As the title of this post suggests, there are a number of pressing items regarding Mint Record’s The Organ. They are as follows:
1) According to Chart Magazine, bassist Ashley Webber has left the band. Also according to Chart, The Killers are “the next big thing.” Rumour has it that Organ’s 604 label boss Chad Kroeger will be taking up bass for the band.
2) Organ lead singer Katie Sketch is featured on a cover of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” on a Mint Records Christmas collabo, It’s a Team Mint XMas, Vol. 2!. This cover is an important development with the band, however it is not as important as item number 1.
3) The band recorded a song for an upcoming episode of television’s “The L Word.” The L here is not for Love (yuk!), but for Lesbians. The show, about a group of lesbians, stars Flashdance star Jennifer Beals and the original Foxy Brown Pam Grier. The Organ song will be featured on the premier on February 27, 2005.
4) Finally, The Organ is currently recording for a 7″ released by Go Metric Records in the fall. Torontoist will keep you updated with Organ news items as they are made available.
