Hi everybody,
We just thought that we'd let everybody on e-mole know about our upcoming Record Release Show for our 2nd album "The Love Parade". To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're playing at SUPERMARKET 268 Augusta Avenue, Toronto on Sunday March 18th DOORS OPEN: 8PM - SHOWTIME: 9PM ADMISSION: $8. Normally we perform as duo, but for this special occasion, we'll be performing as a 4-piece with Cleave Anderson on drums/electronic percussion and Scott E. Farmer (on loan from The Russian Futurists) on bass/synth.Opening the show will be our friend, Simone Grey. We hope some of you can come by, as we hardly EVER play live. Just remember, as it's a Sunday, it's an EARLY show, so don't come late or you'll miss it! cheers richard+francoise, LOLA DUTRONIC

A message from Monorail Music

"Benoit Textile Tribute / Celebration @ Mono Sun 18th March

The people of Mono and Monorail were saddened to hear of our friend Benoit's passing last January. For those of you who didn't know Benoit, he co-owned the French label Textile and was an incredible personality. It is only appropriate we celebrate his life with music. Bill Wells, The One Ensemble Of Daniel Padden, Foxface, Bubblewrap Holocaust, Fiend and George Burt (all of whom have been associated with the Textile label) will perform live at Mono, Sunday 18th March (that's tomorrow!). This event is of course free, not only to friends of Benoit but to anyone who shares the enthusiasm he had for music. Hope to see you there. It'll be a blast!"

Blimey... that lot should keep you amused while I try to address the nature in which I oughtta tackle the backlog. First instinct is to head for the pub but i'll try to quell that... (he typed, willing the phone to ring). Actually, Monk is on today though, so that's good for a 40 minute procrastination. At least.
