Update - September, 2009.


Some 2009 Shows posted on SHOWS page.

Plans to do another full length release in the future are still in the works.

Some of you may recognize this site as the design of the old Dead City website. Until the New AWKWARD THOUGHT website is complete and put online in future this site design will serve as the official AWKWARD THOUGHT website. The Awkward Thought link to the left is still active and you can still find out current data about the band here. The current Dead City site at WWW.DEADCITYRECORDS.COM will always have a link to the Awkward Thought website.

The new DEAD CITY website has a store E Store for quick and easy online ordering of all Awkward Thought Merchandise.

STATEMENT from John Awkward Thought-
On October 20, 2005 the greatest man that ever lived who was also my best friend passed away. His name was Ted Franko and he was my father. Some of you may remember him from back in the early 1990's when he had a band and played at a few punk shows around the area and at ABC NO RIO. It was all done in good fun. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has offered condolences through these rough times. Not a day will go by that I don't think about my father. Thanks to all that touched his life. He was hated by no one and loved by all who knew him. He can never be replaced. Most of my friends knew him and I thank you for the support you have given me.
