Sheesh, sorry for not updating in over 2 years! I think a larger overall update is probably coming very soon, but for right now, a few things to mention:

Michael Holt has a number of solo albums available, as well as original copies of Bingham's Hole (ft/ Hiawatha's Lullaby). Check it out here on Michael's page.

Keith set up a Mommyheads discussion group over at Yahoo. Go join up!

Also, be sure to check out the swell quirky-pop stylings of fellow Mommyheads fan Mitch Friedman. Hi Mitch!

And for what it's worth, I couldn't help noticing recently, as I was watching the TV movie, Martha Inc., the score was done by someone named "Adam Cohen"...

Don't forget to get yourself in the holiday mood with the Mommyheads' Christmas Song, and Christmas Song (Catskills Version).

We can all assume that Adam is still alive and well via photographic evidence from his pal John Vanderslice (whose latest album, Life and Death of an American Fourtracker, I highly recommend.)

8/05/02
A slew of live stuff and other goodies should be showing up here in the near future (thanks to Jay!). Check back regularly for updates. Here's one:

I Started Breathing (Live)

Michael Holt's solo album, Pajama Garden, can now be obtained on CD from Fang Records. It is highly recommended for fans of the Mommyheads, particularly for fans of their early stuff. Thanks to Francis Manns for the tip-off!

For those of you keeping score, note that Jeff Palmer has been picked up by the wonderful quasi-alt-country band The Court & Spark.

3/21/02
Chris Rael has just informed me that the Acorn CD re-release is now available! Hop on over to Fang Records website to buy it.

I'll be adding features and content in the coming weeks, but I would greatly appreciate any comments/info/corrections/etc. that anyone can provide. Just drop me a line.

Adam has composed the music for a new Macy's commercial starring his sister, Haylynn.

"ANYONE inclined to diss [sic] Coney Island would do well to take note of the Cohen family, which hails from the neighborhood. Daughter Haylynn Cohen began her modeling career at 16 when she was discovered skateboarding on the streets while attending Lincoln HS, signed with Next models, and snagged ad campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, Missoni and Burberry. Her brother Adam, meanwhile, founded a fine band called the Mommyheads that got signed to Geffen records. Their dad, Dave, dreamed they'd work together, and now Adam has written the music for a new Macy's commercial starring his sis."

Jenny Toomey has covered 'Needmore, PA' on her splendid new album, 'Antidote'.
