Yeah, I was gonna do a self-promo blurb to the list about this, but 
you beat me to it! Thanks!

I haven't even seen the article yet, I was hoping it'd come today.  I 
was totally floored when EM chose to profile it, I'd sent 'em a copy 
when the disc came out but had pretty much given up on it happening. 
I've read EM since almost the beginning, so it's a huge honor to be 
in its pages.

>PS: Planning a remix version of the album? Cool idea.

Yeah, and since it was one of the things mentioned in the article, I 
guess this means I'm really doing it :-). So maybe this is as good a 
time as any to throw this out to the list: Anyone wanna do a remix? 
I've already guilt-tripped LD member Neil Goldstein into doing a 
tune, as well as a number of other friends, but there's still room 
for more. There are MP3's online at 
http://www.newandimprov.com/minus2.html, or drop me a line and I'll 
send out a disc. The music is kind of psychedelic power trio stuff 
with lots of dub, metal and jazz influences, and my only restraint 
with the remixes is that I want them to be as wild, creative, 
surprising, and fun as possible.
