  • This new noise-rock “supergroup” will hopefully do for noise-rock what Cream did for blues-rock: Get the bands lots more coke. Featuring noise divas Mark Solotroff (Bloodyminded) and Jason Soliday (Behold! The Living Corpse), along with Blake Edwards and the brilliantly off-kilter Dylan Posa (ex–Cheer Accident) on drums, the group's self-described “laboriously slow heavy-metal dirge” is, to put it mildly, not for the weak of heart.

Status - 12/27

- New Super Eight Loop recordings/re-mixes are coming along very well. 2008 should be a productive year on that front, as I am getting rather anxious to reach S8L100...

- I am slowly getting more items up on eBay again

- I have updated the live show calendar on the BLOODYMINDED MySpace page to reflect all known shows through February 2008, including a just-added solo appearance at Wierd on January 16

- I am doing my best to catch up with the numerous e-mails and MySpace messages that remained unanswered following our U.K. trip , my bronchitis, a busy work period, and the holidays. I appreciate people's patience!

Animal Law pix on Flickr

James (BLOODYMINDED) just sent me a batch of photos from last Thursday's Animal Law show, which are now up on my Flickr page.

Status - 12/24

My Internet was down for the last 36 hours, probably caused by the high winds that we were experiencing in Chicago. In any case, I do not expect to be at the computer much for the next couple of days, due to Christmas, and all... More news soon... Happy holidays!
