If you're lookin' for something to do in NJ, come to this show tomorrow @ Meat Town. It's a matinee show (4:30!!!)
We're doing THE CHUNK.
Watch out for ghouls and goblins and all those scary wolves and bloodsucking Tea Party candidates.
INSPECT YOUR CANDY.

In other news, we just got word that our lathe cut 7''s have been delayed by the folks at the plant, not the folks over at Stumparumper. After charges were filed, and acquisitions made over general apathy, the plant finally decided they'd press these things, and pushed back the arrival date practically to the end of man-kind. So needless to say, we won't have them for tour. But they'll hopefully be out before X-mas. They go good with egg nog.
Finally, this Sunday, we're playing a Superchunk cover set @ Meat Town USA in New Brunswick. Erin Fancy from Full of Fancy and Marty Leahy from Silent Way will join our 3 piece to turn this into a bloated cover band of delusional fanatics. A bunch of cracked walnuts, we are. Honored to rock the classics of Chunk. Come in costume. It's an early show. STARTS AT 4:30!!!

So, now that I’m past the self-glorifying birthday wishes to the band, I’m gonna announce that we’re going to be entering the Hunt Studio, NJ to record with Eric Bennet in mid-December to do the full-length album. When it will see the light of day, only time will tell? But for now, I’m going to rejoice in the fact that some of these damn songs will finally be put to tape and scratched off of the “songs to record” list. I hate that list.
Also, brick mower’s going to be on the compilation Friends with Benefits from Love/Hate Records. It should be out in mid-November. We’ll be playing a release show on November 20th at a yet to be named location in New Brunswick to commemorate the hard work put in by the two John’s over at Love/Hate Records. They’ll also be throwing a show in Brooklyn the previous night with other bands from the comp.
Our track is “Daughter, What is the Matter?” however; it’s an unreleased, re-recorded, re-charged, slightly different, and maybe better version than the one on “Floors.” But yea, for you completists, it’s new. Other artists on FWB include Dude Japan, Soft Black, Rapid Cities, mOck, Montagna & The Mouth to Mouth, Ex Wife, In Ribbons, and a ton of other bands are scattered across this thing.
Finally, a lot of shows coming up. Closest one on the calender is at Brighton Bar in Long Branch, Wed. October 27th Starts at 8 PM and it’s $8.
Check the myspace page for more show listings! Thanks a bunch, for the brunch.

This is our webstore we set up a couple weeks ago where you can easily acquire our split 7'', CD ep, or t-shirts. Borrow your mom's credit card and go to town. But if you're under 18, ask your parent's permission. We don't wanna get involved with that jazz.

Hey cool kids. Finally, the weather’s cooling off and our split-personality disorders and economic frustrations are heating up! Yes, October has struck, and the wheels are finally staying on for a change. Because our bandwagon is generally a rickety one.
But brick mower and Period Girls November tour is shaping up nicely and is almost fully rounded out. We’ll be coming to a town near you soon. Here’s what we got so far:
All shows w/brick mower and Period Girls
11/4- Goodbye Blue Monday-
11/6/- UMass Lowell,
11/7- Rebel Sound Records,
11/10- The Modern Post-
11/11- Granny Frost
11/12- Basement 414-
11/13- TBA in
If you know anyone in these great American towns, feel free to spread the word. I’ll post one final revitalized schedule as time goes on. Also, as you can see Saturday November 13th is TBA in
Also, out in time for the tour (hopefully) is our new lathe cut, clear 7’’ on Stumparumper Records. This is going to be a super rare item, pressed in a ridiculously small batch. Does that make us cool? I looked in the mirror this morning and I can already tell you the answer is "no." The artworks done by gig-poster extraordinaire Ryan Duggan, and will be black ink on yellow covers for those who care about such mind-altering minutiae.
Box Turtle ('10 recording of it)
Exit Flagger (Guided by Voices cover)
Again, hopefully be out in late October. Let us know the deal. We can put one to the side for you if you want one.
That’s that for now.
