The bearer of bad news here! Sorry to say that after the show on Friday March 10th Orthrelm is being forced to cancel the rest of their tour dates. One of the guys has a lingering health issue that needs to be addressed. Very sorry to those of you that were hoping to get your noise on with the boys. I highly recommend loading up on redbull putting their latest CD "OV" on grabbing a tennis racket, disrobing, and get a neighborhood air band contest going. The next best thing to having the band there live.

Kielty, back in the swing of things here!
So we admit, we dig lots of things about Iceland. Who doesn't? You already know and love Sigur Ros, Bjork and our very own Mugison. Now we present to you GHOSTIGITAL with their latest release "In Cod We Trust". But of course there is a story behind the band. GHOSTIGITAL is the brainchild of the unpredictable Einar Örn of Sugarcubes fame. This release is packed with heavy hitting, like minded, oddballs like Curver, Mugison, Sensational, Dälek, Marke E Smith and more! The music? Well it is hard to describe but easy to enjoy. What would you expect from Einar? Welcome some sun light into your life by enjoying "In Cod We Trust"!

Well blow me down! This one caught us off guard. The FantômasMelvins Big Band has decided to do a little mini tour in part of Europe in April! No new record, no real reason, just doing it because some promoters offered em a bunch of cash to dust it off. Look for the dates in the calendar section. This is not part of any bigger tour. No plans to tour other parts of the world and not sure if any dates will be added to this European run. It is very rare when the Big Band is able to get all the musicians available at the same time. And to answer your question, the reasons these cities were chosen is because this is where the offers came from. Don't blame us if they are not going to your city or country. These musicians do this for a living so they go where they are offered good money. Private jets and full body massages are expensive, you know?
