LIVE IN FRANCE

hey hey hey hey hey hey hey, if you wanna check out a full live set we did for french national radio, click HERE. We are "Black Session #321". Mix is a little kooky for the first half of the first song, but after that it sounds pretty good. We are what the french call "le c'est incompetent".

BSEW #4

OK SERIOUSLY, THIS IS ACTUALLY THE BEST SONG EVER WRITTEN. WHY? OH BECAUSE JOHN LENNON WAS THE BEST SONGWRITER OF ALL TIME. HE INVENTED EVERY GENRE, EVEN RAP.

HONORARY TELEVISION PERSONALITIES

We were honored to meet one of our favorite songwriters, Dan Treacy, on our trip to the UK last month. He came out to one of our shows and we made fast friends. Later that night we were scheduled to play a short acoustic set on John Kennedy's show on XFM. Dan agreed to come with us and perform an old Television Personalities song on the air. At the last minute (5 minutes before show time!) he changed his mind and quickly taught us a new (brilliant and beautiful) song called "Not a Bad Bone in My Body". This man is one of the more underrated songwriters in recent memory and this song, even in it's rough and unrehearsed form, shows that he still has it. Very honored that we were able to play with him. Check it out HERE.

MEETING A SMITH - THE MOVIE

We were lucky enough to meet a few heroes on this most recent UK tour. When we were in Manchester we played on Mike Joyce's radio show and he did a short interview with us. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to answer questions when in your head "he was in the fucking smiths, he was in the fucking smiths, he was in the fucking smiths" is on repeat.

2 years already.... A day doesn't go by where we don't think of you. Miss you and we love you forever xoxo

COCK UP AT THE PRESSING PLANT

Evidently someone had been ingesting too much 2XB-27 at the pressing plant and our vinyl is not done yet. CD/Download is available everywhere today but vinyl isn't going to be officially out until Oct. 26h. However, the label tells us that stores will have it before then and we will definitely have vinyl on tour. The first show we will have them at will most likely be the Mercury Lounge show next week. We'll have them in the UK as well. Sorry for any dissapointment...

NATIONAL SLEEP FOREVER DAY

Our record is out today! Go buy it at yr local record store or through itunes, etc. We are going to spend all day drinking in celebration and slapping each other with the hot mops.

YOU CAN'T FUCK WITH THIS BAND

Don't ever let anyone tell you Richard Hell & the Voidoids aren't one of the greatest bands off all time. Being underrated and/or lumped in with bands lesser than them does not equal suckiness. The truth of the matter is Hell's lyrics elevated punk writing to poetry and Robert Quine completely reinvented rock n roll guitar playing. I don't know why they aren't hailed as kings as they well should be :(

FRIDAY AUGUST 20TH

HEY! we are ultra fired up for this show. woven bones are one of the best bands going right now and they are also some of our best friends. due to living in different cities and constant touring, we almost never see each other so playing together is obviously extra special for us. heavy hawaii are also great friends and one of the most promising new bands i've heard in a long time. they have a new record coming out on art fag recordings that absolutely kills!! do not miss this show!

WENDY

When I was in 5th grade I hung out with this kid Brian. He lived with his mom and his sister Wendy and he had this older Marine brother who came home every few months. We used to get into a ton of trouble together. He was the first person I smoked pot with - we would walk like little zombies to the circle k and buy hot dogs and play video games and walk to the polluted creek by Community Park. It was at that creek at Community Park where we got in a rock fight Tom Judd and his white-trash cousins. No one actually hit me dead on with a rock but one bounced up and got me in the nose and I got a nosebleed and sort of ran off a little bit and hid but I remember seeing Brian crying and throwing rocks with more violence and fury than I'd ever seen before. He hit one of Tom Judd's asshole friends in the head and it gushed blood and everyone scattered. Brian was in hysterics, crying and shaking and kicking and spitting. I closed in on him, slowly, and talked him down; "Brian-- calm down buddy -- calm down--calm down" and he eventually calmed down and folded into himself and sobbed.

DIRTY BEACHES 'TRUE BLUE b/w SWEET 17' 7"!!!

Photobucket


Head over to theZoo Music site to purchase a copy of Dirty Beaches stellar "True Blue" 7". 500 on black wax with the stunning "Sweet 17" on the b-side. This is what it would have sounded like if Neu! and Roy Orbison had gotten married (Kenneth Anger would have officiated the ceremony - I would have been in the crowd...probably drunk.)
