Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks Hold Hilarious Contest: Seeking Replacement for "Blowjob"
Stephen Malkmus needs your help with the new single from the Jicks' forthcoming Matador LP, Mirror Traffic. The problem: it's not radio friendly. Why? The song features the lyric "I know what the senator wants / What the senator wants is a blowjob." So Malkmus and Matador are staging a contest to come up with the best possible alternative to make the FCC happy and get the track on the air.
Help Stephen write a radio friendly version of "Senator"! The winner gets their lyric recorded by Malkmus and a one-of-a-kind 7" single with Senator A-side and their version on the B-side, making the winner the owner of the single rarest record in the Matador catalog. Contest ends August 23rd, and the winner will be announced September 15th.
