Big times for The Russian Futurists… We are thrilled to announce that our good pals at Memphis Industries (The Go! Team, Dungen) and V2 Records’ Cooperative Music division have signed The Russian Futurists in the UK/Europe/Africa! UC, Memphis and the band have worked hard and made one smoking hot album, all digitally re-mastered, called “Me, Myself & Rye…An Introduction To The Russian Futurists” that will have the hottest tracks from each of the first 3 Russian Futurists albums – The Method Of Modern Love, Let’s Get Ready To Crumble and Our Thickness.
“Me, Myself & Rye” will be available on LP and CD in UK, Europe, Israel, Turkey and Africa on June 12.
The first single “Paul Simon” will be in stores May 25…and obviously expect a lot of European touring from the band this summer…and of course expect to see the wonderous video for “Paul Simon” all over MTV over there! In the meantime our pop hero Matthew Hart is locked away working on music. He just finished a hot hot remix of Stars’ “The First Five Times” and a ridiculously fly remix of Cadence Weapon’s “Sharks”…and that’s that – word is he’s several songs into his fourth full-length album and doing some stuff with Sweden’s LO-FI-FNK. He will come out of hiding for one show next month though —

BREAKING KAYFABE IS THE #1 HIP HOP RECORD ON COLLEGE RADIO IN CANADA !
And Bounce-FM (Edmonton’s mainstream hip hop & R&B station) is playing “Oliver Square”!
You can also hear tracks from Breaking Kayfabe all over London’s X-FM on both John Kennedy and Jon Hillcock’s shows!
It is finally done. The Cansecos walked out of Abbey Road Studios on February 8th or so with a completely finished album. That album is called “Juices!” and we’ll be getting this psychedelic electro pop voyage of a god damn music masterpiece out to the world this spring/summer. If you check in on their Myspace site, The band have been posting tracks from the album. Certain members of the Cansecos are in Hawaii taking a minute to catch their breaths (no joke, the assholes…), but will be back soon and we’ll have all kinds of live and album information for you!
And as far as the rest of the UC fam goes… Food For Animals just played the Fat Cat Open Circuit in Belgium and are recording big jams, and Al-P from girlsareshort continues to be MSTRKRFT with Jesse from Death From Above.
