    Fun of the day: This MP3 made the rounds earlier in the week... it's a clip from Dirty Projectors front man David Longstreth, early on in his weird music writing career. Take a peek at his stylistic interpretation of doo-wop infused boy-banding, as it was called (perhaps a little erroneously).

    The band was called Chances R, and it was supposed to be a joke. Dave on the whole thing [via Stereogum]

    Chances R wasn't my idea, it was my friend Noah Peffer's joke/art project. He had the thought of a fake boy band that packaged the angst of punk for teenage consumption. At the time, it seemed like an outlandish extension of the premise of major label grunge ... now, with all the '00s between us, it seems shockingly self-evident!! Don't u think?

    He made all this fake merchandise and maybe some ads and album covers for Chances R, but he needed a song, so he asked me to write it. It was so fun. I was like 17 or something, and I'd never been to Roxbury, MA before. His friend was chain smoking cigarettes in a tiny apartment that was supposed to be a recording studio, and we went and wrote and recorded it in an afternoon. My friend Pat [Morrissey] did that awesome/bad spoken word.


    Nothing like a good ol' fashioned joke-project with your friends!

    Bitte Orca is out now, of course. You should have it. -joe puglisi
