"The Golden Ball" - Goon Moon

"Who are you?"
“I am the enchanting wizard of rhythm.”
“Why did you come here?”
“I came here to tell you about the rhythms of the universe.”

Anonymous asked: 3 favorite bands?

1. Ween. Hands down my favorite band of all time.

2. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

3. Mike Patton- but like, not just his solo stuff. The entire career of Mike Patton. Trying to pick a favorite between his bands (Mr. Bungle. Faith No More, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Peeping Tom, etc.) would be like trying to pick a favorite child. I can’t do it.

Thanks dude! I never get asked questions.

—Songs So Sad (Speaker For The Dead Cover)

homelikenoplaceisthere:

We as a band have been extremely lucky to have certain friends in our lives that have helped us progress and challenge us as a band. One of these great people is Greg McKillop. We met Greg early on in our band stuff as he was playing bass in a local band of a similar genre. He kind of fell off our radar for a bit until we played with his solo project, Speaker For The Dead, at a benefit show for homeless youth in Worcester. I remember having to leave early since we were under 21 and felt like a butt. But, he kept booking us at the Raven which was a dive-y Edgar Allen Poe themed bar. It’s kind of all blurry when this all happened. But I feel like we were playing there every other week. Sometimes to nobody, sometimes to Sam’s family, sometimes to a full house. Greg also took us on our first real tour as a band and introduced me to people that we are lucky to still be friends with today.

Greg was a person who taught me and a billion other people in that world of Worcester’s music scene some important stuff. Namely, how to not be cool. Greg is one of the least cool people I have ever met (maybe moreso a few years ago). But he hated cool. Everything that was cool he actively worked on how to destroy and subvert it and create something genuine, something inclusive, and something fun. Straight up Greg was the most punk anti-punk i had ever met. 

Speaker For The Dead has now slightly expanded from the solo acoustic/slam poetry style we played with years ago into a sometimes 40-piece queer and allied cabaret-folk-punk-orchestra. They are just about to leave for tour to support their new album The Ballad of The Undercrust. Here is the event for that tour so you can all see them where they shine their brightest, in a live show.

Our friend Jon Brien decided to help Greg raise money to press records of the album by putting together a tribute album made up of poems and songs new and old from SFTD albums. We got to cover our favorite Speaker For The Dead song Songs So Sad for it and it’s kind of a pop-country interpretation of it. You can and should buy it at name your own price. Make sure to check out their new record and support a band who really supported a lot of great artists and built up scenes in Worcester/Portland and in all his travels.

Wait… Hillary Clinton is the “real people” front runner and she’s only tied with Boba Fett?

I can see the debate now…

Boba Fett: “Sure I may have had Han Solo frozen in carbonite, but Hillary froze… BENGHAZI.”
