Hey friends of WMFO!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the 2014 WMFO Donations Drive and made it such a smashing success. We made our goal of $5000 and we couldn’t have done it without your help!
Well that was fast! Not only has L7 reformed but their tour dates are starting to trickle in! As mentioned in the last post, L7 needs people to start their army to help promote a world tour. I signed up a few days ago and yesterday I got a link to download (legally!) their first album and one of their promo pics! Today I got word of their tour with full details to be release on January 28, 2015! By signing up I’ve already gotten my money’s worth and it was FREE!!! What next? A kickstart project to help fund their documentary – L7: Pretend We’re Dead. If you haven’t listened to their music, go now. I’ll wait!

Or you could pretend to be dead – your call! I was searching through some videos on youtube the other day looking for Nina Gordon’s (Veruca Salt) cover of NWA’s Straight Outta Compton – Please see my website for the actual youtube link – NSFW. Anyway, looking to the right side for additional videos I came across L7. I was a fan of their music but over the years they kinda fell off the radar and it makes sense because they went into their hiatus 14 years ago. That was then, this is now. Apparently there has been a groundswell of activity calling for the band to do another tour. L7 have spoken among themselves and have decided, Yes! They would like to tour, however they are going to need a lot of people to help spread the word. Where do you fit in? Join their mailing list and help spread the word. If you’ve never heard them before you can also listen to their stuff which is streamed off of their website. They are a fun, energetic band and if they pull off a tour, you can thank me later!
