Well! So much good news! First of all, justinbianco.20m.com has done away with that nasty 20m business and can now be accessed through www.justinbianco.com. Go ahead: try it and prepare to be amazed!

More good news… Today is a very special day. Today brings the official birthday of the Blue Bottle Collective. “What’s that,” you ask? Well, it’s an online musician’s co-operative cross-advertising community. What that means is that everyone who is a part of it does neat stuff like put links to other collective members’ websites. Also, when another member releases a new album, all the other members help spread the word. Casually, of course, other members may be mentioned at shows, etc. www.bluebottlecollective.com. [EDIT: No longer, sorry!]

The collective now has four members, soon to be five. The newest addition is Amy René Anderson, who will be collaborating with me on my next album. She sings real pretty.

Yes indeed, I believe that’s all. Keep it real, yoozles.

Interview

News | October 8th, 2003

So I have an interview for an internship next week. I will *hopefully* be working on a CD of music and audio interviews with women in prison, ultimately sparking a debate on the treatment of imprisoned women. At the very least, I will have a chance to speak with and connect with other local musicians… wish me luck.

New Stuff

News | September 22nd, 2003

A new album is in the works, and (what I think is) the best song on the album is available for download or listen at www.soundclick.com/justinbianco [EDIT: No longer, sorry!] so go check it out, ya bum. It’s called “Looking Down,” and another, more funny song called “The Top Of The World” is available there, in addition to “My Beloved, The Cello,” all of which will appear on the new album.

Laurel Brauns also has a new album, and it’s awesome, so buy it. www.laurelbrauns.com

Cranes

News | September 7th, 2003

School has begun, and classes are interesting. San Francisco is being good to me, and friends new and old are wonderful of course. I’ve been back in the mood for writing again, so I’m back working on my novels. Musically, little is happening; I think I need a good drummer before I can do much more that doesn’t sound like the electronic crap I’ve been doing already. Perpetuate The Evil is being worked on more, but more slowly. After finding a strange fascination with cranes (the city kind, not the bird) and wasting a few days trying to make a decent model of one, I’ve given up. Back to the other stuff.

Yes, so now I blabber. No more.

Blasted technology!

Finally back up and running. My computer committed suicide just the other day, and after fighting and struggling, I had to face the facts and just reformat the hard drive, losing everything. That includes, by the way, “Contigo,” which was supposed to be released four days ago. As you can see, it won’t be. On the bright side, I did happen to burn a few songs from ‘Contigo’ onto disk a week or two ago, so I’ll rescue those and probably just end up putting them on soundclick.com. I hope everyone’s enjoying “Stung By Love.” I’ve been listening to it a lot, and it’s definitely growing on me more and more every day.
Next week I’m headed to California, so if you don’t hear from me for a while, that would be why. Wish me luck as I try to find a new place to live.
