The secret’s out: Red Pandas love coffee.

It’s always coffee time chez Detective.
Strictly speaking, this isn’t Détective business as such, so file under tangential activity:
Relatively short notice, but for Los Angeles-area residents, Détective guitarist/singer James Greer will be discussing Eric Erlandson’s new book Letters to Kurt at Skylight Books on Thursday, March 29. All the information you could ever want and more can be found by clicking here.
Eric was co-founder of the band Hole, as we probably don’t need to tell you, and as such has seen his share of rock madness from a probably too-close perspective. Letters to Kurt takes the form of 52 prose poems addressed, however obliquely, to Kurt Cobain, and the writing process was clearly a kind of cathartic experience for Eric. James looks forward to
taking apart his fragile psyche discussing the book with him Thursday. If you’re around, please do come out.
Le poète Ghérassim Luca détournait les vieilles photographies qu’il achetait au Marché aux puces. Il les disposait dans un ordre subtil en y ajoutant des textes ou des collages. Il constituait ainsi des albums qui racontaient quelquefois une histoire et qui étaient tous différents les uns des autres. L’album que nous publions ici a été fait par Ghérassim Luca en ajoutant de petits collages sur des photos d’indiens du Brésil.(http://www.usine102.fr/?/Editions/empreintes/)

During our recent appearance on the wildly popular podcast Hugs and Disses, we performed a Guided By Voices song from the album Alien Lanes called “As We Go Up We Go Down.” The song is now available for you to watch on the YouTube. James would like to point out that due to the vagaries of podcasting and/or radio sessions in general, the vocal level in his headphones was really high so he thought he was singing a lot louder than he really was, which if you ask me is a lame excuse, but there you have it.
This was the first song James recorded with his old band. He sang harmonies and played bass on the original version. He is doing neither here.
