Neko Case's Answering Machine

- Wanna know what's on Neko Case's answering machine? Steve Forstgener has the scoop in his Illinois Entertainer cover story this month. It doesn't look like much in print, but imagine it in Neko's voice:

"Hey, this is Neko. I am not around. I'm not answering the phone, and I'm not calling anybody back because I can't. Because I'm working. So if you leave a message, I probably won't call you back for a month. It doesn't mean I don't like you, I'm just not picking up the phone. Thank you for understanding."

Case appears at the Vic on March 31st.

- Jon Langford appears at the Metro on March 16th, and rumor has it will play in three bands on the bill while painting and writing a play at the same time.

- Split Lip Rayfield cancelled its tour dates last month upon learning that guitarist Kirk Rundstrom was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Donations or other gestures of support can be sent to:

Kirk Rundstrom
314 N. Volutsia Ave.
Wichita, KS. 67214

- Calexico is band from Tucson, but Calexico is also a city whose motto is "Where California and Mexico Meet."

- The Handsome Family likes their crappy Website, so don't e-mail them with your plans to fix it up.

- On a lonely January night in 2000, the Bloodshot Records staff chose their favorite "super-charged power ballads" and posted them to their Website. They haven't changed since:

Scott: Sister Christian/Night Ranger
Angie: Ready for Love/Bad Company
Stolie: Can't Fight This Feeling/REO Speedwagon
Thais: Beth/KISS
Kegan: Don't Go Away/Oasis
JP: We Belong/Pat Benatar
