CANNANES NEWSLETTER NO 17 JUNE 2000
of you name it on (http://www.slabco.com)
this is Frances rather miserable ode to New York......
P Smith from Cats Miaow will be drumming with us on
upcoming shows in Australia....
Beat The Cannanes in an odd poll conducted by some
strange people at WSEU Connecticut in the USA. (This does not
surprise us one bit as they are rather popular and we of course
are a rareified acquired taste which many people have yet to discover).
Cannanes marched along with 250,000 others for reconciliation
issues with Indigenous Australians over the Sydney Harbour Bridge
on May 28 and later that day performed live to air on Sydney radio
station FBI. Strange
Recordings OUT NOW!!!
WILLIAM / MISERABLE 7" OUT NOW
ON 555 Records PO Box HP41 Leeds LSX 4XN United Kingdom 2 Cannanes
songs-whats to say except they're not too bad. One features Stephen
coughing , some rather gorgeous trumpet and has a cover designed
to appeal to Scrabble enthusiasts. The other side celebrates the
glory of whinging
AID ABROAD: A little help for East Timor; Now this
is a little 22 track beauty- Cannanes have 2 songs but there's
a lot of other good stuff-My current favourites are the first
track by the Steinbecks and the track by MJ 12. You can try and
get a copy from Drive_In Records firstname.lastname@example.org
ON THEIR WAY:
Living the Dream,
rock ern roll cannanes style Now beautifully mastered by Rafter
Roberts in sunny California we hope it will not be too long before
this one sees the light of day but.........
at an Unknown Rate: indiepop cannanes style The Cannanes
with Steward A glorious collection of songs recorded with Mr S
on one of his world wide jaunts. Coming along nicely this is expected
to be available by the time we get to New York to play with Steward
and Even As We Speak.
The other one (as yet unnamed)
The Cannanes with Explosion Robinson-sophisticated pop for drunken
aesthetes Featuring the master loop keyboard and production skills
of ol ER this one has some pure gems especially the ode to Felicity.
was just looking at the Slabco website (http://www.slabco.com),
and they have this fantastic MP3 of a soon be released collaboration
between The Cannanes and Explosion Robinson.
Theres not much info on it, so, I was wondering if you could fill
me in on what the release is, etc?
now I guess you know as much as us though I hope you received
a more personalised answer-I shall check with the appropriate
staff member-Basically stephen and frances lurked around Explosion
Rs house in Brooklyn and went out on the town with him on a number
of memorable occasions and wrote some songs and are sending him
bits of stuff with great difficulty by various unsatisfactory
technologies. It would be a damn sight easier if he would just
get over here but as it is we shall have to make do.
At long last we are getting around to updating our HISTORY site
at http://morpho.dar.net/~cannanes/ DISCOGRAPHY is up to date
and the GIG section should have been done by the time you read
this. Section by section over the next few months the rest of
the site will be updated to include MP3 music files and hopefully
a video clip or two! Jerome you are grouse!
WEB SITE! And for those
of you who would like to be more in touch with Cannanes goings
on Andy has set up an Australian home page at www.thecannanes.com
to list upcoming gigs as we confirm them and provide a little
info on recent goings on in camp Cannane. Another part of this
new site will soon include works in progress MP3s; check it out.
Lots more news but we are out of space.
