manoman june turned out to be quite a month, and while july won't be so hectic for me performance-wise, on the homefront there's a whole shitstorm of stuff brewing...
at the end of the month we'll be moving out of this loud ass roach motel and into a bigger quieter place on the far north side of chicago...so only one more month of putting up with constant distractions, lots of roaches, and a crosstown bus ride.
friends visiting-spencer from austin and david from boston-i'll try not to get too drunk....linklater's animated version of PKD's 'a scanner darkly' will hit theaters....and the silver jews will come to town at month's end....if only the cubs could win a fucking game already!
hopefully i can get michael c ford's chapbook 'to kiss the blood off our hands' w/ bonus mini chap 'the marilyn monroe concerto' out by the end of the month and follow it up soon after with steve dalachinsky's 'trust fund babies'.....
machines are humming here at HQ and finally after 10 years of big talk- i've finally got my record label up and running.....it's called the silver wonder recording co.
here's a list of our first releases:
swr01- robert o'neal- shadowboxing
swr02-steve dalachinsky/loren connors- thin air
swr03- abe gibson/paul giallorenzo/brian dibblee- live at 3030
swr04- abe gibson/alex wing/bill mackay/jayve montgomery/brian labycz-5 gtars
swr05-fred lonberg-holm/eric leonardson-tba
mike woodfill will be designing a website that we hope to have up pronto and you can purchase discs there. check out the other site mike designed: www.unicornmountain.com
so if all appears quiet this month- i assure it is not, under the surface of things, i'll be churning out the goodies to you fine folks.....
