Hey, so it turns out there's this really big important hockey game happening at the same time as our show tommorow. We just wanted everyone to know that a) There will be tv's at the Opera House and b) there will also be big screens at the Blue Moon right next door showing the game. We're gonna push our set a bit later so that we don't really clash with the game. Game starts at 930, we should go on close to midnight. We also cancelled practice today so I could watched Fenercahce-Lille (just kidding) so we know what it's like.

So just to recap:
1) We are playing at the Opera House tommorow with Kurt Vile and D'urbervilles and Give
2) You will be able to watch the hockey game
3) You can still order the Davids Plan 7" from insound and get it from us on Friday
4) We are playing in Tampa next week
5) We're playing a few shows at SXSW right after that
6) im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out is gonna be dj-ing the after party tommorow at Blue Moon
7) Also some bands are playing

Hey, we are playing another ATP festival (aka Best Festival Ever), this time somewhere in upstate New York. Chavez is trying to put together a sick party in the Hamptons the next day, so stay tuned for that. Our day of the fest is apparently being curated by Jim Jarmush, so check that out too. I think he's like Dean and Randy's friend or something?
I'm also pleased to announce that during this show we'll be playing our Police 7", in it's entirety. Hope to see you there!

Stockton, California arrived from on "Looking For Gold: February 2009" by searching for im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out.



Canberra, Australian Capital Territory arrived from on "Looking For Gold" by searching for im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out.

East Elmhurst, New York arrived from on "Looking For Gold" by searching for im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out.

NICE TRY DUDES. Why don't you just try to make "im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out" a trending topic over on twitter and really blow the lid off this whole feedjit tracker business? It'll be this secret long-form coded buzzword that refers to some hipster music topic (but won't have anything to do with really weird french techno at all), so when you start seeing people post RT @im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out, not only will it be hilarious, because you and I will know that the meaning of that phrase will be totally lost on the person who posted it, because it's not about looking for really weird french techno songs that just came out at all, and also because such a long and literal sentence is so devoid of any kind of web-know-how, as if the person posting the tweet thought somehow that they were actually tweeting directly to another person in real time, whereby the purpose of their post (and now our meme) was to in fact put such a literal question out into the web-ether, with the real expectation that phrasing their simple question in such an honest and clueless way, utterly out of context, and almost heartbreaking in it's simple yet comprehensive error, like two long lost siblings talking to each other across a table at a cafe, not clueing in to that very potent and elusive fact, simply because they weren't asking the right questions, or asking them in the right way, or one of them spoke Algerian or something, all the while so tantalizingly close to the truth, yet so inevitably, irrevocably far away, or like what probably literally happened in this particular case, that some poor lonely soul in Stocktown California for whatever reason was awake at close to midnight, probably so alone that any number of these potential hypotheses could hold water: they were looking for that perfect minor-keyed french-touch house song, upbeat enough to keep them awake to search for more lonely stuff on the internet, but sad sounding enough, in that classic french house way ("Lady [Hear me Tonight] by Modjo comes immediately to mind, a perfect example of the happy/sad longing sounding upbeat music that made french house music what it was), to kind of perfectly encapsulate how they were feeling: that this person searching was in fact someones parents, and heroically ventured into a medium they clearly know nothing about or how to use properly, in order to connect somehow with a wayward child, who's principle interest may have consisted of in some capacity really weird french techno, they comically yet painfully attempted the search we're investigating right now; that the person conducting this search was just drunk/high/dumb/from another country/has a rare psychological disease that renders them without the requisite understanding of tense needed to navigate through a search tool that is not a librarian or a telephone; that in fact this person was in fact a highly literate user of the internet, but thought somehow they were using a voice-search device that probably most of us don't even understand, except that they forgot to turn it on before making this search; and so on and so forth, but because passing off that kind of obtuse phrase as any kind of meme at all is just such a ridiculous notion. Also because it's probably long enough to crash the entire Twitter server.

Of course, it could be just that I'm the n00b and that "im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out" already is a meme, which accounts for the three seperate searchings for it on google within the same 20 minutes of me monitoring the searches, and that it's so advanced and burrowed into the cool hidden parts of the internet that most people don't even know about, and by the time I wake up tommorow "im lookin for this really weird french techno song that just came out" is already going to be the name of a Nike sneaker, and "im looking for this really weird french techno songg that justt came outt" will be the name of this amazing band from Williamsburg, who are way better than "im lookin for this really weird Belgian techno song that just came out" because it was cool when there was just one band with that style of name, but after everyone sort of started using the "im lookin for this really weird rench techno song that just came out" aesthetic template, it just kind of became played and not cool anymore, and that with this entire post I've just made a huge fool out of myself in more ways than one.

Bountiful, Utah arrived from on "Looking For Gold" by searching for cool looking websites.
-THIS IS NOT HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. What kind of websites do you think are gonna pop up, that index themselves as "COOL LOOKING WEBSITE"? Well, lets find out:
This one, about some idiot named Chris
Time Magazines 2005 list of "50 Cool Websites"
Looking for a New, Cool website? Try create a snowflake!
And probably a bunch of other geocities era gems. Ever heard of GOOGLE BUZZ, n00b?

Record Store Day

Fucked Up's history with vinyl is long and celebrated (by us). Every time we do an interview, one of the first questions (still) is about the amount of 7"'s we've done (more than 35). We created the band out of a devotion to collecting rare punk aesthetics. Damian and Jonah still finesse their record collections like sports cars. While some of us have moved on to an extent (my Sunday so far: Chelsea vs Arsenal, Fiorentina vs Roma, Penguins vs Capitals, Canadiens vs Bruins, Saints vs Colts), Fucked Up and Records will probably also be somewhat entangled.

Record stores are a big part of why we are a band at all. When we were all younger kids, we used to treat the few cool record stores in Toronto like they were libraries. We all started our record collections at Full Blast, started to go to Rotate This when we could tolerate "non-punk" records being in the same room as Assuck 12"'s, all started working at Who's Emma a while later, and finally started going to Ric's Collectibles in the near-suburbs when we got too jaded to deal with the back rooms and behind the counter areas where the rare stuff had started to migrate. We started to make friends and enemies on the scene in attempts to score stuff. You'd call up your friend if you found something they were looking for, and you'd try to fill up your bag if there was stuff you knew someone who had punked you was looking for. On boxing day you'd see everyone you knew on the bus trying to get to every store in the city looking for stuff half off.

Record collecting is already so close to those dismal and dark solitary pleasures, the secret obsession you keep in your basement away from your visitors, if you ever get any. When that documentary "Vinyl" came out, we all got shocked a bit. Collection records can easily turn into a depressing lonely quest. It's record stores that help to legitimize it as somewhat of a social activity. Even though its kind of like having an AA meeting at a liqour store, at least in a store you're out an about, the owner is your friend, you'll maybe get a deal. Better that than going through the 19th page on your "kbd" ebay search at 4 in the morning on a Saturday.

Somehow we've never participated in Record Store Day before. We've done lots of instores all over the world, and have had to stop at stores to shop in probably every record store in the free world. This year we decided to do something special for RSD, because we think it's important. This April you'll be able to leave your house and go to a record store and get this cool record. We decided to use our 7" as a tribute to a bunch of cool stores in the US. Ten stores will each be featured with their own cover artwork, using pictures that they sent in to us. The 7" is just gonna be the two daytrotter songs from couple tracks, plus one that isn't on the CD ("Crooked Head"). Here are the 11 covers (there's a generic one), have fun trying to find them all:
