alphabet / break / could've moved mountains (+ alps) / demo / enmore / football

i've recently discovered the joys of reading the thesaurus (sad but true), mostly stimulated by the reading of a book called everything is illuminated by johnathan safran foer in which a ukranian is given a thesaurus to help increase his english vernacular. it leads to a rather interesting misuse of the english language (a la kath & kim). so in that vein...

a is for alphabet (see above)

b is for break, which we are currently having. lots of things on - exams, football world cup, trying to make new sounds, band camps. but not to worry, we'll be back soon cos:

c is for could've moved mountains who are popping by as part of their east coast tour. along for the ride is alps (newcastle?). we'll be doing a show on saturday july 15th at maggottville (on fitzroy st, marrickville) with pure evil playing on the night as well! we'll get more details and flyers and things happening post haste.

d is for demo, something we're doing a lot of lately. hopefully we shall have our tape ready for your aural pleasure rather soon. in the meantime you can always pick up a copy of our ep, out on soviet records. you can still get copies off us, paint it black or missing link. check out the soviet site for details of the new mail order jazz they're setting up:

e is for enmore, as in the enmore theatre, as in the enmore theatre on the 26th of july with sonic youth and love of diagrams. we're stoked to be playing this show, so if you've already got tix then come on down to see us play early (i mean quite early - 7.20pm). if not, it's $60 so make sure you're really very super extra-ordinarily definate before you invest.

f is for football. nuf said. well, on consideration, i'd like to reinforce the fact that like the late, great johnny warren: i told you so. in addition, i'm tipping argentina and spain to dominate at the pointy end of the tournament.

g is for gee whiz!

and on that nerdy note i'll sign off.

M orose because sonic youth and the thaw and alps plus tv o

N the radio the day before equals $116, alphabetising does get pretty tedious even when you try and cheat. Hi ktrina! :) Any reason for choosing tapes for yr demo?

heya lizzie
sounds like you've got it all planned out. start savin girl!

we're doin tapes because we think the warm loving hiss will add an extra special dimension to our songs (especially the one that's gonna be on side b). also having two sides goes well with the songs we're putting on, and tapes are cheaper than vinyl!

plus they're just more special than a burnt cd (which was our other realistic option, in light of our current budget) and we want to give them with love.
