In related news (if you want to call it that),

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks' new album (out August 23) is called Mirror Traffic, but, according to a recently posted e-mail exchange, it was originally going to be called L.A. Guns (at the suggestion of former Silver Jews front man David Berman). However, Malkmus's lawyers nixed the title when they learned of the existence of a band with the same name. After reviewing the case of Pump, Inc. v. Collins Management, Inc., in which "an obscure group called Pump unsuccessfully sued Aerosmith for putting out their album Pump"... [NY Mag]

The full email exchange is at David Berman's website.

And remember how Fred Armisen is a fan of Holy Sons? Fred further confirms that fact in a video you can watch, with all tour dates, below...
