Major Stars, the band CMJ recently described as “notorious” for some reason, have announced they are releasing their latest album on Drag City. The decision makes them labelmates with such zeitgeist-tapping luminaries as the Nig Heist.
Last night on MythBusters, they figured out that it’s way more efficient to turn your lights off when you leave the room than to leave them on.
Major Stars also has a short tour planned for next month and will be sure to turn the lights off before they leave.
MythBusters engineered their biggest explosion to date in the name of “Busting” ™ -- the myth that the shockwave from an explosion will break a dummy’s 500-foot fall. Something went wrong with the dummy, but they were still pretty sure it wouldn’t work.
Major Stars have never made a mistake like that.
The episode of MythBusters I watched was almost certainly a rerun. Major Stars have never done anything twice.
I couldn’t think of anything to write for this piece, and now it’s edging closer and closer to Chuck-Norris-Joke territory. Just go see Major Stars and buy their new record. Their shows are drunken catastrophes of the highest order and maybe if you leave the house and expand your mind, you’ll learn something for once, etc, etc.
