Don't let that jerkoff dog get the last laugh
We’re playing this on Saturday. It starts at noon and goes until at least 11 p.m.
There will be some great bands there, like our friends in Swimclub.
There will also be some bands there names so good that I wish I was in them, like Hours of Cats Arms.
While in NYC, I’m going to buy some of this.
We’re going to play everything on our soon-to-be-released EP, as well as some other songs. Covers will happen.
Everything is going to AIDS research in Williamsburg, so you should come out and be easy with money.
Not all of our songs are about dolphins. I promise.
We got our master CD in the mail yesterday. Not sure when it’s going to come out, but we will have physical and digital copies. There will be extensive liner notes to accompany physical copy, including lyrics (both as originally written and as performed, because I’m bad at remembering), song explanations, oral history of the band, top 10 lists, two comprehensive lists of thanks yous and, of course, the REAL version of picture above as designed by Nick.
In the mean time, here’s a bonus track in anticipation of the full EP release.
When we started this band, we had one original song and about four Mountain Goats covers. While we don’t play “No Children” or “The Mess Inside” as much as we used to, we’ve been closing our shows with “The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton” since jump street. If you aren’t familiar with the Mountain Goats and you like the song, you really need to check them out because this doesn’t do them much justice.
Regardless, help yourself to this track we did in the Failure Ballad sessions for MOTHERLOVIN’ free.
Brooklyn this weekend. EP coming soon. New songs being written. I’m moving back to Philly. Things are looking up.

Joe Pelone: History's Greatest Lover?
Nick and I practiced for our show in Brooklyn this past Sunday. Joe wasn’t there because he doesn’t love us anymore.
We worked on older songs that I had written later in 2010 / early 2011. A couple of them sounded pretty good. I think people will really like “The Best Punk Band in the World.” I think, with a little work “RPGs” will be a great song, kind of a different look for us. We’ve got one called “Cover Bands” that Nick does some great backing vocals for.
More importantly, Nick and I wrote a song together called … well, I forget what we called it, but I named it “Straight Edge Irony” on my iTunes. It’s a silly song, but I like it a lot. Some of my favorite Science Club tunes come from when we write songs together (“Funky C,” “Go, Boldly”). Feels good to do that again.
Look for this on a fictional 7″ single bundled with “The Mighty Us” and “Scrapbook.”
