On May 24, we bash our chalices together in celebration of the release of the new Soft Speaker album, Turkish Mindbathers, on translucent, light pink, 180 gram vinyl. These recordings meld the intense, red-drape violence of Peekaboo and His Boys with the bleary-eyed, 5am fry-down groove of The Armadillo Handlers of Mexico City. Lessons were learned from the rise, corporate sell-out and fall of Flashy Larry and The Lotion Boys. And here’s to Little Boysenberry Boy and his Boo-Boys, who preached the gospel of promiscuity until their hamburger shacks could take no more.
