Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Downloads Available Now

If one is so inclined, one can go to CDBaby and listen to samples or download individual songs (or the whole album) from BIG BUSINESS MONKEY, VOLUME SIX. I'm not sure if BBM6 is available on streaming services yet.

You know something, I'm not sure how much sympathy I have anymore for brick and mortar stores that complain about online companies (such as, obviously, Amazon) taking away their business. I drove into Harrisonburg yesterday (population of about 54,000 with an additional 22,000 college students) to look for the new Breeders album (which is getting pretty much universal acclaim), and despite going to every store that I knew of that still sold compact discs, no one had it for sale. So I went online to Amazon. It was selling for $13 with free shipping (I belong to Amazon Prime, which pays for itself with free shipping alone), so I ordered it. Turned out I had enough points credit that the thing was free! So I'm getting the new Breeders album for $0.00. Now, I don't buy compact discs much anymore (in fact, seldom if ever) but the next time I want to do so I won't bother going into town.

"I hate the misconception that I joined a band and became a heroin addict. I started shooting up when I was a teenager. I was a practicing alcoholic in my day job; I was working in a computer company. I had top-secret clearance for what I was doing, and I was turning up for work in the same clothes I had worn the day before, having stayed up all night on ecstasy." -- Kelley Deal
