KEXP’S Wussy Write-up For SXSW

Ok, I’m a punk — I know — and in the bad, group-home living not cleaning up your dirty clothes from the floor, crapping in public kind of way, not the sexy, wearing safety pin-wearing and singing gutturally way. I haven’t been updating the blog, and I totally missed saying anything about SXSW. Would it make you feel any better to know that I’ve been playing a ton? No?

Well…

You know who has been writing? The bloggers over at KEXP.

In fact, here’s a wonderful little piece about your’s truly’s favorite band, Wussy. Just go read it, and you don’t really need me to update the blog.

DIY IKEA Pedalboards

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my growing collection of pedalboards.  A Pedaltrain is tempting, but because they start at a hundred bucks for one of a decent size, I haven’t jumped on the possibility.  I came across a DIY trend this morning that’s intriguing.  There are quite a few people who make diy pedalboards out of a shelf from Ikea’s GORM shelving unit.  You can see examples in the Harmony Central forums here.

Oh, Ikea, what can’t you do?

Guitareste In Hibernation

I’ve been a little absent lately, and for that I apologize.  But!  Never fear, I am still playing and thinking about music.  My little student ensemble group is getting ready for another performance this weekend.  We’re covering Wire, Gang of Four, and PiL.  And yes, we will be doing the most excellent song Mannequin (See Grass Widow’s lovely version below.)
