I found this record the other day at the thrift store. It looks like it should be the coolest record ever. It has a Service Records feel to it, and the label that put this out is called Passport Records. I guess I was thinking I found an early form of the Embassy from 1980 But it's like a bad rendition of the Talking Heads. Well, at least I have a new piece of art to hang up on my wall.

My band, Horse Shoes played at the Pop Mayhem festival in Gainesville Fl last week. It was a fun show because it was the first time I've had an opportunity to see Surfer Blood live. I've been listening (like a crazy person) to their myspace page for months now. They are amazing. I'm going to see as many of their New York City shows as I can. Don't let it slip away:

I normally hate the idea of covering songs, and I've never even considered it until now. This is just my favorite song in the world. I've never identified with a song more than this. After listening to it twenty times a day for the past few months I think I just came to the conclusion that I couldn't get it out of my system any other way. And the song had such a limited release i felt like it was a real shame that more people hadn't heard it. I don't know that we did it justice, and we certainly weren't trying to make it better or different, maybe we we were just being selfish, but I'm glad of it and I hope you enjoy, or relate to it as well.
