friend, former Jawbox/Burning Airlines member, J. Robbins' son Cal is suffering
from Type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy. This is a horrible genetic disease
that interferes with the brains ability to control the voluntary muscles.
It is often fatal.
J and his wife Janet are pursuing many options for treatment. Unfortunately these options are very expensive. If you would like to help out, Desoto Records has set up a donations page.
Arcwelder (well, mostly Scott) has contributed a song to the "For Callum" CD compilation. All proceeds from the CD go to help J and Janet with treatment options for Callum. There are a lot of cool people who have contributed time and effort to the project - check it out. Our song is called "The Hope" and is previously unreleased.
There is video of us from the T&G 25th Anniversary Show on the T&G site
The Touch and Go Records 25th Anniversary Show was absolutely phenominal! It was a great honor to be included in such an amazing lineup of bands. We took a few pictures too.
|Our record label|
|Great eclectic radio from New York City. Scott's favorite radio station. They introduced him to The Shaggs.|
|Scott says: If you are a Captain Beefheart fan like I am (and not many are) this is a great web site. Truckloads of info on the man who skewered the blues in a way no other artist has before or since.|
|Obscenely detailed web page from Mike Watt.|
|Friends of ours made good. They have done videos for a bunch of cool folks like Babes in Toyland, Afghan Whigs, Soul Asylum, and the Cranberries.|
designer Chank gives away a free font every week, and usually has some pretty
amusing stuff at his site. Besides, Arcwelder's own Scott "Woodrow" Macdonald
designed a font for Chank. It's called Irondale - and it free!
Here's what is looks like:
|Derek does phenomenal work - check it all out.|
|Andy Gill from Gang Of Four's website. One of our very favorite guitar players of all time.|
|Dan is a good friend - and one of Scott's former band mates (there have been many, BTW). He puts up a new piece of art every day.|
|In the past Scott sometimes had a radio show playing 70s punk, 80s post punk on Macalester College radio, 91.7 FM, WMCN|
|A great, but obscure, early 80's punk funk band|
|Seems like all (ex-)punks have gone into either web design or graphic design these days. Gerard has done both.|
|Back in the day, there were a bunch of 7th Street Entry shows at DCN, and one from The Empty Bottle in Chicago on Supersphere, but they all seem to have gone away now. If anyone has any info on these let us know.|
