Back in 2000, I took a job with a local ISP called Green Apple. I've since moved on (which is an entirely different post), but I met many interesting and talented people during my time managing their support department. One such person was a young gentleman that we had hired as a full-time tech support specialist by the name of Corbin.

Corbin is the type of guy who is just... genuine. At the time, he played guitar in a band called False Image with three other young, talented musicians (Joe - Bass, Scott - Vocals, and Nick - Drums) and invited my wife and I to their concerts as well as to the studio (Moo Pigface, if I recall correctly) to watch them record. That was a great experience, and my wife got some great photos!

At any rate, False Image eventually broke up and Corbin joined a band called Mahoney as their bassist. I don't recall if it was before this or later that Corbin left Green Apple. Mohoney's style wasn't quite up my alley, so I didn't get a chance to see Corbin play.

Eventually, Corbin moved back to guitar with a band called Cringe. Their music was very much up my alley, and their CD, "Animation," was one of the few CDs I had in rotation in my car. Unfortunately, time was at a premium for me, and Cringe broke up before I had a chance to hear them play.

After that, I sort of lost track of Corbin. I knew that two bands had emerged from the breakup of Cringe, Noise Auction and Philo. Both bands have a lot of talent, but I really wasn't paying much attention. I guess it's because I know Corbin by a different name, but I didn't realize that Philo was the band that he currently sings and plays guitar for. Now that I do, I'd like to do as much as I can to support them, hence the banner at the top of the page. I urge everyone to check 'em out. If you ever meet the band, tell Corbin that Rod says "Hi!" :)
