STOPGAP SAM HAS BEEN RELEASED!
Hard copies arrived on January 5 and I began mailing those out immediately. The Bandcamp release dropped on January 11.
I've posted song and album links on Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin.
On December 12 I got my first request for the song Rip Van Twinkle from the Indie Criollo blog.
In a rough translation from the Spanish:
"Hell guitars. Rip Van Twinkle is like traveling into the dark with rock guitar in hand. The sound project puts us in a particular situation, full of guitar solos and a small drum base in the background, with the pleasure of an instrumental song that seems taken from best progressive rock proposals we have found. A standing applause to Dino DiMuro."
Last Day Deaf's column appeared on December 15:
