On this night 13 years ago I was at the Trash Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, celebrating the release of Your Words, Bought and Sold, the only proper CD that my big, loud rock band at the time, The Sick Passengers, ever finished. This was long before “digital albums” came along, and so we never got around to updating it for the streaming age. Today seems like a fitting occasion to change that. I’d like to invite you all to check out our new Bandcamp page, which offers free downloads of “Your Words,” our early demo (If You Are Not Well, You Will Not Be Left Alone), and a new compilation of live versions — imperfect as they may be — of lost songs we never recorded in the studio, called Cut Outs. For old friends who came to the shows, hopefully this will bring back some good memories. For newer friends, I’m glad to finally be able to share these songs with you — an awful lot of them still make me smile uncontrollably.
