Russell: Spiritual Advisor & Life Coach/Local love for Foreign-Local love


Bill Rowe here.

I’m taking time out of my increasingly busy business life – managing these young ruffians here at Blacktooth Records is exhausting – to let you all know about my new Spiritual Advisor & Life Coach, Russell. Things have gotten so busy and convoluted with this business venture, I had to start making the tough decisions. Decisions such as, ‘do I eat local and slow even though I don’t have time to?’ and, ‘should I get a global phone number?’ Those all were relatively easy, but one that took the most deliberation was whether I was going to tend to my business life or my spiritual life. We all know it’s impossible to do both, and we also know which one I would pick given the inevitable crossroads (business, duh). So I’m pleased to announce the latest addition to Blacktooth Records via my own forced life, Russell, Spiritual Advisor & Life Coach extraordinaire.

I met him at Percy Priest lake and I saw him just walk off the island while we were on Andrija’s boat. He said he had just gotten back from Manhattan and said he found me. Welcome him as you would a new release from us here. They’re the same thing. Trust me.

Also, the local-well-to-do-enough-Alt paper here in Nashville, hereafter known as “The Scene”, was very sweet to profile some lovely Blacktooth bands (and non-Blacktooth bands) who were playing at the Basement for our friends that run the Memetic Society, the label in Chattanooga that put outta ton of 45′s for bands in Tennessee they thought were cool (we told you about it here: <click!>). Some great quotes include, “dweeby,” “California-sun” and “danceabilty.” Good job Majestico, Faux Ferocious and Fly Golden Eagle! You guys are great.

Hello tin ears and wooden tongues (or any other charmingly gnomic conversation starters we could have started the charming conversation with).

Been a spit. For that, you won’t receive much. Only the promise of our time here at Blacktooth being spent well and with due diligence. ¬†Everyone has been stirring good pots, the soups of which you shall all taste soon enough. I can tell you, however, that as of APRIL 11th, we here at Blacktooth Records will have purchased 14 pay-phone numbers in the greater Nashville area! We are honored to be included in this elite league of people, and we cherish each cenotaph as one would all great objects of antiquity. Other quarter-a-call owners in the greater Nashville area include Shoney’s, HCA, and the Clinton-Gore ’92 campaign! You will soon be able to order your favorite Blacktooth Records releases in complete anonymity, which is somewhat of a rare commodity these days. Be 0n the look out.

We appreciate the help and encouragement we’ve received thus far, and are haggardly going¬†forth, leaving our caves and heading toward the light (or at least the fire). Fly Golden Eagle and Majestico are playing Friday (4/6) at the Basement for a Memetic Society release party, alongside Faux Ferocious. They were kind enough to release 45′s for us all here. Come have a good time!


Perch your hawks on the wrist of Caeser, be great, and carve deep heel-marks, to abuse the poet Robinson Jeffers’ lines.





Sup? Blacktooth’s rival, Memetic Society, has officially tried to one up us by releasing 11 or so 45s of bands that we find dope and/or have put out records for ourself. So now, it’s on. However, these records are fantastic, beautiful, and well-done, so our envy level is low.

The 45s are a part of a project highlighting bands across Tennessee . You got Knoxville, you got Memphis, you got Chattanooga, and of course you got Nashville. Clockwise above are the records for Square People, Faux Ferocious, Majestico, and Fly Golden Eagle. You can check the Memetic website for a full list of the bands involved in the project.

The 45s will be for sale at shows and from the web site (ours as well! just soon, not now) and we hope you dig them because we think they are digable.


Come see Ranch Ghost and Fly Golden Eagle at the End TONIGHT (12/2) with Last Year’s Men and score some o’ dem records, main.

And here’s the A-side for !FGE’s No Shot 45, Moira.

!FGE: Swagger/Canadian Funraiser

Fly Golden Eagle and Blacktooth Records are proud to present: Swagger. After a year of work, Fly Golden Eagle is back. This time – and from here on out – they are feeling good. On September 9th they will play their new record live, sincerely titled Swagger, in addition to songs you know, songs that don’t have a home yet, and ones that are homeless and always will be. The new record will be available for free, per usual, and will come out on tape in the coming months via Blacktooth Records (BT005), with the 7″ No Shot, containing “Moira” b/w “Windjammers”, being released by The Memetic Society as part of their Tennesthesia project.

The record Swagger is sexy. It grooves and undulates, titillating your senses. It pops a bit harder but not like you would expect. You’ve got to experience it, which is the only way to do anything. That’s why we’re going to share it with friends, family, and strangers at our house. Join us, the address is below.

We will also be passing the hat. Fly Golden Eagle recently achieved a minor-miracle and got accepted for a residency at the Banff Cntre for the Creative Arts for 3 weeks in Banff, Canada. We’ll be leaving right after the record release, and will be working with Howard Bilerman (drummed on Arcade Fire’s Funeral, runs Hotel2Tango, mega-Producer), Tony Berg, Shawn Everett, and Graham Lessard, all worth looking into and respectable. We can do whatever we want, have the opportunity to record, and purge ourselves in the wilderness. We need your help to get up there and are foregoing Kick Starting anything and just working with face-to-face gifting. (If you can’t make the show or are out of town and still want to donate, you can do so at our PayPal here:


We’re proud of what we do and proud and honored to be friends with everyone. We can’t do anything apart from that. If everyone gives a little, we can make it.

So, in short:
