Angry Sinner in the Hands of God

Dear God,
I love Borat, like love love love Borat a lot too, but can you like strike everyone dumb for the next couple of weeks so I don't have to go on a shooting spree? Or make me deaf, whichever works for you.

Except for Snidely. He's the only person I've ever heard do a good Borat. He also does a good Sonny the 535 9th Ave landlord. Bless Snidely, God.

El Luchador!

Beggars Banquet

Some new tracks, some old...have at it and blow your load.

JBG at Fresh Tracks.

Old favorites The Good Goddamn and Get Ready for the F-U Fuzz are FINALLY, FINALLY presented in their remastered glory as the intended combo track. I think they'll have a bio and, gulp, pictures up later.

Coca Cola

So we just got signed by the independent marketing arm of Coke and its subsidiaries, or something like that, for distribution shit. Truth be told, I don't really totally understand how the thing works, but Amy assures me it's a really good thing and they're pretty selective and we'll make some money.

Hence, that's good. Onward and upward.

Why So Sad, Billy?

Took me like forever to find this picture. Man, I hate Billy Crystal.

I don't know who that woman is but she looks like a real piece of shit too. Fuck em both.

How's By You?

I always enjoy hearing about someone's sea change in opinion on a certain band or artist. Me, I guess I'd finger Stone Temple Pilots: when they first came out, Weiland's voice made me want to throw something through a window; now I think they're one of the best bands the 90s had to offer, right down to "Sex Type Thing." The tipping point was probably the 455th time I listened to "Interstate Love Song" and realized I should stop pretending I didn't really fucking love it. God bless the brothers DeLeo. Runners up: The Monkees--Mike Nesmith could write the SHIT out of a pop song. Anyone who just chuckled, go find "You Just May Be the One" and see what you think.

In the other direction...maybe Jonathan Richman. Loved "Roadrunner" like I was supposed to when I was getting into the 70s. Now, hmm, I kind of think he was never in the music business to begin with, just the Jonathan Richman business. Although he's by all accounts a real nice guy.

Alright, I'm done, now it's your turn.

Stow 24

White Guy: It tastes like yogurt, then (than??) it's not yogurt.
Black Guy: Give me some of that
White Guy: Yeah, right?
Black Guy: Sounds pretty good

White guy pays for chips and soda and whatever yogurt concoction. Black guy trails behind. They pause in front of magazine rack; black guy looks at FHM Magazine with Janet Jackson on cover.

White Guy (now speaking in the voice of George Jefferson): All I'm saying is: that look gooooood.
Black Guy: (nothing)

Just One Calorie or, The Big T

I need to know who's drinking Tab these days and where you're getting it.

Stymied finding it anywhere in MA.

Next up: JIF Tastetations

Move It or Lose It

115 plays yesterday over at the myspace. That's a high water mark for us, and even more awesome considering it was the Lord's day.

Listen, if you like what you read here and you like what you've heard over the days, months, years, wherever, whenever...we'd be well pleased if you'd make it an ancillary personal project to head over to there and click around, make comments, tell your friends, spread the word. Everything we're hearing tells us that labels, small and large, really do check into the # of friends and clicks a band is getting.

It really does make a difference and it would be much, much appreciated.

Thanks for listening.

N.B., Exile on Main Street, over and over again.
