"Another celeb-fan!!

... I was just going through the Labels circular and while I was reading the COS part, I remember that the other day on MTV (the prg called MTV New which is the only prg I watch regularly), Pink was presenting her fav videos and at the end of the show, they played "We Don't Play Guitars" video. I thought maybe you find this news (Pink is a big COS fan!) helpful."

Interview in Italian @ GQ

13 november 2003

CoS live at Whelans, Dublin, Ireland:

"The Chicks came on to do an encore; a song called "Water", and playfully threw water off the stage onto the audience. A hot-heated and very dim member of the crowd retaliated by throwing a glass onto the stage. It landed onto the band's Apple Mac laptop, which stored the band's graphics and backing tracks, and broke the screen. The Chicks stormed off the stage, not before irately showering a ream of expletives at the audience." - Fionnuala Finnerty, [the full review]

we were just in barcelona working near to ilpo väisänen's (of pan sonic) place & it looked
really closed up
so we figured he was in the north country (finland).
god that was the hottest weather I have ever been in & that benicassim fest is just another festival, big, stinky, loud. but we did bump
into daniel miller & others that were nice to talk to, but no place
for a good party.
oh porto pots, horror.
hope you are doing good.

we just came back from doing two tracks with dave clarke - he asked us to do vocals - you know we dont do this normally but this was really fun, i think we made at least one hit, the tracks are called 'she's in parties' (reinterpretation by us) and 'disgraceland'. going to roskilde tomorrow... what a rock and roll lifestyle...

what is that merzbow thing??

[it's this, featuring CoS: Various Artists: Ikebana - Merzbow's Amlux Rebuilt, Reused and Recycled (2-CD) IMPREC-016 / Important Records (US), 6 May 2003 -pH]

we never delivered the goods because my computer
got drink spilled on it in the heat of a karaoke party
on gonzales's hotel room in australia, so I could never
extract the track off the hard disk.
here we are in barcelona working with cristian vogel & co.
working on the next record. did anyone tell you about the video we just made?
we didn't see the final edit yet but it is real beautiful & wild.

in berlin but i didn't go -- too bad,
