Jeff, I have video of Okkervil River show over on my site.


The President is Dead is a new song.

In the near future, Okkervil River will release some vinyl-only albums
of recent work, some of it from a January recording session in which
the band recorded 22 new tracks for fun. They've just finished the
first of these, a vinyl single that should be available later in the
year. Side A is a poppy narrative called "The President's Dead," and
Side B is a mid-tempo folky song in the vein of Neil Young and John
"The Wolf King of L.A." Phillips. It's called "The Room I'm Hiding


glad to hear you were inspired to check out the old stuff too. As great as BSB and the appendix are, i personally think "down the river of golden dreams" is their best (i love the songs "seas to far to reach" which they unfortunaly didnt play), and "don't fall in love..." is quite good too. pics and stuff up at my site, too.


OMG! I dig the bongo drummer's scissor tee!
