Langdon Alger at Wahlbar, Manchester, August 2014.

James Clayton aka Crywank dresses up as a Simpsons character to play songs about stalking Lisa Simpson and talk about misogynistic representations of women and relationships in the media. It’s… weird.

Hey can you send me tabs?
What’s nostril tampon about?
When are you gonna play Australia/America?
Are you gonna do any physical releases?

I love messages so much but I think I need to do an faq. My ask is backed up with these four questions repeated!

Anonymous said: do u get a lot of fan art? b/c I think more bands should get cool drawings n stuff

I sometimes do and I love getting it. I probably see more cover songs than fanart but I always try and reblog whatever people make. When I was younger I used to cover my drawings with Sufjan Stevens, Okkervil River and Joni Mitchell lyrics, so it’s really humbling when I see people doing that with my lyrics!!

Anonymous said: i heard you used to post about yr music on /mu/. do you still browse 4chan.

I posted my music twice on /mu/ asking for feedback. I used to use it for sharethreads to find links to old psych albums. I don’t really have the time/desire to go on there anymore.

That’s obviously a lie though. It’s a well known fact that /mu/ is the best place on the whole of the internet to promote your music. That’s why myself, Dads, Giles Corey, Jordaan Mason, Thomas Diaz and all of Death Grips work together collectively to promote our music on there. Everytime you see any of our bands mentioned on there, it’s actually one of us posting asif we where a fan of our music to trick everyone. We all had to resort to this as websites like, bandcamp, tumblr and music blogs in general where having no effect whatsoever in promoting our music online. It’s also a well known fact that touring and word-of-mouth have no effect on getting your name out. If you’re a struggling musician stop wasting time trying to practice your instrument and get better, just make sure your band name is sometimes mentioned on 4chan and watch as you suddenly get thousands of listeners.

Get Sad, Stay Rad, Reject Cool, Be Nice!
