In the newest issue of Fort Worth Weekly, respected music writer Ken Shimamoto takes on the rather ambitious task of simultaneously delving into the history of avant garde/experimental/new music while tying it in to Fort Worth's increasingly high profile in that community. Also included is a lot of input from Mayyrh Records/Watchers/and Zanzibar Snails' lead oscillator, Michael Chamy, a noted writer in his own right. Check it out here.
Also, look out for the new Zanzibar Snails cd and dvd combination release, featuring over 80 minutes of original music. A release celebration will be held Saturday, May 9th, at Good Records, along with A Smile Full Of Ale and h...n.
