too much PENI ON THE WALLS OF heartbroken “dressing” rooms= i.e. i mean we’re all just trying to live again but MR>ADAM>FUCKING>GOPNIK is on our KANADIAN PUBLIC RADIO saying glib shit about winter and what we’re all supposed to believe in…

by efrim.


long time gone from this outpost= heartfelt ‘pologies!
  life got a little hectic in the for-real NOW way, and damn but writing on this internet of yours is one of those soft commitments that falls by the wayside when real life comes a-callin’ sometimes.

in the meantime, we started playing again.  east coast amerikkkan AUTUMN (when the birds stop singing, all holding their breaths and waiting for the cold to fall.)  just a small handful of, just to make sure we still could (AND WE COULD!) (EVEN W/SWEET TODDLER EZRA TOW!)

and so now we’re full time again= tour dates on the
tourdate page.  AND 3 NEW SONGS.  we’re rekording this weekend, and there’ll be two 7-inches in our royal carriage when we grace thine shores come february.

also AND but= the world sure has turned a bunch since the last time we muttered here.  #OWS hurrah!  people fighting the good fight and winning! and youtubes of underpaid, over-equipped police-stormtroopers that make good liberals gasp and question their fuzzy kingdoms, egads! it’s all super-inspiring to this dumb heart- people are good.  no-god-but-the-one-god-there-is-no-god-but-each-other, et cetera and goddamn and AMEN

dearest friend mr. jem cohen made these forthwith and they are lovely, please watch please=


more later,

F.T.G.F. xoxoxox

    Thank you! I sure hope those 7 inches are made available online, since, unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to catch you guys this time around. I was right up front for your performance at ATP last month, and I will definitely confirm that YES! You’ve still got it! Hope to see you around again soon. In the mean time, be well.

    Although it’s fairly out of the way, a New Zealand (or Australian) audience would be
    very grateful to have you.
