Struck Last May’s album has been available for a while through MySpace digital download system, but SLM also recently announced that 16 Flowers now be purchased through iTunes or CD Baby. CD Baby offers both the CD and mp3s for purchase. Still nothing new on the strucklastmay.com site, though.

A MySpace bulletin announced that a second Struck Last May album is in the works, and should be out by summer 2008. Also, the official Michael Knott page has been officially repaired and subscribers to the Knott listserv were told that it will contain news and updates as they become available.

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.

[Still no new word on the Struck Last May project. But Michael’s partner in SLM, Rick McDonough, also has a project called Hidden From Blackout. Two of the HFB MySpace songs (“JU88” & “As Noon”) have a vocalist that sounds almost exactly like Mike Knott. I’ll have to find out for sure. But that just means that if you like Mike’s trippy, experimental stuff – you will probably like this band, too: http://www.myspace.com/hiddenfromblackout
