Not too long ago, one of our Beardsley members was adopted by Portland, Oregon’s post-pop-punk band, The Thermals . He is now enjoying his new home in their practice space. Mr. Beardsley (which they named, “Paw Paw“), was created with the help of their album, “The Body, The Blood, The Machine” (which you need to check out because it totally rocks your socks off).
Mr. Paw Paw Beardsley (seen in the photo below), is wearing some stylish wool plaid pants! His hat and shirt are both made from… thermals.
Paw Paw has been having a blast with his new family – here is an update:
Paw Paw Beardsley jumped into Kathy’s arms when first introduced. They have really grown to be great pals over the last few months. Aren’t they just darling? Of course!
Recently, Paw Paw had an opportunity to travel with Hutch and Kathy and hang out at the beach. Little did they know that Paw Paw enjoys spending his time in public… naked. Yes, it’s true. Despite his lush brown beard and adorable getup, Paw Paw is a nudist.
Check out these great photos that Hutch took!
Can you find Paw Paw in the picture above?
Paw Paw (still naked) and Kathy sit down to work on some songs. He really sees to it that everything is in tune before they record.
On Wednesday, October 24, another one of our creations, “Lamby”, a plush, legless lamb met up with the band at their show in Chicago to join them for their U.S. tour. Here is Lamby at her photoshoot:
Thanks to The Thermals for giving us an update on their bearded addition. It’s great to hear that Paw Paw has fit in so well with his new family! He hasn’t gotten himself into too much trouble, although they did say that he likes to run around the practice space late at night when no one else is there and move things around on them. Hopefully Lamby will travel well with the band as they make their way to the East coast!
The Thermals are currently playing a bunch of shows in the U.S. You should check out their myspace page to see if they will be playing near you!
