Menomena Signs to Barsuk like Fucking Three Weeks Ago

I thought it was cool to be late with shit and to shit but, apparently, news isn't one of those things. The pricks here at TMT are now expecting us to actually do these news jobbers in a reasonable amount of time. Cunting fucks. Whoop-dee-doo, here's some fucking news.

As was reported on the Barsuk site August 18th, the label has come to terms with its Yankee-esque line-up, and — fkkn-a, there are a lot of hyphens in this write-up — I have brought in the Portland, OR wunderkinds of Menomena on a magic carpet of respect and billows of thick fucking smoke. Following a brief summary of who in the band plays what and where, Barsuk had this to say about its most recent addition,

"We don't know much more about Menomena, except that we're honored to be working with such mysterious and creative individuals, and we can't wait to hear what they come up with next."

Barsuk then stepped in a huge pile of shit and found a $20 bill underneath. Early next year, the relationship will yield Friend and Foe, Menomena's 2nd album and follow-up to 2003's debut, I am the Fun Blame Monster [TMT Review]. The relationship will also yield an upcoming tour with new labelmates What Made Milwaukee Famous (insert Milwaukee joke here) and The Long Winters.

Yeah, I know there are extra caps in these tourdates... what of it?
