Happy New Year everyone!!
As you can see, no Sister Kinderhook yet! It is more likely to be out in June 2010!
Two songs from this album are played in the PREGNANT LIVE (see Mel’s den page) that was recorded at the Knitting Factory in September 1909 and that came out a few days ago on the official merch page.
- Kinderhook Hoopskirt Works
- Holocaust of Giants
Since last time, she also pulled out Ancient Cross-Dressing Songs, a small 3-songs CD about women dressing as men. That is already sold out. (Mel’s den page)
Catie D’amica left the band and it’s now Julie Griner on drums.
I have created a Sister Kinderhook page, that is quite raw for now, as I have no pretty layout or album cover whatsoever to post!
I have also created a discography. 1993-2010 years of albums.
Melora gave birth to her second daughter in November, and she’s named Ivy and it’s pretty <3
We’re still waiting for that rarities album J
Since last time, a few things.
- Melora has sold out copies of a very very limited
CD with artwork done by herself and Hollis, with three tracks on it called
I am collecting the various artworks of each and every CD as each of them is a different piece of art!
- Melora is, as we speak, recording a new LP, probably entitled “Sister Kinderhook” and it is due for August. I can’t wait!
-Melora was on the cover of Origivation this spring. It is digitally available on their website (www.origivation.com) Pictures by James Jackson available on the Mel’s den page.
Happy New Year ! (again!)
I haven’t given news for a long year, a year without too many Raspies…
Times have changed! After a long silence, hidden in
You can see pictures of it in the “Melora’s den” page!
Plus, she is again expecting twin CDs, to come out in 2009:
- A new new brand new Rasputina full length Cd to follow up the LP “P. World”
- And a rarities album! Of never heard songs and covers and instrumentals…
I can’t wait to both receive my live album, my dear special numbered copy, and all that is to come. I had a bad feeling about a Melora’s note last April, but all is well that ends well.
Jonathon has left the band without a note.
Catie D’Amica will be the drums for now on, and Daniel DeJesus accompanies Melora to the cello.
Also, check out on Melora’s song for REPO!The genetic opera!
And, somewhere, someone owns very very rare songs of a Raspy demo… Vain Aviary/Betty Platz/ I’m in love with my car/Grey are the Greenest Eyes

Happy New Year !
Time runs fast, hey?
A new picture in the PW page! Melora’s hands, taken by Lauren Golberg.
I re-did the whole TFTE page as well. Same design, but no mistakes and no broken URL. And “Melora’s den”, the “misc page”, works again.
The photoshoot of Melora in her house was for a documentary called “Goth- cruise”. We have to keep an eye on that !
Wow, long time no writing! But I didn’t stop adding tons of pictures every now and then when I found some! Like, for example, in the Perilous World page, nourished with Postcards scans and pictures from the poster as well as merch.
And today I
found a photoshoot of Melora at her house, in
will be live in London, ENGLAND, on
There is a new song added to the setlist, it goes like that :
1816, The Year Without A Summer
According to Melora’s email, there will be three formats for the new album: Vinyl LP, CD and a limited edition deluxe CD.
-Concerning the gallery, I added a new pic of Melora from Symon Chow in the frustration period.
- The bobble doll winning pics of Brooke from Frothy.com as well as the bobble doll box and a fresh picture of the puppets set.
- New pictures in the Perilous World! Page. Two of Mel and Jon, another one with Sarah, some merch, and finally, the promotion CD of “Oh, Perilous World!” Thanks to candyquackenbush.
The April tour is almost done, there have been a few pics shown (see inourbloomers), but it was apparently great shows!
We have news now about the new album!
It will be called ‘Oh, Perilous World!’ And will be out on June, 26th on Filthy Bonnet Records.
Here’s the tracklist, there’s no layout shown and I dunno yet where to buy it. Ryan Obermeyer has been working on it though J
The Year Without A Summer
My motto: Never Give Up !
a year has passed now. I am back from
Folks, in case you didn’t know, Zoë has long gone, and is now part of the LOST SOULS of the Rasputina history. (But don’t forget her admirable cello solo work on her website or her myspace!) Two new souls appeared, at least for the short tour, Sarah Bowman, and Erica Mulkey alias UNWOMAN.
Melora has got her own EP entitled “PERPLEXIONS” that was out in December 2006 and you can order it here on cdbaby if it’s not already done. There are no lyrics in it, so friends on inourbloomers tried to guess them. I added them and a pic of the album in the “Melora’s den” page.
Rasputina has two new songs on compilations. “Coraline” on the Neil Gaiman “Where’s Neil when you need him?” compilation and “A Skeleton Bang” on “The Colours are Brighter”.
A few Rasputina new songs (Oh, Bring back the egg unbroken, Choose me for Champion, Draconian Crackdown, Stay Behind, Yellow Cake, Infidel, Retinue Moons )(from the forthcoming album) are “lookable” and “hearable” on youtube. ;) You’re free to go and listen or just wait for the new album which is due for SPRING 2007.
!!There are recitals for April 2007!! :
Fri-Apr-06 NEW YORK, NY — GRAMERCY THEATRE
Rasputina has a MYSPACE page too!
A bit of news into each Rasputina page :
- 3 pictures of the TFTE video.
- A new pouch version
- A merch picture with a pouch on it and some promo thingie.
- The version of TFTE with red titles on the back.
- The CF exclusive digipack version.
- The “rock me” T-shirt added in merch.
- The ceased and desisted colour book!
- New Ryan Obermeyer pictures of the band before Zoë left!
- 3 new Sam Lahoz pictures from the magazine UGLY PLANET, issue number 3. Go buy your copy there!).
- A picture of Melora with Pablo from Contramano pretending to be her.
- The Frustration T-shirts
- The bobblehead original non-colored contest picture.
NEW CD :
It is supposed to be entitled THURSDAY CHRISTIAN, as the rumor says. Just wait and see!
I created a page for this forthcoming album, gathering all the pics I could.
- See it here.
- Brad Walsh gentily let me use his pictures of Melora taken during an interview in February 2006.
And there are a few new merch stuff.
AND FOR THE REST :
I found a delicious big-sized picture of Melora in ON MY KNEES! KIM WOOD, the director of the movie has a nice myspace page and a trailer of ON MY KNEES on it. I made some screen prints you can see in “Melora’s den” along with Melora’s PERPLEXION CD.
A few words to say that waterstained.com looks dead and that it’s sad, and that there is a new (not so new but not known!!) interview of Rasputina in the Sentimentalist, issue #19 (See my post on inourbloomers).
For those who can, enjoy the tour.
So, are you full of joy and Rasputinism now?
