After a whirlwind tour, Beulah is taking a much-needed break from their adoring, mostly female fans. Miles, the good-looking guy with the voice, is in Japan for next couple of months, relaxing and doing some press stuff. The rest of the band's kickin' it. No new shows are scheduled for the near future, but watch for a possible tour of Japan in March.
Even cooler -- the boys have started passing tapes of new songs to each other and will start recording in the next few months.
The Beulah Peel session was broadcast on Dec. 15 (Hey, I just heard about it), and it may be possible to listen to it at the John Peel archives. I'll let you know.
Merchandise: 2,000 copies of Handsome Western States have been re-pressed with a new sleeve design. According to Miles, they have no intention of printing up any more. In his words, "It's time to put it out to pasture." Buy it here. They'll also have some T-shirts for sale in month or so.
Upcoming shows: Beulah has a couple of dates with Superchunk on the West Coast in September. Also in the works is a Sugar Free/Jeepster Records showcase at the CMJ Festival in NYC. Oh yeah, some tour photos'll be up as soon as the boys get me some prints.
If you're looking for Handsome Western States, Beulah's 1997 release, it's currently sold out. The band's considering pressing more, so yell for it if you want it.
