Help A.N.M. make their recording goal…

8th Apr 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

A.N.M., the new supergroup formed by Jimi Hazel & Rick Skatore of 24-7 Spyz, dUg Pinnick of King’s X (pictured to the left), Phil D. Fish of Fishbone and others, is fishing for fan-supported recording budget.  1,860 people pre-order the new record for $20, and it gets done.  Find out more over at the Help ANM Record Blog.

My $20 is in the can.  Hopefully they can raise enough to get the album out in 2010.

French-popsters Clare and the Reasons now have a digital boxset… their first two albums (The Movie and Arrow) and Live in Paris, all for $19.  Check it out at Frog Stand Records.

Seattle-area indie singer-songwriter Damien Jurado also just put his newest up for pre-order.  It’s called Saint Bartlett, and with the pre-order, you get an immediate download (the physical version comes out at the end of May).  To find out more, check out Secretly Canadian Records.

Ty Tabor’s Something’s Coming (out now)

23rd Mar 10 (Tue) 2 comments

I got King’s X guitarist Ty Tabor‘s newest solo album, Something’s Coming, in the mail yesterday.  Once through, I love it (as if there would be any doubt).  It features Jimi Hazel and Rick Skatore from 24-7 Spyz, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal from Guns N’ Roses, and Wally Farkas of Galactic Cowboys and Xenuphobe.  You can get it over at Molken (mp3 download or the better option… a physical CD).

As reported on Blabbermouth

Jimi Hazel — guitarist, vocalist and producer of acclaimed heavy metal soul band 24-7 SPYZ — has announced the formation of what is now being billed as the “first black supergroup” called A.N.M. (a.k.a. ANTI N***ER MACHINE).

The band’s lineup is as follows:

  • Doug Pinnick (KING’S X): Vocals
  • Jimi Hazel (24-7 SPYZ): Guitar, Vocals
  • Rick Skatore (24-7 SPYZ): Bass, Vocals
  • Spacey T (SOUND BARRIER, FISBONE): Guitar, Vocals
  • Greg Fulton (CYCLONE TEMPLE, RWA): Guitar, Vocals
  • Phil D. Fish (FISHBONE, WICKED WISDOM): Drums, Percussion

Commented Jimi: “This is gonna be a beautiful thing and we will drop some of the heaviest, funkiest and crunchiest music heard in a long time! I’m honored to be a part of music making history with my brothers and I know that people will be more than happy when they hear what comes from us!

A.N.M. is currently talking to labels in search of a home for what will become one of the highly anticipated releases of 2010. The band plans to spend the winter writing and recording and hopes to release a CD in late spring or early summer.

I dug the Doug collaboration with 24-7 Spyz (back in 1996) on Heavy Metal Soul By the Pound.  With Doug on lead vocal duties and Fishbone members in the mix, this promises to be pretty damn good.  I’m not too fond of their band name.  I mean, I understand the meaning and where they’re coming from.  I just don’t necessarily “prefer” their choice.  Regardless, I bet the music will be great.
