hFixmer/McCarthy - the US Tour Start with trouble
so even before the tour has started FM had a lot of unexpected trouble. The both NYC Shows at Rothko Club had to be canceled because the Rothko Club has been closed by the fire marshal and there are police outside the venue to make sure no one gets in. The first show could be transferred to the Sin-E Club New York, the second show had to be canceled definitely. The next US dates aren't affected. The guys are on the road now to play the next show in Austin.

13.Aug 2004
today i've received email from maven. I send back some questions about maven and as soon as i received the facts, i'll create a separate Maven Infopage. Thanks to Andrew.

Jack from Primes wrotes the following to me:

My name is Jack and I play in an electronic "punk" band called PRIMES from Vancouver Canada. We're having one hell of a time trying to get a hold of someone regarding the publishing of Nitzer Ebb's "Let Your Body Learn". We are scheduled to be releasing a run of 500 12"s this fall and we were inquiring about putting a cover of that song on the record and what the licensing, etc. would be to do that. We're a pretty DIY band and I'm not sure if this release would really generate income. We, however, thing the track is fantastic and had fun reworking a very noisy version of the track.

We really want to release this cover as more of an homage thing and don't want to step on any toes in terms of rights and publishing. The record is scheduled to come out on a Canadian label called Global Symphonic in October 2004 as a first of a few singles and then an LP/CD coming out in early 2005. I would, upon cover approval, be more than happy to let you post news on that single as I think some fans would get a kick out of our version. I'll let you know as soon as I hear from Mute's end, as well as provide you with a preview link of the track.

More News about the release as soon as i received the informations! Thanks to Jack!
