The band played shows in and out of Long Island, released two full lengths and produced one music video, "Till Death Do Us Part".

Wind Up Toy[edit | edit source]

In 2004, Nick entered Wind Up Toy with Tom Spartinos, Chris Blatchly and others. He left after a short stay in it.

Almost Famous[edit | edit source]

After the dissolution of Code: Adrenaline, Nick spent the next months recording local bands, and writing material for his solo acoustic project, Almost Famous. It's first album, Starting Over, alluded to Code: Adrenaline's farewell album, Just Getting Started. In June of that year, he unveiled his one man band to the public and released his first album on an Indie record label, Underdog Records. In the next months, he toured the Long Island area and during this time, became good friends with Robbie Hassett. Robbie Hassett played the similar Acoustic Pop sound that Almost Famous was known for, and Nick recorded Robbie's first and last solo demo. Nick had a second physical release, a three song Demo, which was released at shows. Almost Famous is continued today, however, is dormant as Nick and Robbie are busy with their Rock band, Life Between Sleep.

Kirk Fogg's African Adventure[edit | edit source]

During his solo career in Almost Famous, Nick also began playing with a Grindcore band, Kirk Fogg's African Adventure. The concept of the band in itself was a joke, however, it attracted a large following. Kirk Fogg had two EP releases, but finally called it quits in late December, after many of the members were busy with other things. Their last show was at Christmosh at the Vibe Lounge in Rockville Center.

Life Between Sleep[edit | edit source]

Nick's newest project, Life Between Sleep, is a Rock band that includes Robbie Hassett (from Guilt Like Gravity, GunsLikeGirls, Robbie Hassett (solo project), Go Quest, and other bands), Chris Blatchly (from Wind Up Toy, and Kirk Fogg's African Adventure) and Jay Scalchunes (from Days on End). They released the Life Between Sleep Demo in 2007 and 2008 and played Taste of Chaos' stint at Nassau Coliseum as well as the NY date of Warped Tour 2008.
