Xiu To A Kill

Posted in Xiu Xiu by M on January 6, 2007

[A text message exchange between your two authors on October 2, 2006, concerning the cover of Xiu Xiu‘s The Air Force.]

M: Xiu Xiu played the crying Jesus card! Is this a shark jump?

Fleser: Actually, I have the album and haven’t listened to it yet, because I just stare at the cover. That’s how much I like it.

M: All right, but after bleeding Jesus there’s nowhere to go but sad kittens on the next cover.

Fleser: You forgot bleeding kittens.

    Um, how did you remember this conversation? And I think it should be “Sad Kittenz.” Those folks like whimsy folded in with the despair.

    I thought this was a spoken conversation, too, but then I found the text messages on my phone. Yay transparent society!

    And I just took my first serious look at that Xiu Xiu weblog. It’s like it’s written by Pokey the Penguin!
