Ex-Guru

Postby francey on October 17th, 2008, 1:53 pm

I came across a 2-track promo CD with a David Byrne track on it I didn't know before - it's called "Ex-Guru" and apparently this is a cover of a song by the Fiery Furnaces and recorded for a 7" single boxset released by Thrill Jockey last year.

Does anybody have this boxset...? Is it worth getting...?

I was looking for this for a while without success. I seem to recall the track being available to stream online however. I'm sure I heard it and liked it but then, as life is, forgot about it.
Worthy of some searching methinks......... ;)

The sticker on the jacket of the promo CD says: "these exclusive promotional tracks from the 7" boxset [...] are not available on CD anywhere else other than here".
