The following outlets have expressed interest in IDAHO but have not confirmed interviews or reviews and are currently pending. If you have questions, please contact us.
PUNCTURE: have expressed continued interest in the band but did not attend the S.F. shows and would not confirm an interview or review. Fred Mills had promised to pitch a feature but has been out of touch for the last 2 weeks (he’s moving).
STROBE: Expressed initial interest. They assigned Michael Kamansky to do the interview and Michael proved impossible to reach. We’ve suggested that they find a different writer but as yet they haven’t reassigned the piece.
BIKINI: Expressed some interest. They have not decided what they’re going to do and have not responded to several invites to L.A. shows.
CREEM: the Rock-A-Rama is supposed to run in the issue out in January. This is per Chris Nadler and Greg Fasalino.
HYPNO: (a/k/a SIN): would not commit to a feature/spotlight but love the band. James said he’d review the album in the next issue and do “something more” in the next few months.
B-SIDE: Katherine Yeske interviewed the band 3 months ago. Carol Schutzbank has said she needs to speak with Sandra Garcia re: the feature. I’ve left 2 messages for Sandy (she’s out of town).
WAFFLE: Noel has expressed continual interest in an interview with the band but has flaked both times we’ve set one up.
BOSTON ROCK: the feature is supposed to run in the next issue.
HEY HULLABALOO: the feature is supposed to run in the next issue.
Again, it was a pleasure working with you and IDAHO. If you have any questions or if we can help you in any way, feel free to contact us.
