I am finally able to announce that the split vinyl single for R. Stevie Moore and Boys Age is officially released. I write "finally" because although (or more correctly because) vinyl is once again the physical medium of choice for the majority of music listeners, it's not the easiest or quickest process in the world to get the stuff pressed these days.
But good things come to those who wait, and this is definitely a good thing. As the drummer on the Father of Lo-Fi's track here, "Boysage", I am admittedly not a disinterested party, but I'd also be dishonest if I didn't say that this track is classic, infectious RSM genius. I'm including Ken Linck's brilliant stop motion animation video here, which I think complements the song wonderfully.
The record has two sides, of course, and I highly encourage you to flip the disc over after listening to "Boysage" (about twenty consecutive times!) to check out Boys Age's offering, "Be Your R. Stevie Moore" (see what they did there?).
While I encourage any and all RSM and Boys Age fans to buy a copy here from Bleeding Gold Records for a paltry seven dollars, I know they will sell out, since there are only 200 copies around to my knowledge. Rest assured when these gems are gone, however, that you can buy the song online here, as well as the complete album, entitled Fifteen Tons.
Thanks, as always, for tuning in!
