Posted in Uncategorized on August 9th, 2011 by Goacho

Hello All!

Sorry it’s been so long, it’s been crazy busy this whole year.  Here is just a bit of news on what’s been goin on.  BonniBonita has been playing shows sporadically since SXSW, and have  since takin some time off to record  a full length as well as re-organize after the departure of founding member, Anita Wilson. She will be on the album, but she will no longer be in the band. Best wishes to her on all her future endeavors. The Wesley Hartley and The Traveling Trees/ Audrey Ryan split 7″ has been put on hold for a little longer (Sorry.) It will see the light of day soon. Robert Davis of Damage Pants/Gil San Marcos and Robert Chacon Jr. of  Master Tape/Cholo Gun have started a punk band called Hüsky Düdes and will see a release by the end of the year on Bombay Cove Records, be on the look out for shows soon. Kyle James Smith of Master Tape/Damage Pants/Esbat has been playing some shows with his new country outfit playing under his given name. Babel Fishh is back in the States for a while and is playing some shows sporadically with a bevvy of new split releases. Evak1 has a new e.p. out with Edison entitled, Six Pack O’ Death, out now on Decorative Stamp .  Katy Klapuch of  BonniBonita has joined Austin’s electronic/punk/syth-core outfit Laserz and has been playing regularly around Austin and surrounding areas. And last but not least, our dear friends at Bombay Cove Records have re-released our long out of print cd-r, Y’all, on a 10 in. lathe cut record and will be re-releasing Esbat‘s out of print cd-r on 7″ lathe as well. Both are part of Bombay Cove‘s continuing Lathe Cut Series, hand-cut by Peter King of New Zealand. check the series out if you got some extra dough. find them at this link: BombayCove Records
