"First" Listen






**HEY JUST REAL QUICK: The Explore Music thing at Harbourfront is full up now, so don't RSVP anymore thanks! You can watch it on the internet I think.***


Hey you can stream DCTL on NPR right now. That's a cool radio station in the USA if you are not from there and don't know. You probably know. It's right HERE. We all know that if you are reading this blog you've already heard the entire record already and have made your judgements known and are already thinking about what hilarious boilerplate yr gonna leave about in the comment section (unless you are a spammer) or on vivalavinyl to make us all feel bad about our place in the world. Or something. What I'm saying is that it probably won't be your "first" listen to the record if you click thru to the NPR site. (Because you illegally downloaded it)

Anyhow, my point was the NPR article also has some insight about the conception of the record and the story that you can follow along with while you are listening to the record (on the website...for 80 minutes). If that isn't enough, remember you can actually hear us talk about these same songs live in person next Tuesday at Harbourfront in Toronto (facebook invite right HERE.). Honestly though if you are gonna come to that I might step on the rsvp-ing because space is limited and there will be free chips and beer I think, so no doubt half the people there are gonna come for just that anyways. Which kind of gives me a good idea - what if our shows for this summer were just the 6 of us sitting in chairs talking about the songs, rather than actually playing them? We'd be like the punk James Taylor, except with no music AT ALL, just stories about the songs (and there is no way we'd play a benefit for myspace, even if it was in a movie). That would be fun right? Everyone could still mosh and do whatever, which would kind of make all that cooler anyhow, because it would be really surreal and fun to just have this room full of sweaty punks moshing along to us reciting lyrics about love and discussion calmly how many bus trips we had to take to New York to get this thing done. Damian would wade into the crowd with a long mic as he does, but instead of singing, he would just be gently answering questions, in your face. Jonah would obviously have his shirt off and be wearing those gross shorts he wears to play the drums, but there would be no sweat and no drum set, just consideration of Thatcherite Britain and the decline of the Garden City movement. Anyhow, think about it.

And then of course there will be our other June 7th event that we don't have full details on yet.

Did I mention there are some new pre-order opportunities for DCTL up now?

Interpunk is doing this thing where the first 100 people to order the CD get an autographed booklet. Get that HERE.

Same deal for Newbury Comics, right HERE.

I was like "WTF?" at first,then went to "okaay..",I'm sure that "uhu" and after a few listens more "ow yeah!!!" will follow.
I immediately liked Hidden World and the first half of Epics in minutes,but this record I need to grow into.
But those are the records that stay the longest in my stereo anayway,so I guess it's a good thing.
The female vocals were quite the suprise will Musterd Gas be singing them live ?

Anyway see you on Pukkelpoop and don't forget to play some of the older stuff.

It might work, if you interspersed the answers with short bursts of tracks like 'Police' and 'Generation', to give it a promo kind of vibe and for the benefit of people with short attention spans.

Think I'll just buy the cd when it comes out. I like the idea of a talking gig, if there is a platform for those of us who insist on stagediving.

The picture of Fred Armisen was taken at Generation Records in NYC on Record Store Day. Tom Sharpling and i convinced him to pick it up after he inquired about Tom's copy of David Comes To Life. I recommended he pick up Chemcom, but I guess it was out of stock.

I got my copy today. It's awesome. But I can't decide which side of the poster to hang up. You should send out two or those suckers so idiots don't have to make decisions on their own. Idiots like me.

Stick it to a window and simply go outside when you want to see the other side.
