From Flansburgh: "Hi everybody there is a NEW FREE MP3 up! Particle Man - live at XM This highly alt. version was cooked up pretty much on the spot for a kids' show we recorded a few weeks back. (Yes, it is moi, Dr. F, subbin' for DW on the bass, so all bass-accuracy complaints can be made at 1-800-SOIMNOTTHATGOODONTHEBASSLIGHTENUP.) The track was recorded upstairs from the XM Studio at a pretty vibey place called Nola Recording. Word has it Nola is the oldest working recording studio in NYC. Previous recordings by Judy Garland, Charlie Parker, Elvis Costello and evidently this insane, fake-applause-filled aural document by a 13-year old Barbra Streisand:

My Beck profile got pushed back to the 13th due to an overflow of Pope news at Nightline, but they have guaranteed the date now, so reset your Tivos."
