Crik



























Crik is the band that brings big sounds from a little town near the Oklahoma-Texas border. In 2002, the band swore off drinking and took up jogging. This change in lifestyle saved the band members not only money, but prison time. In 2003, the band swore off TV, even cable and satellite TV, and decided to take more community college courses, especially creative writing. The Pay-Per-View bill was getting obscene, and this change eliminated it. Their lyrical output, however, quadrupled.

Meanwhile, the Crik fan base was growing bigger than the local bingo hall could hold. Then, in 2004, the band campaigned heavily for the wrong political candidate and lost most of their audience. By 2006, most of the band had graduated from community college, and their diligent high school counselor, Shirlee Rains, had helped them obtain scholarships to state universities. The band broke up unofficially in 2007, but then, this tune hit the radio in July 2009:

Of anything you accomplish
And all you will never be
The creek bleeds aluminum
The mettle of our industry

As of July 2009, everyone from Crik but the drummer had graduated from a four-year college, had a corporate job, and was working on a marriage (for the most part, the second one).

With the local radio stations playing their tunes from 2004, the band quickly put out Crik in August 2009 and began touring local bingo halls in September 2009. Be on the lookout for them.
