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.)

AND FROM OUT OF NOTHING I CAN DELIVER A HEADBUTT

Here's some photos from our West Coast tour with Dum Dum Girls. Our friend Mario also came along to play records and pedal his label wares, plus "Mean" Jon Greene came and did sound. This was basically our whole circle of friends traveling together and that trip was one of the more special ones for us. Hopefully we can do a longer version in the future. Sandy Beaches took all these pictures on her cell phone.


Here is the glamour of touring. Sitting around for hours, waiting to soundcheck, drinking beer and watching my ever-growing ass get bigger.

We all got in trouble with the faculty-staff at Del Taco for letting a homeless woman in after the doors were locked. The manager's face got so red that it matched his famous Del Scorcho sauce.
