Long division, yeah

Been careless and forgot to let folks know that you can hear the first single from the forthcoming Old 97's record on the band's Web site. The song's "Dance With Me." It's good, if a bit of a re-tread (reminiscent, but better than, "This Is What We Talk About," off "Fight Songs"). It just sounds really good to hear the ramshackle guitar again, with the gain cranked up to the raggedy edge.

"This old nightclub stole my youth,
This old nightclub stole my true love.
It follows me around, from town to town.
I just might get drunk tonight and burn the nightclub down."
-- Old 97's "Nightclub"
