For you, America, a most special treat. Right now the legions of Beret! storm your land. Go see these longtime friends of mine make soul-shattering musical thunder, and see them laugh casually about it, your devastated soul. Go see Beret!...

"Beret! is the notorious group of Americans that became so angry they had no American means of expression and were forced to be reborn by their hate into a world of moustache, wine, cigarette, and stripes. Proclaiming "only Americans need guitars," Beret! is bass, drums and screaming Frenchmen. The stripes, the smoke, the'ten coule."

The new Beret! album Une Tete Pour Deblier will be out soon on Self Core Records. Lose several days of your life on the officious Beret! website.

Travelling with these miscreants is one Cecil Otter, a favorite new person, Cecil Otter, an artist of great northern porportion, Cecil Otter, he of the brain creeping beats and rhymes, Cecil Otter, he of the legendary Minneapolis collective Doomtree, Cecil Otter, he has all the right words and sounds, and he is better than you are. Please check out the sweet Doomtree website. Listen to good stuff at the Doomtree media page.

Cecil Otter will show it to you.

Ask them to and they will stop in your town and play in your bedroom, or in your mom's boyfriend's garage. Do yourself a favor. Go see Beret! and Cecil Otter, and ask them to see the Monster Books. Buy them drinks and they will definitely take you to the van. Tell them that Stone sent you. See them. Hear them. Smell them. They are coming for your young.
