First, the ‘bad news’: S C H M O Ehas left the Cyclops Eye Music label nest and opted to sign with White label Music (WLM). They will be releasing an album (cd & digital) on the label in 2012. This bad news is actually good news for both S C H M O E and Cyclops Eye Music (and all its artists and (ahem!) would be artists), for it presents opportunities to reach larger audiences and such attention might find its way into the backwaters of our very own nest (of vipers) and the musical delights within [for more in this see the gossip section below]. Keep your eyes and ears out for S C H M O E in 2012. GO S C H M O E!
So what’s the good news? And, if the bad news was good, is this good news really bad?
Maybe. You’ll not know until it’s too late in any case…unless you heed those warnings in the back of your mind and stop reading right now. Farmer Joe & The Ignorant Corpses, fresh from their foray into film (if you haven’t seen, do see Used To Be Genius (explains a lot, that title)), have delved into their back shelf and added a new single to their ever ongoing project album ‘a spurt of adam’. It’s called Strawberry Cow and there’s a video. Per usual disclaimer, risk at your own enjoyment.
Okay, the promotion is done, now for some gossip.
Since S C H M O E contains one half of Farmer Joe & The Ignorant Corpses (Joe & Dave The Wave), the question suggests itself: how much attention will they pay their other half (Fink & Mikos) during S C H M O E’s sojourn under the WLM banner?
Was the title of FJIC’s last album, Used To Be Genius, an epitaph?
Maybe the release of Strawberry Cow at this juncture points to another, (perhaps more terrible) revelation. The video and the song feature Mikos…
Perhaps, in lieu of losing a child, Cyclops Eye Music shall gain two more (ahem!). Prognosticative ears and eyes peer into the mists to perceive the unknown. Will Mikos and Fink sink so low as to go solo?
