March 1, 2017: Dear Cubby friends, fans and followers, happy new year! OK, well, it's not so new anymore, but I've been running late getting out this new year news update.

Let me tell you a few things happening here at Cubby Control Records...

* #Cubby20 *
It was 20 years ago this year The Cubby Creatures began their career, releasing the first Missalettes and playing their first show at Artists' Television Access in the Mission District of San Francisco. In honor of the 20-year anniversary, I'll be digging through the Cubby Control Records archives and unveiling some long forgotten, and in some cases, never released gems. To start off, have a listen to The Cubby Creatures perform on KALX in August, 1999...

* Sounds of CCR *
Correspondingly, the current Sound of CCR is "Last Chance" by The Cubby Creatures, originally released in October, 2006 on the Embryo 4: Homemade Music by Bay Area Musicians compilation and available now for streaming for the first time in honor of the 20-year anniversary of The Cubby...

* JCYC *
I know I've been promising this for a few years now, but I really mean it this time -- Jesus Christ, You're Crazy, the last-recorded but never-released album by The Cubby Creatures, will be released this year. Jesus Christ, You're Crazy was described by The Cubby Creatures as "a rock opera/song cycle/post-ironic parable" that tells the story of Jojo who after enduring "a childhood strewn with insults, comes to a startling conclusion." The CD and packaging will feature the Cubby Creatures' songs along with narration by K.M. Soehnlein, as well as incidental music and artwork created by a number of Bay Area musicians and artists.

* (The Planet of) Progkp and the Hobbitozz zine *
REPTIEL is back in the studio this month to continue work on (The Planet of) Progkp, their followup to Hobbitozz ... A Land That Never Was. And speaking of Hobbitozz, there was finally a second printing of the Hobbitozz zine, which is now available for purchase through the Hobbitozz Website.
