On wednesday, Trashcan Darlings will perform at a benefit show, at John Dee in Oslo.
It´s called Project 101, and you´ll find all the info you need here: www.prosjekt101.no
The line up:
ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS
A double cd (with an empty cd-r!) should be out in the stores this month.
Trashcan Darlings were supposed to be on it, but it looks like it just wasn´t enough space,
that´s why they´ve added the empty cd-r, so you can add your own favourites. Clever solution!
Bands include the Backstreet Girls, Valentourettes, Turbonegro, Amulet, We and many many more!
And the price is only 101 nok!
This weeks recommendation, though it´s been in the shops for a awhile:
Einar Stenseng debut album on Big Dipper Records,
featuring Nikki Sudden and Darrell Bath!
Get it now!

I just can´t help it but think that this time of year, is a real nice one!
I always get a tear in my eye, when I see the commercial for the NRK Tv-Sports,
and they´re playing `Her Kommer Vinteren´ (Here Comes Winter) by Jokke.
And as I´ve lately listened to the Jokke tribute, `Det Beste Til Meg Og Mine Venner´
(All The Best To All My Friends), Turbonegro´s version of that song, is pure gold!
Last, but not least -
Last wednesday, Chuck Berry was 80 years old, and still going strong!
