New Windy Lyre Music on MySpace

Fans of Blonde Vinyl recording artist Windy Lyre need to check out her MySpace page for three new songs. Information on the page lists the dates of these as 2008, 2 being attributed to an album called “Overflow,” and another one attributed to an album called “Dance Over Me.” Her page also lists Michael Knott as “guitarist, etc.” Nothing seems to officially indicate an album release or Michael’s involvement, but there is at least new music and hint of some more to come. Stylistically, the songs seem to be similar to her work for Blonde Vinyl – but also don’t seem to be left-overs from 1991.

Mike Knott and Hidden From Blackout

I mentioned a while back that Mike’s partner in Struck Last May (Rick McDonough) has a side band called Hidden From Blackout. I thought some of the vocals in the HFB songs on MySpace sounded vaguely Knott-ish. When I asked about that, HFB responded that Mike is an influence and does sometimes provide back-up… but not on the posted songs. So, someday we might see some HFB stuff added to the Knott discography. But I still look forward to the HFB album, with or without Mike’s back-up.
