Things are now going pretty full swing for 2003. There is lots of activity with one-sided LPs. The artwork for The Six Parts Seven LP is completed and we’re going to start the printing soon. Kind of Like Spitting are still working on their Phil Ochs covers. Ben says that he and David are going to record with Ari from the All Girl Summer Fun Band on her 8-track. Dan Smith and Starflyer 59 are both itching to begin the recording of their LPs.
I visited The Trouble with Sweeney at Miner St. studios with Producer Brian McTear. They were in the throws of mixing and tweaking when I arrived. Brian was working some serious magic on the recording of “Snitch.” The plans are to have everything completed and mastered on 13 January.
Ester Drang have finished their recording. I haven’t heard Infinite Keys, yet, but plans are for Burnt Toast Vinyl to release the vinyl version on 1 April. The cd version will be on Jade Tree.
Plans are underway to release Honey for Petzi’s soundtrack to Angel’s Camp in the US this May. Honey for Petzi are from Switzerland and their first full-length, Heal All Monsters, was recorded with Steve Albini and released in Europe on Gentlemen Records. It’s available in the on-line store from us. More news on that once it is ready.
