Michele got her Shards vol 1.  And here's your Dr. Frank Weakly Briefing, vital information of astoundingly informational vitality, all the unmissable stuff you missed, screaming into the void and making shoes for snakes since mid-'85.  Thank you.  — “Stop worrying and love MTX. MTX will never leave you baby...”    — Shards news: Dibs for Shards vol. 2 start next week, so get ready. The Sounds Rad stock of Shards vol.1 is well and truly “kicked”, though you can still probably find one in a store (e.g. Amoeba). Plus I have a few left that I’ll bring to the shows, but when they’re gone, they’re gone, and they’re almost gone, seriously.     — MTX / Nerf Herder / Kepi Ghoulie shows are next week! Friday 7/27 Bottom of the Hill (SF) and 7/28 Troubadour (LA). Tix still available (see links) but going fast, folks.   — Let Kepi/Lemmy tell you all about it.  — And check me out on Mutiny Radio, Saturday, July 21… it’s gonna be an interview and a live acoustic song or two, along with Lyrics Born. More info here.  — Rachel won some stuff from the Mable Syndrome podcast, including Shards vol. 1 signed by me. Check out the podcast here. (Here's where they did me.)  — The Mr. T Experience, chunks of two songs live at Cloyne Court, Berkeley, September 1995. (“Last Time I Listened to You” and “I Love You but You’re Standing on My Foot”).  — Minor secrets of chunks of two songs live at Cloyne Court, Berkeley, September 1995.   — Just a pic of MTX at Spaceland, ca 2003.   — Yes darling, but is it art? Ruminations on art, music, Dan Treacy, New Day Rising, and the power and glory of false data.   — Remember the Lookout / Punk Planet flexi?     — Sophie still has her Dr Frank box. — just a lovely pic of Jane Birkin.  — Lemmy quits Hawkwind.  — Your Friday morning “Hitler” from Two Guys with 12 Strings.  — Covers playlist. — Check out more stuff on the Dr Frank youtube channel. That's it.  See ya next week.… more
