"Film4 and Warp Films bring you I Spit On Your Rave, a mockumentary by director Chris Boyle about the first post-apocalypse zombie music festival" — with Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding as the king zombie, and the opportunity (if you're in the area, which fuck it all I am not) to be part of its massive group of extras.
Coming soon as a tribute/benefit album for Chris Knox following his recent stroke : "So far I’ve received recordings from Lambchop, Lou Barlow, and The Magnetic Fields & am waiting on tracks from David Kilgour, Will Oldham, The Bats, AC Newman, The Mint Chicks, Martin Phillips, Mountain Goats, Jeff Mangum, Olivia Tremor Control, Guided By Voices, Yo La Tengo, Shane Carter, Jay Clarkson, Bill Callahan, Pumice, Alec Bathgate, Jay Reatard, Sky Green Leopards, Graeme Downs, Superchunk, David Pine, Scott Kannenburg, The Able Tasmans, The Tokey Tones, and Psychatrone Rhonedakk ….. and there are still some people who we’re trying to contact or who we are waiting for confirmation from."
Two reasons I've already decided I'm going to Fun Fun Fun Fest this year: Why? and Broadcast. Nuff said?
Promo site for the upcoming book chronicling the 20 year history of Merge, the best bit here being the scrapbook timeline with all kinda awesome photos, trading cards, videos, etc.
