Ten Thousand is Now on Vinyl and for Sale!
Like we warned you a few months ago, Ten Thousand by Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir has been re-issued on 180 gram vinyl by Lockbox Record Club, a new Canadian label founded by Nick Young of Calgary. We’ll hold off on the back story so you can jump to it and take a step towards getting your paws on it by following this link to Lockbox Record Club.
Lockbox Record Club wanted to reissue Canadian recordings on vinyl that have not yet been molded on 12 inches of plastic. Ten Thousand by Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir meant something to Nick, as it has to thousands of folks across this globe of ours. We discussed it with him over beers. (Not too many, though. We didn’t want to license the baby for a song.) We liked each other and came to an agreement. Indeed, we prefer Canadian micro-brews from the likes of Village and Phillips. We also came to an agreement on the terms of the pressing.
Fast forward to right damn now. Ten Thousand is on 180 gram vinyl, has a download code, and a Ten Thousand sticker. (Put the sticker somewhere nice.) Buy it. Let your fellow AMGC fans know it has arrived.

Historic Bass For Sale
This one. Right here. AMGC bass man Vlad Sobolewski might be letting it go to some lucky musician or collector. This is a difficult decision for him, but he feels it could be in better hands right now. This is the bass that laid down the tracks on all of the Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir discs, in all its custom painted glory. That’s right. It’s a rare collector’s item. You could own a piece of the Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir. If you’re interested in making an offer, send a message through this site or contact Vlad through Facebook. www.facebook.com/ vladimir.sobolewski?fref=nf
New Muerte Pan Alley. A Soundtrack.
Beware. Soundtrack to Intersection (and Music for Inside The Ku Klux Klan) is being prepped for release in April. Bob Keelaghan took his soundtracks for those two short films, embellished some of the music with Jason Woolley and Ron Oxoby, and added a few pieces that were relegated to the cutting room floor to compile a record that tells a story with the music alone. Be prepared for a melding of blues, avant garde, country, jazz, noise, and doom. Maybe it ain’t yer cup o’ tea. Maybe it is, if you like your tea spiked with herbs. Or if you have an appreciation of soundtracks. Or if you like to expand your brain. Stay tuned. In the meantime, here’s the film Intersection.

Nothing has changed. The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir remain broken up. Don’t pray for miracles.
