In case you are wondering why this damn news section doesn't get updated that often, it's because The Facebook is so much more convenient to keep everyone looped in. Be our friend on The Facebook and with luck The Facebook won't screen our posts to you. They spend a great deal of time trying to sell us the idea on trying to "boost" our post.
So we have a new record done called "The Good Fight". We call it "The Good Fight" because getting these things out is never easy. Many things conspire against you and it's easy to give up to the struggle. We recorded this with our pal John Smerek in Detroit at Rust Belt. We have been busting out a lot of the songs live so they won't be total surprises to those of you coming to gigs. We think you'll like it. It's a bit more twangy than Nashville Surprise and probably a bit more representative of what we do best, which is tweaking all the good shit from American music to serve our purpose.
We have a whole bunch of live dates coming up fast on the heels of Gary's summer camp playing guitar with Pere Ubu. Hopefully you caught him doing that. If not, make sure and catch us doing what we do soon. We've got a whole bunch of new songs on the way we haven't even recorded yet. It never stops. It just keeps getting better as we figure out how to do it.
We will let you know when the LP is pressed. It takes fucking forever since Sony decided to repress shit like Huey Lewis and Top Gun soundtracks back to vinyl. Sigh.
