350 Heads on a... 305 Engine

The Whigs Right Hand on My Heart video has been released - the video was shot here in Athens, Ga. Here's a YouTube version.
Remember - The Whigs on Conan O'Brien: Tonight FEBRUARY 20th.
Also - Pitchfork Media gave Mission Control a 7.0.

Ghostmeat Records is back - so to speak (they actually never left in the first place and have been releasing the stellar AthFest compilation every year). Flagpole profiles their new releases - albums from Lona, Russ Hallauer and William Tonks.

This is old news to some, but cool nonetheless.
Somehow based around the video game "Rock Band", an video series came through Athens and interviewed among others the prolific Jeff Tobias and We Vs. The Shark. There's also some great footage of the Orange Twin Compound and an interview with Laura Carter.
