Astonishing Sound Show Stories

A wee while back my good pal Paul at Dig the Fuzz put up the promo video for their new Astonishing Sound Show Stories volume.

Mohair Sweets provided a remix of ``The Green Light`` from the Read Before You Sign EP.

Click in at the 9:00 mark to check out the sample. BOOGIE!

As recently posted the new EP - Dream Filled Nights - is now here and available for sale. Shoot me a note here if you`re interested.
UMFM has played a couple tracks and our other local campus station CKUW now has a copy as well.
Feel free to call and request. Other copies are winging their way to various points around the globe...

The video below was captured at our weekend gig with the FUSE at the WECC here in Winnipeg. Thanks to the Twang Trust for posting.

Coming this week the brand new MOHAIR SWEETS EP - DREAM FILLED NIGHTS!
Running at nearly 15 minutes the new EP features 3 original MOHAIR SWEETS songs and a version of Motorhead's "Black Leather Jacket" which was recorded as a tribute to the late Mick Farren, Lemmy and the legendary Pirates' guitarist Mick Green. Be sure to catch the lyrical reference if you can!

The EP is an extremely limited boutique release (75 numbered) and is available only by contacting Mohair Sweets here or through a couple of local sources. Drop us a line via this blog or check your Facebook pals like Music from the North Shore. Only $10 CDN plus post.
Apologies to those non-local types but that's how things roll in the record biz nowadays.

The band will be playing the WEST END CULTURAL CENTRE in Winnipeg as special guests to THE FUSE. The gig is a fund raiser for Heroes are Human and a tribute the late Ken Barker. Tickets still available here: CONCERT

Another video from the Blues BBQ a couple or so weeks ago. Thx Don. Yes, I know it is "Kilmister", that's part of the gag. To be included on our upcoming EP. Turn it up loud.

MOHAIR SWEETS at the Winnipeg Blues BBQ Fest... Decent crowd for us considering the busy summer weekend here. Be sure to turn it up loud. Back to working on the new EP in the coming weeks. Still hoping for a fall release.

I cannot believe it's been so many months since a post... Winter in the middle of North America will do that to you. Other than some new progress on another MOHAIR SWEETS EP called "ALLSORTS" (most likely late summer/early fall) it's been a stay in and warm kind of time. I see Jesse Hector and the Gorillas get a mention in a new "punk" book. Not sure I agree completely with the captioning but it's great to see them get a mention. I always thought they deserved more. JESSE IN NEW PUNK BOOK Thx to Phil King for that update. CB

Mohair Sweets' DETROIT debut!

Be there or be forever square. CB
