Dateline Jan 28th 2012: News from BoB Towers (Finally)


 So, hello. Where’ve you been? Oh, where’ve we been? Around...

Is it that long since 78/79 landed? Guess so. Have you got it? No? Quickly here, there aren’t many left. What’s been happening? Well Richard Buckner and Sacri Cuori were pretty ace, alone and together. Danny Champ and Richard Warren. Jason McNiff just last Monday at the Borderline. Taking Ben Folke Thomas to see Glen Campbell. The Loft. Pete Wylie being Pete Wylie. Jones and Simonon and Primal Scream doing ‘Jail Guitar Doors’. There’ve been moments but it’s been a hiatus, and now before nature abhors this vacuum too much let’s see some activity.

First activity is announcements from the record label of no less than three upcoming releases between now and May:


First off is a reissue of Trent Miller’s Cerberus (BoB 112). Originally self-released on his own Hangman Label in autumn 2009 it’s now getting a new push with a listed release date of 5th March. Visit his website and learn more about it.



Then we’re very pleased to be giving a UK and European release to Edward RogersPorcelain (BoB 121) originally put out in the US and Canada on Zip last autumn. This is Ed’s fourth solo album and as ever it features a plethora of New York’s finest. Due 2nd April.

And then, drum roll if you don’t mind, we’re extremely pleased to announce we’re putting out John Murry’s The Graceless Age (BoB 122) on 7th May. An extraordinary record. You may recall World Without End which John recorded with the old Memphis folkie Bob Frank; this is the solo album he’s been working on since. It involves a number of famed SF musicians including Chuck Prophet and it’s going to make some waves.

All that is just bare bones (and a few links) for today but over the next days and weeks we’ll surely be posting a lot of (metaphorical) meat.

Rivington Street - Richard Warren

Track 1 of The Wayfarer
From the Stripped- down Mixes available free as a cover-mount CD with the upcoming issue of Bucketfull Of Brains

A New Magazine, A Free CD: Oh Yeah


If you've been following our doings on the some of the other sites where we're active you'll have picked up that there's a new issue about to surface. And coming on the 11th October is our spanking new double issue.

Now those of you who've been paying attention for a while know that spanking double issues come with gifts, and this time we have one hell of a gift.

Our good friend RICHARD WARREN is about to release his new album THE WAYFARER, and it's an absolute corker. What's more having recorded it he's made a whole separate 'stripped-down' mix of it and given it to us. And we've stuck copies of it on the cover of this new issue. Plus we've really gone to town on stories, filled more pages, and bought in a couple of new young Turks (possibly stretching veracity there a little).

So not only do we have features on Richard but also:

THE BASEBALL PROJECT,  PHIL OCHS,  MATT PIUCCI,  DAN STUART & THE SLUMMERS,  BAND OF OUTSIDERS,  THE FLAMIN' GROOVIES,  MADAM,  DOG AGE,  JASON McNIFF,  JON LANGFORD,  PAUL COLLINS,  THE HOT KNIVES,and DENNIS DIKEN of THE SMITHEREENS

Not to mention a few wacky little pieces on other folk, and the strangest set of reviews you'll have seen for a while.

The mag will be available hither and yon but if you press the button below you can order it now straight from us and be sure of getting it sent to you as soon as it's published.

Prices inclusive of postage and packing:
UK: £4.50, Europe: £6.00, USA & ROW: £8.50
