Speak To Me Someone

To See The LightsThe rumours have been confirmed...Gene are calling it quits. :-( I'm so sad to see 'em go, but glad that I caught them live at least once, a couple of years ago at Lee's Palace in Toronto. ..."Martin Rossiter has confirmed that Gene's upcoming live show at the London Astoria will be their last, following over 10 years of writing and performing alongside Steve Mason, Kevin Miles and Matt James. No more live shows, and no more new material." ...[News from the You'll Never Walk Again Yahoo! Group.]

The Ted Leo site has gone through a redesign! [from The Big Ticket]...And if you haven't check his music out yet, what better place than to start with the 14 MP3's Ted Leo has posted on his site[under the audio section]

Bright Eyes are[is?] going on tour and will be making a stop-over in Toronto at the Phoenix Concert Theatre on January 21, 2005. [news from More Cowbell...oh, and Frank also reported this at 20hz]...This is the dude who went out with Winona Ryder for a bit. I heard his version of "Blue Christmas"; it was good, in a acoustic, country-ish sort of way, but I'm wondering what all the fuss is about?

There are some surprisingly good indie/alternative mp3 downloads at Abercrombie & Fitch. Who'd have thought? [from Soviet Panda]

Hamilton's From Fiction will be recording with Steve Albini at the end of February 2005 [from 20hz] Based on their mp3 of "Car Thief" available at their website which I'd heard during the summer, I've been meaning to pick up their E.P.....oh, and according to 20hz, From Fiction will be playing their last show in Toronto for 2004, with Uncut and The Fever[from NYC] at the El Mocambo on November 19th, which is this Friday. I'm so there... Well, at least I hope so.

...oh, and go see The Incredibles...because, well it's, umm...fantastic! You thought I was going to say 'incredible', didn't you?
