Random Sandinista-related thoughts

By now most of you are aware that Daniel Ortega is in the midst of his own Sandinista tribute right now, having regained the prime seat of power in Nicaragua. I have grave reservations about the man's character and politics, but anyone whose opponent is supported by Oliver North can't be all bad.

Do you remember Sandinista Now? It was a 12-track LP sampler Epic released in the U.S. because the label was afraid (rightly so) that radio programmers might be afraid to sort through a 36-track monster. We're going to do something similar. We'll keep you posted.

Storybox honcho Scott Brodeur directed me and now I'll direct you to The Good, The Bad, and the Queen, Paul Simonon's latest project. Especially to us diehard Fela Kuti fans, this might be interesting.
