First Official Blog

OK, so we're back.

Before I get too far into the news which you may have seen, I want to acknowledge a great loss for a pretty cool lady. Karen Nugent, the poor lady who has to edit my stuff with the Boston Blues Society, lost her dog yesterday. As a dog person, and for someone who truly respects Karen, it is safe to say I feel or you Karen and naturally wish you the best.

On to more happier, yet still bluesier news, I was just handed some new Ten Foot Polecats (www.reverbnation.com/thetenfootpolecats ) material. The guys have nailed down an RL Burnside cover "See What My Buddy Done" (complete with a string breakage) and their first known original called "Tears On the Windshield".

We make no bones about digging that sound the Polecats lay down, so we're looking forward to the new CD whenever it may come out.

Having just received the new copy of Blues Review today, though the residents of The Love Shack are happy to hear Watermelon Slim now has the cache to go into semi-retirement and that Chris Stovall-Brown will be replacing Michael Newbury as Slim's touring drummer, we're not to please to hear about the country album or the semi-retirement.

We encourage you all to check out our friends Blind Billy & The Spectacles at Thirty First Main Street in Ayer Mass this Friday (http://www.blindbilly.com/gigs.html) and The Stubbies doing their blues jam "thang" (http://www.myspace.com/mondaynightbluesjam) around Massachusetts.

Also in a fit of shameless self promotion, Georgetown Fats & The Growlers demo is available at our myspace site (www.myspace.com/georgetownfatsandthegrowlers)
