Getting Better

He appears to be ok, or at least he is facebooking again, if that is anything to go by.

Mark Eitzel Has Heart Attack

Per Chris Metzler via Facebook:
"Mark had a heart attack the night before last. It was pretty bad but he is doing ok at the hospital now and getting a lot of needed rest. He seems to be in good spirits."

I think I speak for us all when I say our thought are with him.

If you are in San Fran on the 30th April then you could pop along to the OmniCircus and catch Danny Pearson and the Toiling Midgets on the same bill.  Who knows, they may play some new material.

Mark At SXSW

If you are going to SXSW then you will have seven chances to see Mark Eitzel doing his stuff.

It seems that Mark Eitzel is going to be reading from the autobiography of Justin Bieber (or possibly Marilyn Manson) as part of Noise Pop 2011.

Mark Eitzel At SXSW

If you are lucky enough to be going to SXSW this year then you might catch Mark and Marc doing their "Songs of the American Music Club" set again.  It is billed as the AMC but it isn't.  Still, should be worth catching though as he might try out some of his new tunes.

New Solo Album!

There is a new post on Marks blog that says that he has a new solo acoustic album in the works.
I am making a record called 'The Bill Is Due'. It is taking a while because I keeping writing new songs for it - and throwing old songs away. So far there are 13. I think it is great. I am proud. My plan is to make an acoustic album. Just guitar and vocal. Maybe one other instrument or a backing vocal. I know the world needs another 'acoustic' record like it needs a hole in the head - but I listen to a lot of random stuff and most of it is noise. Remember the signal to noise ratio? I want to be all signal. I am working with the engineer who shares the space where I work. His name is Ron Macleod and he is very decent and kind. He leaves me alone mostly - he sets up fancy mics and and lets me go.
I don't have a record label for this yet though I have a couple of ideas. I know that what people want is an AMC record - and so do I - but honestly I have to make some money now and this is the only way I know.

Are we looking forward to it?
