The of Montreal Tenth Anniversary Tribute Album [22 Jun 2007|03:11pm]

[ mood | excited ]

brought to you by: The Booty Patrol

July marks the tenth anniversary of the release of "Cherry Peel"
Let's celebrate with a covers tribute album!


1. Record an of Montreal song. Any song recorded and released by of Montreal will be OK. If it's a cover you recorded previously that's OK. Any level of faithfulness to the song is OK, and changing it up and making it your own is especially OK. Any experience level of playing, singing, or recording is OK - the best compilation will have a wide variety, so even if you have no software and don't know where to begin, we encourage you to still participate. If you need any advice or audio technical help, please don't hesitate to ask us, we would love to help! If you are technically disinclined, you can even just record your song onto a cassette and send it to us. We'll do anything we can to help you share the of Montreal love. If you wish to "call" a song, send us an email (thebootypatrol@gmail.com) to reserve it.

2. Save your song as either an mp3 (preferably high bitrate) or FLAC.
Email us the file or link. If it's small enough, just email it to us directly at thebootypatrol@gmail.com. If it's too big to email, upload it to a public host like sendspace and email us the link (or message us, instead of posting publicly). Again, if you need any help with this, please don't hesitate to ask, we would love to help you and would hate for something so easy to be a hindrance to sharing your song.

3. Get your song in by
July 27, 2007. The compilation will be available for free download shortly after, with cover art, and will also be mailed to the band as gifts.

So, to call a song or send a song to us, or if you have any questions at all, just email us at

"Angel Wings Will Carry Me" [07 Jan 2007|03:29am]

I was just wondering if anybody has a studio-recorded version of "Angel Wings Will Carry Me" by Scott Spillane. I have the version he performed live at Happy Happy Birthday To Me's Popfest 2005, but supposedly there is a studio version of it out there somewhere. If someone has it and could either upload it or send it to me (I have AIM and MSN), that would be wonderful. Thanks!

I do this too much. [30 Sep 2006|12:20pm]

I know I ask for guitar tabs all the time on here, but does anybody have a clue what chords are played on "Glue" by the Gerbils? Thanks.

Can you help set up an "Aeroplane" book reading in London? [21 Sep 2006|01:32pm]
I'll be in London, England on November 7, and would really like to find a place where I might read from my 33 1/3 book on "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," perhaps with a smattering of the "Lost in the Grooves" anthology, too. If you are in London and have any connections with a bookstore, gallery, club or other space where such a reading might be welcome, I'd appreciate hearing from you via email, amscray@gmail.com. It's possible that John Perry will also be available to read from his 33 1/3 Hendrix tome.

And stay tuned for news on a Paris reading for earlier that week, also featuring Miles Marshall Lewis with his 33 1/3 book on Sly Stone.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

AHAAH Tour Dates? [13 Sep 2006|09:35pm]

My friend Robby informed me that A Hawk and a Hacksaw had posted new U.S. tour dates, but now we can't seem to find them. If anybody has these dates (most especially any in or around Georgia) or knows where I can find them, please let me know. Thanks!

True crime, bubblegum, Neutral Milk Hotel on KXLU [10 Jul 2006|02:41pm]
My pal Nathan Marsak and I have been invited by Stella, whose Stray Pop has filled the L.A. airwaves with much wonder since 1980, to co-host her show this Friday night from midnight to three a.m.

We'll be talking about a whole bunch of things, including my book about "In the Aeroplane Over The Sea." Call in if you like! It streams over the internet, so you don't need to be in Los Angeles to hear the show.

Here is a question for you: if you were going to go on the radio and could only play a couple of songs by Neutral Milk Hotel, which ones would you play, and why?

What else will we be talking about? Obscure true crime stories (we blog and lead bus tours at http://www.1947project.com). The thrift store record discoveries we used to play on The Manny Chavez Show in the early 90s. Bubblegum Music. My little journal of unpopular culture, Scram. And more TBA.

We hope you can tune in!


What: Manny Chavez Show Reunion
When: Friday July 14/Saturday July 15 from midnight-3am
Where: KXLU 88.9 FM in L.A., streaming at http://www.kxlu.com
Request line: (310) 338-KXLU

Scott E. Spillane Live [26 Jun 2006|12:44pm]

For those who don't already know, www.southernshelter.com has posted live tracks performed by Scott E. Spillane (of The Gerbils and Neutral Milk Hotel) at the 40 Watt Club as part of the Happy Happy Birthday To Me's Popfest last summer. There are 6 tracks, including "Snorkel" from The Battle of Electricity and a beautiful song that starts out with a bit about peeing and pooing. Check it out.

Gerbils shows? [19 Jun 2006|05:28pm]

Hello, I am a huge fan of the Elephant 6 collective, but right now I have a question about one particular band: The Gerbils. My friend, who does a much better job of keeping up with E6 news than I do, told me that they play shows fairly frequently in Atlanta (not a long trip... I live in Rome, about 2 hours away) and that they have another album in the process of being recorded. I own and am an enormous fan of "Are You Sleepy?" and "The Battle of Electricity" and would appreciate any new information regarding The Gerbils. Thank you!

NMH interviews in the new issue of Scram [29 Apr 2006|07:38pm]
It is a banner day: I just got back from picking up Scram 22 from the printer, and I'm dizzy with ink fumes.

The new issue of the journal of unpopular culture includes a feature comprised of the interviews that informed the Ruston section of my 33 1/3 book about Neutral Millk Hotel. Robert Schneider, Laura Carter, Julian Koster and Scott Spillane all speak at greater length than they did in the book about E6 pre-Athens, and Robert shares some live photos from 1996 that I think have not been published previously.

Also in this issue: nature-loving folkie Vashti Bunyan, gay glam-punk Paul "Baby Bones" Vanase, private librarian and African literary scholar Kurt Thometz, Chicago bluesman Nick Gravenites and session piano cat Lincoln Mayorga, plus scads of reviews.

If interested in this or other Scrams, please visit http://www.scrammagazine.com for more info
