The Vault of Horror

Four previously unseen (and in the case of the Polaroids, previously unsuspected) photos of us, as unearthed by shutterbug and chum Allan Rosenberg. Who, as it turns out, is the photog who took the front cover portraits seen on the CD. Credits on the Zero Hour reissue will obviously be adjusted in that regard.

Incidentally, Allan also discovered a whole bunch of color slides he took of us during the same period; I'll be scanning and posting them in the next couple of days.

Cue Count Floyd and "very scary!!!!"

August Album Update: The Floors of Summer

A couple of brief news flashes:

1. The liner notes for the forthcoming Australian reissue of Floor Your Love -- which behoove beholding -- can be beheld, i.e., read, over here at PowerPop.

2. My beautiful and brilliant girlfriend, who art-directed the original CD (and who works cheap), has suggested we reposition the front cover photos thusly.

I concur.

3. My old chum Allan Rosenberg informs me he has discovered a humongous trove of previously unseen and unsuspected Floor Models photos, which we will be scanning and posting beginning in September. Interestingly, these include the negatives to the aforementioned front cover photos, which means that Allan is in fact the photographer of same (which we had long suspected but not been sure of until now). The album credits will be thus corrected on the aforementioned Austrlian reissue.

Kudos, Al!!!
