Barfly’s Winding Up Strangers in Bars turns 5 years old this month, as does his novel’s musical companion piece, the Floods’ album Tentacles of Abraxas, a collection of songs written, produced, and recorded by Barfly for release with his novel. As always, author signed copies are available in the T & B store and you can check out the album at soundcloud.com/barfloko.
Hit up the store and cop yourself something too dangerous to wear out in meatspace!
Cut this shit out, you buggy routines. You’re doing the thing. Don’t do the thing. Idiots.
While you could certainly pick this title up from Amazon or Google Books or Barnes & Noble for about the same price, the author actually profits substantially more if purchased from us here at Templars and Broccoli™. Plus our copies are signed by Barfly, so whaddya gonna do, am I right? Ayy. $20 + $5 s/h
That’s right. It’s time for our yearly post! And what better way to commemorate the occasion than with some soundcloud webjunk from a middle-aged rapper? This freebie is for you, beloved, in gratitude for another enchanting, fruitful year of faith and devotion to your Tempest & Brolly™ Brand Luxury Contraband.
You can now listen to Barfly‘s full length solo effort released in 2015 under the moniker Floods. The album is called Tentacles of Abraxas and originally accompanied first edition copies of Barfly’s novel Winding Up Strangers in Bars.
The largely sample free full length showcases Barfly’s songwriting and represents a stark departure from the sardonic humor of his early work. If you enjoy the album and want to support the artist, there are links to purchase below.
This morning a strange man rapped at my door. He came in navy blue peddling financial products. I admit I was given pause by this emulation of concern for the future of my wealth. Normally I would have just waved him along. I usually counterfeit my money-it’s much easier than actually making it. This day, however, I had questions.
Ayy. New skins to customize your chassis.
More to come in 2017.
Thank you for holding us in your heart forever and all time. Your online safe space,
Templars & Barley™
Ten minutes in the parking lot listening to ‘Eye of the Tiger’ just to firm up my resolve for the imminent retail affray. Courage mustered, I made my way toward the threshold. Whisper soft, I stole past their perimeter and gained the initiative.
Barfly has authorized Tempest & Brolly™ to offer a very small number of his 2016 Floods album ‘Tentacles of Abraxas’ in a CD-R short run. The album was initially available only with purchase of Barfly’s novel ‘Winding Up Strangers in Bars’ but we have a handful of copies for sale in our store right now. These are priced to go and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
