More notes from 1972.

“Just why the American electorate gave the present administration such an overwhelming mandate in November remains something of a mystery to me. I firmly believed throughout 1971 that the major hurdle to winning hte presidency was winning the Democratic nomination. I believed that any reasonable Democrat could defeat President Nixon. I now think that no one could have defeated him in 1972.”
– McGovern,a couple months after his humiliating loss in 1972 – quoted in Fear & Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72.

Dr. Thompson continues:

… his campaign was doomed from the start: conceived in a fit of hubris, born in a momentary power-vacuum that was always more mirage than reality,borne along on a tide of frustration churned up by liberal lintheads and elitist malcontents in the Easter Media Establishment,and finally bashed into splinters on the reefs of at least two basic political realities that no candidate with good sense would eve have tried to cross in the first place .. To wit:

1) Any incumbent President is unbeatable,except in a time of mushrooming national crisis or a scandal so heinous – and with such obvious roots in the White House – as to pose a clear and present danger to the financial security and/or physical safety of millions of voters in every corner of the country.

2) The "mood of the nation," in 1972,was so overwhelmingly vengeful,greedy,bigoted,and blindly reactionary that no presidential candidate who even faintly reminded "typical voters" of the fear & anxiety they’d felt during the constant "social upheavals" of the 1960s had any chance at all of beating Nixon lats year – not even Ted Kennedy – because the pendulum "effect" that began with Nixon’s slim victory in ’68 was totally irreversible by 1972. After a decade of left-bent chaos,the Silent Majority was so deep in a behavioral sink that their only feeling for politics was a powerful sense of revulsion. All they wanted in the White House was a man who would leave them alone and do anything necessary to bring calmness back into their lives – even if it meant turning the whole state of Nevada into a concentration camp for hippies…

"pure nut-cutting politics"
—-

Where were we in 2004 when Kerry was shamed and tossed back by Bush and the Neocon Republicans? America was catatonic with fear,stuck in a Hell of its own creation. The notion that God would set us right no matter what was quite popular amidst two wars that felt out of our control. We were still stuck in the helpless fear of the 9/11 era – an attack could come from anywhere,by anyone that looked remotely foreign or professed to accept anything foreign. The dark underbelly of bigotry and racism was justified in broad daylight – that Pendulum Effect Hunter writes about in 1972 was pegged right and looked stuck there for good.

Things are not fixed in 2008,but it looks like the Pendulum has come unstuck. We have 4 days until Election Day. Any conventional campaigning is over. The Fix Is In for McCain and his options are limited. Thoughts of vicious lies and sabotage are beginning to seem plausible to the McCain campaign on the Friday before the weekend break for most voters. Something on the scale of diseased prostitutes,piles of the White Death,stockpiled AK47’s in a back office at the Illinois State Capital building,or some combination of the three might do the trick. People still scare easily,and may spook or bolt on Nov. 4 in OH,FL,VA,PA throwing everyone into an inescapable sense of failure and a realization of the True Nature of this frightening country. No,wait,let’s not go on that bad trip again: finish the beer,enjoy the music,relax.

The current financial problem is exactly the sort of “mushrooming national crisis" that plagues McCain as the GOP candidate. While terrorism and war seem outside of our every-day grasp,American economics is rooted here in the domestic arena. This is something that Americans feel is under government control. The collapse of mortgages,housing prices and home values can be seen as a very real,palpable thing to those suffering its direct consequences. Like your house dropping in value from $400k to $290k,and your ARM readjusting into some sort of bad credit nightmare. That steadfast faith in the normalcy and compliance of Republican dominance fades when faced with tangible consequences of poor policy. This may be why even though McCain seems to have relied heavily on the base Republican economic arguments,his poll numbers show little change. He’s probably solidified the people who bought into the GOP themes in the first place and remain unaffected by the markets,but not to those who no longer believe the GOP’s past 8 years of economics.

Find the Promoter… More Dumb Shock and Awe… Never Give Up!

I vaporized my knuckle. I hit a large,unforgiving wood door while attempting to hit the promoter in the face. I missed. There wasn’t as much pain as I expected,but my mood turned foul as the promoter fled the scene. I was left to the mercy of Jen,Cris,and Rocka and the bandmates who were less than thrilled at the prospect of my inability to load all the gear back into the practice space at 3am. I’m hoping for a rematch once this heals,but I think the promoter has skipped town in congeto on a Thai cargo ship filled with human feces and syphilis-ridden semen. We knew he was a drug-addled vicious rat when he double-booked the night,making promises to both bands – and leaving me to deal with his rotten mess.

