Converting Condos

New London via Brooklyn band Conversion Party have gone out of their way to generate some free publicity for themselves over at the Mata-blog. The band has created a virtual dust-up with the Yo La Tengo one-off cover crew Condo Fucks for dissing their scene (or one of their scenes, half their scene, something like that) by launching a weblog called Fuck The Condo Fucks. Not shying away from brazen acts of publicity, the band even managed to tell Gerard Cosley, the founder of Matador Records and friendly blog commenter, to fuck off. If this don't get them signed, don't know what will!

Meanwhile the Condo Fucks will make a "rare" appearance on WMFU March 24:

To commemorate next Tuesday’s release of the long-awaited Condo Fucks LP/CD, ‘Fuckbook’, the fearsome threesome of Kid Condo, Georgia Condo and James McNew have recorded a live set for Joe Belock’s “Three Chord Monte” program, to be aired that same day, March 24 between 12-3pm. You can listen online at WFMU.org, or in the greater NYC area on 91.1 FM.
