The Bruces, Simon Joyner, Mal Madrigal tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 12:20 pm May 30, 2007

I’ve heard rumor of The Bruces’ Alex McManus working on some new material. I’m not sure where it will be released, though. His former label, Misra, has him listed as an “Alumni” and not a member of the current roster. Misra released 2004’s The Shining Path and 2002’s The War of the Bruces. Sometime last year, Misra and Absolutely Kosher kinda/sorta merged, or as they put it “announced a strategic partnership under which the management of both record labels will come together under one roof.” Was The Bruces a casualty of that merger? I’m not sure, but I’m guessing Alex is now looking for a label. Team Love, anyone? I’m assuming by the show listing on The Waiting Room page that Simon Joyner will be performing solo tonight, without his backing band, The Fallen Men. According to the Mal Madrigal site, Steve Bartolomei and Co. have “sequenced two full length records. Disc one is moody and dark. Disc 2 leans more toward classic songwriter music. We want to master and release vinyl. We could use some help, but we’ll do it ourselves if we have to.” Methinks you’ll hear some of the material from those recordings performed live tonight, when all three singer/songwriters play at The Waiting Room. 9 p.m., $7.
