October Updates (UK mag write up)

030

Just a few developments in our camp, pretty significant stuff though. First of all the biggest news is that our Wendy is moving to the desert! She’s been dreaming about it for some time now and you know how we artists like to make our dreams as much a reality as possible, so yes, our fearless leader is going ‘out there’ to find the stuff that dreams are made of.

Andalusia Rose ‘Desert Happenings’

This doesn’t mean the band is breaking up, on the contrary, we plan to finish this next recording which should result in our first full length release, lawd willin’ and if we can continue to raise enough funds to make it a reality. We’ve been doing this all on our own, with tiny bits of money coming in via merch sales and gig money etc. so we’re forced to record in batches which is tedious but necessary. We estimate a release by sometime in 2017!


FIREWORKS MAG ISSUE #76

The other update we have for you is that we were once again included in a UK publication called Fireworks Magazine. Our track ‘Let it Shine’ appears on the cd that accompanies the mag and also within’ the same cd (enhanced) is a pdf of an interview Wendy did with Nick Baldriani which we took the time to convert into a viewable format for your reading pleasure!

That’s all for now, no shows on the horizon as part of this transition means that we will be more selective with the shows we take on with Wendy being much farther away, so they have to be worth it. We also plan to focus more on getting this recording in the can and eventually pressed up and in your hands, ears and hopefully your hearts asap!

As mentioned earlier, we are operating independently with no outside help from labels or distro, so if you have any desire to help us continue to operate, please support our Bandcamp page, we have vinyl and cds available as well as high quality downloads, t-shirts and art prints by Wendy! If you have a friend who likes good music, pass it on!

I believe in Art (An interview with Wendy)

We are currently working on raising more money to get some more studio time, so not much to report on that end. We recently played in San Jose at JJ’s. It was the first time there for us and we had a good time as always.

Following is another interview with our front lady Wendy, this time in a blog called “I Believe in Art” and since art is as much a part of what we do, it is really nice to have interest and coverage that focuses on this:

Not too much else to report right now other than some interest and a potential piece in another UK magazine (an actual print mag) though more on that as it develops!

Next show Reno!

Andalusia Rose on Radio Valencia!

From a recent review of  ‘First Stone’ on itunes:

Real Music!!: by Mikeymac420

“I heard “Let It Shine” on an alternative college radio station and recorded the song on my phone to sort through the lyrics and figure out who it was later. I can tell you with all my heart I am so glad I did and it was worth the half hour search. The whole album is killer. I would have bet this was some untapped gem from 92′. But its barely a year old which gives me hope for the future of music. Great, great stuff. Can’t wait for more to come!!” (Mikeymac420)

RADIO VALENCIA

Last Sunday Wendy and Jeff went down to Ye Olde Mission District in SF to chop it up with Malderor on his show Malderor’s Curated Catastrophe. We covered everything from the origins of the band to some influences on our sound and the art of it all. We both brought a stack of music, mostly vinyl and had a blast spinning some of our favorite music. As an extra special treat we even offered a ‘sneak listen’ of some of what we are currently working on. We were also joined by DJ Deathwish who added some humor and also has a show called Cheap Hooch on Radio Valencia.

Another thing we spoke about was our new favorite local band The Electric Arrows who we recently played a couple of shows with, most recently at The Hemlock. Check out some of their brand of Soulful music in this collage of clips from that night, shot by our bassist Jeff.

Our Southwest Roadtrip and Wendy’s Interview!

We recently went on a short road trip, playing Los Angeles, Joshua Tree, Tucson, Bisbee, and Las Vegas. The trip was a blast, and we had the good fortune of having Ames Flames, “Roadie to the Stars,” on board with us for the tour! What a difference it made having someone helping us out, and it didn’t hurt that he had some great stories to tell as well. Here we are after it all, dropping Ames off at his home in the hills of downtown Los Angeles, quietly looking down on the city from high above.

Wendy and her old pal Jo-Ann Rogan of Philly punk rock band Thorazine, recently did an interview which aired on East Coast radio station WESU, 88.1FM on Dec. 8th, by Cyma Shapiro. The focus of the interview, called “Front Women of Alternative Rock,” was women over 40 in rock and roll. Hear them talk about sexism and/or the lack thereof, touring pre-GPS, and where inspiration continues to come from. Click here for the archived link!
