What would him not being a musician have to do with him having a label ? its hardly a requirement.... I think him being an actor and having a label is stranger... but either way..its a good angle even if Yep Roc will really be doing the work.... I'm just glad there's a new Apples in Stereo record coming out...its been too long !

Going to simianrecords.com redirects you to the band's bio on yeproc.com.

Here's a thought: Elijah Woods is, or at least was once, a Donnas fan. (When The Donnas played Coachella, in 2003 I think, he waited on line with the hoi polloi to get their autographs.) Maybe he would release their next album. Supposedly the demos they've recorded since being let go by Atlantic are good enough, or nearly so, to be released commercially, so it wouldn't require much money for recording expenses. Of course, The Donnas could be expecting, and holding out for, a much bigger label.

The Donnas ran their course...get over it...at some point after all the posturing and "girls can rock shtick" & overproduction ...you have to write some decent songs that can last..

Hey Joe T, have you ever seen The Donnas live??? If not, shut yer mouth, cause their guitar player nailed "The Trooper" the last time I saw them. Can't really fake that.

I didnt say they weren't good musicians...or that they don't "rock" live ...but there are plently of good musicians out there both male or female that rock...... Their songwriting was just cliched & weak... and that's the reason they didnt have any staying power

The Donnas performed "The Trooper" live? Even once? http://x.myspace.com/images/blog/smileys/clueless.gif

Allison Robertson of The Donnas is a fucking amazing guitarist. You can hear her play a bit of The Trooper if you check out her segment she did with Jam Vox on youtube.
