New Release From Electric Six

Electric Six, or as I like to call them "The Most Important Band in the World", just released a new album titled "I Shall Exterminate Everything Around Me That Restricts Me From Being The Master".

The new album is just about what you'd expect from Electric Six - disco rock with completely insane lyrics by Dick Valentine apparently sent to him from another dimension. As soon as I heard these lines, sung in an inexplicable song called "Randy's Hot Tonight" I laughed out loud and very hard:

"If you live in Japan, you're Japanese
If you live in Canada, you're gonna freeze
If you live in a plastic house, you'll never die in a fire
If you work in television, then you're a f**king liar"

Also a big hit on iTunes is the song "Down at mcdonnelzzz" (apparently they don't want the golden arches coming after them on copyright violations or something) with the key line "everything's coooooollll". Spend 99 cents and give them a try, for god's sakes.

Dan and I are big fans of Electric Six and always go see their live shows when they are in town in Chicago or Madison if we can make it. The last show I saw had 3 bands and was only $15 so they are a bargain, to boot.
