Video and mp3s: Self Righteous Brothers

VIDEO: Self Righteous Brothers, "Sidecar Jesus"

If you're not already a fan of the Self-Righteous Brothers -- which means, for starters, you're not Pitchfork or AOL -- we invite you to partake of this exchange, from a recent interview with

"Jake is way too poppy for his own good, and I’m way too not poppy," Koepke notes. "That's how we get the best out of each other." Hall: "We live together, which makes it easy. I'll come home and find Max in a loincloth with his eyes rolled back in his head, doing some kind of guttural noise. I'll be writing a song and he'll say, 'What if we do this instead of that? Let's put it in extra time and make it go out of key.' And I'll say, 'But that doesn't make any sense. Great, let's try it.' " The two writers split the vocals equally, and they're easy to recognize: Hall has the sweeter voice and Koepke sounds a bit like J. Mascis. Told of the resemblance, he points to a horizontal scar on his neck — the remains of an operation he had last year to remove an aneurysm from his left vocal cord: "It's where I get my Mascis from."

Right, then: sold, yes? Click on the video above, iPod these tracks, and get yer ass to the Baseball Tavern out back of Fenway Park tomorrow night, August 1, to see the live thing, which is, like, insanely insane insanity.
