It’s true. February 6, 2005 marked the fourth anniversary of the launch of Glorious Noise. That’s pretty old for a website, so be kind to us, and help us across the street if you see us at an intersection.
It’s been an exciting year. Our greatest accomplishment was the launch of Glorious Noise Records, a dream that we’ve been thinking about for years. Even though the band did all the work, we’re still really proud of our debut release, Taro Sound by Quasar Wut-Wut, and we’re happy to see it’s been getting great reviews. Stay tuned for the release of At the End of the American Century by Riviera, which is due on April 5. Mp3s are available, of course.
There’s also been a bit of controversy in GLONO-land this past year with the incorporation of real ads. We get annoyed by them too, sometimes, but we’ve got bills to pay and records to release. If you’re ever offended by anything, we want to hear about it. So let us know.
The other comically controversial issue has been our ongoing coverage of “The O.C.” Each week, we get another round of people telling us they’re never coming back because of those articles. We’re sorry to see you go but damn, motherfuckers: lighten up. It’s just a fun TV show. With a surprisingly good soundtrack, too.
Well anyway, thanks everybody for sticking with us over the years. We really appreciate your support. It’s been a fun four years and we’re hoping to have many more birthdays. We’re not really having a regular birthday party this year becuase we’ve got to save our energy for Riviera’s cd release show on April 2 at Schubas. If you want to wish us a happy birthday sooner than that, you’ll find most of us at Subterranean this Saturday (February 12) for the Quasar Wut-Wut show.
See you soon!
