A couple of years after moving to Seattle I joined a band called Rorschach Test. They were loud, fast and fun.

When The Bolshoi visited Brasil and Argentina in 1987 various members of the band, management and crew took turns shooting some home videos of the trip.
To coincide with the release of the Bolshoi box set that includes almost everything the band ever recorded, let us add some raw un-edited videos to the mix.

The Arkive (Beggars Banquet Records) released the 5-CD box set of The Bolshoi recordings in November that included an album we recorded in 1988 that was never released called Country Life.
I'm very happy they finally released this music and would like to thank Steve Webbon and Martin Mills at Beggars Group, Wyatt at Cauldron and Trevor Tanner for making this happen.
Ben Graham reviewed the box set for The Quietus, one of my favourite sources of all that is cool.
News of the release of the 5 CD box set of The Bolshoi recordings gives me a great excuse to finally get some assets I've been holding onto out into the world for people to see and hear.
They say timing is everything and the timing of the box set couldn't be better.
It includes an album we recorded in 1998 that was never released, the same year I started recording the album of four track tapes I'm releasing in December.
I'll be back with some Starship Oak news when I've got the Bolshoi assets out there.
I've been working on a dedicated website for the Starship Oak album, seeing as there's quite a bit of background to it. It's up and running with a couple of pages of info and a link to a video I made around the time I was recording the last of the tapes.
As soon as the album is released I'll add links to places you can get it, and also some information about a limited release version I'm working on.
