Statistics tell the sad tale: People seldom visit this site anymore. Nevertheless, thanks to September’s Golden Era, when people were downloading like crazy, IUMA recently sent along a quarterly royalty check in the amount of $1.93–nearly 70 times more cake than the previous time around! Rest assured that all profits, after taxes, will be carefully invested for the future. Improvements here since last time include a couple MP3s from the new LP: “Pardon Your French” and a re-recording of the 1997 chestnut “What Was I Gonna Do?” Also, near the bottom of this page we’ve added a definitive track listing for all the Thunderegg CDs, which were remastered this past summer. Now you know where to find all the songs you never knew existed in the first place. If you haven’t yet requested your copy of THE ENVELOPE PUSHES BACK, Thunderegg’s 7th studio album, what are you waiting for? It’s FREE–just click “Band e-mail” and send your mailing address. So far there are 36 more or less satisfied customers and the album is on its 3rd printing.

We had the whole high-speed DSL thing all ready to go yesterday, but at the last minute Verizon pulled out of the deal, saying the phone lines in this particular barrio can’t accommodate our thunder. Disappointment. And a suspicion that there are certain neighborhoods where the phone company just isn’t trying. Who can blame the fans if page viewership is way down (Rank: high 6000s)? There hasn’t been anything new up here for a while. But have you listened to every single song? At a spontaneous busking gig on the downtown platform of the Broadway/Lafayette subway station on Sunday–net profit slightly under $3–positive crowd response was most pronounced after 1996’s sleeper “Supergirlfriend.” So this week we’re featuring it, along with a few others you might have missed. And the offer still stands: Send your address, receive a limited collectable first edition of the new LP. (An LP, incidentally, that certain members of Thunderegg have never heard, while at the same time others wish to never hear again.) Major full-band sessions direct from the Manchester (CT) scene are imminent. Thanks for checking in every now and then. You won’t regret being at the forefront of this movement, and your attention is greatly appreciated.
