Cripes! We are a mere day or so from having Jimm McIver up as the March AotM – presuming Jimm gets back from Siberia and gives us the all-important files. GIVE US THE FILES!! In the meantime you may – no must – rock with AL BLOCH one more time.
Speaking of rocking like Martian dogs in heat, The damn mighty Icons finished tracking six songs at Uno’s last night and they are better than any songs recorded in the history of recording, the history of the United States, the history of …. Well, HEY, I think they’re pretty good.

What’s not to like?

Well, I mentioned we are delaying Book of Hours – it’s because this will be a 100% real CD just like you buy at Walmart and I am having to get the GMR machine set up. In the meantime Jimm McIver has consented to move up the most excellent Jim and the Boxes – Polaroid Angel to be our March AotM. If you’ve not heard it you are in for a treat! The Mighty Icons are going to Uno’s this Wednesday to rock like mad demons.

Found the old GMR mailing list from 20 years ago recently and have been sending postcards out for fun to see who is still around.
Got this response recently:
Just yesterday I was re-placing a Jeff Kelly/Green Monkey promo postcard for Private Electrical Storm into the little slot in the wall that it has stayed for the past 18(!) years and I wondered, "Ash Wednesday’s pretty cool, Wonder what these guys are up to?". Lo & behold a NEW postcard shows up today, and it’s from Green Monkey Records!! Good to know you’re still plugging away. Listening to the Al Bloch streaming album now and loving it. Site is put together well and I look forward to catching up. Thanks for getting in touch!
Love & Kisses,

The Green Pajamas‘ Poison in the Russian Room made the London Times Top 100 of 2009. I know it ain’t a GMR release, but I did tell you it was "A Green Pajamas Masterpiece!" on June 14, 2009 in my review on Amazon. I’m stickin’ with it. If you haven’t bought it yet, there is something seriously wrong with you. On your way to the emergency room, make sure you pick up two copies.

Was in Chicago this week doing Argosy University business. Got snowed in and stayed an extra day. Flew back in time to make The Icons rehersal with special Guest Superstar Glen Slater of The Walkabouts and Melting Fish. The ever-so-mighty Icons are going in to Egg Studios to record with Conrad Uno on the 24th. Time to Rock, baby.

Hmmm…think The Complete Book of Hours is gonna get delayed a month while we work out some design and distribution details. Not to worry, we will have a fantastic March AotM no matter what.
