Cleveland Reading!


My zine buddy Mike Faloon has a new book out called The Other Night At Quinn's.  He's touring to promote it with Mike Fournier, another talented writer.  At their stop in the Cleveland, Ohio USA area, they're reading at Mac's Backs (1820 Coventry Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118).  The date is Saturday, July 21, 2018, and the reading starts at 7 p.m.  They invited Ben Stein and myself to read with them.  It should be a fun reading! It is free, so your money back if you don't like it!

Yeast? Warehouse Find!

An old buddy of mine recently surprised me by sending me ten copies of Yeast?'s Dick Bennett ep, a 7" record from back in 1994.  Long out of print, he had the copies leftover presumably from putting them on consignment at various Washington D.C. record stores.  I haven't had this record in stock since 2003 when the last copies were given away as part of the final issue of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus zine.  Recorded when Yeast? first became a power trio (our other guitarist at the time simply didn't show up for the recording session and subsequently disappeared from the band entirely), this clear vinyl 7" has four songs on it:  "Johnson Wants To Rant", "Generic Smokes", "Big Daddy Pane", and "Warm Fuzz".  Our buddy Ryan poses on the cover as a parody/tribute to P.J. Harvey's 4-Track Demos cover.  It is for sale for $5 postpaid.
