February 14 is Blowfly's birthday. He turns 70 years old this year, but he still criss-crosses the world performing his awesome, filthy parodies. We wish him all the best, and we hope that you'll hop on over to Blowfly's MySpace page and leave him a birthday greeting comment. If you live in Miami, you can attend Blowfly's 70th Birthday show at PS14 on March 6.

Here's a segment on Blowfly that aired recently on the French TV show Tracks.

01/21/09: Happy Bloguration Day!

America inaugurated a new President yesterday, but today we inaugurate the Alternative Tentacles Blog. Our current website lacks the bells and whistles that people have come to expect from sites like RSSable news, comments, etc. While we get our shit together for a new website, we decided to start a blog to have a place where we can post about happenings, highlights from our mailorder, and whatever else we feel like. Everyone on staff at Alternative Tentacles will be posting, and we hope to have guest posts from AT band members too!

We already have a few posts up on the blog so please take a look and what you think!

And it gives us great pleasure to say: Please go to http://alternativetentacleshq.blogspot.com/ and RSS the fuck out of it.

We will continue to post news here on www.alternativetentacles.com, as well as on our Facebook and MySpace pages, but the blog will have more non-newsy posts. Just sayin'.


01/16/09: Send a note to George W. Bush

It has come to our attention that Karl Rove is collecting farewell notes to George W. Bush via e-mail, meaning Rove's lackey will screen and print out the e-mails and they will be handed to G. W. Bush who may or may not read them. (He may read your note if it has something to do with pet goats...)

We thought we'd pass on the e-mail address in case you want to send something in:

They are accepting e-mails until January 19, 6pm East Coast time.

Just make sure you keep it civil and respectful so you don't get a visit from the Secret Service.

01/14/09: Doc Corbin Dart feature in Vice Magazine

There is a feature on Doc Corbin Dart (of the Crucifucks) in Vice magazine. The entire article is posted online. It is a great read and we highly recommend you check it out--especially if you are new to the bizarre, fantastic world of Doc Dart, now known simply as 26.


01/12/09: Get your AMEBIX tickets now!!
