News: A Few Bits And Bobs

Aloha! Mike Hawaii Interview

Mike was interviewed for a Hawaiian radio station, and it's now available to listen to via podcast. The interview starts at around the 38 minute mark. By the way, for any parents amongst you, it is quite an explicit show so shield your childrens ears...

More Love From Rolling Stone

WorldWide Suicide was voted #11 on the to 100 songs of the year list, RS had this to say....

The president -- "writing checks that others pay" -- gets it in this top-shelf blast of bad news and fighting spirit from the Seattle band that refuses to die.

Less Love From

The Avacado made the list of worst album covers of the year, checking in at number 16. They had this too say...

Pearl Jam's longtime green party advocacy has led fans to believe the avocado is a nod to the Avocado Declaration. Initiated by Ralph Nader's 2004 vice-presidential running mate Peter Camejo, the declaration is named for the fruit that's "green on the outside, green on the inside." Okay, fine. But this cover is a bad gradient, a Larabie future font, a miscast drop shadow, and a clipart image that we've actually seen used elsewhere (twice!). If this was 1973-- and the music doesn't go out of its way to suggest it isn't-- Hipgnosis would be really disappointed.

Eddie At Cubs Camp?

The Chicgo Tribune posted an article with a tiny little snippet of PJ News...

It doesn't take much prodding to get Horatio Sanz to talk about his beloved Cubs. "It's hard being a Cubs fan, but it's something you can't help," he told us when we caught up with him in New York on Friday.
Sanz is such a Cubs fan that he's already signed up for the team's fantasy camp in Scottsdale, Ariz., next month (funnyman Jeff Garlin and rocker Eddie Vedder also are expected to be there).
In the meantime, Sanz returns to Second City this week to take part in "The Second City That Never Sleeps: Letters to Santa" charity event.....

There will be two more releases from Santa's Sack before X-mas so stay tuned for more goodies

P.S. - One of them will be a long standing unfullfilled request from the old bootlegs site...
