ROOMMATES ON SLUMBERLAND / WHAT IM UP TO
yo dudes - happy to announce that the roommates songs from those tapes that no one has cuz there was only 66 made and im pretty sure i have like 20 in my room collecting dust (and value). Well, those are now being compiled on a 7" through the great label Slumberland Records. I've corresponded with Mike (slumberland) a number of times over the years just exchanging kind words about what each other has been up to (he obviously being at what he does for quite a while now!) and I'm pleased that we are finally working together on something. His label is impressive, what he does is all on his own, and hes done some great things for some cool bands. I'm thankful those Roommates tracks have found such a cool home.
I've been busy winning at poker... (not)
So if you are still waiting for your package from the Guv Luv store, you should be getting it soon. I've thrown in a few extra goodies for the wait you all have had to bare. Enjoy.
Apart from kicking off the new year with getting the Darlings stuff going again (new rhythm section which includes Ryan and Jesse from The Scuzz band) I've been deep into a new project with Matt Delong.. who has kindly come back to Canada for the moment to enjoy the charming slush and shitty nightlife of Toronto. Avid NGNL readers will remember me mentioning a project called Yacht Club once or twice.. This is something matt and i have been wanting to do for years now but with him losing teeth in LA and me being on the road with FU its only been talk up until this point. It's not punk, and it barely has any real instruments (guitars are present, and maybe a few live drum tracks played by matts dad). I guess thats all I'll say for now about that besides that George Micheal could def have a good wank to it.
