Release Day!


18 years in the making, the 2-disc, 44-song Some Small History is available in stores and online today. just look for the beautiful Amy Sillman art gracing the cover. The physical version of this release is a limited edition, while the digital jams live on forever of course....

this Friday at Local 506 Portastatic will appear in a special new configuration featuring Jim Wilbur as usual but also Ivan Howard of the Rosebuds playing several instruments! and we'll be pulling lots of old songs off the new comp for their first-ever performances...

on the stereo today:

Lambchop - I Hope You're Sitting Down
Ornette Coleman - Sound Grammar
Stereolab - Chemical Chords
Supergrass - The Best of '94-'04
Jennifer O'Connor - Here With Me
Coltrane - First Meditations

trying to drown out the panicky thoughts in my head about a world with creepy hawk John McCain and freaky flat-earth Sarah Palin running the country....

Can't wait to get the disc!

What's the mood in NC regarding the elections? I wish I were still there to cast my vote. It's going to be utterly wasted here in TX. So much for "every vote counts," huh?
