Glue Eater

Looking through my email, I came across my monthly newsletter from Matador Records and this interesting item about the upcoming Stephen Malkmus album. So, I repost it here for your viewing information and generally to spread the "fuck you's" to Paste Magazine.

Read on . . .



As we count down the days until the release of
SM's ridiculously great 3rd album, 'Face The
Truth', we call your attention to the following free
instore performance:

Seattle
May 24th at 7PM
Sonic Boom Ballard
2209 NW Market St.

You can hear Stephen performing live on KEXP
(http://www.kexp.org) at noon (PDT) on May 24.

Download the new Stephen Malkmus e-card and do
with it as you will:

Finally, we'd like to offer a shout-out (ie.
"fuck you") to the cowards and thought-cops at the Ad
Dept at Paste Magazine who have deemed our
proposed advertisement for 'Face The Truth' to be
beyond the bounds of "good taste." God forbid that
anything might challenge the sensibilities of
Paste's Yep Roc-loving, Starbucks-guzzling, Wes
Anderson-worshipping readership. Seriously, if there's
anything we or SM have done that is a poor fit
with Paste's Ad Dept's narrow worldview, that is
the highest compliment we've been paid since the
last time Spin refused to run one of our ads.

The ad in question can be viewed here:

Commie muthafuckas!
