Titus Andronicus Now Delivering Singing Telegrams

Patrick Stickles singing Titus Andronicus

Brooklyn punk rockers Titus Andronicus debuted their new online store yesterday, and one item in particular grabbed many people’s attention: for $50, the band’s singer Patrick Stickles will come to your home—if you live in New York City, New Jersey, or Long Island—and sing any song of your choosing for you. Well, almost any song: he won’t sing one of the band’s most popular songs, “Theme from ‘Cheers,'” which the band hasn’t been playing lately, either. At the Local Business Shea Stadium record release show it was notably absent from the two-hour, career-spanning set, rumor has it because Stickles now finds its anthemic celebration of binge drinking to be irresponsible.

On the site, you can also of course buy shirts, records—including a preorder of a previously unannounced fourth LP—and even a CD or two. You can also get “A Personalized Drawing of Whatever,” like, say, of the Replacements on a piece of legal-pad paper. For only five bucks!
