Stephen Malkmus Needs Another Word For “Blowjob”

By brandon / July 15, 2011

Steve Malkmus needs help writing an FCC-friendly “Senator.” Your job’s to figure out a replacement for “blowjob” in the oft-repeated: “I know what the senator wants — what the senator wants is a blowjob.” If your entry’s chosen, Malkmus will sing it for the radio-version of the single Matador’s sending to radio stations at the end of September. You’ll also get a 7″ featuring your “Senator” backed with the Mirror Traffic original. (It’ll be pressed in an edition of one so, as the label notes, it’s “the rarest Matador release ever.”) The deadline for “blowjob” replacements is 8/23. The winner will be announced 9/15. If you want to make sure your idea works well in context, here’s a video clip featuring all the lyrics:
