Mirror , Mirror On The Wall, Who's The Weirdest of Them All?

If I had to say who the biggest weirdo in underground music , I'd vote for my buddy Jeff Schneider , formerly of Arab On Radar , currently of the excellent Made In Mexico .
Brilliant guitarist , hilarious guy and total superfreak.
He's pretty quiet in real life bro-downs but online , he's got alot to say. I love this dude.

Playing the whole album tonight and tomorrow , and then some.

Goal: trying to take the perimeters of "rock" or "punk" and push the to the breaking point. ????

Tour dates are up , line-ups coming together .

Goal : to get to see all the exciting bands that will never make it to Montreal by playing with them. (and buy their tshirts and 7"s) !!!!!!

I feel weird about playing. Andre's last shows and the last time we played together was in Tel Aviv , a billion years ago. Montreal is pissing rain and the day is generally non-beachy. Listened to Panopticon jam last night and they have tapped into this heavy psych that goes perfectly with the clicks and drones of our printing press. SO GLAD they are FINALLY putting out an LP. Brace yourselves , Montreal has a few secret weapons.

This Is Spinal Tap

We have a new guitarist. His name is Alex Moskos and if you've been following the Montreal avant scene over the past few years you might have seen him performing as part of the Unireverse , Et Sans , Goa , Thames or solo as
Drainolith. Or perhaps djing as Khozzy Mozzborne at Casa or Blackjack.

Myles and I have both know him since the old days , back in Ottawa and he's a chiller dude.

Andre is now the Chuck Dukowski of AIDS wolf and if you don't know what that means then you haven't done your homework and and
Get In The Van.

Andre's gonna be doing the Montreal and Toronto record launches with us this weekend as his last shows , Alex takes over in time for Pop Montreal and CMj.
