Help Us Shoot Ourselves

Our reunion/final show is happening on Friday, March 5 at MarsCon 2010. We have plans to videotape this show since it will be our last; however, we can only cover so much of the action. This is where you can help.

If you have a device for recording video — camcorder, digital camera, iPhone, superhuman painting speed — please consider bringing it to our show and recording at least a portion of our performance. The format or quality doesn’t matter. What we want is your perspective on the show. Creativity is encouraged; we’ll have the wide shots covered, so closeups and reaction shots of the audience are what we really need. After the show, contact us via the web site so we can arrange a way to acquire your footage.

We hope some of you will seize this opportunity to help us capture this event.

"Stop Boring Music!" EP Available Now

We’ve just added more free music to The Nick Atoms Historical Society! The EP Stop Boring Music! brings to you some of the last music recorded by The Nick Atoms in 2005. The songs were recorded and sent to local radio stations to drum up interest in the band. Did it work? Well, our cover of “Believe It Or Not” did inspire a local music show to do an episode dedicated to covers by local bands.

The Nick Atoms: Stop Boring Music! EP

You get “Sidewalker”, the song we performed on the TV show “Strictly Original”; you get a new recording of “Cathy!” with a more, eh, forceful ending; you get the ode to fairground carnival rides gone wrong, “Tornado”; you get the aforementioned “Believe It Or Not”, the theme song to TV’s The Greatest American Hero; you get the start and stop filled version of “Land Of The Lost”.

The complete EP can be downloaded from our Album Downloads page.
