“… the pity, terror, strangeness, and magnificence of it all.”

RELEASE WEEK / I got the backdraft of last night’s Mesa, AZ Chicken And Waffle Wings running flush in mustache and beard. Two showers in and I don’t know if it is shakeable. That relationship was good but it needs to be over now. Hatteras Night, A Good Luck Charm LP, CD and downloads are officially available this Friday, March 24, thanks to Undertow. Release night/show will take place in the great city of San Francisco, and it sure feels good to be back out here in the West. LP, CD and downloads available via Undertow // iTunes // Bandcamp // Amazon, or at various record stores all around. I’ll have the new record in tow on this run, as well as limited supplies of the new Different Folk “Patient, Patient Man”/”Uinta” 7″, and the re-press of the record Jason Molina and I made together. The merch table will be stacked with older titles and some baseball prints as well.

REDO THE STACKS TURNS 20 / Twenty years ago this week (March 23, 1997), the first Centro-matic LP, Redo The Stacks was released. At the time I thought I’d make a record or two, then heave myself toward the numerous ways graduate school can break a person. Instead, that record was a direct route to some lifelong friendships, and a lot of incredible years with my Centro bandmates. I send love and thanks to Matt Pence, Scott Danbom, Mark Hedman, Bob Andrews, Lindsey Romig, Matt Barnhart, and all the folks that worked at Steve Records. They made those songs and that record come to life, and I’m thankful for it.

See you down the road. -Will J.
