Belle and Sebastian return to the US for a brief
tour, including stops in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto,
Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin and Indio, CA. Tickets for
most of the shows go on sale this weekend. For more detailed
the date you want to see.
Q: I cant find your records anywhere.
A: Yes, you can, youre just asking us on the wrong day
Following the tumultuous switcheroo from our previous primary
distributor to falling into the welcome arms of ADA once again,
youve probably had a hard time finding some of our records
these past several weeks. And please dont say, I
wasnt really looking because that just hurts our
feelings. Well, now that were finally up and running
in ADAs system, Matador titles old and new shall be
plentiful in the finer record shops across the USA. If you
are still having trouble locating your chosen fave, please
let us know. Not via the bulletin board, via e-mail. OK?
We can happily confirm that Mary Timonys new album
is called The Golden Dove and shall be released
in May, accompanied by a tour of all the places that matter.
If you live somewhere else, dont be offended, thats
just a form of hyperbole, we meant nothing personal by it.
Point is now available in North America and
most of Europe (UK release date is 25 February). Go to the
video section to check out the Cornelius interview where you
can hear and read (with subtitles) what inspired him to make
his latest masterpiece. To top it off, you get a chance to
stream five different commercials and music videos. Weve
also decided to extend the contest until 2/28 since we just
got a package from Cornelius label in Japan. Theyve
generously offered special promotional items to add to the
winning grab bags. These are not for sale and manufactured
in Japan so theyre hard to come by, folks. Give
it a try.
Apologetic note: this contest is limited to US and Canadian
residents. If you think that is unfair, look at the bright
side: outside of those countries no one is stupid enough to
play Creed records on the radio.
Keigo Oyamada and band are currently rehearsing in Tokyo for
their upcoming world tour. Japan dates have been announced
(check tour section for details). As
of now, it looks like he will play a few showcases in the
UK in May (these dates will be up shortly) and head over to
the states in June.
Fresh from reading his new book Hot and Cold at the prestigious
National Arts Club in NYC, the hard-working Hell is finishing
the luxe artwork and liner notes to the upcoming Time
just down the hall, as we speak. Almost simultaneously he
is the cover boy for the new (Feb. 2002) issue of The Wire
magazine. The 2 CD/32 song Time will be released
in the US of A on March 19.
For more info on Richards publicity juggernaut and news
on upcoming readings, etc, including his upcoming March 2002
book tour of the UK and France, be sure to check out his personal
a crazy one-night stand opening for Ike Turner in NYC in January,
the Plastic Fang onslaught begins in March when
the Blues Explosion play a quick two-night stand on the west
coast, March 10 at Bimbos in SF and March 11 at the
El Rey in Los Angeles. More dates
in April and May are being confirmed as we speak. The first
European single and accompanying video from Plastic
Fang is the track She Said (not a Beatles
or Cramps cover, but much better than anything either band
has done recently.)
Belle and Sebastian
Belle and Sebastian have completed their new album Storytelling,
music inspired by director Todd Solondzs (Happiness,
Welcome to the Dollhouse) mind blowing film of
the same name (or at the very least, inspired by the circumstances
of being commissioned to write and record a soundtrack album.)
As you may have seen and heard, theres quite a lot of
press/tv coverage for Storytelling, so we encourage
you to see the film and form your own intelligent opinions.
(That said, if you didnt like the movie please tell
someone else; were tired of hearing the same complaints
over and over again. If the popcorn was stale and the guy
sitting behind you wouldnt shut up, Matador does not
owe you a refund.) Storytelling
opens nationwide this week.
As for the soundtrack, there isnt an official street
date yet, but were shooting for around the same time
as the next Belle and Sebastian US tour, hopefully next May.
You might be wondering what exactly music inspired by
the film really means, because thats the sort
of thing a record company would say about a Prince album featuring
one stinking song from the Batman movie and nothing else heard
in the cinema. To that, all we can say is, inspiration is
very hard to quantify (as Prince has shown time and time again).
In the meantime, Belle and Sebastian have confirmed a series
of UK dates in March and April. The following news
item proves once again that this isnt just another bunch
of rock shows in smoky auditoriums.
