Find What You Love and Let it Kill You
7″ EP (USA, 2013)
(Available July 08, 2013)

I won’t say much about this EP except to say that this is a three-song celebration of someone remarkable, beautiful, and like no other person I’ve ever met. These songs are written for her and her alone.

Thanks to the rest of the band and Mlee Marie (Hearts of Animals) for indulging me on this, for adding their unique touches to these tracks, and not to mention working long hours to record, mix, and master in a matter of weeks so that we could release it on the date I wanted. Ditto for artist Michael C. Rodriguez whose hard work is greatly appreciated. You guys are all awesome.

Amusing Facts:

The Road’s working title was “George Harrison” because Ramon couldn’t come up with a proper title.

Why no psychedelic oil lamp in the video? The bulb died on the 4th take.

How much booze was involved during the session?   Does this answer your question?

Where does the title to “La Jetée” come from?  A 1962 Chris Marker film ( https://vimeo.com/55297989 ).

Where does the title for the EP come from?  Kinky Friedman.  It was advice he gave Ramon after an interview for Free Press Houston.  Despite what the internet may tell you, it is not Charles Bukowski but (and Kinky has assured us of this himself) “a pure Kinky-ism”.
