For all those concerned, Keyes is alive and well in NYC. It’s been way too long, man.
Matthew, the btv mail order slave, is moving into the btv compound for a while. This means that your orders will be shipped out much more quickly. I’ve also been tweaking the catalog to try and eliminate titles that aren’t regularly in stock, easy to get quickly, or that I don’t really like.
Starflyer 59 pre-orders were processed last night, we’ll be sending out the vinyl this week, as soon as the rest of the pressing arrives from the plant.
Bosque Brown : Plays Mara Lee Miller is still underway. We’re having some productions delays for some reason, but I’m hoping to have some copies here for the holiday season.

I went to see Sufjan play last night and it was great to see so many friends in the crowd. Props to the Witmer on bass and banjo in Sufjan’s band.
Rich is coming to visit and we’ll go to see Starflyer and Pedro the Lion on Saturday with one-sided LPs in hand. They’re getting overnighted and should arrive today. Finally!!
I am now officially out of Damien Jurado :This Fabulous Century LPs on white vinyl. The remaining orders will be filled with what copies of black I have. If you want white, Damien is the only source.
I failed in my quest to order some of the Turkey and Gravy Soda from Jones Soda. They sold out before I could get a chance to get some. Maybe someone out there wants to set up a little trade? I’ve got some records….
By the way, Jess wrote an article on the PA State Demolition Derby Championships.
Late afternoon update…we’ve been found guilty, guilty of finally having SF59′s one-sided LP done. What a long road it’s been. Thanks to United for turning these around quick. Starflyer 59 : Portuguese Blues, four songs on the A side, only one re-recorded for their I Am the Portugues Blues full-length. A short story by J. Edward Keyes and an amazing design by Jesse Beamesderfer.

I’m trying to overcome some technical and scheduling problems to get Starflyer 59 vinyl ready for the band on Saturday. Hopefully everything will work out and this record will finally be out. Saturday, see them at the Trocadero in Philadelphia.
The new album from Japanese instrumentalists Mono, Walking Cloud and Deep Red Sky, Flag Fluttered and the Sun Shined is highly recommended. It’s licensed to Temporary Residence in the US and I’ve been playing a lot over the last week. Check it out.
