How are you? Guess what: I'm in LA right now recording a new Do The Undo-album with Jason Falkner! We're doing it with just the two of us and it's pretty exciting. Turns out he knows you quite well. And I remember you sent me some Grays stuff. Jason had heard some Daryll Ann stuff years ago and in 2004 he inivited us backstage to an Air- concert in Amsterdam (he played bass with them for some time) and then we met. And now - 4 years later - we're joining forces. Just wanted to let you know.
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching. It unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. The money powers preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me & the financial institutions at the rear, the latter is my greatest foe. Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed." -Abraham Lincoln, (letter to William Elkins, Nov 21, 1864)
