The This Machine Kills/ JR Ewing CDs are done and have been shipped off to Lumberjack. I should be getting my copies for mailorder when I get back from touring with Pretty Girls Make Graves on the 18th of May. The one sided 12" won't be out until June and maybe even pushed back to July because of its production costs and silk-screening time frame. I'll be keeping posted on that as well. The European 7" put out by Plastik Culture, Carmen Diablo, Bachelor and Wakusei should be available now. It is the same as the one sided 12" that Dim Mak and Sonzai are putting out. Sonzai Records out of Tokyo is releasing the CD and one sided 12" in Japan. And we got two shows coming up too with The Red Light Sting.

5/21/02 - Santa Barbara @ Bike Co-op w/ The Red Light Sting, Light The Fuse and Run, Dance Disaster Movement, Nya Suku and J. Chavez. 5/24/02 - Los Angeles, CA @ Juvee? w/ Red Light Sting .. contact for info. on both shows

We are also writing new songs for the split 2x12"/CD on Dim Mak Records with Envy and Yaphet Kotto. Be prepared for some more electronic jams as well as the hardcore stuff. Envy's two songs clock in at 16 minutes plus and Yaphet Kotto's I'm sure will be long.
