Forget the Beaujolais Nouveau..

...handmade guitar cables from Divine Noise est arrivee! (Well, don't forget the Beaujolais entirely. It was Duke Ellington's favorite wine, you know. ) Divine Noise cables are made one at a time, by hand, by Gil Divine in Portland, Oregon. Learn more about Gil in a post from March 8th. See and hear one in action here.

Old Style is the only retail outpost in the known world for Divine Noise cables and we're stocking them in 10, 15, and 20 foot lengths. Patch cables are also available. Mr. Divine builds his cables with silver solder and lots of love. They sound great and will last forever. Folks like Lucinda Willaims, Spoon, Yo La Tengo, Eric Bachmann, Jack White, and others use Divine Noise cables and now you can, too.

The echt kuhl Divine Noise logo was designed by amazing Scott Devendorf of The National. The band's brilliant new record, High Violet, hits stores on Tues, 11 May on 4AD.

...can be found in Old Style's vinyl section. Second floor, next to the rakes and bow saws. They are sandwiched between a first pressing of "Songs of Leonard Cohen'" (Columbia stereo two-eye. $25.00) and Antonio Carlos Jobim "The Composer of Desafinado, Plays." On Verve, $10.00. -Received these this week from Endless Boogie's bass player, Mark Ohe who tells me a second CD edition is being pressed but this is it for the gatefold double-vinyl. Get those hot-stampers while they're hot!
