Sirs: Boo Hoo 12″ EP Out Now

The lastest in my personal disease management saga* concerning music:

Chris Kreb and I started a weird rock band called Sirs in 2008. Back then it was just the two of us, he on microphone and bullwhip, myself on guitar, bass and computer.  We put out a 7″ called Billy The Kidney, then Chris moved to Germany.  Around that time I started working with Tony Jones and Mike Greenlees, bringing some of the early material over.  Sirs Mk II lasted until Mike was gently reminded of the existence of his three children. During the Mk II phase, we recorded an album’s worth of songs, then threw away half to leave an EP named Boo Hoo.

Boo Hoo was released yesterday on 12″ vinyl and download format.  Check it out/buy it at sirs.bandcamp.com

Sirs Mk III remains a weird rock band and is comprised of Tony, myself and Shut Up Andy Kosinski on drums. If Andy’s got any kids, he don’t wanna know. We play next at Saki on Fullerton Ave in Chicago this Saturday at 6PM.

* For most people who stick with making original aggressive electric music, the effect on one’s life is akin to that of a disease. Lots of hassle, lots of special arrangements, compulsions, technical requirements and the need for a bottomless well of understanding from loved ones. It’s not comparable to a disease in the sense that the payoff is awesome: certain thrills can only be felt by building and presenting big sounds. But for the other 97% of the life lived in between the payoff, this type of self-expression is profoundly similar to, oh, diabetes. A lifelong condition that needs managing.

    Trippy tune – very cool. I love it – and I love the zippy guitar thing. Nice work.