And weve just learned that Belle and Sebastian will
be performing at this years Coachella
Fetival in Indio, CA. Coachella, for those blissfully
unaware, is kind of like Lollapalooza squeezed into one big
show instead of one big tour. Other artists confirmed for
this years event are Oasis (are they still together?),
Blonde Redhead (you wont catch any Matador artists doing
commercials for jeans companies. ...oh, yeah, sorry about
that. You wont catch more than half the artists on Matador
doing jeans commercials), the Prodigy and Bjork. At this writing,
Skid Row have not been added to the bill, but perhaps there
is a petition you can circulate.
In television news, the February 12 plot of The Gilmore
Girls centers around the struggle to get Belle and Sebastians
latest EP while grounded. Legal Man will hopefully
play in the episode as well. This coming Tuesday on the WB,
8:00 PM EST.
A quick Matmos update this time around since these guys
are hard at work juggling so many projects at one time. After
their worldwide tour opening and performing with Bjork and
promoting their latest album, Matmos returned to their hometown,
San Francisco, to finish what they left off before they went
on the road. Then, on very short notice, theyve been
asked to play with Bjork on a two week promo tour in Paris,
Cologne, and San Remo for a bunch of music awards and radio
shows. They end in London in the studio working on Bjorks
Preston School of Industry (On a Mission
Scott and Co. have a couple shows upcoming with our good
friends Guided By Voices....
March 1 at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA
March 3 at Bimbos 365 in San Francisco, CA
PSOIs recent webcast from House Of Blues may or may
not be archived. If not, you can probably find an excellent
Everclear set on the House Of Blues site, or maybe some good
pictures of Dan Ackroyd.
Aereogramme have just announced
a trio of dates in the UK:
February 13 - Aberdeen - Lemon Tree
February 27 - Dundee - On Air East (with Icarus Line)
February 28 - Glasgow - King Tuts (with Icarus Line)
Dont forget the videos
now up on the Matador site. Two songs live from the Mercury
Lounge and two solo acoustic tracks from the Matador roof.
In short sleeves. In December. Go figure.
Craig B writes: Aereogramme Tour Nonsense. For some reason,
Germany has taken to the aereogramme album like a big fat
duck to water so with the help of John Peel getting us over
for a gig in Holland, we decided to head off to Germany for
a few dates, nipping into Switzerland and Belgium for a few
nights as well.
11th - Groningen - Grand Theatre - Holland
Pretty impressive wee town this. Its hard to explain
just how efficient the Europeans are at these types of festivals
but the whole town square was turned into a festival site
with the venues within spitting distance of each other (we
know this as Martin tried to spit on the jazz nonsense coming
from the venue opposite ours). We also had the utter pleasure
of having dinner with John Peel and his wife and managed to
hear some pretty great stories involving Rod Stewart and "whispering"
Bob Harris. A total honour.
12th - Rotterdam - Rotown
Beautiful venue beside a pretty skanky canal. Dont seem to
remember much about this gig. Funny that....
- Bielefeld - Forum
First date in Germany where we met Ollie our German tour manager
who was a huge help. Our German is frankly non-existent which
is shameful since every other country seems to be able to
speak many languages. The hotel had a full circus tent set
up beside it. Almost thought of running away to the circus
but then I realized Ive never seen a bearded clown in
my life so the tour continued.
16th - Weinheim - Cafe Central
We broke down here and were stuck for two days which entertained
the nosey locals. Great gig the night before though since
the promoter blasted the new Slayer album and refused "new
noise" through the P.A. at full volume after the show.
18th - Fribourg - Fri-Son - Switzerland
Terrible gig. My guitar was cutting out all the way through
the first three songs which destroyed any hope of laying down
some "mean licks" on the unsuspecting Swiss folk (and band
members). A certain group of kids had come from the town of
Basil, the cancelled gig the night before so they got a second
boot in the baws as they witnessed our equipment fall apart.
19th - Zurich - Rote Fabrik
Beautiful venue situated beside a huge lake with the Alps
at the end towering over everything. Had great enjoyment seeing
three very stoned metal fans headbanging to our heavier songs
and then rolling some "funny cigarettes" during our quiet
songs. No time wasted there.
21st - Dresden - Scheuene
I dont think Dresden district council have repaired
the roads in their fine city since it was flatened as I have
never been thrown about a tour bus as much as our approach
to the venue. Amazing venue though. Managed to get a full
bottle of Jagermeister from the promoter as well. Jagermeister
is the German version of buckfast. We tried to explain the
meaning of "fighting wine" to the Germans after that.
