1.23.06 - Farewell from Jon
To the fans and friends Ive made over the years in Rufio. On January 21st 2006, I played my last show for the band on a snowy night in Shibuya, Tokyo. My heart left the band a while ago, and now I feel its an appropriate time to physically leave the band while were still friends, just how we started it. I want to say thank you to all of our fans in all parts of the world, youve been nothing less than spectacular to us, and especially to me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play in stages all over. Im a little saddened to say goodbye to Rufio, but Ive never been more excited to think of doing something new with my life! Im leaving the band, but not the music. Thank you for an amazing five and a half years!!!
i wish it wasn't true, but hey, what can ya do..
So after giving The Comfort of Home ample time in my CD player, I've decided that I definitely like it. It's no Perhaps I Suppose, but I wasn't really expecting it to reach that level of excellence. It's still some quality music.
Hey I was just wondering if anyone would be willing to send me the new rufio album via AIM.
If you do I would greatly appreciate it and will send you a cd in return.
I have the new silverstein if anyone wants to trade.
Sorry to spam-ish and such, but...
I'm a 16 year old boy from Portland, Oregon who is REALLY REALLY REALLY looking for people who want to start a Progressive/Emo/Concept-like band. I, personally, am a guitarist of more than two years experience, and I do a lot of all around song writing. I write lyrics and music, and I write them a lot. And this is something I want to do badly. Influences are along the lines of Coheed And Cambria, Brazil, The 3, From First To Last, Early November, Underoath, and nearly every other Post-Hardcore/Emo-esque band out there.
So, if anybody knows anybody in the metro Portland, Oregon area that might have any interest in playing, PLEASE contact me with some info at MonkeyAbuser@aol.com .
