me and my girl

this came up onto my radar today. from said the gramophone one of the *sweetest* things ever, nice. posted in full cos its better:

Merci The Franks Merci

The Franks – “Health Sciences”

Me and my girl, we get along. We go to the supermarket and I go inside and get 5-minute pancake mix and she gets old produce out of the dumpster. We go driving and I read the map while she holds the solar panel. We play music and she plays the high notes and I play the low ones. We go dancing and she goes nuts and I sit on the stool in a pair of shitty sunglasses. We ride bikes and she scrapes a stick with one hand and I sing the anthem. We take a shower and she does all the hair and I do all the skin. We watch a movie and she does the lines while I strike the poses. Me and my girl, we get along.

The Franks – “Cough it Up”

My girl and me, we get along. She treats me right. She yells at me and calls me dumb and steals my money and uses my dishes and wears my clothes and loses my keys, but still I know she treats me right. ‘Cause when she holds my hand, she does this thing. She slides her palm down the inside of my arm, and her fingers slide along the inside of my hand and calls my fingers to hers like magnets. Our fingers match up like a mirror, you know, or like on a window when someone’s in prison, and then -click- they slide over one notch, you know? They click over and our fingers interlock and she wraps her fingers hard around my hand and squeezes our palms together and presses my hand against her jeans. It’s like, her hand can’t lie. You can’t fake that interlocking thing.

[Buy the *marvelous* Duh]

also: M.I.A. has a new video, combining her consummate artistry with the startling talent of Romain-Gavras

DUH, it’s a RELEASE PARTY!

Well, kind of. Between you and me webworld, it doesn’t look like we’ll have our vinyl by then. Either way, come out, celebrate, get some stuff for free, shake some hands, pat some backs, and burn some holes in your souls because this is going to be great. It’s our first show of the new year and since 2010 is the year of the Frank and we were relatively quiet for the first 1/12th of it, well, you can expect a banger of a good time.

Here’s the facebook invite

And here’s the gist of it: $5/ 18+/ 10pm
