What's happening now, what ... I'm sure it's been ages since I've updated this thing. We're playing on Monday, yes this coming Monday September 8th, at the Abbey Pub, it's a benefit show which should hopefully be of some help to a person in desperate need of medical attention. We'll be playing covers, I think, all covers - some familiar, some not so familiar. We're playing covers because we don't want to step on the toes of our show at Schuba's later in the month - that's on the 26th, followed immediately by a show in Milwaukee the next night. And look at this! Next weekend, the weekend after this one, we're playing two shows in Pittsburgh! It's madness.
So we've been in and out of the studio for a while now. Our work ethic in the studio is becoming more and more comical... like, where we used to book five days, spend the first three recording ten or twelve songs, and the next two days mixing and finishing the thing, now we book a couple days when we can, and spend those two days recording a song or two, maybe mixing a song or two... and talking about Steely Dan, or George Bush, or food, or eating food, or talking about drinking, or drinking, etc. It's an enjoyable, if not the most efficient, pace.
So go to all of these shows. Eventually a new record will be completed and it will come out some time after that. Please enjoy the rest of the good weather, because soon it will be nothing but ice and wind and flooding and terror.
Somehow we've gone from abject laziness to playing five shows in the month of September. Five shows! That's practically a tour! It's madness.
That's all I have to say. Back to the studio this weekend, but don't get your hopes up - there's still alot of work to be done.
Did I say we were selling the "You Are Dignified" EP? Well, we were. But we're not selling it anymore, I'm afraid - we're clean out of 'em.
Sorry about that. You can buy it from Reckless, or from your local independent retailer. You can also go here and amuse yourself at our, my, and my brothers' expense.
How long has it been? Two months? More than two months? That is a long, long time.
Things have been happening though. We've all been working and doing our things. Andy bought a house here in Chicago. My cat started peeing on everything. We all got older, I'm sure you've noticed that. And we did start recording some new music at Electrical, music which will likely be released someday in the future; and we've made plans for a few shows in the Fall, which there will be alerts as to the details here at some point soon.
That's it though. Ha! Got to get the cookies out of the oven! That's right: chocolate chip cookies for me! Hallelujah!
We got more stuff out! More stuff! Can't have enough stuff. It's a 5-song EP called You Are Dignified, all acoustic covers of songs by Pavement, Shellac, Nina Nastasia, Robbie Fulks, and Bedhead. Fuckin right on, that is just awesome! Who released that shit? I'll tell you right now man, it's out on Touch&Go in N. America and 12XU in lots of other places. You can also buy it from us, if you wanna.
More news in, like, three months.
