"I remember the first time we jammed, at baker's the old apartment, and we just knew." - Matt Abram
After multiple high energy, high octane practice sessions in Longstraw, Louisiana, the band decided they were ready and booked a gig with Nixani at the world renowned Sundown Tavern. Their first gig was followed by several others until Baker Wardlaw left to study in France for a year. A gig was booked for the week before Christmas. It was the first and only jivahs show to date that was recorded and tapes of this show have reached cult-like status in the underground live music scene. Upon his return from France, the jivahs played a reunion show with newcomers Oso Oro. Although there is no news from the jivahs camp, they are widely considered to be on a quasi-hiatus, brooding and awaiting the next opportunity for the three headed monster to rear its ugly head.
