    Interview: What The Fuck Happened To Jon of The Atom? COZY HOME, DEAD CANARIES, INTERVIEWS, QUIXODELIC RECORDS | Comments Off
    Anyone who has followed either The Daydream Generation or Cozy Home Records may have recently wondered what the fuck has happened to Jon of the Atom? The alarm bells perhaps started ringing when his MySpace moniker changed overnight to read "This Is Not Jon Of The Atom". After the surprisingly abstract haphazard musical mess that was Christmas concept album "An Off Day For The Jews Harp Christmas Caroler" in December 2006, JOTA seemed to drop off the radar.

      And so it came to pass that at 11.05pm on 27/1/08 my pc finally died.It was a heap of shit from the dark ages, but it served us well facilitating 5 Daydream Generation compilations, numerous Wheelies albums, and an online music festival. But if it had been the family pet then we would have put it out of its misery about a year ago.

The next day speakers blew. ...
