I just heard a rumor that the Pope is planning on making an appearance at our show in Hoboken on Friday.

I don't know where he thinks he is going to park the Pope-mobile on the crowded streets of Hoboken, but if he makes it we'll be sure to dedicate, our song, "Rich and Famous" to him.

JERSEY CITY'S OWN, THE MILWAUKEES ARE AT MAXWELL'S!

FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 2008
DOORS AT 9PM
$8

THE MILWAUKEES- www.myspace.com/themilwaukees
SPIRALING (w/ JC's own, Marty O'K) www.myspace.com/spiraling
THE MOLOTOV COCKTAILS- www.myspace.com/molotovcockrock
STEREO DELUXE (from indy) www.myspace.com/stereodeluxe

The Milwaukees will be celebrating the re-release of their critically acclaimed American Anthems vol. 1 on Friday, April 18th @ Maxwells in Hoboken, NJ.

Why the re-release? Well, starting on Friday April 18th, the album is going to be available as a free download. Anyone who downloads the full album in the first month will also get an unreleased bonus track.

from SPACE CITY ROCK:
"Clearly, The Milwaukees haven't set out to either reinvent or redefine rudimentary rock so much as they've remained determined to simply redeploy it in new and more creative ways. The lion's share of the collection fits well within the "back-to-basics" genre movement of the late '70s/early '80s, which produced not only diecast-styled groups like Springstein or Huey Lewis, but also New Wave groups of The Pretenders' or The Cars' ilk."

hey jc list...

www.milwaukees.com/free

The Milwaukees are an American rock and roll outfit hailing from Jersey City, NJ. They have been complimented as ?charmingly arrogant? by some, and ?hard-working showmen? by others. They make music for the masses: engaging, raw and instantly approachable. From their commitment to the craft of songwriting, to their purist approach to the music industry, the Milwaukees draw inspiration from the unwavering rock and roll spirit of American rock acts like Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. Influences from the Faces and Elvis Costello to the Who and the Clash permeate, but don?t dominate, each unique and raucous performance.

THE MILWAUKEES WILL BE PLAYING THE ANNEX( www.theannexnyc.com) ON THIS FRIDAY. EARLY SHOW, 8PM

zeitgeist is a good movie that points out questions that have been left unanswered...is it flawless, by no means...but it brings up points about religion, 9/11 and our gov't that have been swept under the rug.( i think partly because we're afraid of finding out the truth, but that's a whole other topic!)

some people on this thread are a little naive and took the point of the post a little too personal.

why is it when you simply ASK questions about 9/11, you're labeled a conspiracy nut?

if anyone thinks that this administration had nothing to do with 9/11, is simply uninformed of the history of the US. fdr/pearl harbor, gulf of tonkin, etc...NOT TO MENTION THAT THE NEO CONS STATED THEY NEEDED ANOTHER PEARL HARBOR IN THE PNAC! read it for yourself.

http://www.newamericancentury.org/RebuildingAmericasDefenses.pdf search pearl harbor.

"Further, the process of transformation,
even if it brings revolutionary change, is
likely to be a long one, absent some
catastrophic and catalyzing event ? like a
new Pearl Harbor"

one last FACT to leave you with, which this movie points out, HOW COME GEORGIE AND DICKIE DID NOT WANT THE 9/11 COMMISSION REPORT TO BEGIN WITH AND HOW COME THEY TESTIFIED WITH CONDITIONS LIKE, THEY BOTH HAD TO BE TOGETHER AND THEY TESTIFIED NOT UNDER OATH...CAN YOU BELIEVE SUCH A THING, NOT UNDER OATH!!! that alone, should be the flag-raiser for everyone!

trp3...right on.

JERSEY CITY BAND:

THE MILWAUKEES--UNPLUGGED!
NEW ALBUM OUT NOW, AMERICAN ANTHEMS vol. I
www.MILWAUKEES.COM

most recent review:
?I know you?ve been worried. I have. Lately the Jersey music scene seems to be all about synthesized dance beats and post-modern ennui. The Milwaukees are here to say fear not. Big guitar rock is alive and well in the Garden State.

