Throw Me the Statue Take Away Shows: Lolita/About to Walk

Odds are that if you noticed that I continue to pump Throw Me the Statue and longtime high school/MixMatchMusic friend Scott Reitherman of El Granada and Crystal Springs Uplands, you’ve probably come to the realization that I’m not going to stop now. As hinted at in “Take Me Away,” three Take-Away shows by TMTS and hosted by La Blogotheque were released yesterday. “Lolita,” the reigning choice for first single, “About to Walk,” and a Guided By Voices cover of “My Valuable Hunting Knife” were all released. I think the simplistic style worked both positively and negatively in these videos…it helped bring the persona of the band and the laid back attitude they carry to the masses, at the same time it’s a bit less polished in the performance. But what do you expect acoustically on a ferry crossing the Puget Sound? And they’ve all already blown up…close to 1,000 views of each video within 24 hours. Be on the lookout for Scott and TMTS at the Great American Music Hall next Thursday, the 28th, in San Francisco.
