Truly Important Shameless Self Promotion

By LK | October 9, 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 spirited racist!!!  We’re neither of those things!!!

So go to AOL/Spinner on Tuesday and hit us.  Like our parents did!

    I truly don’t understand this world of mp3-only releases. Now an mp3 single? Still waitin’ for that CD I can buy.

    In the meantime, I really do like the Press 1 song and video so much so that I’ve linked the YouTube clip to a forum I frequent. It’s in my signature there. I’ve noticed the hits going up every time I make a new post. Pretty cool.

    hiya. thanks for your support. the raw truth is that the drawbacks of the MP3 format are more than made up by by the ability of a band, including this one, to get its music out to people who aren’t as aware of the quality difference as you are.
    it also avoids having to find the cash or company, which inevitably means making compromises, to get the music out there.
    hope you can bear with it until we get the means and/or the opportunity to release on CD, which i also look forward to. LK

    You can press CD’s yourself then mail ‘em out to folks. Take payments via PayPal. No evil record companies involved.

    You’ve already made compromises with song titles…

    hey tw!
    thanks for the input…

    the necessity of having something “hard” in one’s hand has been mulled over for centuries. jungian and neo freudian’s alike consider it an elemantal drive which begins in the 2nd trimester, and carrys on throughout the lifespan until either, 1. the subject develops and grows sequencially into his/her maturation, or 2. the subject buys a sniper rifle and takes his/her angst out in the long line at McDonalds.

    as my pal and partner (non sexual) explained, we are in need of an evil record company, and so for us to press, create artwork for a cover, manufacture, and ship prior to knowing if this thing has “legs” is unreasonable, especially given the remarkable power of the internet. the world has changed, my friend.

    now, as for the song titles: please let me/us know which song title(s) have been raped, and i/we will provide you with an appropriate list of alternatives.

    once again, ty for your support and keep up the noodling… we LOVE IT!

    Hey JP. I totally understand getting copies out there via mp3 to the zombie masses. I was reminded yet again of this great ‘disc’ when I had to press 2, yes freaking 2 for English on the phone the other day. My bags are already packed if grandpa wins.

    Brainburger and Amerika came out on cdr. That’s still better than mp3.

    The song title changes were already mentioned by LK for iTunes.

    yo, tw. please re-read my song titles post, the relevant part of which i copied and pasted beneath this reply for your convenience). i said someone at iTunes screwed up the song titles. we never said we changed them as some sort of compromise. and due to our vigilance, Apple has corrected their mistake. present the case correctly, and every once in a while you can move the machine.
    in my experience, it’s not a great idea to be so eager to make a point that your evidence is sloppy.
    also, given the other stuff all of us are dealing with in the world today, i myself would give the MP3 vs. CD format war a rest.
    but that’s just me.
    hope you enjoy a little friendly verbal sparring. be well. see below.

    the relevant section on song titles:

    …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”…

    LK, I did re-read your post (before posting) you never said anything about Apple correcting the titles until now.

    After being glued to the tee-vee watching CNBC all week (more Econo-fun to come next week) this is a welcome stress relief for me.

    I don’t visit iTunes. I don’t pay for crappy mp3’s. I would gladly pay you Tuesday you for a CD today but I can wait. :-)

    right, but i never said we made any compromises, just that they screwed up. if you dare, send your address to and we’ll burn you a full fidelity CD (not an audio CD that used MP3 as a source) and get it out to you.
    appreciate the dogged persistence. hope your nest egg is intact.

    That’s very kind LK. Thanks.

    Eggs and nest are still doing fine…for now. Knock on plastic.
