[21 Jan 2009]
i went skiing.
Again - sorry for lack of updates. i went on holiday for a week skiing in italy for free. Amazing. I ate and drank too much, was sick one due to something dodgy (not alcohol) and skiiiiiied fast. It was cool.
We have loads going on here at Holy Roar HQ. Firstly im moving flat next week which should be stressful (i mean 'fun') - moving temporarily to East Dulwich in London for 3 months, although my initial impression suggests i'd like to live there longer. Nice area, good amenities. Lets see what happens.
We are an official media partner of The Great Escape 2009 - we may or may not have a stage for a night. Watch this space. It should be special whatever happens.
The Holy State cd should be ready within a day or two. It will look amazing, I wont spoil the surprise, but pictures are forthcoming v v soon!
On a geeky level, we have decided to really try and step up with packaging in 2009. We are, of course, hugely proud of everything we have made so far, with many people commenting that some of our releases are like 'mini-vinyl LPs' - but now we want to take it to the next stage. Not only do we consider it vital in the current musical climate - it also gives us a challenge and, well, makes it all that little bit more fun! So watch this space for incredible stuff with the Rolo Tomassi EP reissue, the Youves cd and a secret, yet-to-be-announced project that should see the light of day sooner rather than latter. Believe me -as soon as I have the green light I will be singing and dancing about it!
Whisper it - Throats might have a couple of shows on a VERY BIG tour in May! They are also currently writing towards an ep.....
....there is also whispers that Rolo Tomassi have recorded a medley of Throats songs.....
Dont forget -

if you dont come you are stupid.
Finally, the following releases are VERY VERY close to selling out. Its a weird coincidence, but there's a handful of each of the following -
- Ergon Carousel cdep
- Dananananaykroyd - Sissy Hits cdep
- Rolo Tomassi 'digital history/beatrotter' 7"
-Happy Holy Roar vol 2 tape
If you want any of these I wouldnt wait a couple of months or anything.
