Hey! So, heres WHATH UP!
New Marvelous Darlings 7" has just dropped on Plastic Idol (Notice thats Mario's 3rd release from one of my things.. Dude knows whath up, huh?). It's called "I'll Stand By Her". When I leaked the mp3 a couple months ago Pitchfork posted it and called it "the best punk song of all time" or something like that, and everyone thinks all this stuff sounds "westerbergian" or "westerbergesque" even though I only really started like The Replacements like last year, and I really kind of only like the Tim record and that song "Androgynous". Anyways - This record is now out, and you can pick it up HERE. The cover of the record is a dude in drag lying on his bed with a birthday cake with condom balloons on his wall and a flag that if you look closely says "Toronto". This image was found at the Toronto Reference Library.
Also tomorrow is the opening of Parts N Labour. A new Queen West venue/cool dude eatery with a lot of potential. Pretty psyched for it. The Bitters will be headlining opening night of both resturant and venue TOMORROW NIGHT (friday!). Gonna pop off. Hopefully my reservations don't fall through so I can eat slow cooked pigs face torriene or whatever it's called. Everyone is going to get really drunk, and lots of fat people are going to get really sweaty - hopefully from the show and the food! Yum.
EVENT POSTED HERE.
Here's a couple local Bitters articles that came out today to pump up the town for the gig.
#1 has some audio clips at the bottom. The 2nd one I talk about writing songs for pop artists and blatently talk shit about them. I'd like to add that I really enjoy doing that cheesy stuff, and if someone else out there is looking to make me a bunch of money for writing songs for them and then have me go shit talk them in NOW, I'm totally up for it. JK!! It's all in good fun!! I just hate happy happy friendly borderline fake interviews where people are afraid to speak their mind. I however don't think I'm articulate enough to pull off what I'm trying to do and I just end up sound like a huge jerk... Oh well. Could be worse (actually this is kinda like Fucked Ups Canadian tour!! :). I don't want to talk shit on Hedley anymore cuz that dude put the guy from Len in the hospital after hitting him with a lava lamp or something at the Bovine. OUCH! Also my song only made it to the album and wasn't a single and i directly ripped it off The Eagles (ITS SICK!!!) so it only paid my rent for like a month as opposed to the rest of my life like if Fucked Up actually wrote this.
Here's a fun game: Count how many times Aerin and I say "LIKE" in the first audio clip. First person to get it wins a prize!!
Thats all for now. Another post to prove that I am a huge asshole completed! Thanks for reading, not sure why you do ;)
p.s Bee's and Donkeys are the new trendy things. Get down with them. Don't miss this train.
