Love Is For Lovers

Don't know if it's because I'm too 'inside' "Love Is For Lovers," but I never really pegged it as a love song, per se; it always seemed sort of standoffish and judgmental, my usual M.O.

Today on Facebook, however, a couple of friends took the ball and ran with it*, and they posted The dB's' tune, dedicating it to love on a day dedicated to love.

It's one of my favorite songs, and it's always big fun to play. Happy Valentine's Day, friends and lovers.

First week of release reviewed

A good week, indeed. Over 50 copies of the record sold through Big Cartel, a few more sold independently. Over 1800 views of the video. Gigs booked in NY, TN and all around NC. Ranked #2 in Rock/Durham with ReverbNation. Lots of love for the songs, and I'm feeling the love.

I had not expected to enjoy the one-man operation as much as I have. Maybe I'm doing it right... Thank you all for your support! Onward!

Day Two, New Week, Another Dimension

The weekend in Atlanta was incomparable. Two nights at 529 with Magnapop and Elf Power. Those are two remarkable bands; their longevity and their unfailingly high musical quality are enviable. Friends, fine food, some commerce, but mostly music and more music. Thank you to my hosts, the Owings family, who graciously opened their home and lives to me for a couple of nights.

The single's out now; I got back from Old Durham Station where I put many of y'all's singles into the US Postal Service's hands around noon yesterday. More new ones are coming in, and I'll do my level best to get orders turned around and out in a timely fashion. 

Let's see...here's my updated list o' gigs, solo unless otherwise noted:

I've reactivated my ReverbNation page, although I'm still stumbling through construction there like a giant stumbling thing. Nevertheless, I was greeted with the news that I am ranked at #2 in the Durham Rock charts there. So go figure. You are welcome to join me there through this here and watch the transformation taking place if you have that kind of time on your hands. Show dates will be there, too.

Thanks for all the support with this little record, friends. 

(I just love that cartoon, that's the only reason it's there.)

I don't think so.


The single goes on sale at midnight. And it's on sale until I sell out or order more, whichever comes first. It's on sale here. If you need to hear/see it one more time before you commit to buying it, I can dig it. Here's the video link again. Thank you for considering a purchase.

Getting ready for the onslaught February 3

Hawthorne Curve Records headquarters is a-quiver in anticipation of the gargantuan demand for the new single by Peter Holsapple, to be released on selfsame label February 3. 

Here we see the HCR Shipping Department, working their fingers to the bone (in lieu of getting homework done, but whatever), creatively packaging containers full of "Don't Mention The War" vinyl products. 

We at HCR strive to keep up with demand, and we promise we'll get the records out in...record time. 

Sales go LIVE February 3 at my Big Cartel store and at Schoolkids Records locations in the Triangle area.

Reactivated "Band" Page on Facebook

In my attempt to get the plates spinning again, I have reactivated my Facebook 'Band' page that will have all my show dates on it.

Here's the link.
