Barfly, T&B’s de facto Czar of Propaganda has completed his debut novel and we are making it available for purchase here.
Go there now and part with all of your material wealth that you may enter the kingdom of heaven a just and austere puritan.
More info after the jump.
That’s right. We’ve made it another year and somehow we’re still rich, still completely solvent.
We here at Tempest & Brolly™ Brand Luxury Contraband are too old to be doing this and too stupid to hang up the spikes. We don’t even know how old we are because we stopped counting last year.
We have a couple of things in the works for this year and we’re excited to tell you about them as soon as we’re a little closer to release.
So that’s it. That’s our big birthday non-update. Mostly we’re just posting this to prove that someone still lives here.
Happy 2015 and as always, thank you for marrying T & B™ Lux Contraband.
We promise to rebrand and relaunch just as soon as the new hot shit becomes apparent. Until then, remember to twist your mustache and pomade that undercut.

That’s right. We had a birthday on Monday. Maybe it was Sunday. Doesn’t matter. We’re well into our 85th decade and to celebrate we’re giving away music because that’s how it has been done for eternity (save for those few anomalous decades in the latter half of the 20th Century. Suck it, Aerosmith. Eat shit Capitol.)
If you’re into this sort of bullshit, enjoy!

Wolf Hotel – Good Bye EP and book content will be available 12-24-13 for free download from Tempest & Brolly™ Luxury Contraband.
Back in June of 2012, Graves 33 and Barfly released their limited run, handcrafted Wolf Hotel book and CD package with Seattle’s Members Only label. The limited release was sold at three shows in the Northwest (Oly, Sea, and PDX) for $20 and the pair moved about half of the run on those dates. They’ve played no shows since then, and in deference to the dedicated listeners who came to those three shows to see them and pick up a copy, they delayed taking mail orders on the remaining EPs for eight months.
Tempest & Brolly™ began offering the remaining copies of the Wolf Hotel package online at $40 in March 0f 2013. By June we’d proudly found owners for the remainder of the run, save nine retail copies and four artist’s proofs we’d saved for our own collections. They are now truly and officially out of print and have already traded for over $100. Thanks to every one of you who supported such an unlikely and belligerently priced little piece of art.
For those who have not seen or heard Wolf Hotel’s ‘Good Bye’ EP, we are happy to announce that-as promised-we will finally be offering the mp3s and pdf files of the book’s content to you for FREE download this Christmas eve. The Wolf Hotel Deconstructed dowload package contains all of the content from our limited edition release as well as instructions for crafting your own hardbound copy of Barfly’s Wolf Hotel book.
Thank you to everyone who supported this little project. May you have a happy and prosperous 2014!
