Three songs from 10 Neurotics in the mySpace player

I just uploaded three songs to our player at mySpace: "Sailor Boy," "Inch Worm," and "Rotten Zurich Cafe." You get to hear all three of the vocalists on 10 Neurotics, Athan, Laurie & Nicki.

Tuesday, August 25 is the digital release for 10 Neurotics. It is available at, itunes, eMusic and elsewhere. Ringtones are available from, the explicit songs can only be seen by registered users who have taken off the explicit content filter.

The European digital release will be a bit later. Germany's Trisol Records is releasing 10 Neurotics for Europe and I hear their digital company has been a bit swamped. It will be up soon. The Trisol edition will have a different cover from the American edition; see both and the inside pages and links to the models and photographers, here.

I have been startlingly busy the last two weeks. Rehearsing for the Boston show, figuring out the offer for the Mexico City show, doing interviews for Ascension, Zillo and Gothic Beauty. On Friday, I shot the final scene for "The Pleasure in the Pain" video, and I am editing this weekend. Nicki is finishing up her West Coast shows with Jill Tracy. Behind the scenes, I have been setting up promotions with our distributor (see the Newbury comics signed booklet promotion), planning more interviews, sending out cds to Clubs and DJs and taking care of the hundreds of other things that are involved in releasing an album. It's all worth it! I have received some really wonderful responses from fans who have heard the music. You make all the effort worthwhile. Thanks so much for your love!

Brian told me a fan came up to him at the World/Inferno show in Bristol, England, with a copy of 10 Neurotics to get his autograph. Wow! That's dedication. ; )
