When we last spoke to John Morgan Kimock, the drummer was gearing up to debut his exciting new project JMMY. Though Kimock is part of a number of bands, including that of Mike Gordon and K I M O C K, a project with his father Steve Kimock, JMMY is something totally unique. “JMMY is like an incubator for me to re-establish some of my core musicality that I feel like I didn’t get to work on as much as I would have liked to in the past.”After sharing the debut JMMY track “Low Lands” earlier this year, the collaboration between Kimock and Alex Luquet is pushing forward with a brand new music video. Titled “Telephone,” the new song and video takes a look at our generation’s obsession with phones. “The video came about with my bud Jason Gallagher just hearing the track, and putting it together with a library of telephone related footage that he had been collecting. He has a good eye for these types of audio/visual connections,” said Kimock.“I sort of see hints of the whole telephone addiction in there, which is starting to bubble up as an actual thing in today’s society.”We’re excited to premiere the new video! Produced by Todd Shied and directed by Jason Gallagher, watch “Telephone” streaming below.Kimock is keeping busy throughout the remainder of 2016, playing shows with all of his projects at different times. JMMY kicks off a run of shows throughout the Northeast this week, and the band will be joined by Justin Mazer (American Babies) for every show of the run! The drummer will also be touring with Mike Gordon and K I M O C K throughout October and November. Check out the full tour schedule below!JMMY DatesOctober 5 – Bishops Lounge Northampton MA w.

Offshore helicopter operator Bristow Group expects to emerge from Chapter 11 by the end of the month following a confirmation of its reorganization plan by a U.S. court.A Bristow helicopter; Author: Ronnie Robertson – under the CC BY-SA 2.0 licenseBristow voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas in May 2019.On October 4, 2019, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas confirmed Bristow’s amended plan of reorganization and indicated that it will enter a written order to this effect.According to the company’s statement on Monday, it expects to consummate its financial restructuring process and successfully emerge from Chapter 11 by October 31, 2019.Upon emergence as a privately held company, Bristow’s largest owners are expected to be affiliates of Solus Alternative Asset Management LP, South Dakota Investment Council, Empyrean Capital Partners, LP, Bain Capital Credit and Oak Hill Advisors, who are expected to own in excess of 50% of Bristow’s equity collectively, with the remaining equity held by other secured creditors and unsecured noteholders.Under the terms of the approved plan, at emergence the company will receive $535 million of new capital from a majority of Bristow’s secured and unsecured noteholders: $385 million through an equity rights offering, and Bristow’s $150 million debtor-in-possession loan, which was funded in August 2019 and will convert into new equity of the reorganized company at emergence.L. Don Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bristow, said, “Achieving plan confirmation is an important milestone that comes less than five months after we initially filed Chapter 11. As a reorganized company, we will emerge a stronger, well capitalized global organization with an industry-leading balance sheet and strong liquidity.”The consummation of the plan will be subject to the satisfaction or waiver of several conditions, including completion of the equity rights offering.Spotted a typo?
