Quick on the heels of his acclaimed solo debut Major General, Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady, World/Inferno Friendship Society) has a new 4-song 10" entitled St. Sebastian of the Short Stage. Pressed on clear vinyl, it includes a collaboration with the Dresden Dolls, the best mariachi-disco tribute to a retired superhero yet recorded, and couple bleeding-heart weepies. Artwork by VICE Magazine's Nicholas Gazin, a similarly-mustachioed ex-accordion student of Nicolay's, includes a pullout poster insert; and an exclusive new short story by Nicolay entitled "Paraska Mikhailivna Is A Witch," about dead livestock and bluegrass music in rural Ukraine.
