acoustic, shine
Hi all! Just wanted to say, for the last month or so some friends and I have been working on a brand new Brendan Benson site, by the fans for the fans and we'd really love it if you'd check it out and let us know what you think.

Brendan Benson Online

It isn't complete yet, but we finally deemed it ready for the most important people to see (that's you, the fans!) All work on the design and construction of the website itself was done by onetenzeroseven (humble maintainer of this community) while moral support and added content came from myself, jasminfcc and our other non-LJ using associate!! There's a gallery, beginner's guide and all sorts of press and videos from the archives to keep you entertained, and maybe even help spread the word about Brendan's music to other people.

Sorry for posting this everywhere, we're just keen to spread the BB love!

Misc; hear me calling you from deep down
In case you missed it, our Brendan B. did a Daytrotter session back in October. You can download the tunes free here.

Tracks include: Sucked Out (Superdrag cover), A Whole Lot Better, Feel Like Taking You Home, and Don't Wanna Talk.

Brendan Benson walked up our three flights of staircase after having just ridden overnight from New York City where he and his crack ensemble had begun a short tour with an appearance on Late Night With David Letterman. He carried with him only one thing. Between the fingers, in his right hand, was a single wine glass that was a long ways from home.

I aquired the 7" during my search for the delayed album release last Monday, I didn't even have a clue this was being released, I thought the single was 'A Whole Lot Better'! Anyways, it sounds STUNNING on vinyl, it was made to be played on a record player. GUH. Oh and the b-side is 'Playdown'. Get yours grabbed!
