Fo [FAUX] Montreal - The Bedtime Drama: A Petite Las Vegas Tragedy

I'll post more about tonight's Of Montreal karaoke show later, including the setlist and some highlights, but I wanted to share this before I crash and burn. I mean, it's 4:30am. I'm not gonna write a lot.

Tonight at the show they had an odd item at the merch booth. They were free for the taking, and they were labeled fo [FAUX] Montreal - The Bedtime Drama: A Petite Las Vegas Tragedy. The cover has a picture of a shirtless Kevin Barnes, a ring of penises (Kevin's, apparently), an inset of the band, and a Bloomin' Onion from Outback Steakhouse. I'm not quite sure who created these things or why, but it's completely strange and has some hilarious moments. Very little of it really needs to be heard -- I'd say just tracks 6-7 and 9 would be sufficient (and even those only for Of Montreal fans). Seriously though, this isn't good music even when it is music. Trust me. Gotta love the tracklist though. Here it is, for the curious:

Fo [FAUX] Montreal - The Bedtime Drama: A Petite Las Vegas Tragedy

1. Kevin goes to Las Vegas where he receives subliminal messages from Satan to get naked 1:16
2. Kevin gets naked and the people exclaim 1:28
3. Satan shreds on lead guitar upon victory 0:47
4. Kevin awakes confused in a casino/hotel bedroom as he tries to remember what happened last night 1:05
5. Kevin's realization (Uh-Oh-PP) 0:25
6. Kevin escapes unwanted media persecution by going to Outback Steakhouse 0:36
7. Satan picks up the tab at Outback and orders for Kevin (Satan shreds) 5:42
8. Kevin feels sick after eating Outback 0:25
9. Kevin feels sick after listening to this concept album and wishes that he could make Tim a girl through use of force 1:46

If file transfers are slooooow, you can grab the whole thing at Sendspace.

And that's that. More on the evening later. Rich need sleep.

UPDATE: The NSFW cover can be seen here.

Well supposedly he agreed to letting Outback use his song when he was having a breakdown and his medication wasn't working. Maybe this is more from that creative period...

He needs to collaborate with Brian Eno. This reminds me of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts.

This is fuckin hilarious. I wonder what involvement Kevin and the band had, it's kind of awesome that they'd sanction giving this away...I mean they've always had a sense of humor but to have fun with all of this drama is admirable/awesome.

Kevin and Bryan were not amused, as you can see in this video:

Wow, great find.

Surprised they didn't know it was out there. I know BP reads the Elephant 6 Townhall boards, and it was posted there at least 2-3 times after the show.
