Truly Important Shameless Self Promotion

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

If our publicist can be trusted, this coming Tuesday (October 14th) our first single, “Press 1 For English” is going to be the AOL/Spinner MP3 of the day.
We hear that means 2 million hits, minimum.  That’s more than Pete Rose and Ty Cobb combined!!! And Rose was a compulsive gambler and Cobb was a mean [...]

Passports and Prayers

passports-and-prayers

The records’s on iTunes.  The records’s on iTunes.  The records’s on iTunes.  The records’s on iTunes.
I am one crackerjack marketer.
And now, to get under Palumbo’s skin (see “I’ve Been Provoked”):
McCain has now squandered the good will that has, up until now, been extended to him by members of both parties in deference to the [...]

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

URB.com recently called Made In China “the sound of … disillusionment channeled into humorous social commentary.” Make sure you vote for Made In China on URB’s “Next 1000.”

note:  the album is out on iTunes.  buy it and write a great review.  thank you.

More On the Ethical DNA, and Getting the Word Out

Saturday, September 6th, 2008
more-on-the-ethical-dna-and-getting-the-word-out

Yes, I know, adopted son.  But the ethical DNA is passed down through the environment of the household.
And I still haven’t heard anyone connect the bank failure announced last night, a bank where McC’s son was a former board member, with the S & L crisis of the ’80’s in which McC himself was one of [...]

ALBUM’S OUT….

albums-out

on iTunes.
of course, the one evangelical neocon working for Apple took the title “Spit In God’s Face” and shortened it to “Spit”, and took the title “Big Howdy From Iraq” and shortened that one to “Big Howdy”. and we’re listed as EXPLICIT even though there’s only one song with the word “shit” in [...]

Ticket’s Upside Down?

It would have provided a degree of change [...]

mic-as-acronymn-for-made-in-china

from time to time you’ll see MIC which is nothing but a way of saving a few keystrokes.   yeah, i know you would have intuited that immediately but in a country that not only elected, but re-elected Dubya, it’s better to assume nothing.  LK
