Do you have a copy yet. Just waiting for State Records to get their supply.Not sure if they're physically circulating yet or still at printers.

New issue out, got mine Saturday. Great Randy Holden lead feature -- someone whose name I've always known but that's about it, and the whole story about the Population II album is arguably much more interesting than the Blue Cheer stint. Also, bonus info on what exactly Sunn (the original amp company) was all about.

Also stepping back an issue, that Lost and Found lead feature was a hell of a thing, easily another big 'keeper' of a piece among their best.

waiting for State Records to get them again.
I have taht Randy Holden Population II somewhere. I think there was an interview with Perfect Sound Forever about 15 years ago where he was talking about Lebanese influences which he shared with Dick Dale he was also in the other Half who may be getting a reissue sometime in the near future.

ooh i gotta read that
I think the Other Half album is underrated but I seem to be in the minority... but it had a vibe kind of like the Savage Resurrection where you feel like they captured the moment garage/psych crystallized into something heavier.

that Randy Holden interview is something else ... I can't understand why the Population II duo of guitarist + simultaneous drummer and keyboardist didn't work out
part 2 of the Lenny Kaye interview is great, especially the part about ghosting Waylon Jennings' autobiography

New one just dropped into my letterbox yesterday.I think State records may be the only place in the UK who have it now. Not sure if you needed to prebook a copy.Had happened to walk into Rough Trade East on the day of teh Flying Luttenbachers show over Xmas and saw it on th ecounter. Not sure what else is actually open anyway.
Anyway great stuff.
