Itís finally here (or coming to your attention)! This freaky little beast that be is the new Takeovers release the "Little Green Onion Man" EP. A nice mini-movie comprised of 4 songs (one from the Bad Football album-the other 3 are unreleased Robert Pollard compositions) that warmly straddles the loosey-goosey psych-pop sounds of their first album, Turn To Red as well as the white knuckled rock pomp of their second (Bad Football). From the spooky freak-beat of "Rich Manís Girl" to the Ann Arbor beating that "Wigstomper 07" dishes out you might not want to listen to this in the dark. But it makes us happy. Also along for the drive is John Moen of Stephen Malkmus/The Decemberists, Sam Coomes of Quasi/Blues Goblins and Brian Berg of 44 Long to join the boys as they take you on a tight little visit of their twisted lop-sided tunage. It'll be pressed in a limited edition of 950 CDs and 950 copies of 7" vinyl (500 of the vinyl will be handnumbered and available only through this lovely website!) Did we mention itís also being licensed from the fine folks over at Happy Jack Rock Records?


Thank you all for your patience.........due to health issues and other fun-i-ties the Little Green Onion Man EP (or LGOMEP for those who have a computer) has finally been finished and it's a doozy! It'll contain four songs to make you weep and a album cover to put under your soft pillow. It'll be pressed in a limited edition of 1000 CDs and 950 copies of 7" vinyl (500 which will be handnumber and available only through the Off Website). We are talking to our pressing plants, distributors etc. about when this puppy will be out but keep checking back for ordering info--toot sweet. Again thanks for all the kind words and votes on our lonely band and we hope you'll like this forthcoming straddle of rock that we're releasing.