23rd - Hamburg - Logo
Had a great night out in Hamburg thanks to Ollie. We also
managed to find a pub with a heavy metal female D.J. who totally
made our night by playing TOOL, AC/DC and many other tunes
to which we instantly made tits of ourselves by air drumming
to most of the songs. Martin admitted that night that he would
leave us in an instant if offered the drumming job in AC/DC.
Dont blame him. Id do it as well.
24th - Essen - KKC
Second night in a row where we have been praised by a transexual.
Wonder if there is a pattern forming?
25th - Antwerp - Der Singel
Another amazing festival set in Belgium this time. Played
a pretty good set to a seated audience in the biggest hall
we have ever seen, let alone played in. Cornershop headlined
that night and suffered every bands worst nightmare.
An audience of around 1000 was reduced to around 100 by the
end of their set. It was like that Trigger Happy sketch where
the audience leave the minute the band start playing. It was
so horrible to watch and I can only imagine what that must
have felt like on stage. Yeuch.
26th - Amsterdam - Paradiso
Campbell managed to spit on the weirdest heckler we have ever
had. I still have no idea if he liked us or hated us but man,
this guy would not shut up and made no sense at all. He was
telt by the big man, though. (Campbell, not God).
27th - Den Bosch - W2
Played this gig at 4:30 in the afternoon which was a first!
Great D.J. that afternoon though. Shellac / The God Machine
/ Chavez etc.... Good end to the tour.
This tour, we have been mostly listening to: Converge- "jane
doe" / Slayer- "God hates us all" / The Dirty Three- "whatever
you love, you are" / Fantomas / Stars of the Lid- "The tired
We have also been laughing at all the incredibly bad videos
being shown on MTV2 right now. We have never laughed so much
as we did upon seeing the new Creed video for the first time.
What a load of pish.
Thank you and see you soon.
Cat Power: Ouch
No news yet concerning titles and release dates for Chans
new Matador album, but shes working on it. But not today,
as she hurt her hand playing basketball. As a result, her
recent batch of East Coast dates have been rescheduled (see
24 - Providence, RI - Met Cafe
25 - Boston, MA - Coolidge
26 - Brooklyn, NY - Warsaw
27 - Purchase, NY - SUNY Purchase
28 - Tivoli, NY - Milagros Church
Unfortunately, the Feb 8, Athens, GA show (@ UGA) will not
be able to be re-scheduled. Also, the Atlanta (Feb 14) & Savannah
(Feb 16) shows are off for now, hopefully to be re-scheduled
Heads Up From Lyle
Also, what about this possible new Matador product?
Liz Phair has a role in the movie Cherish, described
as a musical horror film. Her co-stars: Robin Tunney who was
in the Craft. Jason Priestly. Liz and Brandon Walsh together
D-Stroy: In the Snow
Catch D-Stroy at Fridge Magazines Snowed Out
Allstar Weekend Breckenridge, Colorado 4/5-7, with Ludacris.
D-storys long awaited CD compiling his 2 recent Matador
12"s + extra stuff is still being prepared... but coming
Large Pro: At Lincoln Center,
New Full-Length Forthcoming
The Large Professor performance at Lincoln Center was
a huge success. The Extra P rocked classic joints Looking
At The Front Door, Just Hangin Out,
Fakin The Funk (with Neek The Exotic), and
current hits Blaze Rhymez and Bout
That Time in front of 3,000 heads. The Living legend
received a standing ovation after having to rock the second
half of his set a capella because of bad sound. Even the sound
man cant keep a good emcee down.
Whats Up Matador: Exotic Locations-Style
MEXICO - Suave Records
is the label, they started out last year with the soundtrack
for "E Tu Mama Tambien" featuring many artists that you may
know of.... They just signed a three year licensing deal with
Matador and their first batch of releases will incude Cornelius
Point, Stephen Malkmus, Yo La Tengo And
Then Nothing... and Console Rocket in the Pocket.
Any of you living in the Great White South in need of assistance
please check their website.
KOREA - Ales Music.
Famous for making Stephen Malkmus play Here one
more time. This label will manufacture and distribute Matador
product in South Korea for at least the next three years.
Ales will release most of the upcoming Matador albums and
a few older ones as well. All the info you need plus some
truly embarrassing pictures from a certain recent event can
be found on their site.
AUSTRALIA - Our dear friends over at SPUNK!
released Mark Eitzels The Invisible Man
last year and will release Cornelius Point in
a matter of minutes. And there will be more Matador records
coming out through Spunk! soon as well. Distribution over
there is handled by the very capable INERTIA
Distribution. These guys have pretty much the entire Matador
Catalog available at this point. And as Couch let you know,
licensed Couch Profane.
ARGENTINA - Ultrapop
in Buenos Aires signed a licensing deal with us last year
for all of South America with the exception of Brazil and
started by releasing Preston School of Industry and Stephen
Malkmus. Cornelius Point will be available shortly.
Dont forget our old friends:
record label in Japan, purveyors of fine Matador music for
the past three years.
in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Probably the most inspiring label
to deal with in all of South America, weve worked with
these guys for three years now as well.
in Taiwan are three-year veterans too.
Well, lessee. My month of bicycle riding was postponed
(hard to get a bike for free), so I spent the last month and
a half pretty much sitting around thinking about working on
a new Matador record, I got some shows coming up, which you
will see below... The Matador record is coming along nicely.
And I finally finished the 12 hour Lesser MP3 album (coming
soon on Tigerbeat6), which covers pretty much everything from
1990 to 2000 - with lots of unreleased / live / rare stuff...
Gee, that only took 2 years. I am feeling incredibly uninspired
first thing in the morning.... O - I have a new addiction...
Grand Theft Auto 3... I got sick for a week (fever = 104 Fahrenheit)
and hallucinated GTA3 like I had to steal pickup trucks
and do some sort of intense mind puzzle, this while in reality
I am banging my head on a chair and burning myself on the
heater because I have the chills so bad. Yessiree, quite a

Mount Florida: Twitch reports
long time no update. basically, there has been no
activity in the mount florida camp. this could be due to trying
to come back down to earth after the rapturous response to
our album, struggling with that difficult second album or
due to the fact that mp lancaster has knackered his back.
unfortunately its the latter and poor mp is in so much
pain that he has been unable to sit in front of his g4 and
make music for many, many months. he is getting slightly better
but its best not to rush these things. in the meantime,
he has probably amassed enough samples of his back being manipulated
by various ostheopaths and chiropracters to form the rhythms
for a quadruple concept album. or did someone else already
do something similar?
in the meantime, twitch continues to dj around and about and
is still at the helm of the monstrous optimo. optimo has now
spawned two labels - oscarr and another which had better go
unamed for fear of reprisals from several top pop stars
i cant be bothered listing what ive been listening
to recently but you can see my pop djing selections
I never ever worried about modern classical music
untill now. The 17th of May there will be a Cut & Paste
kind of festival in Utrechts nice venue Vredenburg.
The highly esteemed Maarten Altena assemble will
play (rearrange) 6 Solex songs combined with some of the work
of Charles Ives. Charles Ives was a 20th century composer
who was well known for musical quotes in his compositions
(yep, a bit like sampling).
I just had my first meeting with mister Altena, and felt kind
of common, just because most of the Solex compositions werent
poly-rythmic. The 17th I will trigger my samples & sing some
bits together with a real scholared voice. The ensemble has
9 members. We only have one rehearsal date. So... for someone
who doesnt know how to read notes, Ive got many
reasons to be nervous. I will of course make recordings of
the rehearsal & of the actual performance in order to sample
and party (there might be more cutting then pasting this time)
Khan: Something Exploded In His Face
i just had a minor accident here in mexico trying
to light my boiler after the gas went out. it blew up in my
face and i look like bob geldolf in pink floyds the
wall, with no eye lashes and brows. i go out with sun
glasses, or only at night.
i finshed a reggae project with my friend christian jandreiko,
also known for his release on flesh records planeten
suite, for little annie of on u-sound fame, crass etc...
we will record her vocals in march in nyc. the project is
called little annie and the legally jammin and is wacky
otherwise im enjoying mexico and have some guest shows
here with a wannabe cramps band and some solo show. i hired
5 dancers that look just like the the backstreet boys and
3 private police officers for a show at the matador / bullfight
museum in downtown mexico. the dancers know every move of
the b.b.s. i will report on how the show went.
i will move to berlin this summer with my friend and partner
snax to tour with captain comatse, piere and gilles style.
