THE GLASSPACK Army news December 2004

Created by Klaus Kleinowski |

First off, THE GLASSPACK would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It's been a while since we gave you a full report on what is going on in the Glasspack world. Here's the breakdown:

THE GUYS!    

Dirty Dave has been busy trying to find some shelter before he fades away. He is always looking for freelance design work and has very reasonable prices for designs such as cover art, posters, stickers, buttons, t-shirts, etc... Contact Dirty by e-mail at dirtydave@theglasspack.com . He has just finished the full design package for his side-project, Dirty Bird, and 4 Walls Records. He is writing new material for a new full-length to be recorded sometime 2005 for THE GLASSPACK. Brett is busy going to school for his video skills and has finished the Glasspack's movie "American Exhausted" and is selling it from his e-mail clawdad69@yahoo.com . Available on VHS or DVD, the movie features The Captain's view of the Glasspack's first U.S. Tour in the fall of 2001 to support their first full-length "American Exhaust" on Riverock/4 Walls Records. Todd has been doing a lot of homework and resting. He is practicing for the Slint Reunion to be held February 2005. They are to be curators of the "All Tomorrows Parties" festival in UK and original bass player, Todd Brashear, will not be part of the line-up. They may also be doing a tour, who knows.

THE GLASSPACK’S MUSIC ON MTV'S "VIVA LA BAM" SHOW!

In case you haven’t been watching and/or listening to "Viva La Bam" on MTV, the Dec. 5th episode featured some music by the Glasspack, tracks "Peepshow" (which features Monster Magnet's Ed Mundell on guitar) and "Lil' Birdie" from this years Small Stone Records’ release "The Glasspack/Bridgeburner." Also heard on the show, were tracks from Small Stone bands Puny Human, Tummler, and Milligram. Apparently, the Viva La Bam crew have the entire Small Stone catalog so it is likely you will hear more Small Stone music throughout the season. Check http://www.MTV.com for air times and more info on the show.
