My band DTCV made a video. It’s for the first single from our upcoming double album Hilarious Heaven. Which will be put out by Xemu Records. Which is home to our friends Dead Meadow, whose Steve Kille recorded the new album. Which features artwork by Robert Pollard. The song goes like this:

I’m going to be reading, probably from my forthcoming collection of short fiction Everything Flows, at the Pygmalion Lit Fest in Champaign-Urbana, or Urbana-Champaign, or somewhere in Illinois, on September 27 or 28. I’ll also be playing in DTCV on one of those two days as well. The music line-up is here. There is a band called Major Lazer headlining which is probably the worst band name I’ve ever heard. I’m sure they’re awesome.

I reviewed Joshua Cohen’s collection of four long short stories, Four New Messages, for Bookforum, which you can find wherever Bookforum in its papery form is still sold, and also online here. My review calls Cohen “immoderately brilliant,” and the takeaway for those disinclined to read reviews is “buy this book.”

Plus also too, I was interviewed by The Believer about the differenece between playing music and writing, or something like that, which you can find here. It was disclosed during this interview that I’ll be doing a tour diary for the The Believer about my band Détective‘s upcoming tour with Guided By Voices. Fans of rambling first person anecdotes should begin bating their breath now.

The indispensable site UbuWeb once again proves its indispensabilityness. Click here to watch the 45 minute film of J-L Godard and J-P Gorin’s 1970 tour of American universities (ham-fisted screenshot above) in search of funding for a never-completed film supporting the Palestinain struggle (North of Onhava studiously avoids taking political positions and is not about to start now). Interesting (to me) mostly because you rarely get to hear Godard speak English, and his accent is funny.
