What are they up to nowadays?

I'm curiosu to know how they got the gameboys to do the music? Is just a game or are the gm's hacked?

Ill direct you to around 1:50... he runs a program called "Little sound DJ" which is a synth and sequencer for the gameboy :)

Heh. Agreeing with everybody else, you should post a video of the performances. :-O

We just shot a show in Portland, ME last friday and as soon as it's ready, we'll upload it! For now, go to http://www.myspace.com/redcarrecords and listen to 'Gravemind' from 8BITches. Their myspace page links off there, too.

You should definatly post a video of you guys(and gal) playing

Post some videos of them in concert, or some of them actually playing.
