Syghe for your Lyghe

This is going to be a long story so get ready:

When Syghe broke up in 2007, David and I agreed to keep syghe.com up and post news about our respective projects on it so the fans wouldn’t have to go looking for us. Unfortunately the site was owned and operated by our then manager, Roy. When we broke up, he stopped returning my calls and eventually the domain expired. I tried to register it myself, but a domain squatter had already gotten a hold of it.

The squatter wanted $150/month for use of the domain, and that wasn’t something David and I were willing to do. I lost hope about ever having syghe.com back. I am glad to say that the squatter got bored of holding our domain, and it’s finally ours again!

A lot has happened in the last 5 years, and I’ve received many kind messages from all of you. Let me answer some of your questions up front.

1. Syghe is not back. Unfortunately David and I are still not making music together anymore. We each have our own projects though, David writes under Flying Castle and I write under Genre. I will be posting tracks from both projects here on this site, as we originally intended.

2. Syghe has more music. Despite not writing music anymore, David and I got together at a studio for kicks in 2008 and recorded a few demos. I posted three of them on our Soundcloud, which you can check out in the Music Section.

3. YES WE FIRED ROY. He was the worst manager I think any band has ever had the misfortune of having. He stole our money, neglected our work and failed to publicize our projects. We took him to court but because we never had a firm contract, we ended up losing. Either way he’s gone now.

4. We have T-Shirts. A lot of people have asked about our shirts. We had them available at one point, but I think they’ve gone down now. I will do what I can to get them back up again.

5. The old site is gone. I’ve added all the posts I had saved on my old computer to this new site, but the old site died when Roy lost the domain. That includes all the old comments, pictures, and everything else you don’t see here.

I think that’s just about it. I just got back from LA so I’m pretty tired. I’ll write up some more and keep adding to this site this week. Keep it real and Syghe for your Lyghe!
