Rough Travel

{Pre Ordered. A live record from Bill Callahan, to be released at the end of March. Featuring songs recorded throughout his carrier, from Smog To Bill. Shit, take a look at this Best Of looking tracklist:

Our Anniversary; Diamond Dancer; Bowery; Held; Say Valley Maker; In The Pines; Cold Blooded Old Times; Rock Bottom Riser; Let Me See The Colts; The Well; Bathysphere.

Aside from a couple of additions, that would pretty much be the list of songs I'd put on a CD for someone who had never heard him before. Amazing. Weird that there's nothing from the newest album on there though... and I Break Horses wouldn't go amiss}

A big thank you to WALTER (see post below) for making me aware of this.

Mid Week

{A few really great things happened today. The first is potentially, and hopefully, really great, and I can't really talk about it yet. The second is also really great, and much more certain, but still I can't really talk about it yet. The third was that after all this, I went to ZEBULON with MM to see PURE HORSEHAIR play, and drink Seirra Nevada's; and while sitting around waiting for the second band some bright-spark (and I mean that in a completely complimentary way) decided to play the entire Mississippi Records ABNER JAY album; "THE TRUE STORY OF ABNER JAY". THAT I can talk about, and was a great way to end the day. Thanks to everyone who helped make a really awesome day happen, in various different ways}

P.S I wrote this at 1am, so technically all the above is really: Yesterday.
