About this project

Times is hard huh? Yessir, oh boy, everybody vying for your dollars like you don’t have yr own bills to pay and hungry little childrens to be feeding, and what with little Jimmy getting the sickness last winter things have been tougher than ever, the doctor’s bills keep on coming and meanwhile that pay raise from back in ’02 is just an embarrassing memory, how you had to beg and cry for that pittance, it’s a downright shame, a sorry state of affairs it is, yes indeed, things is tight all over son, tight all over.

But wait... what’s this? Boduf Songs plan to play a tour of Europe, bringing their woeful tales of despair to the huddled continentals? Where is my wallet?! Fetch up my money belt and eBay the goddamn family heirlooms, they is frickin’ ugly and cluttering up the place anyways, and I always loathed that golden phallus bequeathed by old Aunt Elsie. Dirty old Elsie.

And so... we, the aforementioned Boduf Songs, have organised a tour in mainland Europe, but as it eventuates, the operation is going to cost a pretty penny - not least because of lost revenues from day jobs which afford no paid time off, plus the hiring of some sort of automotive transportation, and of course the airfare from the Americas to the motherland. In all sincerity, any financial assistance offered will be received with extreme amounts of gratitude and love and also some stuff. Did I say ‘extreme’? i meant to say “X-TREEM TO THE M-F MAX.” Really.

The latest Boduf Songs album, "This Alone Above All Else In Spite Of Everything" was released by Kranky in 2010, and will be issued on CD by Under The Spire sometime very soon.

    Boduf Songs will become your personal minstrel, following you around and turning your every action into a whimsical ballad of heroic fable and so on. For, like, a week.
