Apparently, Bryan Harvey, the ex-singer/guitarist for the House of Freaks was found along with his wife and two kids slain in their burning home. Very strange and sad.SFgate
The House of Freaks were a great band, wish I had their CD's in front of me, I'd post a few tracks.... I saw them live quite a few times when I lived in Los Angeles in my college days, they actually played on campus a few times. They were a power-house live, a tornado of sound - especially considering they were a two piece, drums and guitar/vocals.
you can listen to some samples over at RhinoHandmade
UPDATE:There Stands The Glass
has a posting of one of their songs, Lonely. A great choice.
