TAN Faster Through the Miracle of Radiation!

In honor of the release of their latest record 'Justamustache" on the Frenchy Kicksy record label, we're posting out original two-minute record rview treatment of the so-called 'new" Thurderbirds are Now jams.
See, we're not playing them on the show tonite cuz we figure if you haven't been paying attention to the last, oh, six weeks when we've been shamelessly playing tracks off this record, you just don't get to hear it on the consumer-approved date. Yeah! We're fuckin' radical!!! Check us out Trotsky!! How you like us now Jerzy Bulowski!? Doctor Marten's boots up yer arse!

Anyhoo, here's Sassy's review. Wolf's to folo shortly.
Love it. and Love, comma, us.
Sasquatch and Le Wolf

Thunderbirds Are Now, Justamustache, French Kiss REcords
Review date, sometime in the near past:


If I may, I would like to respond to the preceding messages brought to us by Thunderbirds are Now in a three-fold manner:

Firstly: Oh, my gawd, Becky. Did you see the lead singer-uh?! He’ssss sssoooou cyoott. I mean, it’s pretty artsy…but what-ever-uh…the hair and the jumping and the –heavy breathing here.

Secondly: You know, I’m a firm believer in at least using the words angular at least once in conversation every day, just so that it doesn’t become some kind of hary old rock-crit cliché like, oh, say, “oblique lyrics” or “DIY production values” or “a wash of__insert your stringed instrument here.”
And it’s bands like Thunderbirds are Now that help that. Except, in their case, it’s more like “punctured” instead of “angular where the metaphor is a straight line and the guitar sounds in question are meant ot interrupt the straight line at an acute angle, hence, angular. TAN are more like um, some other metaphor or something.
It’s like a scavenger hunt: Angular, spazzy (or a variation threof0, hyper-kinetic, ADD-addled, hell, anything-addled. Let’s all play.

Thirdly: You know, Dr. Landy says I should smile more and not talk so much, but sometimes I just wanna kiloljll;l;kjd;lkj3209u4305987.!!!"

This is wayy off topic, but have you guys heard Blue Orchid? The song is a huge disappointment. What happened to the Stripes I know and love?

it's not waayyy offfff topppic at alll.
topics float like, well, like unfinished metaphors.
the stripes you know and love never existed and may never exist again unless they do. sure that's cryptic, but it's true. they're a slippery stylistic pair. personally, i dig the falsetto and guitar sound on the new jam, but there's something just a bit outside in the words of ernie harwell.

What the hell? You didn't have to get all weird on me. Email me at and explain that comment if you don't mind. I get what you are implying, but maybe you could elaborate more through email where no one else can see. ;) Oh and the song has grown on me. I've heard interesting things about this new album. It will be quite a shock to all of us fans, but in a good way I hope.

re: podcasting
good question. we're going ot direct that to our minister of technology and come up with a reasoned plan for said activities.
it seems like a good idea, though. after all, aren't we all hatched from pods?

Podcasting seems like a nice idea.
