Goliath Album Cover Art Revealed

August 8th, 2014: Steve has posted another Kickstarter progress update, in which he reveals the name of the previously unnamed song as well as the album cover art. In addition, this detail regarding its forthcoming release is also provided:

[A] date has been set for mastering within the coming weeks, and band sign-off on the final mixes is achingly close.

YouTubin' The San Antonio Show

June 7th, 2014: Stephanie Edmonson has uploaded four videos to YouTube (1, 2, 3, 4) that appear to be virtually the entire May 18th San Antonio, TX show, minus the encore.

In addition, Steve gave an eight minute talk about his family's experiences with Compassion International and adopting his daughter that I'm sure he would love for you to listen to even if you didn't buy a ticket to the show.

Squinterland Resurrected From The Web Boneyard

June 2nd, 2014: Squinterland.com, the first web site for Steve's record label Squint Entertainment from May 1998, has turned up in the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, and is now archived here for all posterity. It is mostly complete, but some image rollover effects have been lost.

In a time when most people still had modems, this art-heavy page took a full three minutes to completely load. Sadly, the site did not presage a renaissance in horizontal scrolling as was hoped.

New "Most Bizarre Thing To Appear On YouTube" Award Winner

May 31st, 2014: From May 1985 comes the Steve Taylor lip-sync contest at Judson College in Elgin, IL, with finals at the Odeum in Chicago before the Sheila Walsh/Steve Taylor Transatlantic Tour concert. Congratulations to the winners Lisa and Paul, who are hopefully still getting mileage out of those VCRs.

YouTubin' The Tulsa, OK Show, And New Interview Transcripts

May 27th, 2014: A handful of videos have turned up from the Tulsa show. Ryan Creek shared The Lament, On The Fritz, and Cash Cow and Colour Code. Doc Smith shared his video of the band covering the Tulsa-born tunes MMMBop and Tulsa Time. Don Stephens also shot MMMBop and Tulsa Time, and also posted a photo gallery to his Facebook.

A few older tour updates that slipped through the cracks: An article about the Nashville secret show appeared on 33andathird.net. YouTube user mcmackme shared a short video of I Want To Be A Clone shot in Akron, OH. Bill Jacomet uploaded a Flickr photo gallery of the Dallas, TX show.

Finally, there are two new interview transcripts with audio available. The first is an interview on WJTL FM 90.3 in Lancaster, PA from April 24th, just before the start of the tour, in which Steve indicates that a music video has already been shot for a single from the forthcoming new album.

The second is a rarity: an interview solely about the Chagall Guevara years with Mike Rimmer on a radio show out of England called UCB Music Academy. In this interview Steve discusses Dave Perkins' dream that spawned the band's name, coming up in Nashville, and getting signed to MCA, among other topics.

YouTubin' The Dallas, TX Show

May 19th, 2014: Dallas must have been a happenin' stop, because plenty of videos have turned up from the night. First, Michael Edmonds uploaded Single Ladies and Cash Cow. Next, Robert Miguel uploaded Goliath, On The Fritz, and Single Ladies and Cash Cow.

YouTube user Whovianize, who wants you to know that she was tipsy from two vodka cranberries, shared Rubberneck, The Lament, Easy Listening, In Layers, On The Fritz, and Single Ladies. Rick Starr provided I Want To Be A Clone, Am I In Sync?, and Meltdown.

Finally, YouTube user Elmexix uploaded nice high-definition videos of I Want To Be A Clone and The Lament, Moonshot and The Moshing Floor, On The Fritz, The Finish Line, and Single Ladies, Cash Cow, and Colour Code.

And just for fun, here are all four of the above videos of Single Ladies synchronized and playing simultaneously.
