I am excited to read about Nomo’s four hitter as the Dodgers opened up their season with a big 8-0 victory. And Nomo’s on one of my fantasy baseball teams, so that helped a lot.
Randall (of Tidal Wave Magazine and Jetenderpaul) sent me a special tour promo DVD with the new Sigur Ros video from the first untitled track on their ( ) album. I haven’t seen such a beautiful and haunting video in recent memory. Elementary school children are getting ready for recess as their teacher makes sure that they are ready to go. Then, they leave the building in their gas masks as they enter a sort of apocalyptic chemical wasteland to play. All with the ethereal, dreamlike music playing.
It’s looking like there will be a double 10″ version of Starflyer 59′s new album “Old” (with extra tracks) out on btv in the US…

More complete dates have been listed for Unwed Sailor’s spring tour with the Singing Mechanic. Be sure to catch them for their first US tour in more than a year.
Starflyer 59 will be playing an acoustic show at the gallery formerly known as Reset Art on Camac Street in Philadelphia this Saturday, 22 February at 3:30pm. It’s a special matinee show before they go up to NYC to rock. Ben is taking over for the show since I split town.

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.
