Here is a cool interview with Justin Maurer. He talks about his new book Seventeen Television, The Clorox Girls, and living in L.A. There’s even brief mention of his time in the Red Dons. Buy his books & records! They are the best.
Richard Joachim is now drumming for both the Revisions and the Red Dons. This is not the first time that Joachim and Burns have worked together. Joachim played drums briefly in the Speds and the Observers. He has made the transition from one drummer to the other a very smooth process and we are all very excited that he is now in the band. Here is a song entitled This City from our upcoming LP, Death to Idealism coming out this summer on Deranged Records featuring Joachim on drums.[audio:This_City.mp3]
The Escaping Amman 7″ is off to the pressing plant and will come out on Deranged Records in April. For a sneak peak at two of the songs off this four song ep, check out our “Sounds” page. We are also gearing up to record an additional ep next week. That record is coming out on Green Noise Records. In April and May the Red Dons will be touring North America with the Clorox Girls. Be sure to check out our “Shows” page for dates. The Revisions may play select dates on that tour too. Hopefully we’ll see you at one of the shows.
