David Shrigley's Worried Noodles
Two years ago this month, Media Guy's Pop Pick made its debut with "Worried Noodles," a "record" by cult Scottish artist/prankster David Shrigley that was actually an empty LP sleeve on which he'd written "I DIDN'T MAKE A RECORD I COULDN'T BE BOTHERED TO MAKE A RECORD IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO DIFFICULT IT WAS EASIER TO NOT MAKE A RECORD." It came with an awesome 48-page booklet of his faux-naif comedic drawings and absurdist lyrics "for songs you will probably never ever hear." To celebrate the toddlerhood of Pop Pick, I'm not only randomly giving away one copy of the original "Worried Noodles" (now a collector's item), I'm also giving away its sequel: the two-CD "Worried Noodles" set (also called "Worried Noodles") that includes, yes, 39 tracks by indie stars including David Byrne, Franz Ferdinand, Liars and Grizzly Bear inspired by the first, music-free "Worried Noodles," along with a CD-size book of lyrics and drawings. To be eligible, send me an e-mail with "Shrigley" in the subject line on or before July 23.
