To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.


James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Following the breakup of Archers of Loaf in 1998, Eric Bachmann started work on a solo project that he named Crooked Fingers. The first release of this project, a self-titled release (Crooked Fingers) of various songs he had written, was put out by warm records in 2000. It was followed shortly after by a second album on Warm, Bring On The Snakes, which brought him some attention.

Following the release of Bring on the Snakes, Crooked Fingers signed to merge records, who released his Reservoir Songs EP in 2002, an EP of cover songs by artists such as Neil Diamond and Queen. Red Devil Dawn followed this in 2003, his first full-length for Merge.

Dignity and Shame was released in 2005, a concept album based around the lives of bullfighter Manolete and Lope Sino, a Spanish actress.

Crooked Fingers has toured the usa, Europe, australia, and new zealand, both as a solo act and with a full band. They were featured on National Public Radio’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and on NPR’s World Cafe in May of 2005. On the 2005 U.S./Canada Tour, Matt Gentling, former member of Archers of Loaf, played the bass.

Long time fan of Eric and company. Crooked Fingers kick so much ass, they'll make your butt crooked. These guys started in Chapel Hill, NC.
