Nerdcore Rising, the first and therefore awesomest-to-date Official MC Frontalot Album was mastered last night and sounds kind of dope. It will be back from the pressing plant and ready to release at PAX on August 27th. Front will probably pass around the hit single "Charity Case" a little earlier than that. Mail listees are the best apprised.
Nerdcore awareness blossoms at an alarming pace:
Front is expected to feature prominently in a piece on Nerdcore Hip-Hop appearing in the October issue of XXL. Their angle may be how wack he is. If so, Front can't really argue. Due to a wormhole in space, the October issue hits stands in early September, so take that opportunity to thumb through it carefully or bring it home to enjoy later.
Upcoming appearances! You know about the Penny Arcade Expo, don't you? You should. It's on. Front plays Saturday night, prior to MC Chris. And! Front will do some kind of a rapping set at center camp at Burning Man this year. At some point in the week. Probably. Schedules get nebulous up there.
And back to the album... big-sized thanks go out to the people who made it happen: keyboardist Gm7 (née Charisma+1), bassist Black Lotus, drummer The Categorical Imperative, beatsmith Baddd Spellah, bent circuit expert Doc Popular, stoned-ass bald dude DJ Earflaps, cellist JBB, master of mastering Alex Thériot, guest rappers MC Hawking and Jesse Dangerously, album artists Tony Moore and Campbell Whyte, and our gracious host at the dinner party of life, the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Okay! Last night's Crash Mansion show went quite well, despite Front's occasional inability to say lots of words quickly in the proper order. To those who point out (rightly) that this is all we ask of him, Front promises this: the Pr0n S0ng will be totally and completely memorized by the dawn of PAX.
Jeff Rowland (Front's only Australian Aboriginal friend) made it down from the wilds of MA to enjoy the show (or else to hang out with his fellow comicists). He lent Front's poorly org'd shirt concession the air of Dumbrella professionalism.
The new album! Front toils many hours each day in front of the mix-o-tron, turning dreams into uncompressed stereo data. It will be ready for Seattle. And it will be on sale in the store. And it will be rad.
You think you are a huge genius? Get past level six then.
It's the end of the world as we know it! Front plays one last gig in NYC before moving to Boston. Do not miss it.
There's a flyer here: (linky) which you should send to your friends. Also mention that Nerdcore Hip-hop is not going to reign supreme unless Frontalot can prove to club promoters that a crowd gathers to see him on a Saturday Night.
The Gallery of Cute Chicks Wearing My Shirt has a few new pics. And all of them are girls, if you can believe it.
Can't get to NY? How about Seattle? No? What, are you trapped under a heavy object? Well, here's a track from last month's gig at The Bitter End. The rest of the show's in the VSP section.
Important News At The Bottom! MC Frontalot's first official actual real compact disc is coming out August 27th. It will be inexpensive, shiny, and perfect for home use or listening on the go. The title is "Nerdcore Rising," it will have 16 tracks (new material and newly recorded favorites with plenty of beatwork from Baddd Spellah), and you had better start wondering about it right now.
