The idea of the low powered community stations has for all practical
purposes been destroyed by the powers that be and it looks like internet
radio is about to suffer the same fate.

There’s pending legislation concerning on-line radio that would make it so
expensive and so restrictive that very few could afford to take part.  The
legislation that is coming up requires very complicated reporting, high
fees, and restrictions on what is played. For example, multiple plays by
the same artist or from even the same album would not be allowed. A Bob
Marley special from the Rev. just would not be allowed.  If one of the
remaining Beatles died  a tribute could not be legally done if the station
also broadcasts online. It looks like it could take place by May 21st.

The major labels are demanding that webcasters (including college radio
stations across the country, live365, Shoutcast, etc.) pay a very high new
royalty rate retroactive back to every song they've played since 1998.

All musicians and fans should be VERY concerned. Because right now there
are THOUSANDS of cool stations that could be playing YOUR music. But in a
few short days, there might be NONE LEFT except a few Big Giant
Corporate-Owned Stations, which won't play anything except music by other
Big Giant Companies paying them lots of money.

your state automatically and it only takes a few seconds of you time!!

The Future Of Internet Radio Depends on it!!!!!
At this point it looks that online radio might be wiped out before it even
gets really launched!!

New release very soon: "Feed" by MJB
One of the great lofi-veterans in New York is Mike Bowman, alias MJB. A year ago he released his record "Feed" on his own label Semperlofi. The record is so great that it deserves more attention in Europe. That's why I decided to re-release it on Glasvocht.
"Feed" is a kind of weird retro-pop with alot of inventive electronica, samples and a big dosis of fine humour.

Guitarimpro/noise compilation
A few months ago I asked a few great artists doing things on guitar to join a Glasvocht compilation. In the mean time I received work of the most of them, so I can start soon making a selection for which tracks wil appear on the compilation. The record will be co-released by Carbon Records (USA) and will be available after the summer.
These following artists will join the compilation:
Random reflections (Belgium)
Noxagt (Norway, band of guitar anti-hero Kjetil D Brandsdal)
Loren Connors (USA, legendary artist known from projects with Jim O' Rourke, Alan Licht, John Fahey and much more)
Flies Inside The Sun (New Zealand, including Peter Stapleton of the label Metonymic)
Lovely Midget (New Zealand, releases on Corpus Hermeticum en Ecstatic Peace of Thurston Moore)

Glasvocht event at Kunstencentrum Belgie
A few weeks ago I was asked by Belgie, an artcenter from Hasselt to give a new glasvocht event. I thought it was great to work with one of the best artcenters in Belgium, so I started to look around and I've found a few artist playing that night like Annelies Monseré (Zent One), Lobke Dhespeel (Mote, Breezr) and my own soundscape-project Picturesque. Glasvocht event will be present on june 29.

Sorry it took so long to get this edition out, folks.
I took a sick day to get all of these thoughts down.
If you have links on your site, do link T.U.M.
If you spread the word to others, please stress that we don't have many thoughts regarding pop music; and that the thrust here is with improvisation, acoustic, and experimental music.
Have a safe summer and watch out for the beach-bound and swillin',



   This is the fourth annual Old Santa Ynez Day Lawn Party.  I set up my PA and various folks play. 

Usually we have a loose list of the order folks will be playing just so people can have
some idea of when we expect to hear from them.  We also have folks that jump
in and support the person playing.  Basically a combination open mic/open
jam type musical event.

    While we are doing the music on the Jones front lawn, under a most cool
shade tree, there are concurrent activities happening around us in
celebration of Old Santa Ynez Day.  This includes a parade going by the
house and an Old West themed celebration and street fair.  Since we live
right uptown on the parade route, literally thousands of people walk by our
house.  As musicians, we attempt to entice these perfect strangers and
potential CD buyers into our web and coerce them into being our audience.
Most of the folks in attendance are musicians and their family and friends.

    Some of the players you might know who have played in the past and are
expected to return include David Cowan, Antara  and Delilah, Kate Bennett
and Jeff Bisch, Michele Shipp, Joey Osso and of course my personal favorite,
Earl.  This is but a partial list.  Last year my old pal and guitar teacher
from Bakersfield, Ernie Lewis, drove over and blew the joint away with his
banjo picking and fiddling.  I was so proud to know him. It is a great day
because so many fun and interesting people are in one festive spot

    We start around noon and go until around 4 or 5 PM.  Then the die-hards hang
out and prove whom among us knows the most cover tunes. 


In a nutshell:


Who is invited?  All musicians and nusic lovers

What is it?  The World's Greatest Open Mic and Musician's Convention

Where is it held?  The Jones Front Lawn in Uptown Santa Ynez across from The Historic Red Barn Restaurant

When is it?  Saturday June 8,2002  between 12pm-5pm during THe Old Santa Ynez Day Old West Celebration, Parade and Street Fair
