1. Wampus Ramps Up for New Releases
2. Arms of Kismet Wraps Tour
2. Get the Good Stuff: Releases from Wampus


U.S. indie label Wampus Multimedia is preparing eight new releases for
2004. A schedule of at least one release per month will continue through
2005. Filling the slate for this year:

-- Friction / The Complete Friction, PDF (June)
In 1989-1994, Wampus published oodles of innovative contemporary fiction.
Distributed nationally, the quarterly Friction magazine counted Kurt
Vonnegut among its paid subscribers. Wampus will offer the whole enchilada
(18 issues) in affordable electronic format.

-- Cafebar 401, CD (June)
Brimming with darkly sweet pop hooks, Cafebar 401 blends Bowie-esque vocal
presence with danceable grooves rooted in Euro-rock. Their relentlessly
contemporary sound calls to mind Coldplay, Masters of Reality, Muse, Beck,
Soulwax, Radiohead, and Queens of the Stone Age. Don't want to wait for the
release? Get it now:


-- J.T. Bowman & Lerlene Stackwood, CD EP (July)
Rollicking like the illegitimate love child of Toby Keith and Faith Hill,
this "love suite" is a mischievous valentine to country music. Wildly
tuneful, it's Nashville pop for now people.

-- Wampeters / Bloodline, remastered, CD (August)
Originally released in 1993, this songwriting watershed finally sounds
like it should have in the first place. A literate curio of acoustic pop.

-- Arms of Kismet / Cutting Room Rug -- Outtakes from Eponymous, CD
When Arms of Kismet's Eponymous came out earlier this year, it featured 10
tracks. What it didn't include was the 10 songs that missed the cut. Here
they are.

-- Donnie / Kissing the Kaaba, CD (October)
Conceived in the mid-'90s, this cycle of a midwestern boy's unlikely
spiritual pilgrimage to Mecca predated John Walker Lindh's quest by years,
not months. Produced in 2004, it's a gut-busting classic for our times.

-- Wampeters / Pagan's Nest, remastered, CD (November)
Originally released in 1990, this eclectic juggernaut was packed with
subversive toe-tappers. Hear it the way it was supposed to sound at the

-- Doctor Peyote's Shagtime All-Stars, CD EP (December)
Sometimes pop music needs a bullet right between the eyes. Don't look now,
but here it comes.
