It's a game called Keep Away

GO TEAM "Archer Come Sparrow"
GO TEAM "Loneliness March"
GO TEAM "Wonderbirds"

This band was mentioned the other day in a mailing list I post to twice a year, and I obviously referenced 'em myself yesterday, then realized peeps have never heard them (which makes sense as they've never been reissued for some crazy reason) so here's a taste. A crummy sounding taste, but a taste nonetheless. Listening to these songs now, they make me think of a junior high garage band trying to sound like early Pell Mell, their vaguely creepy but lovable shop teacher occasionally singing on top of it all. Awesome!!!

Man I wish I still had these singles -- the packaging alone was gorgeous -- one-sided 7"s with a different month silscreened on the blank side of each, then packaged in a plastic bag like some fancy treat. There was supposed to be one a month, but you know how these things go... (I think I have some of the earlier cassette tapes somewhere too, gotta find those!) FYI, Mike Appelstein's great article remains the first and last word on the band.

PS: Someone explain to me why George Kuchar's beyond-classic Hold Me While I'm Naked is not on DVD. I know it's a short, but sheesh!

thanks so much for posting these. i have a tiny quibble, though - the song you've got labeled "archer come sparrow" is actually "keep-a-way" and i think it's a little slow. or maybe my cassette was always a little fast.

Seeing how it's Calvin Johnston of Beat Happening, and they released all their records (to my knowledge) on K Records, you'd think that label would want to connect their history to current record geeks like us (uh, like me). Jeez, Kurt Cobain even played on one of their singles--wouldn't that be reason enough to reissue these tracks?

I forgot to add: I don't believe any of George Kuchar's stuff is available on DVD, is it? Nor his brother's films, either. Come on, Criterion! Get this stuff out there to the general public!

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
