Mount Eerie Tour TBA; Let’s Report It Anyway

It should be no surprise to hear that we all hate Mount Eerie here at TMT. Our discerning, discriminating, desultory tastes find Phil Elverum and his music as foul and unpalatable as corked wine. Before writing this story, for example, I handed out half-sheets of paper to the other staffers and asked them to check "like" or "dislike" next to the words "Mount Eerie," and I can say with no exaggeration that all but one was returned with "dislike" checked (sometimes checked and circled). Jay never turned his response in, but there is a bloody piece of paper jammed into the tree outside my apartment with a bowie knife, so I suspect that even he wanted his opinion made public.

Nevertheless, this is a business and not a fanzine, so we're required to report on the exploits of people more suited for death-by-steamroller than musical composition -- people that, in spite of serious deficiencies, have managed to scrape together a few songs and a rental car and now demand publicity. Thus, it is with a heavy heart that I transcribe the following tourdates:

JAYYYYY KAYYYY!!!!! (I was just pissed because Phil's considering not playing anywhere on my birthday, and as you may know, that is a very special day for me. TMT loves Mount Eerie and will forever joyfully report even the most tentative of tours.)
