Talibam! need YOUR help releasing their new record; Euro mini-tour starts tonight (and fast trains that run underwater or fly have to be booked, like, days in advance)!

Six European dates might seem like a skimpy Friday news meal, but Talibam! rarely leaves you unsatisfied. The fact that this tour, the band’s 15th European jaunt, starts tonight in Warsaw, Poland means, to quote, with complete accuracy, everyone’s favorite upstart British beat combo The Cure: “It’s Friday and we’re in love…with Talibam!”

The truth is, Talibam! shows are always unexpected adventures, so it’s an unwritten law that we have to write about them. Likewise, speculating on Matt Mottel and Kevin Shea’s upcoming exploits is essential too, yet taxing, so the best thing for me to do is ask a fellow TMTer to help out. This time around, I’ve got TMT fan favorite E. Nagurney with some important album news:

Talibam! have a new record. It’s called Talibam! Goes to Bed with Sam Kulik and Discovers Atlantis and it’s coming out… sometime via… someone? The group needs somebody to put out the record and, if you happen to have a label, that somebody could be you. If interested, email the band at talibambam@gmail.com. On the fence about the whole thing? Perhaps this preview at the band’s SoundCloud page will convince you. Not to editorialize or anything, but if you have a record label and you can listen to that and not want to put this record out, you’re an idiot.
