Listened to an interview with King Cobb Steelie on Radio 3 this morning. (They’re celebrating 20 years as a band). I remember meeting them a few times around T.O. in the 90s when we were there all the time. Great band. Made me feel like it wasn’t too crazy to be putting a new record out after 17 years! And another good omen: CD BABY has sold out of FAMOUS LAST WORDS and it’s only been up on their site for 3 days…they just sent me an urgent message asking for a re-stock. That’s pretty cool…of course, they only stocked 5 copies. But this time they’re asking for 12. We’re moving up in the world.

As I set out running this morning the wind was blowing and the snow was beginning to fall. Josh Klassen’s spring storm had arrived…and it hasn’t stopped since…14 hours later. Uggghhhhh!!!!

Tomorrow the photo will be white again.

February 21, 2011. Holiday Monday. 7:15 AM. Temperature: -21 Celsius. Soundtrack: Joy Division – Unknown Pleasures.

I’d much bouncing around in my brain this morning on my 9K loop: Lyric fixes for Red Lips need to get underway, new songs and scenes for Saint Aggie’s need to be written, plans need to be made for the release of the new CT album in May…and for some reason I seem to be starting to formulate ideas for a new musical, though I’m sure it’s a bad idea to be doing that right now.

Must prioritize.

Captain Tractor is finally on Facebook, Twitter and Reverbnation. When I remember the login and password I’ll even update our Myspace page. Our new record, FAMOUS LAST WORDS, which is in the final stages of mixing, will be released in the spring of 2011.

  • A photo from another world… February 15, 2012
    Here it is. The first glimpse of the next cast of Saint Aggie’s ’84. Yes, the photo is bit grainy and slightly unclear, reminding me a little of a photo from early space exploration, an early moon probe, transmitted back to earth slowly via radio waves and taking hours to receive, decipher and print. Of […]
