Wednesday, October 18th, 2006 This year has been very quiet on the Groovy Times front with the only material issued being the Fiskadoro â€˜Wilfordâ€™ EP, and â€˜Sunburnâ€™ cassette. But this will be changing very soon. First the holidays shall bring us the CD reissue/rethink of â€˜Christmas on the Brazosâ€™ by the Spies which will include new material.
Following the holidays we will get a major jumpstart as The Year of the Vampire will bring a new commitment to Groovy Times. Fiskadoro is in the process of recording their first album (tentatively titled â€˜Houston DNAâ€™). We hope to have this out early in the year along with a Groovy Times Website to keep track of the other material coming which includes-
Pablo Unidos & The Sound of Revolution
New ep, a follow up to the album they released on Groovy Times in 2005. This will see a new direction for the band, percussion heavy. Getting away from the strict dub of their debut. Pablo (ex-The Spies) also guested on the Boomchasers album, released this past year on Ice-Nine.
New ep including 3 remixes of songs by The Kimballs (Tom Burns ex-the V.T.O.) and other material as well, brought to you from Steve Ditch (The Republic of Texas).
Shocking new free improv band featuring Rich Kimball (Fiskadoro) on guitar and Tom Burns (The Kimballs) on drums. Neither of these individuals has been involved in anything like this before. Think John Coltrane, not John Rotten. There should be an ep out hopefully spring.
Other stuff is still in the planning stages. More news on that when it comes.
Time, I absolve myself of your vow to vanquish me.
