I’m excited for this week. Ester Drang will soon be en route to the East Coast. Come see them play in NYC at the Mercury Lounge on Thursday, 15 August. They’ll be playing with Owen (Polyvinyl Records). Hope to see you there for the rock.
Kind of Like Spitting are working, working, working on their one-sided LP. They just left yesterday for a big tour and will be in Philadelphia on 26 August. We’ll be finalizing plans for the release then. Incidentally, the show is at the North Star Bar and Denison will be opening. It’s an all-ages show, so be sure to come out. Also, Early Day Miners have finished the audio for their one-sided LP and are considering the artwork now. The Six Parts Seven will be recording the audio for their one-sided LP at the end of the month in Ohio. Unwed Sailor will be recording their one-sided LP in early October somewhere in Europe right before their October European tour. There have been some tentative discussions about recording in either Oslo or Copenhagen with some of our friends there. Ester Drang will be recording audio for their one-sided LP later this month after their East Coast jaunt.

I’ve been working on an Unwed Sailor poster for their October European tour. That’s the official excitement these days. I’m anxiously awaiting the Philadelphia Songs cds form the factory and some posters to promote the album and tour.
Today, I’ve been listening to the new full-lengths from Kind of Like Spitting and Seldom, both of which are highly recommended releases.
I forgot to mention that during my flight into Allentown, PA on Sunday, I sat next too one of the members of Shaggy’s backup band. Many other members were also on the flight, but, alas, no Shaggy. I guess you could call it a minor rock star sighting.
Are you preparing yourself for the touring assault of Denison Witmer and The Trouble with Sweeney? They are starting a leg of their autumn tours together. We’ll get the good word of rock out to the masses yet. Enjoy the ride.

Unfortunately, the Dodgers lost to the Phils yesterday when relief pitcher Giovanni Carrara hit two batters with bases loaded to give the Phils the 2 run commanding lead. It was a good trip to the stadium and we managed to find seats with a good view. Nothing like a good afternoon baseball game during the week.
For our European friends, there should be some upcoming treats. Unwed Sailor will be touring Europe in October, as well as recording material there for their forthcoming one-sided LP. Ester Drang’s Goldenwest will be released by Swiss label Gentlemen Records in the fall, as well. There are also discussions underway for a new Circle of Birds ep with a European supporting cast. I’ll let you know how that progresses.
The release of the White Trash Inc. (Orchestra) 7″ on Norway’s Milk & Honey records is now available in Europe. I’ll have copies available soon from the on-line store, along with their release of a Soul-Junk 7″.
