Well, it's been a fun year. We began the band about this time a year ago and it looks like it's that 1 year anniversary that shall also be the commemmeration of our end. That's right. Hoarding the Ratio is calling it quits. After our horrid concert, our bass player, Waldo, decided he didn't want to do it anymore and after deep soul searching in the rest of the band, we thought it best to put the once grand musical effort to rest. We know. Our thousands of fans will be crushed by a gigantic snowball of despair, but before you go stepping into the warm bathtub, sharp objects or electrical devices on hand, there is still hope. From the ashes of HtR may rise another band. At this point, it is yet to be certain what will become of the remaining members of HtR, but they are all 4 interested in continuing with another project. Just not a shitty comedic rock band. Nevertheless, this site shall remain for the rest of eternity; a landmark of what beauty once graced this Earth and a reminder that truly, "...nothing gold CAN stay."
Hoarding the Ratio was a 5-6 piece garage band hailing out of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. The band was mainly a comical act and didn't create music that was supposed to be mind boggling or good for that matter. In the song section you'll find our hit songs, Sitting Here Realizing How Much We Suck (The Anthem), which was our first song. The vocals can't be heard in this version but it sounds better than any other version we have. Also in the song section is Satan With My Breakfast Cereal, a heartwarming tale of breakfast eating gone wrong. Finally, we also have an acoustic version of our emo song, You Blew Up My Heart (With A Rocket Launcher). This is performed by Poot Scoot, of course. Check back often for updates.
UPDATE (September 10)
Yes, it's been a while but have we got some news for you. First off, HtR has hit the recording studios lately and for one we came up with the little gem Satan With my Breakfast Cereal. Our first time at the studio blew hardcore because we sucked but the second time we were in better form. We will be posting other recording from that second session shortly but for now the magical Satan With my Breakfast Cereal shall tide you over. Finally, and this is a big one, Hoarding the Ratio is gonna have our first actual concert date Novermber 25th at Fat Daddy's Sound Shack in Lewisville. Since that's a ways off, we'll make sure to post directions to the establishment. So go ahead and put it on your calendars now because we know it's gonna be, quite possibly, the biggest event of the year. By the way, we fagged out and got a myspace page. Yes, it's depressing.
