I met up with Denison yesterday afternoon and helped him load up cds for his autumn tour. He has the live tour-only cds with him and covers are arriving on Friday, so most of you who see him on tour will be able to get these cds.
Some very exciting Unwed Sailor news…at least for us…Unwed Sailor’s The Marionette and the Music Box will be released on 11 March 2003 to stores on cd and LP from Burnt Toast Vinyl. The LPs will be available beginning in January and the cds will be available from the band for their late winter/early spring tour dates.
Ester Drang plans are being finalized with the band entering the studio on 3 November. Plans are for this full-length to also be available in March in stores with LPs available beginning in January and cds from the band during their tour dates.
I’ll be seeing U.S. Maple play tonight at the Khyber in Philadelphia after I meet up with The Trouble with Sweeney as they leave for their autumn tour. JD, I’ll be calling from the show to let you hear a bit of the rock, even though you dissed me and didn’t play me any Pretenders or Stones on Tuesday night.

It’s been a long time since my last web log entry. Things have been extremely busy. I just returned from a last minute trip to Puerto Rico for work. Sadly, I missed out on The Six Parts Seven on Sunday and Kind of Like Spitting/Denison Witmer on Monday. Tragic, but Willis recorded it on minidisc, or so he claims. Last Friday was my birthday. I’m 29 now, for anyone keeping track.
Denison Wimter cds are en route from the manufacturing plant. They are expected tomorrow or so. Keep preparing yourself for 24 September release date. These will be widely available in stores and will be available from Denison on his autumn tour dates. The live cds and booklets arrived from the manufacturing plant, but no covers yet. These should be printed next week and will also be ready from Denison on his tour.
There is a lot of one-sided LP action happening, but the second in the series isn’t ready for release just yet. The Six Parts Seven and Ester Drang are in the studio today recording their songs.
I’m praying for a settlement in baseball. By the way, after hovering near the bottom of Indie Rock baseball, I moved up to 5th after Odalis Perez’s spectacular game last night, his shutout and game winning home run. Go LA. Chris from soundsareactive is also an LA fan; he released Soul-Junk’s 1957 cd, among other more experimental and jazz based recordings.
taking my nose back to the grindstone…

It was a busy weekend, but lots of excitement. Thanks to everyone who came out to see Ester Drang play. They left from Philadelphia last night to drive straight through to Oklahoma. They’re sadistic folks. My good friend Jeff Cloud (Starflyer 59, Velvet Blue Music) was also around this weekend for some general fun and rock goodness. It’s always good to have some old friends around.
I glimpsed the beginnings of Yume Bitsu artwork for their one-sided LP. Adam promises that the music is being remixed and will arrive soon. I’m getting anxious for the next LP in the series to come out. Whichever is finished first.
I’ve been working on LP artwork for Unwed Sailor and cleaning up the cd artwork for them to repress in time for their October European tour. I’m also anxiously awaiting the arrival of Denison’s cds from the manufacturing plant. I’m also hoping that there won’t be a baseball strike, but somehow feel that it’s inevitable. Very sad.
