hand fed babies got some city paper love on their top 20 records of 2006. HFB_Live 2006 was chosen among some others for the list:

so sleepy. last night was the first sound scene. i think it went well. tons of people and interesting stuff going on. fiona and rebecca played a wonderful improvised set and aaron leitko made this amazing 11pm soundtrack that was both beautiful and dark. chris grier nabbed the loud award for the night. i'm not sure when he doesn't nab that award. layne and i dropped the multi-speaker, audience-as-obstacle-and-participant sound composition. had fun but was way more tired than i wanted to be. working on the plain lace tape art. finishing MOTH releases and getting things in order for some events early next year.
there are several new releases coming in the next few months. plain lace cassette release, plums live cd-r and an on-line compilation that should be ready sometime before the new year. i'm working on FFFFs recordings, hand fed babies are slowly recording our first full-length and i have been practicing with layne garrett for an upcoming performance at la casa in mt. pleasant, washington, dc.
