� Adam just finished recording the new J Church record, and Lance is currently doing the artwork. The album will be released as a double LP, and the label will be Honest Don's.
� However, due to his busy schedule, Adam hasn't had time to master the Jawbreaker double disc b-sides and rarities album. So we'll consider the "early 2000" release date to be "first quarter of 2000," at this point.
� Another item of news I've been getting mail about regards the Dear You LP. Adam plans on rereleasing this at some point, but the deal with changeovers and buying out tends to go very slowly. If you fans out there need a copy immediately, I can only say check your used cd stores, or bid on EBay, but please don't e-mail about it since I have no other sources.
� One final bit of news: Shredder is rereleasing the Unfun CD in a digipak casing any day now. The rerelease will feature artwork closer to the original vinyl LP, not the ugly neon "day-glo" colors featured on the back of the current disc. Additionally, the album will have the color template from the Whack and Blite EP.

� CDNow lists a release date of November 2, 1999 for the Live 4/30/96 CD.

� This info has been on the band history page for some time, but in case some of you weren't aware, Chris Bauermeister is now playing bass for the band Horace Pinker. They have an album coming out soon (although Chris isn't on it). He'll be playing with them on their upcoming tour.

� More info on the live cd is available - the cd will be on Blackball, but distributed through Revolver. It will be distributed in a digipak casing. The extra track will be the song Shirt, but from a show about a week earlier in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This version was picked because it was the best sounding version that could be found (even after sifting through bootlegs and such). Finally - to put some speculation to rest - the show on the live LP is in fact the complete show. The set had to be short due to the number of bands that played.

� The Allied drawing has been completed, and winners should have received postcards through the mail by now. In a couple of months, the album will be released on CD on Blackball, with an extra track.

� Adam comes through again, this time in an interview. Go back to the main page to check it out. According to him, the non-LP tracks compilation may be out as soon as the end of this year. He also revealed some key information, such as outtakes from Bivouac, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, and Dear You, more info on Rise, info on lyrics not written by Blake - but by him and Chris, and so on. Do yourself a favor and read it.
� Adam also wanted me to let you guys know that any alleged rare/unreleased cd compilations appearing on EBay are not the real deal. These "glorified mixtapes" and cd-r's are going upwards of $50, and Adam isn't very happy about it. Do yourself a favor and wait until the real thing.

� This info comes from Adam Pfahler again (Thanks!). He shed some light on some elusive song titles. He doesn't know what Angry Song might be, but it could have been a working title for a song that didn't have all of its lyrics yet. First Step is apparently an outtake from the 24 Hour Revenge Therapy sessions - there were also other outtakes. These will be released on the forthcoming b-sides/splits/comps/unreleased compilation. World of Shit was an old song by Chris, who did the vocals on about half a dozen songs in the band's early career. This song appeared on an "early incarnation of demo #1." Finally, Adam has no idea what Interpreted is; it is probably a mistake made by a fan, who saw Imaginary or Incomplete on a setlist.
21 Feb. 1999
� This news comes directly from Adam Pfahler (thanks Adam!):
The live LP that will be released this summer on Allied Records will be limited to 100 copies. The two unreleased songs that will make an appearance are Gemini and Esme Needs Her Story. But don't worry...a cd release, plus some extras will appear soon after.
� Adam also says he has just finished sorting through all the tapes for a b-sides/ comps/splits/unreleased songs compilation. But it will be a huge project as far as mastering, art, photos, liner notes, and dates, so he does not know when this release will see the light of day. The important thing is that this WILL happen someday.
� Finally, many fans have wondered about this for awhile. The title "Mean Guy" referenced in Pack It Up from the Bivouac LP was in fact an early title for the song that came to be known as Better Half.