I’m off to the goddamn hospital,where I will undoubtedly have the opportunity to read through several good books before someone is able to provide me with a new,metal knuckle. Which ought to help when I head back over to Thailand to find this motherfucker. I’ll ask the Doc whether he can provide me with better aim with this new knuckle.

Update: I’ve only managed to provide myself a convenient contusion. Unfortunately the Doc wasn’t keen on replacing my currently bruised knuckle with a shiny new contusion-free stainless Knuckle of Justice. I’m left with a hampered ability to type,a prescription for vicodin and an complimentary ice pack.

Taking account of it all,last night was a bad show. There is a bad shock in being left a few minutes to wire together heavy amplifiers,losing power,and running out of time about a quarter through the set. Snapping the headstock off the bass in the ensuing melee is a heavy consequence for any professional musician to accept.

A long Sunday,Bad Visions,Cheap Champagne is the Cure,1900 words of Hope,Fear,and Desperation.

This morning I woke up without much of the sickly intense pain or nauseous regret that normally comes with large quantities of cheap champagne and Miller swill. I attribute this good fortune to those friends around me who seemed to take much more of the impact than I did, leaving me to scrounge for half-empty glasses near the bar. The event was Eric and Betsy’s wedding which went fine – one of those modern marriage ceremonies where the reverend makes quick work of the Word of the Lord,a few short legal statements of intent,a kiss and off we go to the bar. Today the westerly wind blew hard. It threw my front door open twice during my afternoon breakfast and once again just now I can hear it above Bob Dylan down in the National Affairs Desk studio, newsdesk. and armory.

The Desk has been more active recently. The drafting table that normally fills up with cigarette butts and empty bottles from The Lambs’ sessions is somewhat clean,the rock and roll refuse replace with copies of various news magazines and books, ripped-up post-its pens,pins,ink jars… The TV is on,though the perfect storm of football and baseball has taken over my usual Simpsons and Family Guy episodes,and no news. The main source of information tonight is the CNN Politicalticker,RCP,and 538,along with Vonnegut’s Jailbird and the various news periodicals over on the drafting table.

They only run two articles now: Obama will win,and variations on the theme. Most of the variations take on the form of "Its not over yet" and "long time to go." These are the things John McCain may now be believing himself. Not through any self-delusion or senility,but by the fact he doesn’t have anything else at this point. The media is writing the conclusion of this election,enraging McCain supporters and right-wing talk show hosts and prompting Obama to continue the get-out-the-vote pressure. A lot of excuses on polling data are dragged out when the numbers are down this far and you can no longer deal with the depressing thought of losing. The favorite appears to be the hip Bradley Effect, where people lie to pollsters to hide their racism,artificially elevating a non-Caucasian candidate. Unfortunately,many studies have found that after the Bradley Effect was discovered in 1982 by Tom Bradley himself,elections throughout the 80’s and 90’s showed that racial discrepancies in polling data diminished. If there was a Bradley Effect,it would likely have been present in the primaries,yet Obama often did better than expected.

Other excuses seem to be the "likely voter" model of polling,an esoteric necessary variable applied to polling data. I believe my favorite is the one McCain is currently proposing,which is simply stating that the polls do not accurately show McCain supporters. The details of this argument are "vague" in the sense that they don’t exist,and McCain is flatly denying polls. Ah well; it probably works in his favor – no one wants the bad trip of losing the big race with so much deep,personal emotion invested in their candidate and campaign. And lose it bad. Really bad. That sort of thing is too terrible,and you start to see your flanks run and flee from the battlefield to stay home,lay low,and stay quiet for a couple years.

There is a very real possibility that Republicans will not mention the year 2008 ever again after November 4. The Bush years are doomed to history,and very few will admit to their involvement and support of the Dumb and Stupid. Those W04 stickers are hard to scrape off the backs of SUVs. Luckily,most have been sold for suburban scrap in the face of ARM adjustments and the following market collapse.

Even the world series is in trouble. On TV is a still closeup of Longoria’s glove full of baseball shoved up Rollin’s ass about 2 feet from third base; in the next few frames the ump calls Rollins safe at third. The Rays are Not Pleased,and the Phillies seem grateful for Cheap Thrills.

