Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Biding My Time...

The Book of Kills Singles Club is open! If you haven't subscribed...remember, you get an ELEVEN track CD of all new BOK music this month (August), plus 5 or 11 (depending upon the duration of your subscription) more CD singles, each one with at least two previously unreleased tracks! Single #2 (out in September) will feature six recordings, including two previously unreleased live performances, two unused songs from the HUMAN AGAIN sessions, a demo from the DIFFERENT sessions, and an all-new song recorded especially for the single!

I'm hoping that I'll have some time tomorrow (Wednesday) to finish mixing and mastering the songs for the second single. I'd also like to be able to create the insert which should feature four panels again. If you're keeping track, subscribers will have seventeen new recordings after the release of the first two singles alone. That's just seven fewer tracks than were originally announced for an entire one year subscription!

On this day in 1962, Ringo Starr played his first-ever show with John, Paul, and George in Birkenhead, England, after practicing with the band for a grand total of two hours.

Kurt Cobain became a father on this day in 1992.

"I have been doing merch since I was 15 and in bands when I was a teenager - silk-screening shirts, making the emulsion in my mom's closet I converted into a dark room, through college. That's essentially how us bands survived was selling homemade t-shirts." -- Steve Aoki
