If you watched the recent Rocket and a Bomb Live DVD to the end, you might have noticed a mysterious website advertised at the end: http://www.fearknott.com. When I first went to it, there was nothing there yet. But I remembered to take another look at it yesterday and found that it is up, and it is a new website for the upcoming Michael Knott documentary Fear Knott: The Musical Message of a Rock ‘n’ Roll Chameleon. No trailer yet, but there are some interesting tidbits to be found on the website. The most exciting part for Knott fans (well, after the documentary itself, of course) is that there will be a special soundtrack for this trailer. Maybe with some new / rare / unreleased songs? No details yet, but we can hope. Also, there is a gallery on the website with some interesting historical images, some that I haven’t seen before. Anyways, make sure to keep your eye on that website for more details as they are made available.

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.

As promised, the new Sincerely Paul / Slide website has been officially launched. The new site has two purposes: to catalog memories of Sincerely Paul, and to launch new music by Slide (featuring former members of Sincerely Paul). See http://www.sincerelypaulmusic.com or http://www.slidemusicgroup.com for more information. The Sincerely Paul re-issue is also still in the works.

WeLoveKnott is a “supplemental page” because… well… that’s how much stuff he has put out. Mike needs a whole fleet of MySpace pages. Great idea. Check out the page and enjoy the songs. I guess they also noticed this page, so I should work harder on getting it finished 🙂 http://www.myspace.com/weloveknott
Michael has a new online gallery for his artwork, new and old. Gerardartwork.com features galleries of paintings for sale and already sold. There is also places for people to submit images of artwork they have bought.
There are at least other Knott-related MySpace pages – Cush, Aunty Bettys, and an unofficial Mike Knott page (solo albums). Each one of these has songs to listen to. See the links page for the URLs: http://www.knottheads.com/links.php
There is a MySpace page that claims to be the official Knott MySpace page. Let’s hope this is true, and that this page doesn’t die the slow agonizing death of the official Michael Knott web site 🙂 http://www.myspace.com/michaelgerardknott