Hannity on Fox News is running an expose on the top reasons not to vote for Obama. He’s telling Obama’s life story as a chain from one McCain attack ad and Republican talking point to the next. Each step is concluded with Fox News’ patented phrases against Liberal Media. There isn’t a clearer example of the purpose of Fox News – to create an exact opposite of the Republicans’ own creation of liberal-biased news organizations, to serve as a repeater for campaign attacks. Rarely probing or insightful,always predictable,the likes of Hannity and O’Reilly almost sound satirical if they weren’t so horribly serious. Their fear is no longer masked but out there right in the open for all the addicts and believers to share in.

The idea that the liberal media has covered Obama more like a rock star than a politician might seem plausible. Obama is always shown dancing and joking,smiling and talking with all sorts of people,always with such casualness that probably unnerves the severe and serious doom-and-gloom of Karl Rove and those Fox News believers. But then again that’s not CNN. That’s Obama. His polling is not the effect of the media. His popularity and his personality are the cause of his rock-star image,something that obviously resonates with younger voters and has at least helped energized turnout in historic numbers. The failure of fear-based political tactics of recent Republican elections reminds me of McGovern in 1972 – an election year that seems to have a lot of similar elements, except for the outcome. At some point sooner or later people grow tired of being afraid. The youth only come out in numbers for a candidate that is truly inspiring rather than a golem of the standard party mechanics. Politicians are not loved people. Their popularity numbers always go down. It seems that the recent elections including identifiable third party candidates is evidence of an American desire for a new face on politics. Obama certainly has that face.

That’s about a thousand words right there,and I haven’t yet gotten to any state numbers or Sarah Palin "going rogue" – another connection to 1972’s selection of Eagleton for VP. Palin represents the standard Bush-Republican candidate. She is perfectly traditional,conservative, and Christian on all the standard GOP points. Whether this actually connects to the necessary centrist-right voters is very much in question. The idea was that McCain would handle them,while Palin secured the Base. This is not working for them the way they had planned. The question is whether that is due to McCain not connecting to the middle class and centrists early on,or due to Palin’s painfully inept answers on a wide variety of foreign policy and economic questions that’s disheartened and divided the base. Karl Rove via Fox News is blaming liberal media with the coverage of Biden as proof. The problem is that Biden is not all that media friendly and largely stays out of major news stories. He doesn’t represent anything new compared to Obama, his political style is very smart,standard and understated. He brings a great amount of experience and solidity to the Obama ticket. These are not newsworthy on a week-to-week and day-to-day basis with so much else to spend time on. When he is in the media in more than a mention,it is nearly always due to a gaffe McCain and the RNC have focused an attack on.

Sarah Palin is the exact opposite of Biden. The McCain advisor who described her as "going rogue" on the campaign accurately called her a "diva." There’s a serious amount of sexism associated with that particular description,yet it probably connect to most Americans’ view of the photogenic,feisty Palin – watch her skit on SNL. She is quite newsworthy on a day-to-day basis,as her message is almost always contrasting McCain’s message the previous day. According to the story, she’s out there on the campaign trail with her own talking points, bypassing campaign staffers to tackle reporters head-on. The speculation is that she’s now campaigning for 2012,not for McCain VP position, which I don’t think is the reason for rogue status,but I would not doubt is something on her mind. This is politics,and a serious amount of ambition is required to operate on a national level. The fact that she’s not connecting with The Base is either because of her inexperience or because the Base is no longer what or where we think it is.

