Slumberland began operations in 1989 as a collective effort consisting of members of DC area bands Velocity Girl, Big Jesus Trash Can/Whorl, Black Tambourine and Powderburns. We were inspired by such musical happenings as C-86, early Creation, Postcard, K, Bus Stop, lower East Side noise, and also the renegade art aesthetics of people like Cage, Burroughs and Duchamp. We were complete musical neophytes but so pumped-up about all the amazing things going on in post-punk independent music that we just had to jump in.

As Bill sort of hinted at, one headliner possibility is The Pains of Being Pure at Heart who just headlined Webster Hall. Tickets for the Bell House show are now on sale.

Rocketship's "A Certain Smile, a Certain Sadness" is a SLUMBERLAND jam.

Also, I like some Veronica Lake!!!

Man, even Sarandon's own label undervalues them. I guess a band who puts out an album called Kill Twee Pop! would be popular with fans who discovered Slumberland with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

yes, it must be that they are undervalued by their own label, not the difficulty and expense of flying a band over for two shows, not to mention the difficulty of a band having the time to do such a thing.

I love your site and the article is useful!

I think you need a bit more of a story with this as this isn't really a news story in its current form. Perhaps you could write about why you like Michael so much?

I'm totally going, though I feel a bit weird about the resurgence. Saw The Ropers twice and never saw Lorelei, and I think their one LP was one of the most unique and strange albums of the 90's. The one thing that I think will be weird is that The Ropers were all about their youthfulness and the crossing of early New Order meets shoegaze. The youth is gone but "All The Time" is kind of the perfect guitar pop record and was supposedly one of Interpols early points of reference.
