Hell City Glamours, good and bad news around Hell City… The good news is they’ve finally got paypal set up so you can purchase Tshirts, $30 (australian) worldwide!! Just go to their myspace page and pick a size and colour. If you’re after a tee and don’t have paypal, email them and they’ll work something out for you (It’ll be set up on the website this week too). Now for the bad news, it looks like the album won’t hit the shelves until May. No shows for a little while, whilst they get the record sorted, next one at this stage is April 20th for Cherry Rock in Melbourne

A quick tip for you Jesse Malin fans… PRE-ORDER NOW! JESSE MALIN – ON YOUR SLEEVE £12.99. Recorded over seven days and featuring interpretations of classic singer-songwriters Tom Waits and Neil Young, contemporary greats such as The Hold Steady and The Kills, punk icons The Ramones and The Clash, Lou Reed and even a Sam Cooke standard – Jesse tips his hat to a small collection of writers that inform his unique musical identity and appeal. As a performing songwriter, Jesse appreciated the challenge of covering unique melodies not of his own design. Or, as Jesse puts it: “seven days of crazy fun, trying on other peoples’ clothes in my own apartment…” The new album will be out on 7th April
