Okay, what's the deal? I've been checking on lien to try and pick up that solo KRAIG JOHNSON cd that came out a while back. Can't find it anywhere. did it really come out? So it came out, and sold out and went oop instantly? Anyone have any details. It's usually credited as KRAIG JARRET JOHNSON.

thanks

Kraig's "new" album -- the one that has been in the works for the last coupla years, the one that was originally scheduled to come out last fall in Europe -- still hasn't come out. Best guess when it will be released: early next year via Bittersweet Records in Spain with, hopefully, a domestic release to follow. There are many reasons for the delay, but there's no doubt that the sudden flurry of Smog-ish activity this year has pushed his solo stuff back a notch or two. In the interim he has continued to record new material -- he could prolly release a Sandanista length opus at this rate. The only place to hear his new stuff the last few years has been in concert; he has been playing several of the new songs during increasingly infrequent Program gigs locally. He also uncorked some of the new solo material during a tour earlier this year in Spain with Gary Louris.

Kraig's 7 song self-titled EP/mini-album that was released domestically in Nov. 2003 is long out of print, although there supposedly are still copies of a Euro version (released by Bittersweet with 3 extra tracks) still floating around in the cyber marketplace. Trying to get anything directly from Bittersweet is, to say the least, a frustrating experience. My suggestion if you ever come across a copy of the 2003 release: buy first & ask ???s later.
