¡Viva Fangio!

Marty con Fangios

Pictured above with the fruits of his labors is illustrator nonpareil Marty Davis, perhaps the only person in the world capable of generating persuasive likenesses of both myself and Juan Manuel Fangio, from memory, and without question the only person capable of morphing them into the iconic visual punnery you see here. These are the records; this is the album. They turned out fucking amazing. They look and feel ridiculously great. So stoked! Go to Fayettenam and get yours! (The shirt is a prototype. Stay tuned.)

I want that dang shirt.

The back of the 7″ (and shirt) really *does* look like a vintage manual for a car. Love that kind of illustrative style— so cool. And props for Fangio rising from the dead through some bizarre Borges inspired deus ex machina. Next: Fangio, Aleph Army of Vengence— murderous Golems driving incredible sports cars.

Too late to hope/root for an Edwardian Gray interlude next Thursday? Jp.

Pete, y’re too kind. It’s an honor to be associated with this fine production. Scott at Fayettenam and the printers did a phenomenal job (as did Pete).

Seriously people, the final product blew my doors off (that’s a racing term for “raised a great astonishment in my heart”).

Viva vinyl! Viva Fangio!

I love the illustration on the back of the 7″. Also, it seems like there ought to be bumper stickers before t-shirts, you know? My (unsolicited) idea for such a thing: http://bit.ly/bfZu09
