We know that Giant Records isn't going to be Giant much
longer--in fact they will be unveiling a new nom de label and new logo in
mid-February. To kick off the new year the erstwhile Giant Records just signed
that quintessential power pop group from Seattle, Superdeluxe, who until this
very moment resided on Portland, Oregon's classy boutique label, Tim/Kerr
Records, home of Pere Ubu and the stupendously adorable Dandy Warhols.
Superdeluxe attracted a lot of attention after criss-crossing the U. S. last
year, ending the year playing at Mo's in Seattle with the Presidents Of The
United States and the Posies in yet another netcasted concert . Their final
Tim/Kerr release was the Christmas EP Electric Holiday, which featured
the totally cool "All I Want Is A Skateboard." Giant/Not Giant plans to reissue
Superdeluxe's 1995 T/K Record's CD Famous ASAP, before getting them into
the studio to record a follow-up for the label.
