down the road down the road

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. We got a tree. It's not the most impressive tree, but it's ours. Kind of like the tree you'd expect a couple grad students to be rocking. But yeah! We got a tree.

Down the road we've also got a mess of dates with our pals the Bottle Rockets too as well as our first cruise. Out of Tampa FL, The WMNF Tropical Heatwave Cruise. See GIGSVILLE for more deets.

Peace and love,

TEXAS TOAST

Folks,

We're back from our Euro tour. We came, we saw, we got up and played twenty-four shows in twenty-five days or something, and we still somehow managed to avoid using the kettle in the room. (Dan Stuart suggests you stay away from those electric room kettles. He claims people boil their underwear in them.)

Sounds pretty serious.

Seriousness aside, the band is playing great and things have been going pretty well. (How well, Chuck?) Well, let me put it this way: if you can afford to have your clothes dry-cleaned, then you're not doing too badly, right? I love dry cleaning. I'd get my socks dry-cleaned if I thought I could.

Even though I'm typing this at 4:00 AM, I am starting to feel like my old self again (whoever that is) after this last run of shows. Haven't had the time to feel homesick. I am sure I will enjoy getting back out there, but there is no homesickness quite as strong as the homesickness when you are still at home but know you are about to leave. But this having your body clock turned around upside down is kind of cool. There have been times where I get so restless I jump out of bed at 4:00 AM. And I've even gone so far as to walk to my office. Which is kind of an experience. I mean, walking through the Tenderloin at 4:30 AM? I recommend it highly.

Meanwhile, The Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins Tour continues. We're headed to Texas this weekend for shows in Houston and Austin. Two nights at the Continental Club in Austin. And dig this: EARLY SHOW AND LATE SHOW ON SATURDAY. We're always excited to play in Austin at our home away from home, the Continental Club. We all dig playing the Continental.

We heart Texas. There's more to Texas than Texas football. Austin is a great place to eat a taco. Come join us. Bring home a rattlesnake bolo tie! Eat some Texas toast. Climb aboard an armadillo! Or better yet go surfing. I'm not kidding. Dig this place: a wave machine in the middle of Texas: http://nlandsurfpark.com

Meanwhile in Merchville: we need a very rich fan to order 1,000 copies right now. Bobby Fuller Died for Your Vinyl. At the everyday low price of $19.99. HERE: http://www.theconnextion.com/chuckprophet/chuckprophet_index.cfm?ArtistID=174

What are you waiting for?

Onwards,

–CP

Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins

Chuck Prophet, Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins

★★★★☆

Download this: Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins; In The Mausoleum; Post-War Cinematic Dead Man Blues; Alex Nieto

Master guitarist and accomplished songwriter Chuck Prophet is on top form with this latest collection of reflections and rejections. The pervasive tone of zeitgeist fatigue crystallises in "Post-War Cinematic Dead Man Blues"; but it's there from the start, in the assertive anthem about the potency of cheap music, personified in the mysterious death of Bobby ("I Fought The Law") Fuller in 1966: in the manner of Alex Chilton, Prophet somehow manages to be both wistful and euphoric at once. He's clearly an encyclopaedic master of musical form, piling up influences across these tracks, notably the terse, hypnotic twitch of Alan Vega's space-age rockabilly that drives "In The Mausoleum". But the most effective borrowing applies the "Rockin' In The Free World" riff to the police killing of "Alex Nieto", which draws strength from Prophet's repeatedly returning to the victim's character: "Alex Nieto was a pacifist, a 49ers fan". Powerful and personal, it's a persuasive protest tribute straight from the heart.
