A couple songs for you, in what we hope to be a regular Merge Blog series of rare/live mp3s:
Destroyer & The Treacherous Fops – The Music Lovers (mp3): Live @ Cats Cradle, Carrboro, NC, July 31, 2004 at the Merge 15th Anniversary Festival.
This cut is culled from the one and only performance to date by The Treacherous Fops–comprised of Mac McCaughan on guitar, Spott on trumpet, Paul Finn on keys, Paul Cardillo on bass, and the incomparable Lee Waters manning the skins. Destroyer is Mr. Dan Bejar.
For non-digital, real life shows near you, check out the Merge Tour Dates.
