Hey everyone. Here is some shit I wanted to get to or saw this week that I wanted to pass along:
- Did y’all know that I contribute to a couple of other blogs from time to time? It’s true. I am a regular contributor to Star Maker Machine. It’s a theme-based mp3 blog worth checking out. I’ve also recently become a contributor to the freshly relaunched Creative Loafing music site. I made my first post today. Do me a favor, go over there and make a comment of some sort about naked women and beer…let ’em know what they’re getting themselves into by letting me post on their site.
- Ever heard of 5 Dollar Cover: Memphis? Yeah, me neither, apparently it’s a faux-reality show that’s gonna be airing on MTV. The cool thing about it is that is gonna feature ninebullets.net faves, Lucero. Looks like that major label deal is already paying off. You go boys! Here is the trailer:
- Some good news has come down the pipe from Virgil over on Suburban Home Records. In the coming month we’re gonna see a new release from Drag The River, Bad at Breaking Up, which is a collection of 7″ only tracks, B-sides, their tracks from their split LP with The Dents. If that wasn’t cool enough, Jon Snodgrass will also be releasing his first solo effort, Visitor’s Band, which features guest spots by Two Cow Garage, Chad Rex, Joey Erg, Chris Pierce, Eric Powers, andothers. Here are some tracks from those releases:
- Finally, the folks over on Twangnation brought it to my attention that famed New York blues guitarist, Popa Chubby, is gonna give this whole country music thing a try with his wife in a project called Vicious Country. Out of the gate they’re covering Hank III‘s song, Straight To Hell. Not a bad way to start Popa! Here is the video:
