Mike Shupp listed in The Washington Post “Night Lights of 97” top 20 live performances!
Mike Shupp / “October Sun” CD is receiving radio play on 25 stations nationally, and has just charted #30 at KIDE and KMXT !! It’s in medium rotation at CMJ core reporters WUVT (Virginia Tech), and WQFS (Greensboro, NC), and light rotation at KUNM, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, at 100,000 watts!
Shupp track “Without You” appears on the CMJ compilation CD “Certain Damage”, included with the Nov 3rd CMJ New Music Report, alongside tracks by David Bowie, Radiohead, and Patti Smith.
The band just finished cutting two new tracks for a forthcoming 7 inch single at Mike Harvey’s , “A Little Fun” b/w “October Sun” (yes, that’s right – the song for which the debut CD is named, but which didn’t make it onto the disc). The tracks were recorded and mixed at Actiondale over several late night sessions this past week, and mastered by Mark Edmondson at South Moon Productions. The single marks the first recorded performances of the new band line-up, Chris Zogby on drums, Harry Dailey on bass, Buddy Speir on guitar and backing vocals, and Mike on guitar and vocals. Promo cassette and 7 inch vinyl versions should be ready by the end of the month – but if you can’t wait, you can order a limited edition promo cassette version on-line or mail order right now!
