We’ve been giving Chain & the Gang a lot of love recently, and with good reason! They just released In Cool Blood [KLP240], which is rad, and they’re about to tour the east (and the west, eventually). We just repressed the Cry, Cry, Cry 7” and it’s definitely worth another listen. Have at!

Have you played the blog trivia give-away game yet? This one is a bit of a puzzlesearch-and-find, and if you’re the lucky winner we’ll send you the new Chain & The Gang on vinyl (or CD, if you prefer) and a copy of the Gang’s handmade zine (not for sale. Giveaway item only). Fan fun!
Study the picture above and dig through the K weblog to find the post that ties these seemingly disparate items together (mittens, Ian & Katie, cat head painting) - www.krecs.com/weblog. Send the creation date of the blog-post (its on the top in blue) to email@example.com (new summer intern!) to enter, with your name and address. We’ll post a ridiculous live video drawing next Tuesday, July 3rd, of all of the entries, so you have until then to answer!
