JOHN PAUL was back in town last week, and not just to play a gig at the Empire. He brought his band, the COURTSHIP, with him from LA (the California one) and they spent a week with JONATHAN WYMAN working on a new record. No word on a time-table for release, but expect something in the not-too-distant future. Last time he went Nashville. We'll see where Wyman takes him.

DEAD SEASON have found their bassist: CHRIS MICHAUD, formerly of UNCLE JACK and FUNNEL. Shouldn't be long before they're gigging in earnest again.

• You've got a chance to catch a new project featuring WEAVE (of 6GIG and RULER OF THE RAGING MAIN), the MILK BROTHERS, playing with the still-new-themselves MURCIELAGO, and the CLASS MACHINE this Friday at the Empire. An eclectic show, that. The Milk Brothers are old-time jam at the moment, with a lot of Allman and Dead influences, but a bit of the P-Funk, too.

• Keep an ear out for a DESOLATE GRACE EP — they say it'll be appearing sometime this month.
