Matzah's Month of March (Day 1)

Nicky P. has an EP for sale that you can buy, titled "Something to Sell". Order one from Record Collection or pick one up when you go see him play on the Taste of Chaos Tour (Acoustic Tent). You Hotel Cafe enthusiasts (Goob and Aranna especially) will enjoy the work of Nicky P.

Here's the Bio for Nicky P, brought to you from the fine folks at Record Collection:
"Nicky P is 23 years old. Most 23 years olds are fresh out of college and facing the challenges of the "real world" for the first time. Nicky P is not like most 23 year olds. The only reason that up until now you've heard of musicians like John Mayer and Dashboard Confessional and have not heard about Nicky P, is because Nicky has been in rehab and jail. Underneath his model-handsome good looks and perfect pop song structure is a darkness rarely seen in young singer songwriters. And it makes for better songs.... These songs are about life - REAL LIFE - not puppy love. Record Collection is proud to introduce you to Nicky P. The face of the teenage heartthrob is about to change."

I just ordered the Mars Volta "12 from GSL (featuring the non album track Frances the Mute and a live, acoustic version of The Widow). It won't be shipped until March 22, unfortunately, but I can wait.

I also bought "Frances the Mute" by the Mars Volta (Strom Thorgerson did a great job with the artwork), "Group Sex" by Circle Jerks, and "Leave No Ashes" by Burning Brides at Tower Records in Santa Monica today. Next on the list, the first Specials album and old Bronx EPs.
