joyce from scarce used to work for sassy, did she not? (katrina? it was 
one of those mags....) that would explain that, considering they only 
have an ep and a whole shitload of hard to find indie 7"s in north america.
look for the "red" ep...cd only, and incredible! cheap and easy to 
get...highly recommended!
they have a full-length out in europe right now called "deadsexy" which 
is getting released here in north america on july 30th with *5* new 
additions (5 older/bad versions of some stuff have been removed for 
release here) including yet *another* version of "all sideways", "cry me 
a river" which was a popular one at their shows, "rains of kansas" which 
is hauntingly beatuiful...at least it was live, "salvador sammy" and one 
more i've forgotten. i have the import version, and considering what's 
been removed and what's been added, i'm quite anxious!
this is a band that if you have some cash kicking around and feel like 
taking a chance on something new, you won't regret it! ask practically 
*anyone* who has seen them live!
