our letter to sound and fury 2010

Good Day, sirs

i am writing in regards to having my band, The Mistake, play at the Sound And Fury festival this year.

we recently published a 12 inch record through the subversive laboratories at Hellfish Family, and it is currently flying off the shelves in true revolutionary fashion.

The Mistake has been terrorizing crowds in and around Orange County for the better part of a decade, and in 2009 decided to strike back and reclaim our once highly regarded position in the Scene. We feel that playing the Sound And Fury festival would allow us to reach a larger audience, and win their hearts and minds to our cause.

Feel free to contact us, or our representatives at Hellfish Family, or any member of our Legal Staff, and let us know when our time slot will be.

Thank you for your consideration on the matter

The Mistake

Monday, March 29, 2010


so, my curiosity got the best of me and i decided to Google "the mistake fuck what you heard"

this is what i found:

What’s in a title? What’s in a band name? Look, if I see a song titled “Fight to Lose” by a band called The Mistake, from an album called “Fuck What You Heard,” my expectations are for some serious punk rock. So I download the song, notice it’s only exactly one minute long. Expectations higher – this has to be some hardcore a’la early 80’s, when far from being scouted by major record companies, punk bands were more likely to be investigated by the FBI. The track does not disappoint, it’s an exploding minute of ferocious, tight, tempo shifting, call and answer hook-stuffed, desperate hardfuckingcore from the suburban wastelands of Orange County.

i also found that the rapper/r&b dude called Javier also has a song called BIGGEST MISTAKE

played a show at the Crosby in Santa Ana the other night.
was probably the most awkward show ive ever played in my life. ive played to less enthusiastic crowds, crowds that were further away.. but for some reason this one was just rough.
it was rainy
i was sober
there were lots of girls talking so that in between songs all you could hear was chatter
the closest person to us was Michael, and he was sitting on a bar stool, looking very grumpy

at least we sounded good
