RE: IDAHO—PRESS UPDATE
Following is a complete update of all response from press on IDAHO.
Please refer to the tour update (sent under separate cover) for tour press information,
Please advise re: the Mazzy Star tour asap. These tour dates could really help me out with those outlets/freelancers who are “borderline” right now.
Please advise re: the status of the video.
Please send me any college radio chart info. (i.e. CMJ numbers?).
Chris Nixon would like to do phoner for an advance for the ROCKET—Please advise if the Seattle date is confirmed.
MUSIC SCOUPE has passed on coverage for now.
CONAN O’BRIEN SHOW feels it’s too early to book the band this season. I’m keeping them up to date on significant chart rises (keep me posted).
DETAILS have declined on coverage at this time.
I’m continuing to follow up with SASSY for a photo item. I’ll keep you posted.
I’m continuing to follow up with STROBE and BLUR in an attempt to set up both interviews. .
The NET feature will be in the next issue.
The RAYGUN feature will be out November 19th. This is the L.A. issue with L7 and Deborah Harry on the cover,
The ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY review ran (you have received via fax).
WESTWOOD ONE would like to hold off on the band playing live in the studio until the chart numbers increase (sorry...). - They will still service a portion of the interview to their affiliate subscribers and will hold a portion for additional pieces once the album begins charting.
