GUESS WHAT! IT’S CONTEST TIME!!!
We’re teaming up with Polyvinyl Records to offer a select few shiny new VINYL copies of Fred Thomas‘ incredible, devastating, beautiful, perfect new album All Are Saved as prizes to a handful of lucky radio station reps! All you have to do to enter this contest is send me your answers to the three below questions (which should all be easy enough to figure out if you’ve been paying attention, hint hint) and include your name as well as your station’s name and mailing address in case you win. Answers must be submitted by the end of the day on Tuesday, May 26th.
1. Fred has lived in the Pacific Northwest and NYC, but which state does he proudly call his original (and current) home?
2. Track 4 on All Are Saved is entitled “Cops Don’t Care Pt. II”. Which of Fred’s previous projects released Pt I of this loose series?
3. What does Fred memorably imagine “everyone we know collectively vomited up a pile of” in “Bad Blood” (track 6)?
**bonus for extra credit in case of a tie: tell us which of Fred’s many previous bands or projects (excluding the current album, the obvious #1 answer) is your favorite, and why.
You must be a current/active representative of a college/non-commercial radio station and submit your answer via email by the end of the day on 5/26 to enter.
