Big Heavy World Newzrag #11, December 28, 2000Popcorn And Birthing Classes
So you're back again, begging for more news about local Burlington music. Well we can't disappoint, so we've wrapped everything up in a nice pretty little package for you. We even put a colorful bow and snowman wrapping paper on it. So if that bastard Santa left coal in your stocking, we're here for you. We made our list and checked it twice. And if you have any news you want added next time around, mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org and as always this newsletter was beaten out of Joe "1 2 3 white pony" Atherton. Enjoy!

BIG HEAVY THANKS This time around we would like to thank first and foremost Chris Stecher of Stecher Design Group for the use of his CD burner. Without that wonderful piece of equipment, many of our projects here at BHW wouldn't be going anywhere. Check out www.stecherdesign.com. Thanks also go out to Jeremy Ward of btownsound.com for the installation of his magnificent rack system for our joint broadcasting computer gear. Go to www.btownsound.com for more about what Jeremy is all about. Thanks again to Matt LaBarron and ABC news for putting our ugly mugs on TV last Friday night.

CHAINSAWS.AND.CHILDREN, CHIN HO! LICENSED TO MTV (AGAIN!) Both BHW releases from Chin Ho! and chainsaws.and.children have been licensed for the new season of the Real World on MTV. There's nothing quite like 7 people that hate each other and are stuck in a house together screaming and crying over the sound of "Newthead" or "Always Monica" It's a beautiful thing, people. (Thanks Wilson!)

CHAINSAWS RECORDING FOLLOW UP TO .daca. The above.level.crack.boys in chainsaws.and.children are back at work in Studio Kill-9 recording new material to distribute to the huddled masses. ETA, Summer 2001.

DANISH RADIO STATION NEEDS THE BLUES Are you a struggling blues musician? Would you like to get your stuff out there? Would you like to say, "Yeah, the people overseas just can't get enough of my music"? Well if so, send your stuff to Radio Holstebro, Attn: Kjell Andreassen, Danmarksgade 13, 7500 Holstebro Denmark and who knows, you just might be the next overseas sensation.
WANNA MAYBE GET SIGNED? Go to http://www.themusic.com and submit your best MP3's for review and get immediate consideration for a single song recording contract! They're hoping to have the first signing on New Years Eve, so send your stuff in, and maybe we'll hear you on the radio, blazing up the charts.
ARTISTS, WE WANT YOU! A new art & culture center in Burlington, called Mother MacCree's is looking for someone to design their logo, and the winner gets a $250 cash prize! And even if you don't win, you may still be considered for other projects, call (802) 860-9562 for details.
