For those of you unaware, Louisville artist, musician and all around awesome guy Jason Noble has unexpectantly been faced with some serious health issues recently. A Caring Bridge blog has been set up so that his family and friends can keep up with his progress. Jason is known for his work in bands such as Rodan, Rachel's and Shipping News. We wish Jason and his family all the best and look forward to his return to action.

The release of The Teeth's "Clatter & Jive" seven inch is imminent...
Straight A's are working on finishing up their first full length endeavor with recording engineer extraordinaire Trip Barringer. It's sounding awesome so far and will feature guest spots by Thommy Browne, Sue Crocker and Dan Moore. A Spring release seems likely.
A portion of Noise Pollution's catalog is now available as digital downloads through Think Indie. Think Indie is a new site run by a consortium of independent record stores from across the country offering both digital downloads and physical CDs and vinyl for sale.
Former Evergreen/Cinderblock singer Dave Pollard will have his art on display on October 9 at Liberty Tattoo & Art Parlor on the corner of 3rd Street and M Street (down the street from UofL). The show runs from 7 to 10pm. You can check out selections of Dave's work on his myspace page.
Some music from The Glasspack will be featured on the FX series Sons Of Anarchy this season. Specifically Episode #209 ( which will be the ninth episode this season). The Glasspack's Dave Johnson also made a recent appearance on WFPK's Off the Record series which can be heard here.
Lucky Pineapple will be celebrating their 5 year anniversary on Wednesday Oct. 7th at the Rudyard Kipling. There will be food, drink, music and merriment on hand. The band recently recorded a music video for "Moment in an Empty Street" off of the recently reissued cd The Bubble Has Burst in Sky City (now available on SonaBlast! Records). LP's William Benton was also recently on WFPK's Off the Record which can be heard here. Bandmate Matt Dodds was recently interviewed by My Old Kentucky Blog and that can be read here.
Louisville Lip Records has just released the newest CDep by FOOR. It's available now at Ear Xtacy. The supporting cast this time around features Shawn Severs on vocals and Nathan Smallwood on guitar.
Minnow's Doug Maxson is playing in a new band called Hal Dolls who are great. They have a myspace page here.
Dunkenstein Records are working on the newest Doctors of Dunk compilation which will have the theme of covers of old Louisville bands (ala 1991 Slamdek Christmas tape). We think they're still accepting submissions, so hit them up here if interested.
A three 7" box set by 1069 is now available at Ear Xtacy. 1069 is a one off project by Louisville punk veterans Steve Rigot (The Endtables), Sandy Campbell & Michael O'Bannon (Blinders). It's on the pricey side, but it's a very limited run of only 100 copies.
We wanted to thank everyone who came out to the Evergreen "Wholeness of the Soul" cd release show last month and helped make it such a memorable night. The Evergreen cd was a project 10 years in the making for us (16+ years if you want to go all the way back to when we used to go see them play in the early 1990's), so it was almost unbelieveable to us that it finally happened. Our hats are off to Troy Cox and Dave Pollard who both busted their asses getting back in fighting shape for this show. Their enthusiasm and support for the whole affair was infectious to everyone involved in putting the show and the cd together. And of course without the hard work and dedication of Sean Roberts, Greg Livingston and our own Nate Smallwood the show would not have been possible. Also special thanks need to go out to our friends Dave Johnson, Andrew Padon, Duncan Cherry, Greg Edwards and Brian Lueken for pitching in to help it all come together.
Video of Cinderblock Redux's set was recorded by several folks (including Jeff Polk who posted the above video) and apparently there is a good audio recording as well. There are plans to edit the audio and video recordings together and we look forward to seeing how that comes out. We'll post something here about it if it comes to fruition.
