During some recent Born of Thunder downtime, Demonik — soon to be moving to upstate New York — pitched the idea of doing some shows again as the old band. "I think we were all kinda bummed out about the way it just fizzled at the end. It was just unfinished. There is family vibe when we're assembled, and it's shitloads of fun."

"Even though Mike is moving, we intend to keep both of the bands going, doing some longer weekend tours here and there and recording new material." says B. "Born of Thunder has a new seven-inch split coming out soon, and the Humanoids will be putting out a cassingle."

A disciple of metal, Sinn feels a stronger calling to keep the Humanoids name alive, and that calling is fashion. "It's what we have been doing for so long, and if we stop, sissy haircuts and tight girl jeans will be the norm, and that can't be good. Besides, my leathers were weeping in my closet every night, and I couldn't sleep. They must be worn again!"

    Seth Putnam, who succumbed to a fatal heart attack on June 11 at the age of 43, was the leader of some of the most unforgettably (and therefore some of the best-) named bands of all time.  
    In the vortex of impossibility that is Coolidge Corner, it's not surprising that few residents realize there is a local rock demigod working at the neighborhood post office. "Strangely, there have been times when people knew who the Humanoids were, and it was awesome," says guitarist Johnny Machine. "As for co-workers, a lot of the guys know that I play in a band. But a lot of guys play in bands."
