Shawn Nagy sent on some close up pictures of the "Tools Of Our Trade" T-shirt. New pictures are on the Etc. page.
November 2, 2008 Yes, I'm still here. I'm just dodging "robocalls" right now (Ohio is a "swing state" after all).
Ashley Thomas sent on another batch of cool stuff for the site. It's just taken me ages to get it loaded. Specifics:
As a result of reading the review that Ashley included, I realized I'd had an incorrect listing on the singles page. For some reason, it
never struck me that both songs on Explosion Of Taste were on the same side. Side two is a demonstration of making your popcorn. I also
got reminded recently that there's a small backwards track at the end of Wow Flutter Hiss '86. I've updated the Singles
Page with updated info on both.

Got a new poster, this time it's for a show poster, this time for an upcoming show! Ancient Chinese Secret will be on
the bill for The Rizdales' 1st Annual Roots Roundup on August 10 at the The Cadillac Lounge
in Toronto. It's a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. Thanks David (for the poster and the heads-up)!
Also corrected the listings for "Malfunction". The songwriter credit was listed as "Dundrell". That's not a coincidence. "Malfunction" is
a cover of a Dundrells song called "Melinda".

The new Atomic 7 site, Atomic 7 Brand Ladies Shoes, is now live.
Couple of hints for you ... See the star lighting up by the "7"? You might want to click it. And you may want to check out "The Lavinia" as well.

OK, here's a big update. Peter Hudson sent along photos of a bunch of Shadowy Men posters he saved from Vortex
Records in Toronto. They're terrific, some of the best in the collection. They're now part of the
Posters Page as well as a separate Photo Collection page with a little more
info about Peter. I also updated some credits here and there because Peter recorded some Shadowy Men songs like
"Reid Does Neil" and "Faster, Santa Claus, Ho Ho Ho". Thanks Peter!
A cassette called Smash '83 came out with a Crash Kills Five song that was NOT taken from their single called "Oddy Knocky". I checked
with CK5 drummer Alex Koch, and it was a legit release, so it's got an entry now on the
Crash Kills Five compilations page. Thanks for the info, Alex!
Got a note from David Millians about the King Cobb Steelie CD Junior Relaxer
(Don Pyle was a member of KCS for this album). There's some studio dialog buried before the first song. Thanks David!

Not a big update, mainly just some housekeeping (cleaning up some dead links).
One other update ... in the entry for the Brain Candy soundtrack, I'd noted
that the theme song wasn't a Shadowy Men song, and that Don Pyle was guessing it was Craig Northey who recorded it.
Well, Sean just dropped me a note to confirm that - the theme is indeed a Northey song called "The Pill Battle". Thanks Sean!

Alex Koch (formerly of Crash Kills Five, and currently with Tony Balony & The Rubes) sent on a great picture of
him and Brian Connelly, and alerted me to some new Crash Kills Five pictures that Don Pyle came across. Updates
are on Alex's page and Don's page. Thanks Alex and Don!

Added a page talking about an album called Schlagers!.
What? Two updates in three days? Yep. This one's a bit smaller. Added a new FAQ entry about S-Men music
being used by TV Ontario and cleaned up the Pictures Page to add info on Don Pyle's "Trouble In The Camera
Club" and add in a little pulldown menu. Hey, they can't all be giant updates.

After a five month lag with no updates, you'd probably expect any update to be pretty big. You'd be right.
Added some pictures to the erin leah pryde's Atomic 7 and Ancient Chinese Secret picture pages. They're pictures
of some flyer handed out at an Ancient Chinese Secret show and a great Atomic 7 poster. Thanks erin!
