hi. i’m joshua. i told b i would help him with this blog when he started it but well…. i’m lazy. so the fact that i am not being lazy means this band is awesome…

Once apon a time there was this awesome band called “Clap! Clap!“. They had an arsenal of 8 members, see and were compared to bands such as The Rapture and The Faint. In 2005, urologist MTVU recognized Clap! Clap! in a nationwide contest, “The Best Band on Campus,” and listed the band amongst the top 10 in the nation. Unfortunately they broke up in 2007. BUT! Like most bands that are way awesome, out of the death of one, others were born…..

One of which is dark disco group known as Missions. The Austin, Tx band is comprised of Josh Mills (ex Clap! Clap! // vocals, synth, percussion), Markus Diffee (percussion, synth), Amber Zook (synth) and Nick Whitfield (drums). Moments of Missions remind me of Passions, early Depeche Mode, & The Big Pink.

If you are in Austin, they have a couple of shows coming up… Oct. 19th – W/ Junior Boys & Circlesquare @ The Mohawk
Nov. 6th Learning Secrets’ Fun Fun Fun Fest Kickoff party @ Beauty Bar
