TEXAS PSYCH FEST
Thanks to everyone who attended or helped with the Ptolemaic Terrascope
presents Texas Psych Fest in Houston
on July 26-27. Between the Houston and Austin shows, enough money
was raised to help the Terrascope publish a new issue before this
October's Terrastock. Highlights of the shows were many, including
a blistering Fest opening set from The
Mirrors, the reunion show from former International Artists
recording stars The Golden Dawn,
and the first (and most likely final) live performance from The
Dunlavy. The Dunlavy live experience consisted of Scott
Grimm on guitar joining the John Cramer-led Project
Grimm. They opened with a jaw-dropping 18 minute medley
of Project Grimm & Dunlavy songs (FYI: "Rob Walks In,"
"Mercury" and "Scott Dewey" were the Dunlavy
songs) followed by Scott moving to bass for a set closing version
of The Mike Gunn's "Holger (Couch of Woe)". I wasn't
the only one in attendance to get chills. Both nights were recorded
and Aural Innovations will have available for download a show
featuring performances from all bands. Check www.Aural-Innovations.com
for more information.

Look for the Fleece Records booth at this year's Terrastock in
Boston. If you're planning on being there, be sure to come by
and say hello.
SPLIT LP SERIES TO DEBUT LATE 2002
Look for an upcoming series of split albums (as in vinyl) to start
later on this year. Up first will be a split between The
Last Bastions & Rotten Piece. The Last Bastions are
Charlie Ebersbaker (Linus Pauling Quartet) and Mike Switzer (ex-Slight
Surface Noise, William Switzer). Their Grovel and Wait
release in Lazy Squid's CD-R Of The Month series was one of the
most mind altering releases I heard all of last year.
Up second will be a split between Scorces
(Christina Carter & Heather Murray) & Migrantes
(ex-Charalambides Jason Bill and Caroline Vickers).
Sometime in 2003 expect a split between Austin's ST-37
& San Antonio's Crevice (featuring
And I may be getting WAY ahead of myself, but volume 4 will feature
Austin's incredible Winslow(maybe
my favorite live band of the moment) and Linus
Cover art for all albums in the series will be done by soon-to-be
ex-Houstonian Kanako Sasaki (she's
moving to NYC at the end of August).
