Special thanks to: (in alphabetical order) Craig "Archbishop" , Jill Waterson NOTE: This discography format is based on the They Might Be Giants discography maintained by John Relph NOTES: Concrete Blonde used to be known as the Dreamers (on The D.I.Y. Album), and Dream 6 before they got the name "Concrete Blonde" which was given to them by Michael Stipe. Johnette Napolitano used to be a member of the Ringling Sisters, and wrote the song "Roses Grow" originally for them. "Les Coeurs Jumeaux" translates to "Twin Hearts"; one can wonder what the rest of the song translates to... There is supposed to be a video to be released entitled "Mid-Life Crisis" which is rumored to be a home-video documentary shot by Johnette herself, and mixed in with other footage. Latest information has the release date listed as "TBA". Originally it was to be released simultaneously with WALKING IN LONDON. There is an e-mailing list for discussion of Concrete Blonde, Johnette Napolitano, and related groups and/or people. The address is . If you would like to join, send your request to . PLEASE remember that the `concrete-blonde' address forwards to the entire list; for administrative correspondence, send only to the `-request' address. There is a Concrete Blonde fan club, $10 fee, but it has not done anything as of yet. Information with question marks is not known/verified, if you have further information, please let me know. There are probably several more Promo singles, for example.
