From (the one and only) Killer Pimp:
Before A Place To Bury Strangers there was Skywave, a 3-piece band from Fredericksburg, Virginia. Ollie left to move to NYC and formed APTBS but John and Paul stayed behind and continued on under the name of Ceremony.
While there’s no doubt comparisons to APTBS will be made (they remain good friends and were in the same band, after all), Ceremony are far more focused on making catchy pop tunes than blowing out your eardrums or speakers. Yes it is still loud.
Killer Pimp will release the LP & CD of Rocket Fire in early 2010 and it is being preceded by the 7” single for “Someday” b/w “Cracked Sun.” The 7” is limited to 500 copies and the B-side is exclusive and will not be on the LP or CD.
Ceremony’s “Someday” 7-inch is due January 26.

Waiting for Something [documentary]
Here’s Waiting for Something, a 21-minute documentary on Jay Reatard, shot by Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz last year before the release of Watch Me Fall (via Matador). Definitely worth checking out. RIP, man.
Woods Family Creeps
“Party In The Pines”
Brooklyn’s Woods Family Creeps, a weirdo improv incarnation of Woods, is playing a “one-time only event” at Monkeytown in Brooklyn on January 18. Actually, it’s more like a two-time event, since they’re playing twice that day, once at 8PM and again at 10:30PM. Make your reservation now (seriously)! For you non-Brooklynites, you’ll have to just settle for this track.
