Old chums and videomates Zach and Fiona make a promo. “Up In Them Guts” comes to us via the giving hands of the ever-great Chunklet magazine which — after a three year wait — is set to release its 20th issue. This “ultra-danceable track” is one side of a Chunklet-commissioned 7″ that pairs perfectly with the mag’s new installment: both feature Galifianakis, and both also feature a primer on trans-Atlantic translations of various vagina slang. Well at least the song does. Come over and get it.
I think we all learned a little something about fannies and the UK today. If you angled your ears just so you also should have heard track contributions from Horrible People mastermind AD Miles, as well as all-around mastermind Jon Brion. On the flip of the “Up In Them Guts” 7″ is Ted Leo + Pharamacists doing “Rock’n’Roll Dreams’ll Come Through,” which got its wings via The Best Show on WFMU (and was featured on Tom Scharpling and Jon Wuster’s New Hope For The Ape-Eared CD).
Order the single here (first 500 get a picture disc), although the rules clearly state: “Available only with purchase (of something other than the single) at chunklet.com.” One suggestion: the long-awaited new issue. Details:
In this, the 20th issue of Chunklet (20 issues, 15 years!), it promises to be the most brutal issue yet. Featuring interviews with Paul F. Tompkins, Zach Galifianakis, Jon Glaser and Sublime Frequencies. There are also features involving Whirlyball with Arcade Fire, The Shins, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Lips, Deerhunter, Death Cab for Cutie, Mogwai and countless others. Features also on music journalists, drug appreciation, good guys/bad bands and the usual array of Chunklet insanity (or inanity depending on your outlook).
If not/in addition, check Henry Owings’ Rock Bible, which is a “rulebook … full of dos and don’ts for musicians, wannabe musicians, and rock fans of all ages” and features essays from Patton Oswalt, Brian Teasley, and Andrew Earles. Whatever you decide, don’t be confused: vaginas are the same all over the world.
UPDATE: It should be noted that the track first popped in ’06, which is probably why Zach’s all about sucking it off 2006 style.
