Saying goodbye to good friends We lost two good friends in 2016. Ally Grourlay was a big fan of AN and played us regularly on his radio show in Edinburgh Scotland. He had a crush on Teri Trel and was thrilled to be Mr. Browntree in our film Satur-delia, where he received a big hug from Teri.
Steve Brents (AKA Six) did a lot of comedy collaborations with us, writing skits and doing several voices for the Apology None Fun Hour and our show "The Wrong Channel". Most notibly the commercial satire "Saturday" which ended uo earning its own T-shirt. He also played the voice of the race announcer in Star Trip and the Bunny Rabbit in Satur-Delia.
We miss you guys and will see yu on the other side. Thanks for the memories and God bless.

The completion date of the grooviest film in cartoon animation history has moved from March to April because the band ended up tangling with several -err- hippies! Rob, Terry and Teri participated in the musical Hair at the Amelia Musical Playhouse in Fernandina Beach, Florida. Terry ended up playing the lead role of Claude (just when you thought you've seen everything!) The cartoon is amazing, with a constantly rising bar of art, animation, storytelling and music. Which leads to the next item..
Satur-Delia- The Original Soundtrack is being updated It has been nearly a year since our latest album has been released and since the film Satur-Delia is still in production, some of the music has changed. The CD is currently being brought up to speed to better reflect the cartoon. Some changes will be barely noticeable, while at least 2 songs will have substantial changes. The tray card image collage will also be updated. If you own the original CD, it may soon be a collectors item, ya dig?
The new version of the CD should be available by the time Satur-Delia is released, as well as digital downloads and merchandise.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah from Apology None! And other stuff!
We hope you are having a great one and a fantastic new year!

We are please to announce the arrival of a fab new song. "Alabama Free" is a piece of Apology None's early history when they tried their hand in the folk scene that was so popular in the 60s. The song paid homage to ZenBob's home state. Unfortunately, the folk audiences dismissed them as being too "poppy". It didn't help that the band was also going through their gimmick suit phase and were starting to experiment in psychedelic music and "wall of sound" styled production. Either way, the song was a minor hit and helped popularize the band in the psychedelic pop scene.
HERE'S THE COOL PART. This song can be downloaded free. Just go to the "My Band" tab on the Apology None Facebook page and it hangs in the song list along with a download button. We hope you dig it and spread the groove!

The winner of the contest was the Doors "Light My Fire". Art School Dancing on Scottish radio Leith FM 98.8 is a groovy adventure in listening and Apology None shows up regularly so it is highly recommended. More information on how to access the show on the links page.

2009 was a fun year for the band as they entered Mike Pinder's Song Wars competition as well as IAC's "Year of the Indie" song contest.
"Yesterday Once More" received a Noteworthy Songwriting Achievement certificate and "Blast Off" received a very nice critique by Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues and received high marks. He noted that both songs could be used as Bond themes. The critique can be viewed in the feedback page.
A couple songs had a great run in IAC's Year of the Indie contest. "Need some Love from You" made it past the first two eliminations into round 3. It was a good achievement because it was entered in the "pop" category which was huge. "Capricco" did an outstanding job as well as it made it to round 4. Out of the thousands of entries in the Alternative/retro and psychedelic category, it was one of 15 left in the final round. Also worth mentioning is "Superfast!" made it to #11 in their "underground 40" chart. Reminiscent of the song's run on the Surf chart on Mp3.com nearly a decade earlier.
