Links for a day… (vol.33)

September 10, 2009
  • Finally, managed to find a report of Billy Gould speaking at the Heineken Music Conference in Tel-Aviv from the Jerusalem Post. Sample quote: “Labels used to be in it for the long term with an artist – they’d get signed to a development deal, and the label wouldn’t mind if the first record didn’t sell. The idea was to build a following, and by the third album, you’d begin to see the results of your labor,” he said. “There’s no way that would happen today. If you’re not a hit, you’re gone.”
  • The tour posters from the second leg of The Second Coming tour are now on sale at Secret Serpents.
  • Here’s a generally positive  Rock en Seine review from ClickMusic.
  • And a glowing review in French from MusicPlease here and another from Telerama here.
  • Chuck Mosley interview from the Charlotte Indie Music Examiner.

    The clickmusic reviewer seems pretty clued-in to the band and their tour so far. Makes a refreshing change.

    Still no poster from the Hove festival, the “Ratticus Norwegicus” poster by Martin Kvamme. Where can I find it? Anyone?

    @Griff, they’re signed and numbered limited edition serigraph posters. Not an open run.
    Although, I do think around $35-$40 would be reasonable.

    I have a Dublin poster. It is not numbered and I’m really wondering why, if it’s hand screen printed.

    It’s sad about the Paris’ poster but I totally agree with the reviews. 😀

    Everyone here loved to see them again in Paris, I saw some news channels talk about the event even though french people are not generally ok with metal bands. They prefer r&b, pop and varieties. FRANCE LOVES FNM !!! <3<3<3
