First there was the album release party, where I was nearly murdered by a crazed animal rights activist. The loss of touring income while I lay in a coma for 8 weeks nearly put an end to Attractive Eighties Women. Then, when our hit single "Murder Kroger" led to a lawsuit from the Kroger corporation just six months later, I thought we'd truly hit rock bottom. There's nothing like losing a prolonged court battle to the tune of $25,000,000 USD to make you truly question your DIY punk rock ethos.
However, from those dark days of despair, we emerged triumphant thanks to your unceasing support. When "Gonna Throw a Party (When You Die)" was featured during the closing credits of Pixar's Up, it seemed we'd finally turned a corner. Since then, it's been a roller coaster ride of drinking, drugs and Hollywood excess, culminating in our recent record-setting night at the 2012 People's Choice awards. And throughout all of this, there's always been one constant in our lives...
You. The fans.
We want to thank you for all the support you've given us over the years. Whether it was just showing up for a show, buying a t-shirt or album, sharing a link with your friends, or waiting in line for over 36 hours so you could be in the first row of our sold-out homecoming concert at Phillips Arena last February, you've always been there for us. Without our fans, Attractive Eighties Women would merely be one of the most talented and amazing bands in history. Thanks to you we're one of the most talented and amazing and successful bands in history! We couldn't have done it without you.
As a small gesture of our gratitude, today we are releasing a full length video of our entire first album, which was recorded at Fat Back Sound Studios in Sandy Springs. For the first time ever, you can watch the entire recording session FREE in beautiful standard def! Were you there on that day, so many years ago? Try and spot yourself in the crowd and know that you were a part of rock n' roll history. You helped make my private jet possible.
We're also slashing prices on both of our albums online. You can now download Coup D'é Ta-Ta's or The Ancient Cry of the Tyrannosaur for only $5 each. That's $2 off the original price! I know, I know. We really are too generous. But goddammit, you deserve it!
Thanks again. Y'all are the best.

Hello, ladies and germs!
It's time once again to kick out the jams. The Clermont Lounge is hosting a rock n' roll throwdown on April Fools Day, with a lineup that must be seen to be believed.
First up is the reunion of Athens, GA's own Drunk and Furious, the world's most offensive band. These guys are some of our oldest friends. The only time I ever actually puked on someone's dog, it was at the lead singer's house. They haven't played a show in five years, but now that Johnny Swanson (banjo) is out of jail, they're trying to pick up where they left off. They just can't legally play within 500 yards of a church or school... making the Clermont the perfect location to stage their comeback.
Next, we have the best band in Atlanta that isn't us... The Vaginas! Hope this email makes it past your spam filter. We haven't played with these guys in a while, but if any of you remember the last time (unlikely!) you know you're in for a treat. With so many cops on furlough, we're hoping there won't be a repeat of the tear gas/taser incident. Did you know that "inciting a riot" is a crime?
Then, the final strike in this liver-punching combo, Attractive Eighties Women hit the stage! As you all know, we're the kind of music people listen to while making bad decisions... What better place to make bad decisions than the Clermont Lounge? If one of you doesn't leave this show with an STD (that you didn't have before you got there), then frankly, we're not doing our jobs. We'll be playing a few new songs, along with all the old classics. Maybe we'll even bring back the plunger game, if you guys promise to behave.
They're not selling any advance tickets to the show, so get there early. Quite a few folks were shut out of our last gig. Don't let this happen to you! We're damned popular, and the Clermont isn't any bigger than 529. To get into the show, all you need is $7, two condoms, and a brandy snifter full of green M & M's. See you there!
PS - There's been a lot of discussion about this on our message board, and we just want to set the record straight. We prefer our female fans to wear bras with front clasps. I don't know who decided bras should fasten in the back, but it wasn't a 15 year old boy, I can tell you that much.
