Some exciting news about our record

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Hi all:

Well there have been some developments in Cobra Lilies Land. Our debut, title pending, 4-song EP is back from the pressing plant on lovely 1-sided white 12″ vinyl. Oh it’s so pretty pretty pretty. Sounds quite good too! We are pleased and now must figure out artwork/packaging.

As a result:

We shall have a release show in celebration on Saturday, September 19 at the Highland Park American Legion Hall, presented by the most wonderful Elaine Layabout. We shall also appear live on KXLU’s very own Demolisten the day before to promote the show and also to be awesome.

We are very happy about all of this because this record has taken for frickin’ EVER to get out. I think it’s been almost exactly a year since we began recording sessions in our garage. A YEAR! For four songs. A ha ha ha haaaa. Well, the next one (I hope) will come sooner.

Much love,

Excelsior Lily.

I guess this is clogging, rather than tap dancing, but whatever. Narrative clogging to Harper Valley PTA! Good gravy!

We had less than half of the full band last night–there were times when it was just banjo+drums onstage, with everyone else dancing–but we still had a great time. Thanks to Vaudeville for inviting us, and good luck on your tour, guys.

Some pictures courtesy the one and only Jeff Koga–thanks Jeff!

Last night's colors were FIRE. Excelsior, Arial, Alex, and Alissa Lily. "We look cute," says Arial.

Excelsior Lily attempts to demonstrate a shuffle hop tap step he learned off of youtube.  Arial and Alissa Lily look on dubiously.

The finale--Arial, Alissa, and Ever Lily in clogs for "Shoes Off, Boots On" by Luv'.  Excelsior broke a banjo string and so he plays guitar--the first guitar he ever owned, incidentally.  It's called a Contessa.  Oooooo.  Arlena Lily on drums and Aki Lily on jazz hands.
