Battleship Chamberlin...

Sorry for the headline and apologies that there's not been much happening here of late.  I'm afraid that ain't going to change any-time soon.   Anyway, to cut a long story shot - I might take the blog to a weekly round up kind of format rather than try and post stuff "as it happens", I just ain't really got the time to search for stuff on a regular basis anymore.

So I know in the last couple of weeks, Jimmy actually seems to have been doing some relatively cool stuff with drums again and we have 2 new albums to look forward to coming out later this year that feature his licks.

So that's where we are. 

And this is what Jimmy has lined up next;
On May 2nd, Scott Lucas will team up with drummer Jimmy Chamberlin (formerly of The Smashing Pumpkins) and bassist Matt Ulery under the band name Mary Shelley for a unique live performance during CIMM (Chicago International Music & Movies Fest). The trio will score Sergei Eisenstein’s 1925 silent film masterpiece “Battleship Potemkin” at 1st Ward (2033 W. North Ave.). More information about CIMM here: Lucas, a film buff who also writes about movies for Chicagoist (see his work here:, jumped at the chance to combine two of his biggest passions.

This is rather intriguing.  Should be cool to hear.

Here's them playing at some charity do at the Metro last year

Anyway, that's all for now.

Catch you later.
