• Yes, we know that there are important albums being released by ELIJAH OCEAN and the new duo of DAVE GUTTER and EVAN CASAS in the very near future. Pfeifle can't review everything in the same week, for Christ's sake, so just lay off and wait till next week.

• Perhaps it was inevitable after the burst appendix, but we just got news that TONY SMOKES AND THE LADYKILLERS are all over. However, OWEN KEITER and KEGAN ZEMA will continue on together under the new moniker: the MOTOR KICKS. The general garage-rock thing won't change, though.

• It's a long time coming, but JAYE DREW's debut album is just about ready. A Moving Train will be released with a gig at the Empire on August 15, featuring special guests KENYA HALL and LADY ZEN.
