The Saturday Knights continue to amaze. This is quite possibly the greatest thing I’ve ever heard. Local acts take note:
“There’s a personal quality that’s so unique. As a label, that’s the frustrating thing. How do you show that to the world?”
The answer Light in the Attic has found so far: by matching creativity with creativity. In April, when it came time to present local press with promotional copies of the album, rather than mail generic CDRs, Spencer and Tilson personally accompanied reporters on a listening drive around the city in Tilson’s Land Rover. National media types were recently sent “The Luxury Pamphlet Coloring Book,” an absurdist press release packaged as a 12-page coloring book; TSK-branded, tree-shaped air fresheners; plaid elbow patches (the key to sophisticated, sexy appeal as described in the song “Patches”); and a TSK-branded in-flight meal tray, stocked with a TSK barf bag and towelette, a bag of peanuts and a spork.”

P.S. The Saturday Knights CD Release Party is TONIGHT(!!!) @ Nectar.
