Take one down, pass it around

I love the first two records by Australian group Ninetynine, which at that time was pretty much a solo project by Laura (or is it Lora?) Macfarlane, the original drummer of Sleater-Kinney. There's a great site put together by a fan about the band, and it's got a discography that includes three more records, none of which I've ever seen in a store around here or heard, but which I desperately want. The band was involved in a cooperative distribution group called Choozy, but I can't find them any more. whois says that their domain name is pending deletion, so I assume they've shut down. But I did find their newest release, The Process, on a new label. The news page on the aforementioned fan site says that there's a US release pending for The Process, but it's just below a listing of "upcoming" tour dates for October 2002, so maybe that didn't happen. It also mentions that Ninetynine records are available through Humble Pie Records in Sydney, and through Stickfigure Distribution in the US; they list a vinyl version of the band's third album, which I don't have, and CDs of the first two, which I do. I wish they had CDs of the third. <sigh> What I really wish is that I had had enough money a couple of years ago when Choozy was still around to order the records then....

Note: I’m tired of clearing the spam from my comments, so comments are no longer accepted.

You can contact the band directly via Unstable Ape records. Choozy alas is no more.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
