Okay, the new AotM is up and running – Sue Ann Harkey‘s Listen Little Man. Ms. Harkey has a long and interesting history on the art side of the Seattle music scene and I think you will find this quite different from some of our other AotMs.
Been cutting tracks with The Icons at Conrad Uno’s Egg Studios the last 2 days. Got eleven tracks down and am very happy with them. What does that mean to you the music afficianado of today? It means that we will be releasing The Icons original, but remixed Masters of Disaster, along with bonus track of course, this June. Yipes! This was our first album in 1986. It didn’t get any attention even from my little dinky label and I was in the band. But soon it is yours.
The new album, tentatively and ridiculously titled Appointment with Destiny!, we will finish and overdubbing as I have time over the next few months. Five tracks are completly done at this point and I must immodestly say they rock like dogs. We will try to get that done in time for your Christmas shopping pleasure.
Now back to work.

Positive press response to The Green Pajamas’ The Red, Red Rose in less than an hour from Blurt and The Clare Herald (County Clare, Ireland), which immediately posted in Google News worldwide.
Fred Mills in Blurt:
"The stark yet propulsive tune is, in a word, haunting, recalling vintage Sandy Denny-era Fairport Convention as envisioned through a dark psychedelic lens – and we defy anyone not to feel a lump in the throat when Kelly gets to the lines, “One January afternoon/ They killed you in your school clothes.” Please listen to this song; it’s an important one. Much like Neil Young’s “Ohio” brought the Kent State deaths of 1970 into focus, “The Red, Red Rose” helps crystallize both the emotions and nuances of a tragedy that sometimes get obscured in the black-and-white world of news reports."

Been ill the last weekend but will get back on it. Our first ever video is now posted and amusingly, the picture does not move! It is a beautiful tune though, The Green Pajamas‘ The Red, Red Rose, written for suicide victim Phoebe Prince.

Nice review of The Complete Book of Hours in the Big Takeover.
