Thanks to you all for making the first week of Blogcritics.com a rousing success. We had excellent traffic, links from around the world and down your street, and very good response from the record labels as well. We should start to have new CDs for you to review shortly. I am still working out the logistics of how they will be distributed – we may do it on a first-request first-serve basis as the labels aren’t going to send us 140 copies of each release, certainly not to begin with. Will advise soon.
THIS WEEK – We are going to do an interview with a prominent person every week. Please send me your suggestions. This week we are interviewing legendary rock critic and MJI editorial director Ira Robbins on Thursday, August 22. His classic Trouser Press books are now up online with all content available for free. Please post in the comments or email your questions for Ira to me by Wednesday. For more information on Ira and Trouser Press, please see this post:
