RIP Expressway To Yr Skull



The time has finally come to retire the name Expressway To Yr Skull in the context of this podcast - I started using it when I was doing a college radio show with a friend back in my early twenties & almost a decade later, I definitely feel like I've outgrown that particular moniker. Next weekend, I start a new weekly two-hour show at Freeform Portland & it seemed like an opportune time to change things up, so going forward, y'all can look forward to weekly radio dispatches from me under the show name Futures & Pasts. Hi.

Catch me on the air live on Saturday nights from 8-10pm PST in the Portland city limits at KFFP 90.3FM, or stream online from the Freeform Portland site wherever you are. Shows will continue to be posted after the fact for your streaming/downloading pleasure & to that end, I'll be migrating to a new blog (or rather, the Tumblr I've been using for a few months, with a fancy new domain name). This blog will stay up as a historical document & musical archive, but update your bookmarks & go to the Futures & Pasts site for all new content.

Feel free to drop me a line at ripitupstartagain[at]gmail[dot]com to stay in touch, send me music, say hey, etc.

xo, e.

Hello

A quick message from The Suncharms here - we've noticed that you've given us some much appreciated support on your blog and we'd love you to know that we have a new retrospective CD compilation out now on Cloudberry Records !
It contains all the tracks from our two EPs ( first released in 1991 ) plus six previously unreleased demo tracks.
The Suncharms were from Sheffield UK and were active from 1989-1993 - we played a mixture of melodic indie pop and shoegaze.
The build up to the release of this CD has meant a reunion of sorts with the band meeting up to collect old photos, reviews , set lists etc - most of which can be seen in the CD booklet alongside a comprehensive history of the band.
Since meeting up we've already started working on brand new songs - our first since 1993!
The CD is available from Cloudberry Records, Jigsaw Records, Rough Trade Records, Vinyl Exchange and Discogs. Only 500 copies have been pressed.
For further information please check out the Cloudberry Records Blog and our Facebook page.

Thank you !
