"Blood donors are critical to providing the best care for the sickest patients. When you donate blood you're helping someone live another day.

Guy has a podcast about his experience as a RN during covid:
My old friend Mathew Hall and I have been working on a podcast series about the experiences of a Level One Trauma Hospital during the initial outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic, that being my place of employ Harboview Medical Center. I was reassigned to Covid duties from my regular job in 2020 and the journaling I did during these months forms the basis for the Podcast series. Each episode will feature a member of the hopstials staff with their own perspective on what happened. Episode one is Vanessa Markarewicz, our amazing Infection Prevention Operations Manager. I hope you can find some time to listen to her fascinating account. Please share this post or promote this podcast anywhere you see fit, as I believe the information is interesting and useful, and I hope that this sort of factual presentations of the the real expirences of Health Care workers during the pandemic can help people understand the importance of getting vaccinated and fighting this virus.

Guy Updates

Guy has a lot of side project activity, so let's just quote him in full:
Well the New year is well and truly underway, and with it come new music!

I'm happy to announce that after 10 years in the can the Bricklane album Sleepers, Ballast and the Permanent Way is now released. This was a band that was active in the second half of the oughts. Kelly Berry and I hatched the idea after many hours on the road with Mudhoney, and we were rounded out by the mighty talents of Matt Nims and Don Blair. There's bio info about the band on the Bandcamp page and the Facebook page.
https://bricklane.bandcamp.com/releases
https://www.facebook.com/Bricklane-100240785420182

Band Camp runs a great program to help their musicians called Bandcamp Fridays, find out more here https://daily.bandcamp.com/features/update-on-bandcamp-fridays

There are so many great bands and musicians out there on Bandcamp, please consider supporting independent music (and Bricklane) through this business!

But wait, more music news! Stay tuned to this space for an upcoming Beauty Hunters Youtube TV show, due out on Valentine's day 2021 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9hQeojP0km_54e-bRy97yQ

Our new album Animal Magmatism will be released mid-February on English psych label extraordinaire Weird Beard Records.
https://x.facebook.com/WeirdBeardRecs/

I'm also hoping to post some more Plant tracks to the Band camp page https://plant2.bandcamp.com/, so be prepared for an onslaught of promotions in the coming weeks. We May not have any live music these days (well Aussie and NZ friends might?), so please consider supporting your musical community, where ever that may be, through these online resources.

Wishing you all a safe and well new year and remember, Rock On anyway you know how!

Happy Birthday, Mudhoney!

33 years in!

Mudhoney had some plans for 2020, and then covid came. They got one show in, and cancelled tours of the Western U.S. and Canada, and Europe. Hopefully those can go on in 2021.

They did manage some releases, both for Mudhoney and for side projects. You can see those by perusing through the prior year's updates.

Today also marks the 23rd anniversary of this website. That's a long time! Thanks to everyone who wrote in to contribute information to this site over the past year (and the previous 21). It's always appreciated, and you can do it at ptn@ocf.berkeley.edu.
