Busy in STARK land...

Posted on November 9, 2008

Hey everyone, What a crazy summer into the almost non-existent fall, now into winter. Gonna be busy with lots of things as we are starting a press and radio campaign this week to FINALLY promote the last record "Put It To Your Head". So many things deterred the promotion but now's the time as we are constantly writing new songs and need to record a new record after the first of the year. Pretty exciting! Now, for immediate issues... Check out Good Times, a Long Island Magazine from early October. There's a great review of STARK. There is also an interview and 2 reviews up on the Swedish website: www.surf.to/skrutt. Thanks to Peter Thorsson--your shirt and new CD's are in the mail.:) We also had recent airplay once again on Radio Gets Wild in the UK. Thanks Dee! Next Thursday, we should be aired on Westside Will Radio at www.westsidewill.com on the Unsigned Artist Showcase. It will be archived following the show. We're playing Tuesday night November 11th for Frank Wood's Birthday and the 5th Day of Wood at The Delancey Bar 168 Delancey at Clinton 11pm following The Sprinkle Genies. Our next (and last show of the year) will be at Fontana's Saturday December 13th 8-11pm STARK at 10, Mongrel Bitch at 9, The Unseen Dream at 8 Lani Ford is playing solo acoustic again this year for the GoGirls MusicFest at Otto's Shrunken Head 538 East 14th Street Saturday November 15th 10:30pm Free but donations accepted for UNOS.“Proceeds from each city's event will benefit the United Network for Organ Sharing. There will be information at each show about donation and how to sign up on the registry in that state. Madalyn Sklar created GoGirlsMusicFest, a series of annual showcase events across the United States. UNOS manages the nation's organ transplant system under contract with the federal government and oversees the world's most comprehensive database of clinical transplant information.” You can still pick up the Women of Rock compilation CD: “MJR Films and Audra Hardt Music present Women of Rock, a fantastic compilation album featuring acclaimed but relatively undiscovered female fronted rock bands from around the globe and is available on Apple iTunes. Hundreds were called but few were chosen. Each featured artist combines a unique singing style with inspired writing talent that makes this compilation a must have for every serious collector.” http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...80747&s=143441 Now, we're trying to get our stuff together to tour the West Coast in late Feb/early March. Any advice, gigs, places to stay, whatever would be so appreciated you might get to see naked body parts...just kidding...or am I? Thanks so much, Lani (pronounced Lane-ey) Kisses, STARK
