It’s Monday! Good morning.
65daysofstatic’s strangely conceived and crowd-funded album ‘Silent Running’ is out today on the incorrigible Dustpunk Records (still crazy after all these years). If you were kind enough to buy one, it should be winging its way through the postal systems of the global village to your doorstep. Copies are going as far afield as Dubai, Japan, Australia and Surrey. SURREY.
If you missed out, then let us remind you that we’ll probably never re-press it, and so you will never get to own one. However, the intangible, digital version is available NOW in the 65STORE as FLAC and MP3 downloads if you want to grab that instead.
For those of you who just want to smash it into your ears rather than buying it on trust, it will be streaming on 65daysofstatic.com for 24 hours only, starting about now. Heraclitus said ‘You can never jump in the same river twice’, but in this case, you can listen to it as many times as you like.
Graham Greene wrote Brighton Rock, an excellent novel set in Brighton, made into an excellent film with Dickie Attenborough and an okay re-make. Greene said, ‘In human relationships, kindness and lies are worth a thousand truths’, and so let us be kind to you and lie, and tell you that there are plenty of tickets left for our end of year performance of the Silent Running Re-score at the Duke of York’s cinema in Brighton on the 25th November. Oh snap! It’s SOLD OUT. Bad luck.
(If you do have tickets, know that we aren’t onstage till something like midnight, so be ready for that).
In other news, Paul/POLINSKI is taking his new album ‘Labyrinths’ on tour this week, at the following choice dates, giving the rest of us some much needed peace and quiet from his endless anecdotes about Lulzsec and the initiation ceremony for the Manchester branch of the Masons. Dates below:
• 17th November – Oxford. Modernist Disco at The Cellar. With 1877, Lion and Coloureds DJing:TICKETS
• 18th November – London, The Windwill, Brixton. With M+A (more Monotreme Records reprobates):TICKETS
• 19th November – Crunch 2011, Hay-on-Wye. Making music amongst all the awesome book talk:TICKETS
And all that remains is to say merci, thanks for helping us make Silent Running a success this year. Particular props go to Joe’s brother for giving us a last minute lift to the post office in his van, and all the staff at the London Rd Sheffield Post Office for letting us essentially move in for a day.