Ill be touring with kid congo powers and nick cave and
the bad seeds april - may, and playing aquaplanig festival
in france in june 28th-30th.
further, i will host a musical in geneva later this year.
i will be the evil character. the show will be presented on
a boat at the beautiful geneva lake, the music is provided
by the dead brothers and will tour later this year germany,
france, and switzerland. the shows start october and will
go on until nov.
i got a report by mignon from peaches that ride me
is a big hit in australian strip tease clubs.... what could
be a better compliment for me !! therefore i will record my
new album this winter in australia with my friend adam 8-bit
and its gonna be some rnb-grace-jones-frankenstein.
Sad Rockets: Andrew Pekler Solo Album
Sad Rockets Andrew Pekler has a new album under
his own name entitled Station To Station due out
end of April on Stefan Betkes scape records, also home
to Pole, Jan Jelinek, Kit Clayton and Burnt Friedman. The
following blurb comes to us from scape:
On this, his first album under his own name, Andrew Pekler
deals with the possibilites of combining the precise funk
of machines with the unpolished playing of human hands. With
an appreciation for the early jazz/electronics experiments
of Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Sun Ra, but also with an
interest in the use of sounds devoid of obvious musical-historical
references, Andrew Pekler offers an interesting variation
on the theme of man/machine interplay.
Until now Andrew, a California native living in Heidelberg,
was known for his involvement in Sad Rockets (Source/ Matador)
and Bergheim 34 (Klang Elektronik). His relocation to Berlin
in the Fall of 2001 brought with it not only a change of scenery
but also new acquaintances, contacts and musical interests
all of which combined, inspired the making of Station
While tracks like First Snow, Last Year suggest
the influence of Berlins urban dub history, Manchild
is centered around the inspired saxophone playing of Elliott
Levin. A veteran of Cecil Taylors big band, Levin is
among Philadelphias most free spirited jazz musicians,
having played with members of the Sun Ra Arkestra and in various
improv and experimental settings.
This process of retro-fitting a track onto an improvised performance,
(done on several pieces here) is indicative of the changeover
from recording in real time onto analog tape, as with Andrew
Peklers previous Sad Rockets records, to the programming
of tracks and hard disk recording, (and the range of possibilities
this brings with it) on this album. Similar to the music of
Burnt Friedman, the tracks here break up the repetitiveness
of their grooves with tiny details and variations. The somewhat
static norms of loop based music are relaxed through the use
of imprecise, (but not random) accents. The music
does in fact travel from station to station, but along the
way takes detours,
shortcuts and a few surprising turns....

Matador co-president writes book;
publishing industry takes a deep breath.
For years people have been asking Matadors Gerard
Cosloy why he hasnt written a book about his many years
at the epicentre of underground rock. Cosloy was there when
Agnostic Front played one of their first shows. OK, he couldnt
actually get in, but he could get the gist of it from the
Ritz lobby. He also once had coffee with a girl whose mom
slept with someone from The Fluid. With antedoctes like these,
Gerard has authored the 500+ page, Your Band Could Offend
My Wife, an inspirational blast-from-the-past recounting
the many occasions in which bands, Matador artists and otherwise,
have offended his wife. As-told-to famed rock critic Daniel
Acquilante, Your Band Could Offend My Wife should
be available from Amazon or Insound or K-Mart any day now.

Five new things I tried for the new year.
1. Went to the Central Park Zoo. Just think Polar Bears that
live on 5th Avenue. "Moving on up to the east side. I guess
they finally got a piece of the pie."
2. Read Nick Zedds "Totem of the Depraved." Name drops
Jon Spencer and Richard Hell.
3. Saw MONTY LOVE live at the Mercury Lounge. Ill pay
them the highest compliment I can: Their music really is the
soundtrack to backyard wrestling.
4. Remembered to lock off the elevator. Who am I kidding,
I dont even have keys. S L A C K E R S
5. I tried living an interesting life. I really have tried
but as you can tell from the previous 4 entries I havent
been very successful.
Worst Valentines Day: Got kicked off my college radio station
and nearly arrested by the campus police, for calling the
police station and asking the dispatcher to be my Valentine.
When she said no I asked if I could order a pizza? Happy Valentines
