"We are on the bus! The Else hits the road, accompanied by a chihuahua named Lola! Big news on a few fronts - the VINYL album is in record stores (our first vinyl in over a decade) and will be at shows soon, but if you can't wait scroll down for the link! In the recent milestone dep't I think we might have forgotten to mention to you all that our myspace page now has over 50,000 friends, and TMBG were in the NYTimes crossword for the second time this year! Crazy man, crazy!

Okay - off to the radio station we go!
