Small Faces Special Edition
Noble PR reports: Issued in mid-1968, Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake was a truly groundbreaking album in so many ways. Quite apart from containing some of the Small Faces' finest moments, it was one of the first 'concept albums', side 2 featuring a novel narration from comic Stanley Unwin which punctuated songs following the quest of Happiness Stan to find the missing half of the moon! In packaging terms, too, it broke new ground, housed in a lavish foldout circular LP sleeve, inspired by an old tobacco tin. 

Now Sanctuary pays homage to this seminal album by releasing a new 3-CD Deluxe Edition; featuring the stereo mix, a companion mono version (previously unavailable on CD) plus a further CD of BBC Radio 1's �Classic Albums' documentary on the making of the band. Originally transmitted in 1989, this last bonus disc features interviews with all four band members: singer/guitaristSteve Marriott, bassist Ronnie Lane (along with Steve, the band's songwriting backbone), organist Ian McLagan and drummer Kenney Jones.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

SXSW Stomped
conqueroo reports: The line outside the Continental Club stretched down the block last Friday night, as the Ponderosa Stomp SXSW Showcase � part of the Louisiana Initiative at SXSW and sponsored by Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company and the New Orleans Musicians Gig Fund, via a generous grant from Rolling Stone � took a packed house on a whirlwind trip to the Gulf Coast. A veritable dream team of Mardi Gras Indians, swamp poppers, garage rockers, rockabilly heroes, soul singers, and R&B shouters were on the bill for the party, a sneak preview for the Ponderosa Stomp, scheduled for the Gibson Guitar Factory in Memphis, Tennessee May 8, 9 & 10. Spanish moss hung from the microphone stands as Shreveport, Louisiana native DJ Fontana � best known for pounding the tubs on Elvis' early sessions, recorded a half-century ago this year � took the stage with dueling guitarists Charlie Sexton and CC Adcock, bassist Kenny Bill Stinson, and a variety of vocalists, including swamp pop godfather Warren Storm, who belted out a vicious version of "Hound Dog" to a rapt audience, before fellow swamp popper Tommy McClain served up his own hits, including versions of "Sweet Dreams" and "Before I Grow Too Old."[see full story for more] - Click Here for the Full Story

Kylesa Update
Prosthetic reports: Savannah sludge rockers KYLESA will be back on the road on the East Coast this spring to continue supporting 2005's critically-acclaimed To Walk A Middle Course. Landing on a handful of year-end lists, the band will take that buzz on the road alongside a variety of other acts including Municipal Waste, Baroness, Victims, and labelmates Yakuza.

Last month, Kylesa settled on a replacement for the band's vacant drummer position: 2 of them. "Since the dawn of Kylesa, it was our intention to have two drummers but at the time it didn't pan out," the band says. "Finally, after 5 years it has become a reality and two new members have been added to play drums: Jeff Porter from Detroit and Carl McGinley of Savannah (who also drums for the Unpersons). We feel that this is our strongest line up as of yet and new and old songs are coming along great." Kylesa is currently writing material for the follow-up to the band's Prosthetic debut, To Walk A Middle Course. [see full story for dates]- Click Here for the Full Story
