Titus Andronicus

Hello friends. First of all, let me thank everyone who came out to our New Year's Eve show with the So So Glos at the Mercury Lounge - it was a lot of fun! Whee! I want to send a special message to one person in particular though. It was some sort of burly-ish gentleman in the front row who wore a big winter coat and scarf. We were playing "Where Eagles Dare" by the Misfits because that song rocks, and during the last verse, I saw this guy singing along, and so I decided to stick the microphone in his face to sing with him, because that is the thing to do when you are playing a song like "Where Eagles Dare." Imagine my delight to hear that this guy had a great voice! Really, I have put microphones in people's faces many times before during that part of that song, and I can honestly say, this guy was the best singer of them all. My thought processes were a bit of a blur at this point, being New Year's Eve and all, so I made a pretty lame attempt at mounting this guy's shoulders so that I could ride him around during the last chorus. I don't know - at the time, it seemed like the thing to do. It didn't really work out, and my girlfriend chided me later for sticking my crotch in this guy's face. Hey, guy - if you disliked that event as much as my girlfriend thought you probably did, I am really sorry! I was acting crazy because I was so excited about yr great voice. You did a good job. I was trying to do a good job too - if I didn't, many apologies. If you ever see me on the street, tell me who you are, and I will let you stick yr crotch in my face for a minute or so, and we'll be even Stephens. [Patrick]

Love how on one of the coldest nights of the year, the woman w/ tattoos dons a tank top. Was this her first night in NYC and she wanted to make sure everyone knows she ain't kidding around about her love of underground music and culture?

Still think TA sound too much like the Pogues. Can't wait for the indie revival to be over and done w/.

12:03 they did not play Camus. Don't worry. You did miss an awesome set though. The new songs sound great!

TA sound like countless punk bands that they're so clearly and lamely ripping off, song to song. for them to play "where eagles dare" is blasphemy. saw them at the whitney and basically sang along the original lyrics to whatever song they were ripping off (that "ball and chain" rip off is especially egregious). go back to your parents' basement and come up with some original ideas, for fuck's sake. punk rock karaoke happens at arlene's every week already.

haha, 2:24 recommends going to arlene's. i would definitely be interested in hearing further musical criticism from this authority.

For the record, that is an impostor. I am better.
