carry on, scrawl

Word comes from Irwin Chusid that Scrawl--a band dear enough to my heart that the column I've been writing on and off for 13 years is indirectly named after one of their albums--are looking to release a compilation of a bunch of stuff from their pre-Elektra years. They own the rights to He's Drunk, Plus, Also, Too, Smallmouth, Bloodsucker and Velvet Hammer, and there's also a Peel session, some live recordings and a few other things. And they're playing a reunion show opening for Shellac next month in Chicago.

If you're reading this & are interested in talking to Scrawl about putting something out, you can contact the band via Irwin at keyofz [at-sign-goes-here]

ooooh, Douglas, you just made my morning. Thanks so much for that wonderful news. "January," from that one Simple Machines seven inch, is an all-time fave. Thanks.
