I was going through my ipod, and thought I’d share this. It’s Nuzzle’s demo tape. Nuzzle’s “Anchors Astreigh” 7” is the first record I posted on my music blog! And this demo contains a couple songs from that 7” (it’s very cool to hear these other versions). This tape was transferred to mp3 last year by Ryan (from Honeywell, Los Cincos, Volume 11). He sent it to me, and noted that after sending it to Nuzzle’s singer, he responded with “this is the first demo we made when I switched to vocals, …

When I was in college I’d spend a few hours each Saturday working for the Santa Barbara Food Not Bombs. A bunch of us would meet up at a friend’s house, then we’d designate tasks – like going to the farmer’s market to ask farmers to donate veggies and stuff, food prep, cooking, etc – and spend a couple hours preparing a bunch of grub.

I owned this comp, but (as my comment on the blog I linked to says) I lent it to a friend’s bf, and he never gave it back. He also snagged my Ruhaeda CD and Party of Helicopters CD. Luckily I still had the vinyl for those two! But the Summertime comp was only released on CD. I still have the booklet.

This came out in 2000. If you’re looking for late ’90s / early …

In our quest to compile everything by Three Studies for a Crucifixion, it came to our attention that they have three songs on the 49th Parallel compilation (as listed on discogs.com). But we only had that first song in the unofficial discography zip (includes the demo, and a live set). And the rip of that comp that’s cruising around only has 13 tracks…

Where were those other two songs? On the record, perhaps! So I borrowed the record from a friend. And lo, it turns out that the listing on …
