It seems like a helluva long way to go for 5 shows, but that's what these fine gentlemen will be doing for New Years... heading for Australia. Lucky bastards!
Very nearly one year ago to the day, John Darnielle, offered these two songs on his Mountain Goats website... after good friend (and sometime producer) John Vanderslice, had posted a free live show on his own homepage, Darnielle was prompted to offer a couple of mp3s himself and here they are.
