Maintain This Dumb Web Site Long Enough And An Album Will Appear

November 26th, 2014: Is this real? Is this really really real? Am I really holding a new Steve Taylor album in my trembling hands? Has it really been 20 years since I walked into a Family Bookstore, plunked down fifteen dollars of my hard-earned allowance, and walked out with Squint? Gaggles of other Twits confirm I'm not hallucinating--unless, of course, this is a mass hallucination.

New Interview With Jimmy Abegg

November 12th, 2014: Gabriel Jones writes in to share an interview with Jimmy Abegg on the Perfect Foil's "Goliath" releasing next week. Quoth the artist:

[I]t'll be interesting because the record will be quite polarizing. There's really not easily definable Christian music on it. It's certainly created by men of faith but, on the other hand, it doesn't take aim on any specific topic and make a yay or a nay for it. I guess it's just a fun combination of words and music played by people that are having so much fun it's embarrassing.

Interestingly, he goes on to say the following. One might compare this next statement with what was frequently said by Chagall Guevara alumni regarding having no agenda.

When I started this band with the boys, one of the first things my wife said "Not another non-profit". [...] But this one is just a really exciting time. We've all kinda been around the block a little bit and I think there's an agenda-less approach.
