As usual on my intergalactic high speed space travel around the wonderful thing we call t'internet I've discovered stuff before it gets released in the real world. Its kinda funny that the internet appears to be a bubble that is 2 months ahead of the actual physical world. Its like we've discovered time travel and noones really mentioned it.
Anyways there's a track coming out on Rong on a super super super limited run of 250 copies and 1 sided. Apparently you can only get a copy from the Rong webstore (but thats "Coming March 2007" - again another example of time travel compadres). So anyways not sure when this beaut is coming out but you can listen to it at the following link. Its by Scotty Coats and Wes The Mes and is called "Doublefisted". Not sure about the title but its a killer disco groove and a bassline that swamps the speakers.
Rong are on a roll at the moment - the new Lee Douglas 12" New York Story is aces and they're also the lucky people to be releasing the Free Blood material. I tried to sign Free Blood back when they had 23 myspace friends last year - things looked pretty good at one point but then they stopped responded to emails and then 6 months later signed to Rong in the US and Adventures Close To Home in the UK. Shame.
