The Dead Milkmen Return!

Somehow, internet social media failed to let me know that The Dead Milkmen have a new album out: The King In Yellow. It’s been out since March. I haven’t followed The Dead Milkmen very closely in recent years, since the last time I checked the official “Will The Dead Milkmen ever perform or record again?” answer was “No. It’s over. And one of our two lead singers committed suicide.”

But, hey, they’re back! Sweeeeeet! I immediately bought the album and have only listened to one track so far (“Meaningless Upbeat Happy Song”) but it sounds like vintage Dead Milkmen. I am very, very, very happy.

Also, they’re playing as part of the Athens Popfest October 11-15th. That’s a bit of a hike from Tampa (though since it’s Athens, Georgia and not Athens, Greece it’s not that bad) and thanks to my rather limited musical knowledge the only other act on the lineup that I recognize is Marc With A C. But I really like Marc With A C.

    Oh, bloody hell!

    First the iPad 2. Then the movie marathon. Then the movie fest. Then the new album. Now a roadtrip! Someone seems to be performing amazing feats of work avoidance.

    At this rate, we’ll NEVER see the new Graverobbers Wanted?

    Actually, I’m just waiting on the final tweaks of the four (yes, four) new covers, all of which will be revealed at the same time. Then things will start to happen very quickly!

    The King in Yellow? Well, that used to be an inside joke between me and a friend of mine. Don’t know if I should be happy or peeved because they used it.
