Revision 1.21
(6/16/92)
Please send me <clare@aero.org> any additional information you
have about these or other releases featuring Concrete Blonde or
any of its members.
Special thanks to: (in alphabetical order)
Craig "Archbishop" <V095PX49@ubvmsb.cc.buffalo.edu>, Jill Waterson
NOTE: This discography format is based on the They Might Be Giants discography
maintained by John Relph <relph@presto.ig.com>
NOTES:
Concrete Blonde used to be known as the Dreamers (on The
D.I.Y. Album), and Dream 6 before they got the name "Concrete
Blonde" which was given to them by Michael Stipe.
Johnette Napolitano used to be a member of the Ringling
Sisters, and wrote the song "Roses Grow" originally for them.
"Les Coeurs Jumeaux" translates to "Twin Hearts"; one can
wonder what the rest of the song translates to...
There is supposed to be a video to be released entitled
"Mid-Life Crisis" which is rumored to be a home-video
documentary shot by Johnette herself, and mixed in with other
footage. Latest information has the release date listed as
"TBA". Originally it was to be released simultaneously with
WALKING IN LONDON.
There is an e-mailing list for discussion of Concrete Blonde,

Johnette Napolitano, and related groups and/or people. The
address is <concrete-blonde@piggy.ucsb.edu>. If you would like
to join, send your request to
<concrete-blonde-request@piggy.ucsb.edu>. PLEASE remember that
the `concrete-blonde' address forwards to the entire list; for
administrative correspondence, send only to the `-request'
address.
There is a Concrete Blonde fan club, $10 fee, but it has not
done anything as of yet.
Information with question marks is not known/verified, if you
have further information, please let me know. There are
probably several more Promo singles, for example.
