The Donkeys: Living On The Others Side

donkeyslost

Look. Here’s the deal: I love LOST (See: my John Locke action figure, Series 1 box set of The Hatch, Dharma Initiative pint glasses) and I hate keeping secrets. It’s just my luck that I would be in on a secret about LOST. A blessing and a curse.

Welp, SPOILER ALERT: The Smoke Monster is actually Carey Mercer.

JK, guyz.

You all everybody’s favorite ’70s rock band from a magical island, Geronimo Jackson, is really Dead Oceans’ very own The Donkeys. The creators of LOST spill all the beans in the new issue of Wired which you can read here. Personally, I’m just glad I can talk about it now. The only thing harder than trying to figure out all the secrets of LOST is actually trying to keep one.

Check out The Donkeys on tour this Spring with WHY? and Deerhoof below:

Hear THE DONKEYS’ Daytrotter Session

If you head on over to the Daytrotter website you can hear the latest session from THE DONKEYS, which premiered on New Year’s Eve. The band laid down four tracks for Daytrotter, including the new song “Nu Blu Stocking.” This sunny slice of SoCal pop is a welcome reprieve from the winter glum, and will almost make you forget if there is snow on the ground.

Listen to The Donkeys’ Daytrotter session HERE.

Also, this morning we added a few new Donkeys tour dates. Look for the band on the West coast on the following dates:

01/27/10 Los Angeles, CA – Echo w/ Rev Peyton’s Big Damn Band
01/28/10 San Luis Obispo, CA – The Crossroads
01/29/10 Santa Cruz, CA – Crepe Place w/ Parson Redheads, Social Studies
01/30/10 San Francisco, CA – Hemlock Tavern w/ Parson Redheads, Social Studies
02/19/10 San Diego, CA – Casbah w/ Joel P West, Red Pony Clock, Hot Moon

New Live Tracks From THE DONKEYS

A nice collection of live tracks from THE DONKEYS is now available for download at the website Luxury Wafers. The site is offering seven songs recorded at Chessvolt studios, including the previously unreleased “Hot Sauce” and “New Blue Stockings.” From the fine folks at Luxury Wafers: “The fat collection of live tracks The Donkeys recorded in the studio unbelievably emit the sunshine of an afternoon outdoor concert. When I listen, my skin softens, it’s warm and bright, there’s no place I have to hurry off to, and perfection is in the moment.”

Listen to the songs and see a photo album from the recording session HERE.

THE DONKEYS Plot Mega-Summer Tour, Share Dates With Magnolia Electric Co.

The music of THE DONKEYS should own your summer activities. It begs you to drink green-bottled beer by it, to break out the Slip-n-Slide, to cut those slacks into short-shorts. Now, the men of The Donkeys are taking their message across the country this summer, sharing a load of dates with fellow neu-classic-rockers Magnolia Electric Co. This should be nothing short of radtastic. Check out all the dates HERE.
