Chris, Gerard and Patrick

Today marks the 21st anniversary of our first release on Matador, the “Shaker” 7-inch.  Our heartfelt thanks to Gerard, Chris, Patrick, and everyone at the label, past and present.  We marked the fifteenth anniversary by playing in the then-empty McCarren Pool in Brooklyn.  We brought a horn section for the set openers “Mr. Tough” and a cover of Bobby Freeman’s “C’mon and Swim” (co-written by Sly Stone), and encored by joining forces with Titus Adronicus to salute  NJ with “Where Eagles Dare.”
