I was just about to make a news post about this.

And way to misspell his name. :smackhim:

Can we get an unreleased song as a birthday gift?

NoGaypnkNamLikU 08/06/12 09:55 AM

Can we add another T to his name, please?

Happy birthday, Elliott.

His indie label, Kill Rock Stars is supposed to release some. A few days ago they released "Alameda (Alternate Version)" which is a different mix with some alternate instrument arrangements and alternate lyrics. If you sign up for their newsletter, they'll e-mail you an alternate mix of "Needle in the Hay" with trumpets and double tracked vocals. It might actually be cool to add that to the news article.

His music has helped me through a lot of troubled times. I don't know how I would cope without his music.
