Louisville Babylon returns October 12th!

Round about 7 years ago this awesome, awesome cat named John King had a vision to start a unique compilation CD to showcase the bands of Louisville, as well as his own band Team Totoro. He called it "Louisville is for Lovers" and it is now working on it's 8th (due out Valentine's Day, 2008).

As if that wasn't enough, John has organized the reissue of the original Misfits cover album from 1994, "Louisville Babylon" and in just 9 more days, its spawn, "Louisville Babylon 2." The cds will be hand packaged just like all Louisville is for Lovers releases and be of a limited run of 666 pieces each. (can I buy number 666 John, please!!) The city thanks you John!

You can read more about the releases here and buy them locally at ear x-tacy or here.
The CDs are $10 a piece or both in a extra special box for $16 and come with a fancy poster.
