OK, so on my Turkeyday Trip home to Seattle I managed to buy a bunch of records including Soul Pilgrim. In addition I was blessed with the opportunity to see them at the Weathered Wall and found out that Ted has was going to probably be on line some time soon (Hell, it took me long enough to update this he probably is already). So maybe I'll get more info from the folks who know.
Like most of the music press- I was caught with my virtual pants down. Our Team Pilgrim was at South by Southwest shakin' their thang with The Minstrels (Vancouver BC), Huevos Rancheros (Calgary AB), The Mermen (San Francisco CA), and Teisco Del Rey (Austin TX). This took place at Scholz Garden on March 14th. Sorry about that, I slept when the sleeper should have woke up. It was reported that they rocked with all their might and fun was had by all. Some friends returning from New Orleans stopped in on the festivities on the recollection that I had some of their records. They say it was just what the doctor ordered before returning to the dirtiest town you'll ever love: Albuquerque.
A phone call last night revealed several new developments. Satan's Pilgrims will release a 10" on the Dutch label Vulcan (if I can read my chicken scratch here) and a single on K Records. These should be hitting the scene in a couple of months. Also a tour is in the works for June. Ted is going to mail some stuff so stay bookmarked for more specific information latter!
Hey look, an on line interview: here!
As per the wired eMpTy records guy:

Out this July is a >Satan's Pilgrims split 7" with Del Laguna (Gas Huffers) both doing >Wailer's covers. Later -BlakeSounds great. Maybe I can cop some more graphics and jazz up this place. A note from the web-ed: this will rock as Del Laguna is also a force to be reckoned with.

Saw the show last night. Very nice indeed. Though I wish Albuquerque would cease starting their shows so damn late. Had a nice conversation with ted and john. Apparently Phonenix is a big show for them, but they've never been to the east coast so we'll see how that shapes up for them. Go and check 'em out. Fun for the whole family, even if they do get flack for the name...
These four monster cuts
they etched into stone
Inspired by fear
and the fright of their home
So turn up the volume
and worship the shock
and raise your glass to
THE HAUNTED HOUSE OF ROCK!
From the self same 7"
Note: Pilgrims are wired!
