New Single!: There's Nobody In This Town Worth Fucking

Sexual dissatisfaction can be as fun a subject for a song as sexual satisfaction, just ask The Rolling Stones.  Where this one came from is anyone's guess, but it was fun to write.  The characters in the song appear to be a cougar who can't find any prey and a closeted gay man in 1965.  Musically, I clearly had fun with a wah wah effect, but otherwise it's the usual guitar, vocals, keyboard as bass, and drums.  The weirdest instrument is probably a jingle bells Christmas decoration used for percussion.  Lyrics are below:

She burns bridges just to light her way.
And tomorrow is just a future yesterday.

There's nobody in this town worth fucking.

She leaves the gym looking like a million bucks that no one wants to spend.
And she wonders if any of them can still get it up, this town's men.

Meet me in the 6th floor restroom, anonymous sex in an office building.
It's 1965, and you have to hide.  Was that Bob from Accounting?

Comic: Fast Guy Vs. The Squirrel Sultan

I had fun drawing a Fast Guy comic.  It details him meeting one of the villains named in the book.  It is below.  Click on it to make it bigger.

Comic!: The Cosmic Counter!

In Fast Guy Slows Down, the protagonist regularly reads a comic book about The Cosmic Counter, so I decided to draw a Cosmic Counter comic.  Click on it to enlarge:

What's Your Flow Setting, Baby?

The new album is out!  It's a collection of songs I wrote from 1995 to 2014 that I still like to play (or did anyway while I was recording the album as a couple have dropped from the set subsequently).  As with Severe Platter Damage, I pretty much play everything, for better or worse.  The track list is as follows:

1. (I'm Going To) Youngstown (To Get Fucked Up) (2:27)
2. Canaries (2:09)
3. The Calling (3:27)
4. Hey, Honey! (3:13)
5. Why Honey Sings (2:00)
6. Mary Black Mary Black Mary Black (2:52)
7. A Kiss, A Cheek (2:06)
8. OH, Jeff (4 May 1970) (2:17)
9. Alger Hisses (2:33)
10. AM Radio Song (2:21)
11. Political Party B.Y.O.B. (2:57)
12. I Love The Library (1:50)
13. Smooth Jazz Riot (2:26)
14. A Song For Sonnenfeld (3:09) 

The liner notes can be found here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1A6ogHof_y51wCv96yU3UFOI7YehcJwT_/view?usp=share_link

I am thankful on this Thanksgiving Day to have gotten another album in.  If luck holds out, then I should have another next year.  I released all the tracks as singles earlier this year, but they sound nice in this order and arguably build to a whole which is greater than the sum of its parts.  I still have to get the Bandcamp version up, but you can check it out on Soundcloud (should be embedded above), Spotify (whose Wred Fright Radio continues to be fun), and many other places where digital music is available.

Liner Notes For What's Your Flow Setting, Baby?

I finished the liner notes for the new album, What's Your Flow Setting, Baby?  They are at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1A6ogHof_y51wCv96yU3UFOI7YehcJwT_/view?usp=share_link.  The album will be released on Spotify and whatnot soon.  I'll throw up a more muted version on Bandcamp soon as well for those who think Tim by The Replacements is a good production job.  I will get the official Soundcloud playlist up soon as well, but you can do it yourself already here:  https://soundcloud.com/wredfright.  

Thanks to The Tinnitist for featuring "A Song For Sonnenfeld" on a recent playlist!

Comic: I Hate Working With George

I got back into drawing comics this year because there didn't seem to be as many good ones around, so if I wanted to read more fun comics, it looked like I was going to have to make some of my own.

So I did.

Here's one of them.  Click on it to make it bigger.
