because cool kids are boring

The ghost of dead teenagers

with one comment

So, one of the things that Courtney dropped on me when she visited last week was a bunch of stuff by the NY band My Favorite. The recordings came with a warning of sorts that went something like, ‘every some what Christian person I turn onto My Favorite ends up becoming more obsessed with them then I am.’ Or something like that. Well, while I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with them, they have quickly become one of my favorite new finds.

Unfortunately, the band broke up back in ’05.

While My Favorite isn’t around anymore, the band’s primary song writer, Michael Grace Jr., does have a new band called A Secret History. History had their first public show at the beginning of March at the Cake Shop in NYC. While doing a little digging this evening I came across these clips from the show.

Our Lady of Stalingrad

Our Lady of Pompeii

And for good measure, here’s a clip shot by Courtney herself,

Needless to say, I will be keeping an eye out for these guys in the future. And if Courtney goes to see them again with out at least giving me the chance to tag along, I may have to have words with her.