For the next couple days,the national polls will tighten some,and OH and FL will struggle wihin a couple of points for each candidate. With a week left,every hour brings a desperate McCain campaign closer to the brink. That means every hour he’s not in PA,he’s losing PA… OH,FL, and now abandoning Mi’s 17 EVs seems like a serious tactical error. He’s looking at Colorado’s 9 EVs now,but his deficit there is no better than 6 points; the trends have Obama up since 9/11,while McCain has remained fairly stagnant. VA is another nightmare scenario for McCain with 13 EVs and Obama no less than 6 points ahead on average. VA shares similar trend lines with CO: McCain has faltered there since 9/14,only recently bottoming out at 44-46% according to RCP/538. This is leaving McCain with nowhere to run except the hard places that pay big. And that is PA: OH,FL,and VA victories will leave him 12 EVs short of the presidency. His only other options are CO and NM,which seems to be his current tactic. These places are far from OH and FL which are not safe places for McCain,and he’s going to need to be there to convince whomever is left in this last week. NM is never safe for the GOP. In 2004,Bush took it by 1.4 points,in 2000 Gore won with 0.1 points. Neither election cycle had Obama’s operation nor poll strength going into the final week. If McCain wins in an upset,it will be west PA Republicans that delivers it,many people will lose their shirts to a few very lucky bastards on intrade,and we’ll all be in for another 4 years of the Lambs and more rejection and depression within the Democratic party… at least for those that remain part of the system, and many will desert their posts and flee the awful realities of a frightened conservative nation. Terrible,bleak visions now,the heart beats a little faster and my fingertips sweat,the shakes have to be kept at bay. Almost done…

Politics is a vicious addiction and those who deal with it without bias have poisoned their souls and sold off the blood in their hearts for more dope. No more rest until Tuesday. I made a deal with a demon back in 2004 when I decided I wasn’t done with politics until we got revenge for Kerry/FL,and four more years of dumb fear and war. The only comforting thing now is the fact that I pass 8 or 9 Obama/Biden lawn signs on my short commute to work 4 miles away. The lone McCain/Plain sign that was up last week has been replaced by a GMAC/For Sale sign.

Preparing for Election Night Coverage – Stay Tuned.

Some of us are not planning so much for the bliss of retirement,but selling short that long dream for the dangerous,violent urgency of now. Those of us not invested in our futures… ah well,the japanese market fell 4.5% this evening and there are more grim prospects from the 24-hour failure circling the planet.

From my perspective,this is focused on western PA,where Obama’s "spread the wealth" comment has given a foothold to the stumbling and lost McCain campaign. Obama has run a campaign like none other in history focusing on where grassroots movements could sway the thin margins of what used to be considered Bush territory. Part of this design is rejecting the self-defeatist and partisan bitterness felt by democrats after the Kerry defeat – and the subsequent division of America into Edwards’ Two Americas. We see this election in terms of blue and red states. Obama sees this election through the eyes of his ground game and individual supporters. I saw the cracks in the facade in 2006 when Democrats were being elected from strange places I’d blocked out of my mind. Obama’s message of hope was more than simple campaign sloganeering,but rather tapping into what may have been the last remaining vein of success for the Democratic party. He knew there was something tangible he could build on beneath the Religious Right’s visceral grip on politics. They had the message,and the presidency,and the War.

It was a different place about a year and a half ago. Originally McCain was the lamb thrown into the slaughter of what was an inevitable Democratic Presidency in 2009 no matter who it was. There was a new breed of nominees that tapped into the last remnants of the old party: terrorism,fear,fiscal responsibility,and religion. The subjects seemed old and the excitement of the democratic field either energized the core Democrats or scared the shit out of the Republicans that remained faithful to The Party. This was early 2007,back when Obama was trading 100:1 on the Presidency in Vegas,and Clinton was all-but-guaranteed the nomination at 2:1 odds on that same market. Its somewhat surprising Ron Paul dind’t do better as a Libertarian in the Republican field,capable of redefining a new platform for Republicans and a new definition of "conservative". But even in the face of certain defeat third party identification is a simple non-starter. The Democratic party took a risk nominating Barack Obama. He’s everything he said he was – young,inexperienced,weird, black,etc – taking the obvious arguments head on. He proved inspirational,capturing media attention with his 2004 opening speech. He was the youth candidate from the start.

Not today. These obvious arguments have fallen on deaf ears,but his true-blue Democratic beliefs are now front-and-center to the McCain stump speeches. This was the one target the Republicans should have focused on from the start, yet Obama wouldn’t give them any kind of gaffe to sink into. The horribly infamous and ruined Joe the Plumber took care of that – opening the hole that now leads to McCain’s dim light at the end of a very very black tunnel.

What was an honest moment straight from Obama’s heart has turned into the catch-phrase of the Republican campaign. "Spread the Wealth" is frightening to Americans on a religious level. The words lend themselves to the stereotypical American vision of Socialism. This is the first real attack that seems to be working for the Right,and that is because of its very fundamental American connection to the limited identity of voters.

