[In which we discover that ‘Miles’ is Latin for Liar.]
I do my best to disappoint, and, more often than not, succeed admirably. Whether it be my overwhelmingly long stay in college or my disheartening reading WPM, I’m the king of letting everyone down. But, my darlings, nothing haunts me more than promising updates and failing to deliver.
Because, not only am I lying, but lying on the internet. That’s like vomiting on the truth and then forcing the truth to eat it.
So, here is the first in what will become a bi-daily cycle of updates, and it’s filled with goodies.
Chaperone will be performing on the Magic Hat Main Stage at the Milwaukee Ave. Arts Fest on July 24th. It’ll be our first performance in an awful long time, and not only will I bite every other member of the group, there will be new songs, all of which feature a vocal and bells breakdown. Just like a real band!
Our first EP as a full, semi-cohesive unit, “Cripple King”, is mastered, and it sounds, dare I say, like Phyllis Diller’s laugh: a little rough, a little alarming, but full of life, vitality and humor (or, for you Anglophiles and Ancient Greeks, humour.) The Boy has completed the cover art, and it will all be fit to be pressed soon. Which leads to…
We’ll be playing a two-day CD release extravaganza in the two cities that have always been home to us ragamuffins. The first will be on the 17th at Franks Power Plant in Milwaukee. The second will be in Chicago, though the details are still being starch pressed.
The new Wavves album is extraordinary.
