Original Release Info: Robert's current guitar and keyboard player for his live band is none other than Tommy Keene - a talented songwriter who has enjoyed success over the years as a solo artist. Mastering the genre of power pop (I although I read somewhere that Tommy hates using the P - P term), Tommy has been making seminal classics for as long as Mr. Pollard. Here, on the first Keene Brothers record, the two connect for a creamy set of pop/rock songs just in time for the summer. These tracks sound large and full and dynamic and catchy. It really is a perfect blend of a Tommy Keene record and your favorite Pollard recording.

Additional Luna Info: Big day! I have just added 4 new Fading Captain Series titles below. All of them will be released throughout the month of May (some in stores, some are mailorder / tour only). However, when you place your order through RobertPollard.net and LUNA music, we will ship everything together during the first week of May, saving you multiple trips to your local record store. Due to production times, only the CD VERSIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN MAY. THE LP'S WILL FOLLOW BY ONE MONTH. If you order both CD AND VINYL your order will ship at TWO DIFFERENT times. The CD's first and the VINYL second. The only vinyl that will be available immediately is the "Love Is Stronger Than Witchcraft" 7" - this will ship with the CD versions of the new releases.

Original release info from RobertPollard.net: Bob has three new side projects that will be released in May. Psycho and the Birds, The Takeovers and Keene Brothers are the newest additions to the Fading Captain family. Psycho and the Birds is a new collaboration with Todd Tobias. Bob records songs boombox style and sends them to Todd to dress them up. The Takeovers is a collaboration with former GBV bass player Chris Slusarenko. Chris enlists some of his friends from the Northwest to help out (Sam Coomes - Quasi; Dan Peters - Mudhoney just to name a couple). The Keene Brothers is a collaboration project with Bob and Tommy Keene. It's pure pop magic when those two get together. The 3 LPs will be released every other week starting on May 2nd Ordering details on the LPs will be coming shortly.