?There?s nothing groundbreaking here, and in this case, that?s a very good thing. This is meat and potatoes blue collar rock. The songs are about driving, women, and driving some more. The guitars blaze, and frontman Dylan St. Clark provides some of the best vocal performances of the year. Hit the road, open your car windows, and turn it up loud.

??Moonshaker? and ?Bullet Train? will have you pounding the steering wheel. Apparently American Anthems vol. 2 is already in the can, and that is something to look forward to.?

?Ken Shane, The Aquarian

quick story on the owner/cook: some guy asked the waitress for his steak to be cooked well done...the owner/cook came out of the kitchen to tell the guy he couldn't do that to the meat..." i can't cook it well done, you'll have to order something else"...true story....that's the guy i want cooking my steak!!!

hey jimmoe...

thanks for responding to my Q's...a couple more...

was the contractor a basement waterproofer or just a contractor?

roughly how big is your basement? (30'x20', for ex.) because you might have needed two sump pumps.

do you remember what kind of pipe the contractor used in the trench along the walls...was it PVC(typically white) or PE(black accordian like)?...

and can you see the pipes coming into the sump pit area? if so, how many inches from the floor are they entering?

when you install a french drain, you DEFINITELY tap into the water table, groundwater...that's what they are made to do.

the differences between french drains are PVC(clearly the better pipe) vs PE, and if the pipe is pitched or not(most contractors do not pitch the pipe, believe it or not!)...and if the basement calls for it, one might need 2 sump locations within the basement and stronger pumps all depending on the amount of water you take in.

thanks.

hey jimmoe..

just curious...what kind of pump and size(horsepower) did the contractor supply? what size discharge line did he use?...all of this is important in determining why this happened. it's not commonplace, but certainly does happen occasionally where you need to upgrade because of the pump being overwhelmed.

if your pump wasn't adequate, it would be like towing a trailer with a honda civic., you got to have the right power...otherwise, it's just not going to happen when it deluges...slow and steady rain maybe.

i've yet to put in a 2" discharge line, 1/2 horsepower pump and it not do the job. realize that the average contractor would never use this size pump and discharge line.

and did you deal with a contractor...or a basement waterproofer?...it could be a world of difference.

and brewster, i'll agree...a check valve problem is a check valve problem, and in this case putting a sump pump with a monstrous capacity right next to the point of entry would still be a band aid but it would probably do the job and keep the basement from flooding.

if there isn't any smell to it it's probably groundwater seeping into the antiquated sewer system through cracks and whatnot...

to do what you suggested...i would run that past a plumber first...i think if you could successfully clamp on a temporary hose and get it out to the street i don't see why it wouldn't work...IF IT'S GROUND WATER. don't attempt it if there is oil slicks in the water or smelling at all like sewerage.

FYI, to install a sump pump is about $1200.

brewster....

what kind of pump are you talking about kicking in the other day?(trying to get a scope of your problem, little hard over posting)

the only thing i could think of is rebuilding a sump aprox 18"x 24" RIGHT NEXT to the trap or sewer lines coming in through the foundation...and put a 1 horsepower sewer injector pump that could pump 9600 gallons per hour.

it'll be like a bilge pump philosophy of pumping it out faster than it comes in, but unfortunately not correcting the problem at the source.

you're right, french drains would be the remedy only if it wasn't sewer water and it came in along a wall(s) and not just one place(which is what i'm visualizing is your problem, correct me if i'm wrong)

if the water that is coming up out of the trap(where the sewer caps are in the floor), and the water is clean, then that would be the water table rising up...the only way to stop the water table from rising is a sump pump and/or french drain(which includes a sump pump).

if the water is tainted and smells, then unfortunately it's a sewer problem...refer to the other posts that talk about the caps and valve shutoffs...

if it's the water table, i can help you out.

is the basement flooding because of the sump pump being overwhelmed or by the sewer backing up?

or is it seeping from where the floor and the walls meet?
