Holiday song, holiday music sale
So, ig from oh my god wrote a Christmas song and asked Abraham from Baby Teeth to sing on the track. We think it's an instant holiday classic that is destined to become a perennial. Please watch and share:
Kid can talk...
Two shows now (original trio!)...more on the way?
shows, albums, cannellini beans
oh my god & Mr. John Martyn
Billy, ig and previously unreleased oh my god
Billy is back on dry land after sailing since December. You will find him somewhere within the correctional program of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Ig has just posted his own website: www.johnnyiguana.com. It features lots of 2011 music Ig has recorded (including this) and is hosted by The Creature from the Black Lagoon in a keyboard tie. It contains, for a limited time, an unreleased song from oh my god's "The Night Undoes the Work of the Day" sessions called "Say Goodbye." Yes, this song IS utterly charming--thank you for asking, dearie! Please visit this beautiful-looking site, which goes way beyond shameless self-promotion. This is bordering on impudent. You'll find ig's international travel schedule, boastful discography, ghost-written autobiography and more! Leave him a mouthy note on his blog page.
We hope you have an easy, breezy, beautiful Cover Girl kind of a summer.
We'll return with more oh my god news before too long.
Stuff, and things
So, Billy is still on that boat with Captain USA. "Late March" return has turned into June or later.
While we figure out our next plot device, please help us out with this:
We have way too many CD copies of our vintage classics "The Action Album!" and "Interrogations & Confessions." So we have cut their price in half and are offering original copies for a pittance. Please go to our merch page and buy several for yourself and others (it's pretty much three copies for the price of a store-bought CD...if you can find a CD in a store, that is). This is a web-only deal and will only last 'til we climb into Doris II and hit the road again. "Act now," they used to exhort at this stage.
Collector's note: these are the in-store editions of "Interrogations & Confessions," the ones with Billy painted in black and hoisting the bass on the cover. It's got a slightly different song sequence and a slightly bassier mix of "Torture" on it than the other edition that was sold only at shows.
Once Billy alights on land and dries himself off with a towel, we'll figure out what's next. In the meantime, rock or at least roll your way through a sublime summer,
oh my god
Billy has joined a great friend of the oh my god band, Cactus Jim (as we call him) on a swashbuckling sailboat adventure (just the two of them), from Florida past Cuba through the Panama Canal and up the California coast. They will be gone at least through late March. They'll be updating us all via www.sevenseasdream.com. Go there, watch and cross your fingers...
