While I'm supplying lost music from Siblingshot On the Bleachers, you might be interested in the literary endeavors that Ian Begg (IB) was working on as he was away from the musicblog world.

His first release is A Reign on Chimney Poets: Meditations On & Off the Bleachers. His second release is Safe as MILF: Selected Poems - Missives On & Off the Bleachers. A third release is in the works, Piggies: A Novel - Off the Bleachers.

The first two are available from SibLINGSHOT PRESS LTD. & can be purchased online through Amazon, Waterstones in the UK & AbeBooks in the US or other retail outlets. The easiest way to get a copy is to simply leave a comment at https://siblingshot.wordpress.com/ to secure your signed & personalised softcover copy direct from the author, subject to availability. & as a favor to Frenz of NSS, the first person to order either book can get a free copy of either book just by mentioning that you heard about it here. Limit 1 (one) copy to the first person who buys either book.

Musick that Needed Work - P: Pow Wows


Started in 2010, the Pow Wows are out of Toronto, Ontario: Chris (guitar & vocals) & Jon (drums) McCann, Ryan Rothwell (bass & vocals). They're garage punks. They're on the preeminent Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's garage punk label Get Hip

Chock full of addictive hooks, hot-wired fuzz guitars, & pounding rhythms that hearken back to the underworld of  60s Garage & 70s Punk while remaining undeniably fresh and modern.


Pow Wows - Shock Corridor 7", Get Hip Recordings GH258, 2013.
