For Those About To Blog… 13 July 2009



We’re home in Toronto now, taking a brief vacation before we reconvene next week to start working on the second batch of songs for the new record.  We’re going to write for a while, and then return to New York in the fall to do some more recording.  And then we’ll be finished.  Or, at least, thats the plan…

Theres no internet at our rehearsal space, so I don’t know how much blogging will get done for the next little while, but I’m sure we’ll post random inanities here and there, so watch this space!  And, of course, when we go back to the studio we’ll start blogging, vlogging, and generally logging our progress.  We’re playing a few shows this summer too, so come say hi if you’re in the neighborhood.

We’ll talk soon, but in the meantime all of us here at Tokyo Police Club say have a happy summer and keep your stick on the ice.

Your pal,

Basket-blog 8 July 2009


So, as you’ve probably guessed by now, we here at Tokyo Police Club are pretty much athletic dynamos.  From hockey to equestrian, from fishing to triathlon, from lawn bowling to regular bowling, our multi-sport virtuosity makes Neon Deon Sanders look more like Crappy Crappy Crapface.  Recently we were asked to participate in a basketball tournament later this summer, and because you don’t get a “Participant” ribbon without playing, we agreed.  Of course, merely shaming any and all opponents publicly isn’t enough for us, so we’ve started really practicing our skills.  After just two practices, we’re already seeing a marked improvement.  For instance, today I didn’t even come close to throwing up until the very end of the game, and I only started trying to let the other team win in order to end my suffering after fifteen minutes of play.  Progress!

Please find enclosed photographic evidence of our sportingness.
