Thursday, February 18, 2010


so i was hanging out today at the matador office and dean from true panther (look for a bitters 7" on this label by spring/early summer) mentioned a frizbee 7" or something like that, so I straight up copped the idea or took his advice, I really can't remember because I cant really fully listen when im sweating (I was hot, had too many layers of tour filth on)..


YOUNG GOVERNOR 7" CARVED INTO A FRISBEE OUT FOR SPRINGTIME! LOOK OUT FOR THAT ON SCOTCH TAPES AS PART OF THE GUVNOR/SCOTCH TAPES LATHE CUT SERIES! Also will be featuring tracks I record at my place by Huckleberry Friends, Tropics, Bruised Knees, Bitters, Lonely Wholesome + MORE. All stuff that is virtually unknown outside of Toronto from younger people I share a studio space with.

Huckleberry Friends "TESTING" will be the first lathe cut of our 7" series. Volume 1.
Carved into a picnic plate. All this stuff will be super limited cuz this type of shit is pretty awkward to get made. More on this later. I would recommend ordering these as soon as you hear about them. They will go fast becuz a) the songs are awesome and b) they are cut into whacky shit that people want to collect and/or eat off of (or throw in the air for their dogs).

heres a cute picture of me last year playing frizz!!

Hello. I am sitting pretty much in a closet at a Mcdonalds using their power outlet and their wifi. In beautiful and snowed in Columbus Ohio. Fu's show in Kentucky today was canceled due to show, so we are on our way to B-more. A few announcements before I eat a big mac then barf.

I'm djing. Mark pesci is too. So is my gino friend of Scarborough, Tony.
It will be fun.
Facebook shit here.


This wonderful Darlings record is out now. It took forever. It is amazing. I have it on tour with me, so if you come see fucked up it is at the merch table along with advance copies of the "call me when the cat dies" 7" that i just picked up in chicago, roommates cassettes (barely), and the guvnor mixtape cassette.

me and ol' matty d wrote this banger a while ago after i fell in love with a girl way out of my league and age range and then felt like huge fucking perverts. the reason why this record just came out and it took like 3 years was because the girl had to become of legal age before the song could come out says canadian courts. then he pissed on avril lavigne and moved to l.a to be the white jimmy hendrix, and i stayed in toronto waiting to see the female teenaged version of jimmy hendrix (targets girl) and give her this 7" as a present
she is probably dating DRAKE right now. Oh no.

More later.. This closet is stinks of liquid cleaner, and is full of pubes.. Fuck this..... bye.

Ok I know the whole cheeky cocky online punk persona is a bit tired but believe me.. THIS BLOG IS AWESOME!!

Another random good week on a background set where I played 1/18 lost youth's who get recruited to be white power terrorists and make bombs. I was joined on the set by my long time crush and many people's first schwing, Amy Jo Johnson AKA The Pink Ranger. If you don't know who she is that is pretty sad. Move over, Nick Jonas - FIRST FLAMES NEVER DIE!!!!

She will be coming along for a few shows while we (FUCKED UP) are out with Kurt Vile
in a couple weeks. Yes, we bonded THAT MUCH. Also, she is a HUGE FAN.

PITCHFORK reviewed half of a Darlings record thats coming out soon.
I'm not familiar (or ever that excited) with most of the bands they write about and I never really thought I'd see MD on Pitchfork... But I always like it when someone supports that band. Darlings have an interesting mix of pyschos involved and I dig being a part of it.

While I was browsing, I happened to click on a track of a band I've never heard before with a pretty appealing name, BEACH HOUSE:
Why would someone think ripping off the first coldplay album is ok ALREADY ?
Am I Crazy?

yo, marvelous darlings are the shit and if you don't think so you probably only like ketchup on your hamburgers and think "seafood is gross". pussys!

2 new songs posted. here!

p.s the above design with the lipstick (apparently a NY DOLLS rip off?) was screened for limited covers of the P TRASH records 7". We never approved this and I think it's so ugly that when I got the limited records I threw them all into the DON RIVER.
Which was actually a mistake in retrospect because now this monstrosity is even more rare! Whateves tho. Thought it was worth mentioning.
