Damn. I've been meaning to post about this for days now, seriously, ever since the beginning of the week... Today (Saturday, that is) is the very, very last-last day to buy the week's installment of the Grey Ghost CD-R series, this ultra-super-limited edition (13 copies only) bunch of little EPs put out by Grey Ghost's John Sears for ridiculous cheap & featuring pretty much everybody cool here in Helltown at some point or another. Each CD-R's available for sale only at Domy Books on Westheimer (next to Brasil), and each is only there for one week before it vanishes into Sears' archives and is replaced by a new pile.
See here and here, by the by, for a detailed history of Grey Ghost -- thankyew, Skyline, for posting the info for the enlightenment of all. Sears has been doing cool stuff in this city for as long as yours truly has been paying attention, all the way back to the first ridiculously badass Fatal Flying Guilloteens tape I think I snagged at an Amy's Ice Cream show back, back, back in the day.)
This week's EP, Tire Fire, comes from Hearts of Animals' own Mlee Marie, and while I haven't heard it (I'm sneakily trying to think of ways to get up to Domy sometime this afternoon...), I like what I've heard of HoA, so it's probably pretty neat. The coming week's release is from BDM (aka Benjamin Davis Murphy, currently of Bright Men of Learning, ex-Lucky Motors, ex-We've Got Airplanes, ex-Pop Deflation, ex-etc., etc.), and it's reportedly a shiny little pop gem that even includes a cover of Big Star's "Thirteen." If you've heard anything Ben's done before now -- and you really should've, if you haven't -- then you know how good he is. Otherwise, you'll just have to take my word for it.
Not sure what all's coming down the pipe or when, but rumor has it that there'll be releases from Halocline (ex-Port Vale) & awesome local punk rockers Something Fierce. Sadly, if you haven't been hitting up Domy regularly 'til now, you've already missed out on EPs from Blades, Punkin Pie, Cop Warmth, & Little Red Lighthouse. Shame, shame...
