Chasca visited Studio 1A at KUTX 98.9FM in Austin in October of 2015. “So Long, Crassus” is one of four songs they performed in studio, taking much of the staff by surprise. The station has since had a few things to say about the band:
“There’s no dial to turn down the searing sexiness. ...a distinctive, outrageous blend of rock, glam and cabaret fabulousness that would make Minnelli proud. It’s as if Dr. Frank N. Furter possessed the show, hijacked the mothership, and hightailed it back to transsexual Transylvania with light speed fueled by T Rex, New York Dolls, and a dash of Queen‘s soul fire. ...sultry, sizzling, sweaty high-energy rock, amped even higher with electrifying ensembles a la Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie”
DaveTV episode #45 features Ulrich Ellison and Tribe! You can catch DaveTV streaming at austinpublicaccess.org/watch/streaming10 or in Austin on Channel 10 or on UVerse Channel 99, every Saturday at 5:00PM.
In a small corner of North West England, country music history is about to be made. Two rival bands, The Finger Lickin Five and The Undertakers are set to battle it out to win the prize of the century - a trip to the musical mecca of Nashville. Only more than careers are at stake tonight. The FLF’s singer Deano has an ego the size of Texas and a libido to match. His girlfriend and the band’s guitarist Jo has no idea that he is about to ruin everything for the sake of a quick fumble with the rival singer’s missus. Besotted with Jo, it’s down to their portly, mop-headed roadie Billy Bob to bring it back from disaster. Only one thing is sure: This town ain’t big enough for two bands. - Written by John Maxwell

Paul Collins Film presents Chasca’s “So Long, Crassus,” a tale of a soldier’s defiant feelings toward his leader. If you’re not completely up on your Romain history, Wikipedia offers:
“The Battle of Carrhae was fought in 53 BC between the Parthian Empire and the Roman Republic near the town of Carrhae. The Parthian Spahbod (“General”) Surena decisively defeated a numerically superior Roman invasion force under the command of Marcus Licinius Crassus. It is commonly seen as one of the earliest and most important battles between the Roman and Parthian empires and one of the most crushing defeats in Roman history.
...Crassus marched his army directly through the deserts of Mesopotamia. His army clashed with Surena’s force near Carrhae, a small town in modern-day Turkey. Despite being heavily outnumbered, Surena’s cavalry completely outmaneuvered the Roman heavy infantry, killing or capturing most of the Roman soldiers. Crassus himself was killed when truce negotiations turned violent. His death led to the end of the First Triumvirate and the resulting civil wars between Julius Caesar and Pompey.”

“I feel that this song is a change of pace… Everyone wants to fall in love and, when they do, they want that special someone to know! This song cuts down to the basics when it comes to love, which is how it should be, and it’s stated so clearly in the chorus.”
Ben’s also not merely a one trick pony. He adds, regarding his move from Oregon to Nashville, “I’ve spent two years in this town writing songs, networking and better understanding myself and what I want in my music career. ‘I Can’t Wait’ has helped jump start things for me.”
