* Suicide Squeeze is now taking pre-orders for a Coathangers remixes 7" featuring Dan Deacon's "143" remix and Judi Chicago's take on "Arthritis Sux". Only 250 were pressed on green vinyl. Five hundred more black vinyl copies are also available. Another Coathangers 7" will be out late this year on Die Slaughterhaus records, meaning they are getting priority over Adrian vs. Predator. Any excuse to bring that up...
* This AJC article says The Judies will try to carry on with different frontmen from different bands. I don't miss my old job as a crime reporter for a newspaper, so I am trying to avoid sharing my opinions on this situation. I'm merely trying to correct yesterday's assumption that the band is now defunct.
* Old news, but The Woven Bones got a well-deserved 4 out of 4 stars for their new LP from the L.A. Times. Woven Bones will be back in Atlanta this Saturday at The Earl.
* Older news, but my main musical inspiration, Joe Jack Talcum, will be appearing at Athens Pop Fest this August along with other heavy hitters like Quintron and Miss Pussycat, The Wedding Present, Go Sailor, and Mission of Burma. Also scheduled are some Georgia-based favorites like Cars Can Be Blue, The Humms, and Gold-Bears.
