Well, it took almost three years, but Chunklet 20 is ready to hit the streets!
In this, the 20th issue of Chunklet (20 issues, 15 years!), it promises to be the most brutal issue yet. Featuring interviews with Paul F. Tompkins, Zach Galifianakis, Jon Glaser and Sublime Frequencies. There are also features involving Whirlyball with Arcade Fire, The Shins, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Lips, Deerhunter, Death Cab for Cutie, Mogwai and countless others. Features also on music journalists, drug appreciation, good guys/bad bands and the usual array of Chunklet insanity (or inanity depending on your outlook).
The issue will be peppered all over the mom and pop shops from coast to coast. However, Chunklet.com always likes to treat people who frequent our website with a bit of "special" love and this issue is no exception.
Nobody thought it could be done, but it’s happening! Comedian Zach Galifianakis! Ted Leo! The Pharmacists! All on one seven inch single! Yes, you read correctly!
One of the world’s most innovative comedians, Zach Galifianakis, joined up with comedian AD Miles, record producer Jon Brion and Fiona Apple (yes, that Fiona Apple) to record the ultra-danceable track "Up In Them Guts". We guarantee that it’ll soon to outpace "You Look Mahvelous" by Billy Crystal but will only come close to touching anything off Joe Pesci’s solo album.
The flip is by Ted "Rockstar" Leo! Yes! Teddy went into the studio with his Pharmacists and recorded "Rock’n’Roll Dreams’ll Come Through" which is a song that was originally made popular on The Best Show on WFMU and featured on "New Hope For The Ape-Eared" CD by Tom Scharpling & Jon Wurster.
Both tracks are exclusive to this single. The first 500 are on picture disc!
And as with previous singles, it won’t be available in stores! It’s only available with purchase, and only chunklet.com has it!
Also! Due to vociferous international inquiries, the Rock Bible (ranked #1 in some truly silly categories at Amazon) is now for sale at Chunklet.com.
New issue! Whee! Get on it! Celebrate the new dark age with us!
