2013: Our freshest album, we recorded it for Mexican Summer Records in their own deluxe studio, using 2-inch tape, vintage tube-amps and the unwavering artistic vision of Jarvis Traverniere of Woods and Rear House fame. We made it the old fashioned way with demos and different takes and stuff like that, that we've never had the attentions span to do before. We played each song over a hundred times before recording, so that we could re-structure the parts and lyrics to reach their absolute potential for devastation in the mind of the listener. Don't worry, we still found time to include our signature "dust-cloud" moments and it sounds like a real happy jawbone album. It's just different so that we don't get bored. And if we don't get bored, you don't get bored. Get it in either 12" LP, CD or download format:

2013. Happy Jawbone Family Band's greatest flops! For this release we collected all our favorite songs from past releases that no one ever heard of and we gave them to Mexican Summer Records so they could get people to listen to them and now they aren't really flops anymore. These are the songs that I keep tacked to my inner-most walls. Get the 12" LP or the download here:

Pitchfork review:

7. The Silk Pistol

1. the wrong wings
2. there's too much blood in the attic today
3. livin foul
4. break so slow
5. that cruel thimbleful
6. little miss sayonara
7. self-immolation for beginners
8. oops, there's bugs all in my heart
9. deep dreamer
10. be good to your gun
11. i never should have died alone

2012: This is a concept album about a guy who turns into a pillow and now must walk the world in shame. Also he has a glass tongue so he can never kiss the girl he likes, and then there's always this silk pistol hot against his chest. It looks like a snub-nose .38 revolver. It sounds like a snubnose .38 revolver. But, it doesn't act like a snub nose .38 revolver! This little pistol doesn't shoot anything. It vanishes silks! And, it looks wonderful ... just like real magic! Drape a 12" silk over the chrome barrel of this little gun! Pull the trigger. Bang! The silk is gone!! In a wink it has vanished! You can make it re-appear in a Crystal Silk Box; in a Twentieth Century Silk; or just about anywhere you like! The Silk Pistol uses the same high-quality mechanism as the Viennamagic Ink Goblet, so you know it is quality, and made to last. buy it here:

2011. The personal favorite album of most of the band itself, this album is designed to be a revival of the true rock and roll holiday tradition. That being said, it's not for everyone. If you are turned off by skits about mice in reggae bands and tearful sagas about Jewish reindeers then you should probably check out a different album. Also don't worry, it's not a religious album and there's only one traditional x-mas song, 'Deck the Halls with Gasoline.' The rest are originals or covers of x-mas songs you've probably never heard, unless you are a x-mas music nerd like us.

2011. I learned everything I need to know about midnight's cruel pass-times from OK MIDNIGHT YOU WIN. Big sound. Sounds like 2011 but bigger. Recorded with big-time mics by a real pro. Minimum dust cloud. Maximum fever. Even people with bad taste are thrilled with that midnight suckerpunch. It hits like a half ton of silk. Get it in either 12" LP or CD format from FEEDINGTUBE RECORDS at:

2010. More rock and roll classics from the hotel that we have come to adore! Some people say they like it better than the original. You be the judge. But watch out! Pretty soon you'll start feeling like a burning building. You're gonna get so soft! You're fading away!

2010. The Hotel Double Tragedy is constantly burning. You will be too with these new hits from the family! Simply listen to the album at a decent volume and watch your life fall apart. We were thinking of releasing this album under the pretense that it was found under the bed of a dead priest who was the grandfather of a couple of members of the Vaselines, but we thought better of it. You deserve the TRUTH! You deserve magic in POP ATTITUDE! You deserve ONE ANCIENT JANGLE! In ten seconds FLAT! You deserve HOTEL DOUBLE TRAGEDY! Get one today for yourself or for someone you care about. Our original release of gold 12" LPs from Feeding Tube records sold out, but they recently re-released it in DOUBLE 12" LP format with the Return of Hotel Double Tragedy as the Complete Hotel Double Tragedy, including a free download of both albums as well as an album of outtakes and a choose-your-own adventure book.

2009.This album is a little better than ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE CANDY MACHINE, though they're basically the same album. 40 songs, 40 excuses for a bath-time suicide mission. A true expression of rock and roll burning lifestyle. This album goes good with a switchblade and bad grades. Often people are reminded of the guitar solo in BACK TO THE FUTURE PARTS I & II where Marty McFly starts to disappear because his past is being erased. Our first run of tapes on SPOOKY TOWN ARTIFACTS sold out in 2011, but then I REMASTERED the whole album, stuck some brand new extra art on it and put it out as a CDR on BLUEBERRY HONEY. Get it here:

2009. Our first album and companion to FAMILY MATTERS, it also has 40 songs and even less talent! It features a pop sensibility gone wrong, and the song FRESH GASH as seen on RUSSIAN MTV. {} It hits like a swarm of locusts but then it turns out it's a real softie. My mom says she thinks she might like it. Sold out at faux-pas records! Buy now at unread records in CASSETTE TAPE format here:
