Death to Austin!

posted November 6th, 2009

Papa M performs "Live From a Shark Cage"

posted November 5th, 2009

This just kicked in! Papa M will be resurrecting his classic Live from a Shark Cage at All Tomorrows Parties on Saturday, December 12th at Butlins Holiday Centre. This is a part of the All Tomorrow's Parties ten year throwdown, and Live from a Shark Cage (released in '99) has done ten years of business for us - so they're perfectly matched! The CD has passed away into the annals of time, but you can buy the LP here, or a nice FLAC... (read more)

Call ‘em what you like, we’ve got enough releases to transform the most benign of months into a musical fest surpassing all yer pathetic generic boundaries. Still, with a lineup that included Monotonix and OM, how could we not call September a month of purest rock? And with Espers, Alasdair Roberts, the music of Gnawa and singles from Bonnie Prince Billy and Bachelorette, how could October be anything but a month where we roll on to new pastures of...

Welcome once again to Drag City’s monthly update! Sure, since the last time you heard from us, you’ve heard from everyone else — well, let’s see…half a dozen times a day on Twitter, Facebook updates, then all those texts times…something like a month a half – Good Lord, we’ve been quadrupi-lapped (at least!) by the rest of the world!

After years of research and development, not to mention trial and error, agony and ecstasy, love and theft, petty crime and extreme punishment, and pillaging with a refreshing lack of raping, here’s your fresh and of-the-now Drag City website. The possibilities are endless with this baby — if only it didn’t look like every other website out there! Ah, well — at least when we look at it, we know that each and every pigment in the color spectrum is made up of pure... (read more)
