I just returned from a short trip to Montreal. I may end up going back over the course of the year, hopefully getting to see the Expos and Godspeed You! Black Emperor both play. No dramatic revelations or observations, really.
A very special congratulations to my friends in Umea, Krister and Ylva who just had a baby boy. Krister’s hoping he will be a Swedish rock star someday, just like Krister.
One-sided LPs…Early Day Miners will be out in a couple of weeks or so and features tracks a little more subdued than the rockers on their latest release, Jefferson at rest…Yume Bitsu artwork is being completed still, but we all know what we’re going to do for it, at least…The Six Parts Seven will come out in August or so, once Ethan gets the covers silk screened, this is definitely some fine instrumental music and you will be impressed…Aspera, Kind of Like Spitting, and Starflyer 59 are in the progress of recording…Brother Danielson has a concept and is getting ready to record…It is all coming together…

It’s been a quickly moving week, getting last minute details and issues setted for The Trouble with Sweeney : I Know You Destroy and Unwed Sailor : The Marionette and The Music Box.
FRIDAY…if you live in Philadelphia or the surrounding area, you must come to the following event or suffer forever in perpetual lack of coolness:
I Know You Destroy **Record Release Show**
This Friday (4/11) @ 9pm
UACA 847 N. Franklin St.
(Near 7th & Poplar)
Featuring Elk City, American Altitude and the Cruel Summer DJs
Find out why all of your friends will soon be talking about The Trouble with Sweeney. The record is just that hott.

Other exciting developments continue with Saxon Shore : Four Months of Darkness to be released to stores on 3 June 2003 in a digipak version co-released by Burnt Toast Vinyl and Broken Factory.
Hardbound book printing is in progress for The Marionette and The Music Box. Some of us may visit Iceland to see the printing happening; we’re at least excited to talk about it. Jamie and Johnathon are discussing possibilities of a film which is bringing big smiles to my face.

Starflyer 59 starts recording their one-sided LP on Tuesday. My old housemate and pal (not old pal, just old roommate) J. Edward Keyes has written a short story for the back side of the LP etching, all of you bookworms will be happy to know. His serial novel of sorts inspired The Dromedary Theme on the most recent Starflyer 59 cdep.

Damien Jurado, Dave Fischoff, and Adam Voith roll into Bryn Mawr on Saturday. I’ll see you there in the aftermath of The Trouble with Sweeney party. Yes, you will be going to the party. I thought I made that clear?