Obama’s staggering lead will tighten in the days up to the election,and this will be expected and within tolerance levels. The problem is that the new socialist label and anti-capitalist narrative of McCain/Palin may be behind those closing poll numbers in PA,and will undoubtedly affect the razor-thin gap in OH and FL.

This is where McCain has refocused his campaign. He cannot play a national game at this late stage,and the national numbers only reflect the state-by-state numbers. He is pulling out of WI,ME,CO,NV to form a sword into the polls of PA,OH, and FL – the states that can give him the Presidency. In the dark political underground he’s been left in,this is the renewed Hope he and the Republican base have taken on.

Palin has taken her job seriously: an unflinching attack dog on Obama. McCain is of course running a traditional campaign where the President remains above the fray,while the consolation prize of VP digs down into the Bad Places for scraps that echo among lunch rooms around the impressionable and undecided. There’s a lot of question now whether Palin is an asset or liability. Her inexperience and goofy stupidity in the national arena makes her immune to the dignity attacks of lowering oneself to personal and flighty attacks.

David Axelrod is on MSNBC reassuring people,which is an interesting tactic in what inevitably will be a tightening race where turnout is vital. But by now the hydrocodone, cabernet,and New Glarus has fuzzed any sort of practical reasoning out into a broad sense of Warning and Fear. Stay The Course. The Republicans are still on a sinking ship. The question is whether the Democrat’s sinking ship is going down any faster… On November 4th,we’re all Ahab seeking to define our struggle over the torn American psyche through the worst and only medium to do so. The American Presidential Election.

MT

Home of Jon Tester’s successful 2006 War Hero-Democrat bid. Research 2000 put McCain at +4 on 10/16,in line with expectations and trends since August… until MSU released a 10/20 poll that puts Obama +4.

There’s not a lot of data coming out of MT,but there’s a LOT of crazy outlier poll data coming in for all sorts of states now.

Could be a shocker on election night to see MT up late counting ballots in a race that’d already be called by then… but I doubt it.

I think ND might be the one that upsets expectations and goes for Obama. I checked intrade to see if I could get a good 5:1 bet,but they’re ahead of me and have already dropped the price down to about 3:1. Not much ROI on that one.

A Lesson in How To Vote.

In these desperate times,the lives of men turn cold and their beliefs are set aside for the hard realities of the phone bank:

Republicans launched an enormous wave of phone calls Thursday blasting Barack Obama for "having worked closely with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers," party sources said.

It’s early evening in the American Household and the pollable landline rings. Up from those roasted potatoes,the American answers the phone with the honesty only present in rural America. "Hello?"

Some are recorded "robocalls," while others are live to comply with relevant state laws. The calls are being paid for jointly by the Republican party and the McCain campaign,according to a script provided by the Republican party.

Your teenage daughter looks up from her dinner,mom asks if its Mrs. Miller about the cobbler.

The "robocalls" criticize Obama national security, his opposition to an Illinois measure that called for doctors to provide medical care to babies who survive botched abortions,his connection with former ’60s radical William Ayers and his response to the financial crisis.

Maybe you notice your daughter has the looks of a Palin: looking for the rough stuff,the hard sex that’ll prove those tax-free Republican ideals and carry it on to the next generation at any cost. Fuck em if they can’t take a joke.You can see the abortion taking place now with Dr. Obama charming and young digging beneath the legs between the stirrups of failed economic policy and American Capitalism. Spread the wealth,he says,those cold speculum in hand.

McCain said he did not care about "an old washed-up terrorist" like Ayers Wednesday night at his debate with Obama.

Now it doens’t matter,it’s just that last quick sprint toward the end. Hard and long like a bad porn film at a suicide bachelor party. Suck it back,drink it down,hope you forget in the few hours before Church. They’ll never see,God’s the only one who will know,and we can deal with Him. Just not the wife and kids. Not the neighbors. Not the school board. Not what grandparents fought wars for,not for the different,the weird. No,now it’s time to take care of us.

Fear,we’ll take care of you.

Points East,10:30pm.

Lambs Friday. Politics today.

