well! Check it out on my Etsy, here:
In COMPELLING black and white, culled from my archive of long lost favorites (RIP: Old Silent Barn, Double Dagger, These Are Powers) and young, budding superstars (members of The Epoch, Bluffing, Gradients & the So So Glos).
I say: My first zine, lovingly created for the fans. Made up of images and fragments of images culled from my extensive photographic record of all-ages New York concerts. Shipping is included in the price!
Quimby’s (Chicago) says: Lotsa show photos, bands jumpin’ and screamin’, compiled filthy, smoky houseshow hordes, collaged and un-collaged. Is this really all going on in New York? I don’t think I’ve been to a show in that town where anyone’s done more than nod their head to the beat. Thanks for the glimmer of hope, Richard. -EF 26p, b&w “eggshell finish”, 5.5”x8.5”
Matt FX (MTV Skins) says: The only two books on my coffee table are this and Amy Sedaris’ book on entertaining.
Joe Ahearn (Clocktower Gallery, Silent Barn, amazing human) says: Awesome.
