Two announcements:

1.) I recently had the Great Honor of interviewing Tokyo guitar god Michio Kurihara (of Ghost, White Heaven, The Stars, his own stunning solo work and most recently Boris) for my pals over at at Deep Water. Thanks to Naomi Yang and her label 20|20|20 for making it possible, and also to Alan Cummings for his excellent translations.

2.) Also... AVARUS (A-VAH-ROOZ) is coming back to the US for yet another Finnish invasion of cosmic drones 'n' groans, and they're playing with some heavies along the way! Mark your calenders if any of these gigs are in your proximity, and for God's sake don't take any non-FDA-approved chemicals if you plan to attend.
