Ptolemaic Terrascope has been to us what the monolith in 2001 was to the apes. Thanks to its influence we now know to beat each other with jawbones when settling arguments. But seriously, we love the zine and all it stands for so we were happy to see a belated review for both “Bag of Hammers” and “Assault on the Vault of the Ancient Bonglords” ( http://www.terrascope.co.uk/Reviews/Reviews_November_13.htm#LP4 ) by the much too kind Simon Lewis which, along with the review of the summer EP back in July by the illustrious Jeff Penczak (link), gives us a better season than our local football team. There is also a very short shout-out in the print edition of The Wire from the super all around nice guy Byron Coley which is always neat to me because I used to read reviews from him back in university and his recommendations would often end up on my list when I’d go to the record store.
And speaking of records stores… it was nice to get an order for our summer 7″ from House of Records over in Eugene, Oregon which we thought was kind of neat because well, we just love indie record stores. We’re blessed in Houston to have some great ones like Cactus and Vinal Edge who we love dearly but it’s always nice to hear from stores outside out fair state. Here is a little preview for a doc on HOR. Check it out. Cheers, y’all.
