Ok, so I’m a little late with this, in that Miles signed with Majordomo in fall, 2009 and here we are closing out 2012. But I want to take this opportunity to SHOUT! out as it were to MK and wish him well.
Miles Kurosky founded the band Beulah which was part of the Elephant 6 collective, and played the Cubberley Sessions in 1998, supporting Archers of Loaf — with the memorable poster featuring Muhammed Ali. I recall trying to book them to play the Earthwise 5 year show at Cubberley, supporting Superchunk but they were not available so we had to settle for their management-mates Creeper Lagoon. I recall drinking with Miles and crew one night at the Bottom then helping them load their gear back into their warehouse space near the old Seals Stadium site.
Majordomo incidentally is the new music imprint of SHOUT FACTORY, founded by Richard Foos, who was one of the first people in the biz I met up with, although I have not seen him since 1995, when he was still with Rhino. I talk to Foos every once in a while; I recall him telling me that Airborne Toxic Event was one of his new music discoveries.
