I first met 'Lil Bub last year when Mike Montgomery and I played an R. Ring show in Bloomington, Indiana.  The show was at Russian Recording Studio, Bub’s Dude’s place of business.  She is super sweet and she and her Dude are hell bent on bringing magic and love to Earth.  

The song is 'Shirtcrush', (Deal, Eddy, Chooch).  The players are Nick Eddy on guitar, Anna Butterss on bass and Ben Lumsdaine on drums.  I sang and played guitar.  Special guests are Chris Glass and Smoosh.

You can get the song here:  iTunes   Kelley’s Store

Today it’s just Fan Friday.
I got to meet a big fan today, Kelley Deal. And she got to meet a big fan of hers, me, Lil BUB.
Please don’t tell Geddy.


Lil Bub is incredible.

From an amorphous glop of orange-tinted goo, the Gods of science have birthed a batch of transparent discs. We are excited to announce that our debut 7” will be released by Misra Records on October 30, 2012. The ‘Orange’ side is ‘Fallout and Fire’, the ‘Banana’ side is ‘SEE’.
The graphic depiction of cross-pollinating fruit was drawn by our weird friend Ali Calis at Able Projects. 
To mark the occasion we will do a short tour leading up to the release (see dates below). In the meantime, you can listen to ‘Fallout and Fire’ on Pitchfork, where they were kind enough to debut it for us. 
If you can’t make it out to any of the shows but still want to hear what we sound like ‘live’ ( or what we sounded like on a hot day in July) our Daytrotter Session has just been released. 
Dates:
Oct 25 at Shake It Records, Cincinnati, OH 7pm FREE 
Oct 26 at the Firehouse, North Manchester, IN  
Oct 27 at the Shitty Barn/Knitty Barn, Spring Green, WI ( Bring your knit or crochet project! ) 
Oct 28 at the Abbey Pub, Chicago,IL with the Avengers! 
Oct 29 at Omega Music, Dayton,OH. 7pm FREE

The track will still be available digitally through Phratry Records.
