SPEEDY CURSE UPDATE
I thought of more things that could further explain the dark spell that has been cast over Mt Speedy (continuing from our previous post)...

A couple months ago, we somehow ended up on this Lilys tribute comp called And I Forgot A Long Time Ago How You Feel (available for free right over here) with a bunch of bands who do the "dreamy dreamtime" sound way better than we do. One of these outstanding bands was Pet Milk from Philadelphia. Call me crazy, but is it a coincidence that they just happened to announce their breakup only 3 days after appearing on a comp with us? Not likely. Our curse is contagious. We're just bringing everyone down. Huge downers.

We also embark on summer tour tomorrow, which reminds me of the horrifying incident on the first night of last summer's tour (also in Philadelphia) when some dude ended up laying on the ground unconscious in a pool of his own blood. That was our mistake... We showed up. Bad things happened.

Not to mention Thurston Moore's guitar getting snatched after we played with him in Philadelphia a few months later. Perhaps our curse is stronger in the land of brotherly love? And was Mannequin really filmed at Woolworths?

TOUR STUFF
We have new t-shirts although we forgot to take pictures of them.... You can kinda see them in these pics stolen from Brooklyn Vegan. (It's the one with the big red circle on it):


We also have a new tour comp CDR (free while supplies last for anyone who buys something, or free for anyone who reads this and asks us about it at any of our summer shows) with demos and alternate versions of Speedy songs, plus songs from some of the other bands we're in (like Bony Pones, Banjo Assault, Rinong, Dead Wives, Big Void, Lowt Ide, notes from underground and more.)

Here's our "July/Aug 2013 CDR" artwork (with tracklisting):

We also have a large new LP for sale including 10 of the jams we recorded a few months ago, decorated with lots of pretty colors n stuff.

Are y'all playing another hometown show at the end of tour? Couldn't go to the Great Scott show because I was too lame to sneak into a 21+ show and now I want that CDr.
