A group is forming on the corner over here. They
all seem to be wearing Grey Sweatsuits! I wonder what they're up to? And
It looks like there having more fun then me! - Jane Doe to John
Doe on her cell.
Let's hit the streets people! All across
the globe people are wondering what the fuck is with all the weirdos in
grey sweatsuits having all the fun. Well, if they had just checked here
they would have known that it ain't nothing but a grey sweatsuit event!
Anyone can have one! Just tell us where and when and we'll post it so
like-dressed individuals can group together for spontaneous love making
or a sunday bike ride, whatever your pleasure!
February 9 & 11, 2005 – The Grey Sweatsuit Revolution Lecture Series and Intervention Convention
The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design Presents, The Grey Sweatsuit Revolution Lecture Series and Intervention Convention. Keep it Live!
Ah, ah, ah, ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde and sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming!
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Led Zepplin wrote these lyrics in 1970 but despite the whole timing issue we have recieved personal confirmatiom from Robert Plant himself that he wrote this song about us going to Halifax. Call him. He'd love to hear from you.

2006 – MOCCA (Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art) Show
When we first found out we were going to be in a show at the MOCCA we were totally psyched! Because we've always wanted to have a show at a coffee shop. We pictured people in grey sweatsuit berets sitting around and complaining about the quality of their heroin. But yesterday, Derek Mainella, the gallery owner/curator that got us into this show told us what MOCCA actually stands for, and it has nothing to do with JAVA! Or bongos! Regardless, keep your bananas peeled for the show, it may be what everyone else is doing and we all know how important it is for you to fit in.
August 28, 2004 – GAME-CITY!
In their first real attempt at being legitimate artists, Jeremy Stewart

for the working out of some serious issues that will touch your heart
and blow your mind.
