"Shorty, What's Happening?" will soon be available for download. It's been a year in the making, and it's not quite worth the wait. Not quite sure if it will be on itunes or for free on some random websites. The rap cover album consists of 6 songs that dominated the airwaves in the past year or so. A complete list of songs will be up soon. HERE WE GO! Please visit www.myspace.com/danielzott to hear the song "Soulja Boy" from the album.
The Great Fiction tracked half of their new LP over the first weekend in April, the rest will be completed in similar fashion by the end of the year. They're trying a slightly different approach - everyone playing together (fancy that!) with minimal overdubs... same fiction, less friction. It seems to be working out.
Daniel Zott will be featured on the Detroit Today Show on WDET 101.9 on Nov. 1oth, 2008, the day before his double album is released. If you live in Detroit, please tune in and support your local NPR station. The show starts at 10am. Daniel will play around 11am. All the songs played will be off his upcoming release.
THE GREAT FICTION are playing along with The Stationary Set and Manna and Quail. They will be opening the show, so be sure to get there right at doors. Doors open at 8pm. Cost is $10. They will be playing most of the new tracks from the "Hiding Under Covers" EP, and will also perform some of their newest songs to be released on the next LP in early 2009.
