nothing involving cheetos can ever be pointless.

racy cheetos?

i was just on CJAM talking about the new album and general johnny things. it was a little last-minute, so i couldn’t warn y’all beforehand, but you can check it out here if you like. i’m about fifteen minutes or so in, though i think the interview with the drummer from fiftywatthead is well worth listening to as well.

my brain was a little soggy, but i think it’s safe to say i was full of scintillating information and dirty jokes. only not. thanks to adam for chatting with me on the phone. that’s the first time i’ve ever done a radio interview via telephone. dig the lo-fi lisp of imposition.

i’ve always been a sucker for that squashed telephone sound, and used it as a vocal effect in the old days once or twice — most notably on “ebeneezer scrooge” on DON’T TALK LIKE A BABY ten years ago. i need to pull that sound out again one of these days.

the CJAM MP3 archives seem to be down at the moment, so if the above link doesn’t work, and/or if you just want to hear my bit, you can do so right here:

CJAM NIMBY snippet from August 25, 2009

i’ve gone through at least 130 copies of the new CD already, in less than two weeks. that’s insane. i’m already close to needing more booklets/inserts/jewel cases. AN ABSENCE OF SWAY and IF I HAD A QUARTER… are pretty close to being “out of print”, because i’m more or less out of inserts for them. i guess those subliminal messages i planted in the songs have really kicked in.

on a random note, i think i need to put together a song called “the rise and fall of steven seagal”. it’ll be at once uplifting and heartbreaking. it will also be a psychobilly polka.


  1. whoa! thanks a lot for the heads-up. i might have to check that out. it’s even small enough that i can bypass the normal “i don’t have room for it” excuse to try to quell the desire to buy more gear/instruments…
