In September 2009 the Flaming Lips invited us to play at the All Tomorrow’s Parties New York festival which they curated. We wanted this show to be something special so we put together a 15 piece band including all of our friends – Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Luke Lalonde (Born Ruffians), Koushik Ghosh (Koushik), John Schmersal (Enon, Brainiac), a five piece horn section, four drummers and Sun Ra Arkestra band current leader and legend Marshall Allen

NOVELS are Graham Wright (Tokyo Police Club), Luke Lalonde (Born Ruffians), Will Currie (Will Currie & The Country French), Dean Marino (Ex~po), Jason Sadlowski (Jay Sad).

“NOVELS won’t be sold in CD stores, on the internet, or anywhere else. Instead, we’ll give them away, or put them places. Maybe you’ll find a copy sitting on a park bench. Maybe a masked man will hand you one as he passes you on the street. Maybe none of these things will happen. But we’ll make sure that everyone gets a chance to listen if they want to.”
