June 2004 - Gadjits over; Architects born
Brandon Phillips writes:
The full story goes like this. Keyboard man Ehren Starks left The Gadjits to embark on a life of academia and normal behavior ... he called me the first monday night after we got home from a tour with the Stereo. We went to Chili's and he dropped the bomb there over an "awesome blossom". That same night i called everyone else over and told them what was up. There was an awful silence which was finally broken when i asked if anyone else felt like hanging it up, given the new bit of bad news. None of us wanted to leave the game ... even with this new bruise upon us. So we began the awful task of rehersals without a fifth member and we stayed that course until one evening when the great Adrianne Verhoven sat down behind the decks and made the thing whole again. Her band, the Anniversary had called it quits after a long haul as one of Lawrence, KS. best loved exports to the world. The new five-piece band was not just a return to a sense of completeness, but an opportunity to begin anew from somewhere between our pasts and our future. We christened this new band Architects.
(editor's note: Adrianne Verhoven is no longer in Architects. We expect ex-Kansas keyboardist Steve Walsh will soon assume all keyboard duties.)
