Exene scene

Some good news: Exene Cervenka has signed a deal for a new album with Bloodshot Records; Rob Miller of Bloodshot is giddy with delight:

It would not be an overstatement to suggest we would not exist if it were not for our deep and longstanding love of Exene's bands X and the Knitters. Life is good when your heroes, and inadvertent mentors, turn out to be really, really cool off the stage and, through the twists and turns and reverberations of our lives, we get to work together."

Of course, it's not only small labels that get that glow - we understand that there are some tax-specialists accountants that Guy Hands has been thrilled to get the opportunity to work alongside at EMI.
