Mountain Goats Rock Couch Live On David Letterman!


4AD Records band The Mountain Goats have a brand new record called All Eternals Deck and were on The David Letterman Show a couple weeks ago to support the record with their song "The Birth of Serpents".


We were excited to see that Mountain Goat songwriter John Darnielle is still wearing his limited edition Army Guadalupe Strap he must have purchased from Couch 4 or 5 years ago when we did the only small batch of 30 or 40 of these. He's been wearing this strap for years, so it's still doing the job for him! We'll guess and say the bass player here is Peter Hughes. We don't need to guess on his strap though, as he's definitely wearing a Couch Brown and Orange Racer X Guitar Strap. Nice!

John Darnielle has been included in Paste Magazine's list of the 100 Best Living Songwriters, and New Yorker critic Sasha Frere-Jones called him "America's Best Non-Hip Hop Lyricists". Those are some nice words yo!
