New Jayhawks in the Fall

I so don’t want to rush our precious Chicago summer away, that I hesitate to even think about anything that is happening beyond August.  However, a new Jayhawks album coming out in September will be a pretty sweet welcome into the fall season.

Check out the band’s brief description of what to expect from the upcoming Louris/Olson-led Mockingbird Time, including a complete track listing, at

Here’s a preview from the site.  Sounds like Gary Louris is on the mark when saying “This is a record for a true Jayhawks fan who loves Tomorrow The Green Grass.”  What do you think?

Attention Ladies: From now on, if you happen to spot any strategically placed Hot Wheels around an adult male’s bedroom, you might want to keep your clothes on.

That was probably already good advice. But even more so now, unless you want to grab some great “action footage”. (I don’t judge.)

Maybe that says more about the warped way my mind works, but still. I’m just sayin’…
