Nights at the Roundtable with an encore appearance by Intimate Stranger, in acknowledgment of their hitting the charts for radio airplay in the U.S. with their single "Under".
May 19, 2011

Tessie of Intimate Stranger - now comes the fun part.

Anybody who has read this blog for more than three months knows how much of a fan I am of Intimate Stranger. I have been in the cheering section within 30 seconds of hearing their first tracks on MySpace a few years ago and it hasn't let up.

But finally there are results and the dream is starting to unfold. I just got word a couple days ago that Intimate Stranger are finally getting airplay on radio in the U.S. and they have made the Indie charts, both firsts for the band. And both payoffs from very hard and relentless work. And for that I am completely thrilled.

So tonight, as a kind of celebration of their first airwave success I am posting the single currently being played around the country. Under came out last year but it's only now starting to grab audiences and make fans.

It is one of the great pleasures in life to see. There is always something gratifying to see a band you've been so excited over finally get the recognition they deserve. And believe me, it didn't come over night.

Hopefully, this is the first of what will be many more to come in the future. And you were all in on the ground floor.
