PUPPET SHOW IS SIGNED TO PROGROCK RECORDS AND RELEASES THE ALBUM “THE TALE OF WOE”
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 8 December 2006 – Intricate arrangements, incredible drumming, innovative bass/ guitar/ keyboard interplay, and imaginative vocals all begin to describe Puppet Show – a group of musicians based in the heart of Northern California’s “Silicon Valley.” Formed in 1994, the group plays music that combines fluent melodic work with odd meters and strong vocals. As a bonus, their songs also come complete with multiple sections, instrumental breaks, a solo or two, quiet and loud parts, and occasional snoring. The band garnered critical acclaim for their Bay Area live performances in the 1990s including standout gigs at East Bay Prog Day and headlining the Exposé Concert Series premier event. Response to the release of Puppet Show’s debut album “Traumatized” in 1998 was so strong that the band also got the opportunity to play at the international festivals Baja Prog and ProgFest in the following years.

After a great start, the future of the band began to look uncertain in 2000 when it appeared as if various otherwise-positive life events might deal a fatal blow to Puppet Show. “Real” jobs, family matters, and a few drummer changes slowed down the pace of the band’s efforts to complete their follow-up album. Despite the setbacks, and through long periods of little progress, the band persevered and worked through the many obstacles encountered during the writing and recording for the group’s long-awaited and aptly-titled second release – “The Tale Of Woe.”

Mike Grimes of Puppet Show said, "We're excited to be teaming up with ProgRock Records to release our second album - 'The Tale Of Woe.' We like what the label is doing and feel that Puppet Show's music is a good stylistic fit, so when given the opportunity it was easy for the band to decide to sign with ProgRock."

“For me Puppet Show was one of the early bands that showed me American prog was still alive and well, along with their label mates at Kinesis, they were all breaking new ground, so it was both a treat and a surprise to suddenly hear from the band that a new album was done and it was my pleasure to be able to work with them on their comeback and I’m especially pleased that they will be performing at the Rites of Spring Festival in April 2007.”, Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records said.

”The Tale of Woe” is the second album by Puppet Show and the first on ProgRock Records. The CD can be found at here. Inspired by bands like Genesis and UK, they have a sound all their own, but will also appeal to fans of those bands. The album is available for immediate order and will ship in early January 2007. The CD is discounted $2 during the pre-order period.
 
 
Porcupine Tree to appear On Yoko Ono album

CD: US TWISTED Records – TWD-50026
The EP is the fifth release in the ONO remix series and contains a
Porcupine Tree remix of Yoko Ono's "Death of Samantha" from her John
Lennon produced 1973 album "Approximately Infinite Universe". The
track is an atmospheric reworking which combines Yoko's original vocal
with newly recorded acoustic guitar, piano, mellotron and slide guitar.
Additional production and remix created by SW at No Man's Land

FROM PITCHFORK MEDIA:

Taking aim at stereotypes while simultaneously playing straight to them, Yoko Ono has titled her forthcoming album Yes, I'm a Witch. (It's also the name of one of her songs.) And the legendary artist/musician has conjured quite a list of guests to appear on the record. In fact, the record consists of almost nothing but guests.

The idea behind Witch goes like this: Ono chose the artists with whom she wanted to work, gave them access to her back catalog, asked them to chose a song to rework, and then "provided [them] with the vocals and whatever other instrumental elements attracted them from that cut. Almost all the artists chose just the vocals," according to a press release. The result: a remixes/duets/covers record consisting of "entirely new musical tracks."

Tracklist:

01 Hank Shocklee: "Witch Shocktronica Intro"
02 Peaches: "Kiss Kiss Kiss"
03 sh*take Monkey: "O'Oh"
04 Blow Up: "Everyman...Everywoman"
05 Le Tigre: "Sisters O Sisters"
06 Porcupine Tree: "Death of Samantha"
07 DJ Spooky: "Rising"
08 Apples in Stereo: "No One Can See Me Like You Do"
09 The Brother Brothers: "Yes I'm a Witch"
10 Cat Power: "Revelations"
11 Polyphonic Spree: "You and I"
12 Jason Pierce (Spiritualized): "Walking on Thin Ice"
13 Antony and Hahn Rowe: "Toy Boat"
14 The Flaming Lips: "Cambridge 1969/2007"
15 The Sleepy Jackson: "I'm Moving On"
16 Hank Shocklee: "Witch Shocktronica Outro"
17 Craig Armstrong: "Shiranakatta (I Didn't Know)"
