It's my favourite b-side from BaGiA.  Well, maybe Girls Like Status is.

I just found THS' cover of Bob Seger's "Against the Wind", and boy does it ever kick ass.

You can give it a listen here (I'm on the mp3 hunt):

New b-side!  I'm pretty positive this is a Violent Femmes cover, correct me if I'm wrong.

Wonderful news:

"Some Hold Steady movie news! "Girls Like Status" will be on the soundtrack for the upcoming "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" soundtrack. We're doing a Dylan cover for the upcoming Todd Haynes biopic "I'm Not There", with a star-studded cast."

MMJ and THS together on a Dylan tribute...yes please.

Today's a great day for a HS fan:

Here's the brand new video for "Stuck Between Stations".  Straightforward performance video with a hilariously brilliant ending.

And here's some news about a forthcoming acoustic EP.  I can't wait to hear my favourite B-side acoustic (You Gotta Dance...).

I finally bought Boys and Girls In America and listened to it today for the first time, and I have to agree that it's genius.  I haven't enjoyed an album on the first listen as much as this for quite some time.
The trouble with the straight and the narrow is it's so thin, I keep sliding off to the side

Wonderful!  Now you must get Seperation Sunday.  It's one of my absolute favourite albums of this decade.

Thanks Red, I've just ordered it - I'll let you know how I get on.  :)

I also took the opportunity to buy Bobby Bare Jr's The Longest Meow.  Never heard him before, so that'll be something else to look forward to, hopefully.

THIS ALBUM IS FREAKING AWSEOME

Im usually not one for huge, all caps statements, but "Boys and Girls in America" waarants it. I dig the whole kinda Bruce Springsteen meets Tom Sawyer/ The E Street Band meets Thin Lizzy vibe. If you havent gotten it yet, give it a listen.

Great news Kory!  I haven't heard anything in a while.  


The boys just did a version of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame".  You can download it at www.myspace.com/theholdsteady

Separation Sunday arrived yesterday.  Wow.  It is very, very good indeed.  Thanks for the recommendation, Red.

This has always been my absolute favourite HS verse, kills me every time:

i saw her at the party pit.
she was shaky but still trying to shake it.
half naked and three quarters wasted. she was completely alone.
i saw him at the riverbank.
he was breaking bread and giving thanks.
with crosses made of pipes and planks.
 leaned up against the nitrous tanks.
he said take a hit. hold your breath and i'll dunk your head.
 then when you wake up again, you'll be high as hell and born again
