Merry Xmas

...phew. Christmas is nearly here, the school term is over...and I'm feeling absolutely exhusted and still quite some way off goodwill to all men, especially if they have anything to do with the RIAA or the DMCA.

But, it has been a good year for me overall, sustained by getting a better job, the continued love and support of Mrs. 17 Seconds and family, friends and readers. 17 Seconds Records Ltd. is go, make friends at our myspace page if you haven't already.

17SEC1 is already available as a download, Aberfeldy's first single for two years 'Claire.' The 7" is now supposed to be with us in January, not that I'm getting annoyed about this or anything...It was a proud moment hearing Riley Briggs talking about 17 Seconds Records from the stage at their two gigs on Monday and Tuesday; if you pop along to their myspace, where you can make friends if you haven;t already and hear their version of a Christmas classic. They were supported on Tuesday night in Edinburgh by the rather fabulous Gillyflowers who have already been recording with Riley Briggs from Aberfeldy producing and amazing it is too. Make friends with them, before some hip record company snaps them up.

17SEC2 is Ex Lion Tamer's fantastic 'Life Support Machine.' Thank you to the 100+ who have downloaded this; if you haven't please do - it's a free Christmas track.

Ex Lion Tamer -'Life Support Machine.' mp3

If of course, Christmas is getting too much for you, check out this track from Earth:

Earth -'Omens And Portents I: The Driver.' mp3

It's taken from this page whixh has lots of wonderful and not a little terrifying stuff from the likes of Om, Sunn o)), Burning Witch...and Boris collaborating with Merzbow. Two Japanese gods of noise collaborating together. Oh yes...

Have a good one, I'll be back in the new year
