Yeah, so, anyway, a coupla months back, Cloudboy
and I decided to form a band/group/collective/thingummyjig
We went and called ourselves Ice Bird Spiral
And, even though we've both got maximum-velocity jetsetting life-styles (oh, and
kids!), and spare time is pretty much an abstract concept for the both of us, we decided that we could no longer bear to be passive onlookers/consumers during something that we both consider to be one of the most inspiring/exciting musical eras since, er, the last one
Making some music again (even though I, uh...I'm not a musician) feels like the right thing to do on so many levels right now that it felt stoopid (and darnright mentally unhealthy) to deny its gravitational pull...I think CB had been having some similar thoughts about making some joyous sonics again too (feel free to jump in here, mate)...
There's a point, I think, that we've both reached, where it's no longer enough to just be a fan...that you have to get involved
in some way...that you have to reach out and beyond merely writing about this groovy shit...
Anyway, pleased to announce that one of our tracks "Temperature Shanty
" is due to appear on a forthcoming compilation on Michael Donnelly's
imprint, one of Australia's coooolest psych-slingin' labels and home to the almighty Brothers of The Occult Sisterhood
. If you've not checked this band/label, then I suggest you fuckin' do so now, least ye turn into, like, yawnsville, man. This is one righteous imprint, I'm tellin' ya.
Hey, I think you've prob. realised by now that I'm pretty excited about this.
Michael D seems to be pretty down w/ our sound (wh/ has blown my mind), so it's looking like after the comp. we're prob. also gonna be doing a CD for MYMWLY, which is, to be honest, a fucking honour, far as I'm concerned.Just gotta, y'know, record the damn thing now
