We're getting airplay! The UBC station, CITR-FM, has played several selections from the album, several times! Are we excited? Yes!! Because in addition to the CDs we've mailed out to select university/college stations in Canada, we've already had requests for copies from others (US included), and you know we'll send you one, you hard-working DJ's, so e-mail us if we've overlooked your station. As our previous incarnation, Arthur Ellis, our self-titled demo and the two songs we did for the sold-out FacePlant 'Maximum Rabbit' compilation got airplay at a number of stations, including CKCU, CKLN and CJSR.

You know, most Canadian and US college stations stream live online. That means you can listen from all over the world. Please give these stations a listen and request us! Thanks in advance.

CD Release Party Lowdown

A month has quickly passed since the CD Release Party at the Anza Club in sunny mid-Vancouver, the ocean is green, the flowers are multi-hued and we had a really bloody good time. Total concept gig, in that a member of Arthur Ellis 2000 was in each of the opening bands.

Especially noteworthy were the performances by all; aural webs were woven by Public Online Terminal, shrimpmeat were suitably perky *and ever-hot*, Dave Shannon's trio was Solid Rock, like I have not banged my head to righteously for a bit too long really, and my god Facepuller are da bomb (as always). Paul's sound was way solid, and Facepuller only blew one easily re-clickable (tech.?) fuse.

And then there was smoke and spooky lighting and then Puff-Braddy pulled out his giant long didgeree-doo and Fish and Richard and Dave joined in with atmospheric noodles a bit not unlike the album intro to 'Dreams of Flesh and Sand' but actually it was 'Alien to Me', and I got to like, stalk in in a super creepy alien mask Richard 'n' me made from goop and paper mache, and do the thing. Great fun. Mofo, who co-produced the whole affair, was running video plus double slide projection overlays thematically associated, and all was Good.

And then the song ended and the crowd went wild and the power went out.

We got enough power back on soon enough to finish the set (did the 'suit guy' for 'Hidden Symmetry and 'Lizard', and worshipped televisions and money in spandex & hot pants for 'Homo Consumerus'), the show went on, albeit without thematically conceptually enhancing slides, fun was nevertheless had, and bubbly was consumed afterwards (with especial gusto). Video footage survives (hooray for batteries...) and alphomega is launched!
