It’s been a really hectic time. Apologies to everyone in Boston who missed out on seeing Yndi Halda. They had to cancel the show due to van problems. They made a valiant attempt at taking a train to the show, but it didn’t work out. They’ll make up for it the next time they’re in the US, for sure. Thanks to everyone who so fully supported Yndi Halda’s month in the US, everyone who came out to the shows and helped with places to stay, and especially to Bojan for booking, Alex in Williamsport for booking them at a new venue, Tim in Lancaster for taking a chance at a gallery show, Nathan in Virginia for getting two solid shows, Jamie in Jackson for delivering shirts, Johnathon for helping set up the Tulsa show super last minute, Jason for driving them around, and Commissioner and Willis for loaning gear. I’m sure there are more folks who should be thanked, too, that I may not even know about. It was great getting to see them one last time in NYC with Caspian at Piano’s on Saturday. It was also my birthday and a big crew of us attended the Phillies/Dodgers game earlier in the day. Burnt Toast Vinyl flashed briefly on the scoreboard and we were excited.
There are some Yndi Halda buttons and t-shirts from the tour that are going to be on sale in the online store, in case you missed them on tour. The shirts are basically the design that is in the webstore now, but is white on heather grey and a second design which is a crane on either cranberry or raspberry shirts, depending on the size. If you’re itching to buy, order the existing shirt and e-mail to say which new design you’d like and we’ll work it all out. The crane shirts are hand-printed, by the way.
Starflyer 59’s Dial M was mastered to lacquer and is in the process of being plated. Denison Witmer’s Carry the Weight is en route to be mastered to lacquer with a bonus track. We’ll be having a special test pressing sale for both very shortly. Test pressing subscribers to the Starflyer 59 Ghosts of the Future 7″ set will get first dibs on the Dial M test pressings. This will be a super limited edition run for both albums and you will get to hear the vinyl at nearly the same time the bands and I do.

Foxhole is the band of the week on the What to Wear During an Orange Alert blog. There’s also a short interview with Foxhole. Foxhole is tentatively planning a short tour at the beginning of May that should loop down through the south from their Bowling Green/Nashville base.
Test pressings for Unwed Sailor’s Little Wars are good and the vinyl should be on track for their touring efforts in late March/April. The vinyl is a 2xLP with 2 additional tracks as the second LP. This will also come with a digital download certificate good for a free mp3 download of all tracks on the vinyl version.
Emperor X is planning some dates in late February and throughout the spring to support The Blythe Archives Volume One and preview some material from the other Blythe Archives.
Dr. Randall Stephens (of Jetenderpaul fame) has his first book out from the Harvard University Press. The book is based on his doctoral thesis and explores the history of Pentacostalism and the Holiness movement in the United States and their affect on American culture. He’s a history professor in Boston at the moment and there are still plans for recording more Jetenderpaul material.

Happy New Year!
The third shipment of the Starflyer 59 Ghosts of the Future 7″ box set has been sent to all subscribers. These should be arriving shortly. I’ve gotten a few e-mails so far asking, but this shipment should have 2 7″ (numbers 5 and 8) and the box. It was supposed to have 3 7″, but due to a pressing schedule error, the 3rd 7″ was bumped from the schedule and scheduled to run after the plant’s holiday shutdown. I started to ship what was available prior to the holidays. The final shipment will have the remaining 4 7″ and special inserts. It should be going out in early February in time for Valentine’s Day. Again, the first 100 subscribers will be getting autographed inserts and we haven’t forgotten the promise.
