two public announcements :
1 my friend joanna's band, time's tide (yes, smiths fans!), is playing tonight at 10:30 at lit lounge in new york. i think she sounds like alison statton of ymg; find out for yourself why don't you? what else could you be doing on a monday night? ("working"? yeah, me too.)
2 friend to this website loaded knife has released their second single, "normal teenager / berwick street." john peel called them "a courageous step into the unknown"; i call them the crossroads where negativland and double-dee and steinski meet. best of all, you can hear both of their singles right here.
