I was reading the Cassino thread from earlier today and someone mentioned that Northstar's Pollyanna is 10 years old now. It was released on April 20, 2004, so we're like 10 days late on this post, but what a great record. I would fly just about anywhere in the U.S. (including Huntsville, Alabama) to see that album played front-to-back. Feel free to reminisce on the album in the replies if you were a fan if you don't know what I'm talking about, fix that (Spotify, Rdio).

Cassino left this update on their Myspace:
Cassino Updatehello.
I thought I would throw up and update as to whats been happening with Cassino. We have been invited to play the As Tall As Lions CD release shows up and down the east coast, so be on the lookout for dates soon. Should be at the beginning of August. We have found a new webmaster, and the site is being bypassed and re-routed to make it easier on us. Should have something up soon. (Thank G-d....that pain in the ass has yet to live up to any of our expectations) We are in the process of putting together studio time to do an album. We Have found someone to help us produce it. It will probably be different than what you are...
