There is a show going on now July 17th-21st called 5x5 Video Nights at the Riviera Gallery 103 Metropolitan Ave in Williambsurg/Brooklyn NY of video works made by Takako Tymkiw. The videos are for Skywaves "Dream You're Alive" and "Suicide", Readymade's "Lightstrands", The Emerald Down's "Heavier Than Ether, Lighter Than Air" and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's "At My Door"
The Don't Say Slow 7"s are finally here and they sound amazing! Order them from Amendment for $4 postage paid. They are a limited pressing with silkscreened covers so hurry up, they will be gone soon.
A tape of unreleased Skywave songs has just been released on the super cool label Best Kept Secret in Italy. The songs are very dark and the track listing goes as follows- all alone, walk my way, dreamscape, you left me a letter, baby it's just you, space, don't say goodbye, if i were a man, cool breeze, heartbreaker, and you wonder why, and coming after me. You can order the tape just by sending $5 cash concealed in an envelope to:

We just got back from our Ontario tour with Alcian Blue and had a blast! Slept in a Wal Mart on the way up, smashed the neck off my bass in Toronto, last tour it was London, and played a cover of "You Made Me Realize" with tourmates Alcian Blue, two basses and four guitars, it was a wall of sound for sure. We played with some great bands Currently In These United States (a spazzed out funny version of pavement), Kid Sniper (XXX indie rockers), Sanseiru (Power rock and roll) who covered one of my all time favorites "My Little Underground", and Trebendle (Math Rock machines). At the Whippet Lounge we got told we were way too freaking loud and we should just play at a nice Motley Crew loud and then the hippies would love us??? Thanks Matt for hooking up the show at your house and Jonny D for being rad as can be.

The show with Vehemence Realized turned out to be a really cool, Greg from the Patsies was the sound guy and the Velvet Lounge has a new look. Vehemence Realized changed their name to just VR and they got a drummer so now they are even more intense and the songs hit home.
The Past shows have been going great! The show with Swiss Dot, Sonambulants, and Seat Team was really great although the Sonambulants cancelled (too bad) and the sound guy didn't show up it was a synth pop extravanganza. Seat Team and Swiss Dot's performances were great! I am now in love with them Swiss Dot girls!
