Stephin Merritt & co. On Craig Ferguson

Moby, he of Play fame, just tweeted the following delectable tweet:

october 31 i'll be involved in a one night only halloween supergroup with stephin merritt, amanda palmer, and neil gaiman. on craig ferguson

This, of course, is extraordinarily exciting.  According to Neil Gaiman's enviable blog, he will be sitting in the chair and acting as the spokesperson for the band.  This show will also be the starting point for his and his lovely wife's An Evening With Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer tour, with which one can only surmise that a certain Mr. Merritt might very be involved (if only for the L.A. date).  

Mr. Gaiman also says that Ms. Palmer is responsible for putting the group together.  This does make me more hesitant to believe that they will be debuting a song from the upcoming Merritt/Gaiman Grand Guignol musical, but a boy can still dream.

  1. I'm assuming they're going to perform "Bloody Sunrise". But we'll see. Dang, I wish I had a tv right now.

  2. Moby just confirmed on Twitter they'll be doing a Rocky Horror song. Lordohlord I hope it's "T-T-Touch Me" w/ Stephin on lead vox.

  5. I loved Neil getting applause every time he touched that toy piano. And Stephin's jacket was pretty great too.

  6. I saw Stephin wear that jacket some years back when he deejayed at The Profoundly Incredible Tentacle. He wore purple platform shoes too.

  7. I did like Stephin's jacket, as well as his hat, and Moby's two words were great.
