Kielty here with something that you REALLY don't want to miss if you are anywhere near New York City!
There will be a special performance in NYC by the Melvins and Cameron Jamie's films:
LIVE PERFORMANCE AT SYMPHONY SPACE
Cameron Jamie, The Melvins, and Keiji Haino
WEDNESDAY, MAY 17; 8PM
Post-punk band the Melvins plays the live scores to Kranky Klaus/BB/Spook House; avant-garde musician Keiji Haino performs to Jamie’s most recent film, JO. The performance will occur at Symphony Space, located at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street; tickets available at www.symphonyspace.org. Presented in conjunction with the 2006 Biennial.
Always the last to know what's cool.

IPECAC RECORDINGS, cutting edge!!!!!
Tickets still available for May 14th Irving Plaza in New York - General Patton vs. Rob Swift & Total Eclipse. This show WILL sell out.
We have a handful of VERY special GHOSTIGITAL US tour dates announced in the calendar section. To help promote the new "In Cod We Trust" CD and all things Iceland, Einar Örn (x-Sugarcubes) will bring his band GHOSTIGITAL to a select few US venues. Expect something good! like this:
TIVO alert! You folks who get US TV channels make note that PEEPING TOM will be making their first ever public appearance on the Late Night with Conan O'Brien show on friday May 26th just a couple days before the release of the debut album.
Hey folks! It's a big day here in Ipecac land. A great day for a doubleheader. Twice the pleasure!
First up we introduce you to Australian musical maestro Julian Curwin and his TANGO SALOON. This is a fun, adventurous record that puts quite a twist on tango. Julian mixes in elements of jazz/morricone/classical/improv and electronic music to create something that is completely unique and deserves a genre of it's own. Hey and guess what? A guy named Danny Heifetz, late of Mr Bungle is part of the posse of eclectic musicians responsible for this effort. Good on ya Julian!!!!!
The perfect record to release at the same time is our genre defying favorite , Mugison! Our Icelandic compadre follows up his critically acclaimed MUGIMAMA CD ( CNN and Paste both named it one of 2005s best) with the stunning LITTLE TRIP. Part score, part soundtrack LITTLE TRIP accompanies heralded Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur's film of the same name starring Forest Whitaker and Julia Stiles. Recorded at Sigur Ros' Reykjavik recording studio Sundlaughin (swimming pool), Little Trip features 17-songs/pieces including rockers like Pétur Grétarsson, a swooning cover of Tom Waits classic song Little Trip To Heaven and a live version of Mugimama's Murr Murr. A warm and twangy soundtrack and another beautiful gem from our Mugi. If you have not discovered him yet, now is the time.
Let's play 2!!

Sorry to say, but due to scheduling conflicts the Big Band show that we announced for the Irving Plaza on May 15th is NOT happening. However, the Gen Patton show on the 14th is still on and tickets will be available soon!
This had nothing to do with Carl Cox.
