The Champs (with Tim Green) will be touring the US in April and May.
Decomposition will be distributing the fantastic 4-song 7" by Erase Errata, one of the best new live bands in the SF area, as soon as their 2nd pressing comes in. It's out on Inconvenient Recordings.
Also up for distribution soon will be the 16-song self-released debut by The Quails (with ex-Electrolette Julianna Bright), titled "We Are the Quails", tentatively set for release May 2001.
Hopefully available for distribution once it comes out will be the new Deerhoof 7" on Nothing Fancy Just Music, the label of xbxrx. And speaking of xbxrx, be sure to catch them if you're in the bay area because they are amazing (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info):
