Living Hour describe themselves as “a psychedelic dreampop band from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.” A Twitter user who recommended them described them as very Mazzy Star like, and they both share a certain breathy female twangyness.

Did you ever say to yourself “You know what King Kong needs? Worse special effects, slapstick humor, stock footage, and singing!”
Then Banglar King Kong is for you!
In short, it makes every previous version of King Kong (including the Dino De Laurentiis version) look great by comparison…
Life Model hails from Glasgow, and “Enough (To Know)” hails from their debut EP.
I picked up the later Subterranean chapbook of this, but I missed picking up the original hardback until now:
Blaylock, James p. Doughnuts. Airtight Seels Allied Productions (A.S.A.P.), 1994. First edition hardback, number 11 of 224 signed, numbered hardback copies, a Fine copy (save some waviness to the pages, which I take as a byproduct of the binding process), sans dust jacket with color illustration pasted onto the front board, as issued. In addition to the short story, this volume includes an Introduction by Lewis Shiner, an Appreciation by Lucius Shepard, an Afterward by Tim Powers, illustrations by Phil Parks, and tipped-in color photographs by Vicki Blaylock (and is signed by all of them). An elaborate production, much like all of A.S.A.P.’s hardback chapbooks. Chalker & Owings, Science Fantasy Publishers (2002), 1011. (Also Supplement Two, page 57.) Bought for $60 from a dealer off the Internet.
The History of Colour TV are based in Berlin and another St. Marie Records band.
…but you’ll never be “Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark delivering a bionic arm to a seven year old boy” cool…
I just sold my most recent story, “Saul’s Diary,” to Mike Resnick for Galaxy’s Edge.
This is the second story I’ve sold to Mike, following “Huddled Masses” to the Alternate Presidents anthology way back in the dim mists of the 1990s.
Presants for Sally is UK band and another part of the St. Marie Records stable. Here they are with “A Touch of Joy, a Touch of Sadness.”
I’ve mentioned Llamas with Hats before. While I wasn’t looking, the people at Filmcow went out and completed the saga.
The verdict? Eh. The combination of humor and disturbing off-screen violence of the first few hit the spot, but they gradually cranked up the disturbing while sidelining the humor.
Not the choice I would have made.
Here are all twelve for your viewing pleasure.
Three is still the funniest.
