David Pajo is actually out on tour with Gene Ween which means you can catch him opening the show Wednesday at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and again the day after that at Highline Ballroom. Tonight/Sunday Gene doesn't have a show though, and David is using his day off to headline the Knitting Factory's Old Office space. Men and Women, Hard Bop and 1200 Trees are also on the bill. In related news, David is putting out a Misfits cover record. He explains...
I'll explain more after the record comes out, but basically I recorded a bunch of misfits songs at a friend's house with a radio shack mic duct taped to a cymbal stand into one of those 70s handheld cassette recorders (back when they had huge hands). it sounded like shit. I was recording the songs to get warmed up (I was about to start work on what became the PAJO record). I usually pick a songwriter that I like and learn some of their songs to get into the mindset. who better than glenn danzig?!Angelfuck is streaming at MySpace. All dates below...
this was in 2004. I forgot all about it but somehow that tape circulated. chan marshal told me she heard it at a photo session a few years ago. it moved to the west coast. it had kids, formed governments, started revolutions. my friend dirk asked me if he could release it on vinyl.
hellz yeh, I replied.
