    NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 07, 2006 -- KOCH Records announces the release of "Meet The Smithereens!," the new album by New Jersey's The Smithereens in January 2007. Paying homage to The Beatles' groundbreaking album, "Meet The Beatles!," the Smithereens have rerecorded the album in its entirety, and the result is a fun and nostalgic trip through 12 classic songs done Smithereens style.


    I'll be first in line for this!

    That's a very accurate quote. I heard Pat Dinizio on the radio a few weeks ago, and he has some interesting things going on. One is you can book him to come play in your house for you and a few friends. He shows up with an accoustic guitar and plays in your living room.

    The other is even more bizzare, he will invite you over to HIS house to listen to him play in HIS living room. You just have to bring the meatballs. He said it is explained on his website.

    If he'll bring his former producer, Don Dixon, then we've got a party.

    The Smithereens were a great band back in the day. "Smithereens 11" is a really good record.

    Also, does he still do the thing where, for $300, you send him some lyrics, and he makes a song out of 'em?

    I believe DiNizio also was (or will be) on some reality show where he tries out to be a catcher on an independent league baseball team. At age 50.

    That flashed through my mind earlier, but I could not quite pin down the details.