RCP’s state map now has Obama/Biden with 286 EVs solid or leaning democrat. They’re not including FL,MO,IN,OH. That’s 94 EVs in RCP’s toss-up states,and giving all of them to McCain puts him at 252 EVs,short of the 277 needed to win. That’s some serious distance and desperation. But they’ve got Sarah Palin and Steve Schmidt – campaign strategist for McCain and Karl Rove prodigy – playing hitmen,with John Weaver doing damage control… The campaign’s not over yet,and we’ve got plenty of time to dig up some serious pigfucking dirt on any candidate. Maybe even some last-minute race baiting. Think of it – it’s a day before you cast your ballot and McCain’s down too far in too many big states – suddenly there’s an announcement from McCain examining the terrifying sex acts, multiple abortions and moral misjudgements of Obama,the Terrorist,the Socialist,invading YOUR Christian safety and hard-earned American Capitalist money. A real hot one with no time to respond. Obama’s campaign watches in horror as Palin walks on stage at her last rally at a gun show in FL in a bikini.

Yup,just enough to ensure any remaining doubt is cast to hardened fear and that lust for American Reality Television.

The only thing left is the misprint on the ballot that says "Osama bin Laden" instead of "Barack Obama" when you get to the polls.

Nevermind that vile scenario now. Obama’s campaign has the details worked out on this sort of move by the other side. Yeah,I have faith. Somewhere. We’ll pull it off anyways; and anyways the American people know better than what they demand on the TV. Right. There are more critical issues at hand. We’ve been double booked for tomorrow’s show at Points East. Exciting. We’re going on early – so come early.

Debate,Friday,Points East.

The one thing that McCain will take from this debate is the perfect anti-democratic soundbite of "distribute the wealth." This was probably something Obama believes,but is not something most undecideds are going to vote for. For many reasons. I’d consider it a minor moment of gaffe for the normally eloquent and nearly perfect Obama campaign machine. At this point,however,the worst this sort of attack can do is slow Obama’s popularity – which should start occurring naturally,as he seems to be convincing independents more and more and there’s only so many left.

That was just one moment in a debate that Obama really had a steady command of. He was again clear and intelligent. He talked confident and supported his arguments with a detailed knowledge of his campaign’s issues. McCain’s attacks could only come in the form of the standard Republican rhetoric – higher taxes,smaller government. It seems to me that without the clarity and confidence and details that Obama put forth,he’s simply responding and on the defense of his principles,relying on people to simply identify with the Republican ideals. The only other offensive front he has is the negative ad material of Ayers and Wright – concepts that the voters probably have little interest in compared to the economy. Something the television is mentioning now: Obama doens’t seem untrustworthy,and those attacks don’t stick. This is something his favorability numbers reflect as well.

This runs into a problem for McCain in that he can’t make his image in that of a maverick and independent of Bush while at the same time only rely on those Republican ideals to win undecideds.

On issues of tax, health care,and the economy,Obama appeared knowledgeable and presidential. These are the issues that are going to win this election. McCain needed to really usurp the narrative and control those issues. He needed to convince people that his plans on those issues are clear and coherent,rather than simply relying on the same old republican ideal of small government. People see the lack of oversight in the markets as a possible source for the current problems,at most as much as the policies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

In the end,there are some big factors that define this election. Race and Gender. Economy. Bush Doctrine & War. Obama’s character and early inspiration – and the corresponding voter turnout. McCain won’t be remembered for the poor campaign he ran against Obama. Obama has the possibility of being seen as one of those rare icons rising out of the sear of divisive,ugly politics.

The Future

Someday,perhaps in a generation or two,in a blissful distant future Windows will support loading drivers from USB. O what a day that will be. Too bad that day is not today. Yes,I could have a mac,in which case I could pay for the convenience of driving to the Apple Store with my gun and talking to a 19 year old "genius" who will simply take the entire piece of scrap metal,throw it into the fire,and sell me a new Mac now with fewer input devices that previous models!

Meanwhile, I’ve used up half my terabyte drive with recordings of practices over the last 6 months,giving very real meaning to the phrase "drive space is cheap." However,I’m running into some skipping issues while recording. This could possibly be due to the shear size of the damn drive and the drive head’s off searching for unexplored distant sectors. Or it could be that I’ve hit my limit with 19 individual channels recording at once. Or the fact that all that data is coming in and going out through one 1394a PCMCIA card. Time to upgrade,I suppose.

What’s it all mean?

It means the Lambs have another show this Friday at Points East opening up for a band coming through on tour called Holding Mercury. If you’re looking for a short and sweet Lambs set,this is it. We go on early,we play fast,and hopefully leave you questioning our continued existence. Here,have a flier.
