Computers can be nice. Or they can be naughty. Apparently our ISP had some issues with ours, so most of you did not get the last two months newsletters!
If you did, and this is old news, my apologies. I sprinkled some new stuff in, so hopefully there's something for everyone. I try hard to limit these to once a month, so I do apologize..
As you may know, the name skylab2000 comes partially from the US space station called Skylab. Skylab was the United States' first space station back in the 1970's! In 1979 solar activity heated the outer layers of the Earth's atmosphere and increased drag on Skylab, leading to an early re-entry. Nobody was quite sure where it would crash, and there was worldwide panic! In the end it mostly broke apart, and the biggest pieces fell on Australia. The local Australian government fined the US $400 for littering. This bill was never paid, presumably as it was deemed trivial.
The big news today is that this last April - 30 years later, an American radio show paid the fine on behalf of NASA. Now we are finally paid up! And no late fees! Nice Aussies.
If you are a producer and want to send me a track, the new best way is Soundcloud. I have a dropbox on our myspace page - http://myspace.com/skylab2000 - or you can drop things right to me at http://soundcloud.com/skylab2000/dropbox. I've gotten some great tracks already, so keep them coming. If you are a vocalist, definitely send me some vocals, as I am always interested in that.
LIVE VIDEO FROM NEW YORK:
A couple of months ago I played a show in New York, and there's some cool video of it online. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w89rrAn7F-Q
Seems like everyone is Tweeting, so I'm playing along as well. So far we have updates on shows, details of releases and such, and not too much about when I'm making toast. Follow me, and I'll follow you. http://twitter.com/skylab2000
OLD SKOOL FLYERS:
Last, I mentioned this before, but a few months I created a gallery of flyers from parties we have played. Look through this gallery, and see if you remember any of these great events. Don't forget to hit the bottom right arrow on that page to see them all. http://skylab2000.com/flyers/index.html
Due to some unexpected changes...
skylab2000 has some open dates we'd like to fill in July and August. Full LIVE sets are available, as well as selected digital DJ sets for smaller events. If you are doing an event or a club night, please contact us for special pickup show info.
