Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives: Maybe you know e from eels. Most people (other than Sticherbeast) probably did not know his father was once a rock star physicist who first conceived of parallel universes (not that Neils Bohr was impressed). Last night, BBC4 aired a documentary on the trails both men followed.
"All In A Day's Work" is the first track on the new Eels CD Shootenanny (released June 3rd on Dreamworks). The band is previewing new tracks from the album every Tuesday, flogging a new live CD from the Electro-Shock Blues era, completely sold out of its previous web only release Oh What A Beautiful Morning, did soundtrack work for Ed Solomon's Levity (starring Billy Bob Thorton) and are hyping the mysterious MC Honky's CD I Am The Messiah, which features producer Mickey Petralia, drummer Joey Waronker, Butch, Koool G Murder and Li'l 'Fer (video for "Sonnet #3 (Like a Duck)").
“London, from one end to the other, teems and steams with eels, alive and stewed; turn where you will, hot eels are everywhere smoking away, with many a fragrant condiment at hand to make what is in itself palatable yet more savoury; and this too at so low a rate, that for one halfpenny a man of the million may fill his stomach with six or seven long pieces, and wash them down with a cupful of the glutinous liquor in which they have been stewed.”
The robot with the mind of an eel. Doesn't this scare you just a little bit?
