Jimi Tenor will be doing an orchestral show in Belgium as part of the Botanique Festival in Brussels. The show takes place on September 29 at Cirque Royale, the former indoor circus. The circular structure of the venue allows the audience and performer to come close together. See the On Tour page for more tour info.

'Out Of Nowhere' was released in the US on July 25. "It has the potential to appeal to a wide audience", says Kris Gillespie of Matador. Jimi, who is touring with and without a big orchestra in Europe this autumn, might well extend his tour to the US too. "We are trying to hook Jimi up with municipal and university orchestras to perform the album," says Gillespie.

He talked about 'Out Of Nowhere', of course, but also about making sauerkraut in London and how stroking a piece of meat onstage got him signed to Warp. He also played some of his favourite records and introduced a couple of session tracks he recorded for the show the previous day. These are now available in realaudio at Worldwide.

'All the Time' by Nicole Willis is out now (Sähkö/Puu-20).
The 12" is produced by Jimi Tenor, Maurice Fulton and Nicole, and includes remixes from Jori Hulkkonen and Roberto Rodriguez. Here's what Nicole has to say about it:

"Well, we're having fun piecing together a video of the 'All the Time', who really knows where and how it will be shown. We don't know if the industry has use for a video that took about 2.49 to make (that's not true, Maurice's tube fare alone was at least 1.60). It seemed like a good idea at the time. Seriously though, Jimi is shooting and editing the video so it's going to be good! Any way, we think it's got the ear marks of a 'pop' hit, sans the flesh colored hose. For any DJ's out there who might be surfing, the Roberto Rodriguez remix is the sureshot! In the tradition of real music, just like my sister used to play before she went up-state to college, this should be a refreshing summer cocktail sans the electronic brainfreeze..."
