The Drought

A little glimpse of our Ballard project in the works – I just went through The Drought and put this collection of quotes together:

encompassing the fading skyline

the sounds of the lions baying among the dunes

the lines that once marked its boundaries

the film of cetyl alcohol

fingers feeling the blood-streaked neck of the peacock

No-one would attempt to rob him of so small a pool of water

We’re moving straight back into the past

mats of dried kelp to help keep out the cold

the embers of the burnt-out train sent their long plumes of smoke into the sky

his chipped, creamy voice

archaic minerals sealed behind glass cases

Honey and Salt play a muscular brand of+ post-rock and prog, while Fragile Rock and their insane puppet wizardty are like nothing you’ve ever seen before – unless you’ve already seen them! Here’s the fab flyer:

Free Week Show! Stuff and things!

Hi all –

Looooooonnnng time since our last update – appy polly loggies to all. We have not been idle – we’ve played a buncha local shows, numbered properly in our seemingly endless chronology:

532) Sun. 10/28 Psychedelic Brunch at the Yellow Jacket Social Club

533) Saturnalia Fest 2018 at Sahara Lounge Nov. 16-18 2018

534) TV show taping for Casual Bandage 11/26/18:

…annnnd- – -we’ve booked two more: we’ll be playing a Free Week show at Barracuda on New Year’s Day 2019 evening and we’re playing the North American Space Ritual fest at Come and Take It Live celebrating 50 years of Hawkwind with Michael Moorcock, Alan Davey and Nik Turner as well as many others on March 29-30 2019.

We also have been working on new material and will be re-entering the studio shortly. We’ve decided that the new album is going to be a concept record based on the work of JG Ballard (“War Fever” from the last record was kinda our trailer for the project…!) and we’ve decided it will be entitled “Ballardesque”. Already pretty much ready to go, for you Ballard fans, are pieces based on the short story “The Singing Statues”, the novel “The Drought” (aka the revised/extended version of “The Burning World”) and the text experiment “Love (A Printout for Claire Churchill)”. We’re meeting to discuss the project 12/12 and recording will begin early in the new year. It’s gonna be a long process though – so two of the other songs we’ll be recording are earmarked for release sooner in the form of a single or compilation tracks, we shall see.

Still have T-shirts left from the tour – if you’d still like one, let’s barter, contact us. Does anybody actually read these things? If you’ve made it this far, email us for a free gift. Oh, and here’s a swell poster to distract you:

New 2x LP/CD! New T-Shirts!

Hi all!!
     Well, we’re back from tour safe and (mostly) sound. 10 shows in 11 days all over the Midwest. We had a great time and our expectations were surpassed. So now seemed to be a good time to let y’all know that the record is indeed officially out and available for ordering and we have plenty of our new T-shirts left over from the tour merch table.
     The record (double LP or CD or digital) is available for mail order from Big Cartel, and we’d love for you to order it from them, so we get credit for moving units! We’ll probably have it for sale sooner or later on our own Bandcamp page, and who knows, if demand indicates we may even make some cassettes, but for now, to order follow this link:
     And, we do have the new shirts available in two colors and many different sizes. The ladies’ shirts proved surprisingly popular on the road and are going fast, because they look so swanky:

And, since that image is backwards (Angie took it in the mirror!), here’s the men’s shirt (in purple):

Shirts are $20 plus shipping and are available from us directly through Bandcamp here:

     Phew! Okay, school’s starting up again and we need some time off, so no shows for a while. We’ll be doing a special brunch event at the Yellow Jacket Social Club in Austin on the 28th of October and we’ll probably be playing the Saturnalia festival in November, looking down the road a bit.
Cheers y’all!
yer pals in
