Time To Give Thanks For The Continued Career Of Uncle Floyd



Thought the eagle-eye of Chris Lombardi notes Floyd's tuesday evening residency at Colucci's in Haledon, NJ (take that, Feelies), be advised the great man will be appearing November 25 at Uncle Vinnie's in Point Pleasant for what is being billed as "AN ADULTS ONLY SHOW".

Wanted : Singers For A Musical Film




Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch is looking for vocalists for the musical film, 'God Help The Girl' which he has been developing over the last year or so. To do this, he has teamed up with iMeem to conduct a search for female vocalists who are interested in taking part. At the God Help The Girl profile you can read much more about the project and, if you are interested, submit a version of one of two songs for his consideration.

You can read Stuart's introduction to "God Help The Girl" here and even if you are not considering entering - drop by and join up with iMeem to keep up with the project and hear the songs - 'The Psychiatrist Is In' and a  new version of  'Funny Little Frog' as sung by Catherine Ireton.

Good luck!
