Love Poem

Dear Fan of Our Derelict Music:

We are writing to inquire as to the possibility of you helping us with our new record, currently titled "Messy, Isn't It?" and slated for release sometime this decade. We are nearing the completion of the project (and, my, what a "project" it has been!) and stand at an impasse that you may, hopefully, be able to assist us with. The title of the record, as you probably are aware of, is lifted from the suicide note of a man named Richard Bruatigan. In an effort to both pay homage to this man and to increase the aural diversity of our little recording, we are going to include a reading of his poem "Love Poem" on our record. This, oddly enough, is where you come in!

We are asking you all to record yourselves reading this poem. After you record yourself reading this poem, save the file in .wav, .aiff, .mp3, or .mp4 format. After you have saved the file, send us the file at: so that we will be able to hear it! Remember to include your (real) name somewhere in the email so that we can accurately thank you in our luxurious liner notes. Next, sit back and wait for the record to come out so you can hear your beautiful voice!

If you would like to help, I'm sure we'll "get you back" in some fancy way.

Here is the poem, for those of you brave enough to undertake such tasks:

Love Poem
By Richard Brautigan

It's so nice
to wake up in the morning
all alone
and not have to tell somebody
you love them
when you don't love them
any more.

Here is a link to a pretty typewritten version that's been scanned into the internet.

By the way! Hurry! We need these things by this Friday or Saturday SUNDAY at the latest! Sometimes beggars can be demanders!

Thank you.

Coathangers and Baby Brains

A new shirt featuring coathangers and baby brains is available over at the Vitriol site. The witticisms are free of charge! Pick that up to ensure your DANGERS shirt collection is complete and up to date! Allow up to but sometimes fewer than four to six extremely boring and ill-used weeks for delivery.

In other news, we got the band together today to practice. It went well. Show in Long Beach at the Hickey Underworld is probable in mid-September. Beware.

We are trying to get an Australian tour together. Help us out.

Messy, Isn't It? is going to be finished up by the first week of September. We'll post most of it on here.

New favorite website is The Rumpus,

Saved By The Buoyancy of Citrus

Saved By The Buoyancy of Citrus

I'm in the red.
I've got the blues.
I'm token black, an early graying fool.

I need an orange.
I need a lime.
I need a last name that don't feel like such a crime.

I feel sixteen, or I feel sixty.
I feel nine to five.

So sick of rent checks, so sick of life-vests.
So sick of five foot nine.

Once was lost but now am drowned.

More to come very soon.
Peep those new shows on the right.
Also, this man has a point!
