clearing up confusion in austin chronicle review

To clear up any confusion caused by the review in the Austin Chronicle:

The only members of Sunset who used to be in Sound Team are Bill Baird and Will Patterson.

Jordan Johns, Matt Oliver, and Gabe Pearlman appear on a couple of the songs on "Bright Blue Dream," but they are not members of the band or "collective" or whatever else this thing might be called. They made some awesome contributions to BBD but they do not perform with Bill anymore. Not to say they won't again someday, who knows.

Sam Sanford sings and plays on "Bright Blue Dream," and he performed with the group for all of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, but left the band to pursue visual art. The forthcoming disc, "The Glowing City," features significant contributions from Sam on acoustic guitar and harmony vocals.

Michael Baird came along on our last tour, "tickling the ivories." He will play a couple more shows before moving to Houston.
