The only confirmed points of sale are at the Australian gigs.

They are doing HMV signings, so I'd assume HMV would be selling them on the day, but whether they'll stock them regularly or if they will make it out of Aus is yet to be confirmed.

There is also a rumour that 'The Bens' will make it to the US, in which case I'd expect the EP to be sold there too. That *is* just a rumour though!

OK, a big big BIG shout out to Chris Horgan of www.chrishorgan.com

Chris tuned in to an aussie station 'Triple J' and heard them play an interview with Ben Kweller, and track one of the upcoming EP!

What's even more, is he's recorded it and kindly sent them to me!

So, before going any further, just say out loud, whereever you are, "Chris Horgan OWNZ!"

Done that? Right, proceed:

The EP Tracklisting:
1. Just Pretend
2. Exfire (?)
3. Stop
4. Bruised

The interview with Ben Kweller:

The song, 'Just Pretend'

The lyrics are on the Transcription Board.

Remember, Chris Horgan OWNZ.

~A, very pleased to be unleashing these.

Muchos Gracias pianoman.

We brits recently switched to British Summer Time (BST) which is GMT+1, so it'll be 11am over here.

Time zones are so confusing. I vote that we all have the same time, and simply rearrange our schedules. And also go metric.

What ever happened to that unified world time thing that Swatch were pushing? and 'Internet Time'... I never got the hang of that.

News / The Bens on Triple J
« on: April 03, 2003, 06:04:37 PM »
(I'll post this on the news page closer to the time)

The Bens are appearing this Monday (April the 7th) on Australian radio station Triple J (the station that brought us "Just Pretend" via Chris Horgan).

It's going to be an edited version of the Melbourne gig, cut down to fit in the hour alotted for the show, and also to get rid of any swears, I'd assume.

It's on at 8pm Australian Eastern time. I'm not sure when that is for the rest of the world, but I'll find out before I repost it to the main news in a couple of days.

Incidentally, if you know, hit 'reply' ;)

That's awesome Chris, Thanks a lot!

Incidentally, does anyone else think Live Lee sounds a little like Sledge?

If we could find a sponsor, that'd be the trip of a lifetime.

Any takers? Alright, I want you to all find a partner and stick together. Make sure to have your permission slips to hand and... Mr. Harper! Keep your hands to yourself!

And also, why the hell does the "one(1)" LawSpeak exist? Was there some case in years gone by where someone successfully sued someone else over "one" actually meaning 12?

PS Since when did I have >1000 posts?

Thought this might be of interest to some folk:

Incidentally, do my eyes decieve me or are Folds and Kweller becoming the same person?

That's so awesome! Thanks Terp (and Grey)! I did have that site open and hit refresh every now and again, but then I got caught up in things that I should have been doing.

Have YOU ordered YOURS yet?

PS At work = I can't hear the clips! I think I'm going to go mad!

Hey dude. Welcome!

To start a new thread click "new thread" on the top right of the threads list just above the "last post" column.

To stay on topic: Is anyone else mentally referring to "3 EPs" as "Threepees"?

In any case: WOO!!!
