The Smashing Times visited Olympia, Washington for the very first time last week:
They came, they saw, they were seen.
They charmed and disarmed.
They moved on.
Now they's spreading their tangerine marmalade style poptones along the Pacific Coast; tonight, Oakland, Calif., then San Francisco, Santa Cruz and further south. Check the K SHOWS page for complete tour dates.
The new Smashing Times album This Sporting Life [PRNL/KLP293] unfurled last Friday and everyone is blasting it from the balustrade. Underground pop music has never felt this off the chain, off the cuff, off it's rocker, Rocker. Naturally, This Sporting Life [PRNL051/KLP293] is available now from The K Mail Order Dept.
The Smashing Times once met Julie Christie in a hotel lobby. She, as subtly as possible, let them know their bootlaces were errant. (true story.)
