CD update: Rob posted a message saying the live CD clips will be added to the web site soon. Unfortunately, Jeff had some AV issues (he stepped on the wrong guitar peddle between the chorus and second verse) so "Not Real" will not be on the Live demo. However, it will definitely be on the next studio recorded CD as it is a hit.

Next up for The Protocol: band photo shoot for the press kit and more songwriting.
