New Paul Westerberg limited-edition vinyl: This Machine b/w Foolish Hand Shake

By 28.Oct.1013 Comments

While I cannot test the veracity of the claims, I did just get an e-mail from Ten Pin Managment with a link to a new 45 with two songs. It definitely looks Westerbergian, no?

According to the email:
Mr. F “This Machine” b/w “Foolish Hand Shake”

LIMITED EDITION multi-colored vinyl w/ picture sleeve
BONUS: comes with free download card which can be redeemed for the epic “Grandpaboy’s Last Stand”
$8 + shipping and handling
Limit 1 per customer (orders for more than 1 single will not be shipped)

I ordered one. What do you think?

P.S. I just wanted to say that I’ve gotten emails from the same email address about other releases that were true. You know, in case you were wondering.


I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.

    I also placed an order. If it came from Ten Pin, that’s good enough for me. Maybe he’s putting Grandpaboy to rest in favor of this new Mr. F character.

  • Jodi says:

    I ordered it too. At least if we’re being foolish, we won’t be alone.

    I’m curious about Mr. F. . . what does the F stand for? Fettucini? Fuckyou? Festivities?

  • Jake says:

    I ordered one. Hope to God it wasn’t a waste of 11 bucks.

    Hmmm…”Mr. F”….I wonder if PW is a fan of “Arrested Development”……

  • Zook says:

    So will the two songs on this 45 be available on a download card or just this additional tune? I want to get this but I don’t own a record player so unless there is a way to hear it digitally I’m not sure I’m going to pony up for this. Anyone?

  • Jake says:

    I am pretty sure there is a download card.

  • Neil says:

    I think we’re all due for some Paul in the Fall! Hope it’s rockin’!

    I bought, bought, bought, bought, bought……..

  • Jake says:

    It is the real deal. The Westerberg site confirmed it.

  • Jodi says:

    Yeah, the westerberg site got the exact same email I did.

  • Squaw says:

    Ordered it, can’t hardly wait! Very sure this is legit by browsing the website. As for what the F stands for, I’m going to speculate it is up to the fans to interpret. Here goes a few possibilities….Fabulous, Freak, Fed-up, Free, Fiend, Friend, Fixture, Fun, Funny, Funk, Fear, Fuzzy, well, you get the drift. F is the sixth letter of the alphabet, if the name was Mr. FFF, well then, 666, the devil raised a good son. OK, enough rambling….Peace
