Hot off the press: the Chokebore book "Chokebore : Days of Nothing" by Thierry Jourdain is out now on Camion Blanc! Order it here: Here's a bit of the French blurb: "En 1989, Troy sort en autoproduction un premier enregistrement avec la formation précédant Chokebore, Dana Lynn. Trente ans plus tard, en 2019, sa discographie solo devient aussi importante que celle avec Chokebore (cinq albums entre 1993 et 2002), avec la sortie de son cinquième album en tant que Troy Von Balthazar. L'occasion de marquer le coup et de célébrer trente ans d'écriture par un livre qui rendrait hommage à lui et à son groupe culte pour toute une génération."

A nice video made by Yelena Baykova. In her own words: "A few years ago I came across an artist who called herself Chiara Bautista, she made drawings that I became obsessed over. She also loved one of your songs. So I animated her art into a video with your song. Here it is:"
