In the newest issue of Yeti, my interview with Rub-n-Tug's Thom Bullock about the return of disco appears. You may remember it from when it appeared here. The CD included also has a track from Thom (as Way of the Ancients), which the blurb notes is "a lengthy tribute to 'Set Your Controls for the Heart of the Sun.'" Y'mean it's a tribute to Om? Were that not enough, I'm pretty taken with Thom's new studio projects, be they with the son of a Pop art master or as part of a veritable supergroup.

But all week long, post-election, we had been fiending to hear Parliament's "Chocolate City" (cue low gravelly voice: "Someone told me we got LA"). So imagine how stoked we were when Rub-n-Tug took to the decks on Saturday night and greet us with: "What's happening CC? They still call it the White House, but that's a temporary condition, too. Can you dig it, CC?" That three note piano descent and back again. Over and over and over and over and over again. An auspicious start to the night.
