FIRING SQUAD 7" AVAILABLE NOW
Hello Y'all. My next 7" as Young Guv is called "Firing Squad". It's about murdering religious extremists. No cute story. No explanation. It's just about that. That's it. Good enough? The song clocks in at exactly 4:20. How do you like that, potheads ?
It will be available through my marvelous webstore very soon (like next week latest), but for now please pick it up at Plastic Idol (they released it!!). This is the 4th guv/darlings related record on this cool little label, and by now I am such good friends with Mario that he sends me vintage bottles of wine in the mail from the beautiful vineyards of San Diego. He also sends me burritos. This is the reason I keep giving him the best records, and songs. Actually the real reason is because he is nice, the art always looks good, his records are good quality.. and.. Well he just has really good timing I guess. He goes like "hey ben, think im ready for another release.. what you got?" and whenever he does that i seem to be putting the final touches on something bomb.
There you go. Listen to the A side below. The B side is 25 with a bullet, acoustic style. It's only the 2nd version of this song (even tho Mario says theres 3 versions, ok theres kind of a diff version on the mixtape but that doesn't count). Who cares!
Also my talented friend Marlena came over one day and did 2 hours of Linda Blair type make up on me for this (you can see it clearer on the back image of the record.. but you can order the record to view THAT). Then Danielle came over and took the photo and screamed when I opened the door. Or maybe she laughed. Or both. She put this stuff on my skin that made it bubble out and looks very real. She works on movies, and I'd like to thank her very much for her time and wish her all the best in her film career! Maybe Goosebumps will come back on TV and hire you, Marlena..... And me.
