Well… sort of… Not much has been going on with CWS in the past couple of months. We DJed the opening at Blackbird Gallery for Ms. Lisa DuBrock. I discovered that playing 45s at 33rpm can be a lot of fun. For me, if not for the crowd.
Last weekend Foobar had a special guest DJ that put me to shame. Greg Cartwright (of The Oblivians/Reigning Sounds) spun hours and hours of hot, obscure soul. The man is a garage legend. The Outlaw Lovers LP reminds me a lot of “Time Bomb High School.” After his set, I got his address to send him a copy of the LP. According to the USPS, he got it today.
Speaking of 45s & organ-layered garage punk, I have been recording a solo single. I am going to do a small run of them, hopefully to be out by summer. As soon as I get it all done, I’ll post it all online for free.
Segueing to the subject of “Summer”, Chaos in Tejas has leaped to the top of the “Things I need to do” list of 2010. Austin will be descended upon by thousands of punkers all there to catch rare appearances by Bastard (Japan), Poison Idea, Subhumad (UK), Crow (Japan) Leatherface & Marked Men. Rumor has it that there MIGHT be a reunion by Talk is Poison too. The 5 day passes are all sold out already. Get on it, if you want to go!

Keep on truckin’.
