TOTAL SMOKE...THE BAND WHOSE NAME IS A SYMBOL
Me, Jason, Mark and Bill spent 4 hours yesterday, post show, putting together our next 2 LP's.....one working title is "Ladies Cheese Making Atellier" (don't ask...) Both these new albums kick ass and hopefully 1 will be out in time for the Birdman Sound 20th Anniversary on August 5th or 6th. We will be playing a show to commemorate that event and more on that later. Not sure coming up which Thursday yet, but we'll also freak the tourists out as we we're gonna play a free outdoor show at the National Gallery in the "Spider Pit" in late July or early August. Maybe you can pay close attention to this blog (as in watch for the date at the gallery once set) and come see a free show instead of getting sucked into the "Ottawa vortex of overated, way to expensive, every weekend's a fuckin' excuse for a festival depression", which seems now to be the sign of summer every year here now. By my estimation, this is far more ho hum than the never ending road construction that historically has defined Fat Cat city.
On an entirely different note, I just gotta say that The Starfuckers album
(just out on Holy Mountain)kicked my ass right up over my shoulder (and made my tired back feel better) !!! Geez Louise, how did I miss that mother 20 years ago...YOWZA!
