Skyline and Space City Rock put us in some very good company

First off, we made The Skyline 50 which is pretty cool. You can find us in Part 1 but the rest of the list is pretty choice:
Then, as if that wasn't awesome enough, Space City Rock reviewed three Grey Ghost releases which included our good friends Mlee Marie (Mlee Suprean of Hearts of Animals' acoustic persona) and Ben Murphy (of Bright Men of Learning) as well as our humble entry into the series. Considering my* admiration for Mlee and Ben that is really awesome. Anyhow, very nice stuff and well deserved love for our good friend John Sears who has been behind the series. Here is the link:

* I'm given to using we a lot but Charlie chided me for speaking of the band in the plural.

Our Beloved Proletariat will be closing it's doors in February

The LP4 outside the Proletariat

Here in Houston the LP4 considers two clubs home - Rudyard's and the Proletariat. Sadly ADR at Skyline network announced today that The Proletariat (where the cover for All Things are Light Was shot) will be closing on February 4th 2008. Very sad news indeed. Thank you Denise, Dunnock, Shawna, and all the rest the staff past and present for giving us five great years of music and memories. We'll be drinking it up until the bittersweet end,


Worst Monday ever: Proletariat to close...

More reviews/articles for your consideration

Ned Raggett at Allmusic reviewed All Things Are Light (4 out of 5 stars) saying "...a core point about the Linus Pauling Quartet isn't merely that they're a great psych band, but a great band period, able to embrace a lot of styles and moods and work them well" and comparing Enchirito to Psychic Powerless era Butthole Surferes is one very nice compliment indeed.

Also, Skyline posted a very cheeky "review" of Grey Ghost #48 - HAWG! YUSSSSS! \m/

This week super duper limited edition LP4 CDR - Grey Ghost #48

Yes, the limits of vinyl made it so that we had to drop the 11-minute two-chord lecherous pill-popping dying-in-a-hail-of-bullets complete-with-Otis-Redding-Rave-up biker-epic HAWG! Next week will see a very limited release of this song as Grey Ghost #48 and will be sold only at Domy books for one week only beginning Sunday Dec 2nd. The Grey Ghost series only publishes 13 copies of these and sells them for $2. Once they are gone, they are gone.

Above is the mock-up of the cover which appropriates the cover from the Party Owls' classic 7" EP Rock Out!
