Starting to get excited for the 10/30 Monsters Of Folk show at The Auditorium and meant to share a quick piece from Time Out Chicago.
The Jim James breakdown of the MOF tune, "Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.)
People said they thought it was XTC’s “Dear God.” That’s why we put in the parentheses. I still haven’t heard that XTC song. I need to.
When we went on tour, it was originally just billed as Conor, Jim, etc. We jokingly called it the “monsters of folk.” When we decided to do an album we were hell-bent on finding a real name. We were gonna call it “Monsters.” But it always sounded like we were taking ourselves too seriously.
There’s a record store in Nashville, Grimey’s. Grimey turns me on to stuff and told me about Numero Group’s reissues. There’s a couple other ones I got, but the Good God one just blew me away. There’s never been a record I listened to so much.
Read the entire Yim Yames breakdown.
Anybody else headed to the Chicago 10/30 show? Dressing up?
