about

Led by singer-songwriter-producer Elia Einhorn, Fashion Brigade is a collaborative project featuring the talents of Frankie Cosmos; Shamir; X's Exene Cervenka; Thor Harris; and members of LCD Soundsystem, Dirty Projectors, Icy Demons, Prince Rama, Phosphorescent, and loads more greats. Every song has at least one collaborator, some a handful.

Fashion Brigade began after Einhorn’s previous band, Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, experienced a horrific tour accident. Laid up with a broken neck and back, plus 26 stitches in his head, he began the earliest writing and recording of what would become 'Fvck The Heartache.' The album was recorded in Olympia at K Records' Dub Narcotic studio; in Chicago at I.V. Labs; in Brooklyn at the Silent Barn; in a converted railway station in Wales; and in bedroom studios across the U.S.

Track Name: Fvck The Heartache
i wanna fuck the heartache right out of you
kiss away your mistakes and your self-loathing too
i know the things you’ve done
in the name of love and fun
i love them all

so come out tonight, on this summer night, let’s go dancing
life’s a bummer there’s no doubt
a bummer but come out
let’s go dancing

i wanna be your rhonda, help you get him out of your heart
i wanna be your wanda jackson, stupid cupid hit you with the wrong
goddamn dart

i wanna be the danny to your sandy
just a little less handsome, and a lot more handsy

chorus

i know you’re still in love with him-
i thought he’d be the flavor of the week

so what if you’re in love with him? i’ve got a guy owes me a favor
i think i’ll speak with today

choru
Track Name: First Sunny Day Of The Year
copping off by the industrial estate
hidden by hedges from the motorway
the chill’s gone from the air
and hints of spring appear
it’s the first sunny day of the year


riding bikes down by the harbor
sandwiches out on the pier
tomorrow work and school conspire
but today’s the first sunny day of the year


take off that scratchy wool pullover
i’ll take off these lemon yellow jeans
‘cause it’s right now and we’re right here
and it’s the first sunny day of the year
yeah it’s the first sunny day of the year
Track Name: Kissyface
let's play kissyface
on your naugahyde le corbusier
let's play!

i wanna lay in bed together
listen to our favorite records
do it, go to sleep,
wake up and do it again

let's play kissyface
on your naugahyde le corbusier
let's play

and if the morning light shining through the blinds
finds us black and blue i would never mind
would you?
would you mind?
Track Name: Kathleen
you can see your breath in the air again
the chill of fall is slowly descending
falling leaves are blending colors underfoot
so i walk around with my collar high
gusts of wind blow by
but i hardly notice
my mind is on kathleen
woah oh oh kathleen

you can feel the nights have been drawing in
i feel it’s a time for beginnings
lately i feel like i’ve been winning
maybe it’s cause she’s been around?
so say what you must
you’ll say what you say
but at the end of the day
these chicago nights are freezing
i don’t feel so cold with my arms around kathleen
woah oh oh kathleen
Track Name: You Made Me Dream Again
you made me dream again
for fifteen seconds 'till i remembered
what a terrible human being you are
i was in new york city with you
i was watching you do
your stand-up comedy
but every joke in the whole routine
was about me

stopped by your office just to see
the leading publication of the day
the kids were all going crazy
you never bothered
writing a word about me

and i hope that
i can find somebody to make me smile
but I have realized
that I will never smile
Track Name: Isn't That Just Being In Love?
hoping to see you on my morning train
walking in circles, skipping in the rain
being convinced i've gone insane
isn't that just being in love?

saving snippets of your hair
stealing your dirty underwear
pushing your boyfriend down the stairs
isn't that just being in love?

calling eighteen times a day
hiding a GPS in your briefcase
looking through your windows at 1am
isn't that just being in love?

knocking you out with chloroform
stuffing you in my trunk to keep you warm
keeping you chained
in my basement forevermore
it’s just being in love!
isn't that just being in love?
isn't that just being in love?!
Track Name: I Hate You
i got myself off three times today remembering the way you kissed me
i stopped short of a fourth remembering the way you hissed at me
“i never want to see you again as lover or friend i hate you
i never want to see you again as lover or friend i hate you”

our time to you was a terrible waste with a bad aftertaste on your palate
you beat my heart to dead meat then smashed it like gallagher’s mallet
saying “i never want to see you again as lover or friend i hate you
i never want to see you again as lover or friend i hate you”

then you moved away off to LA to become a famous actress
and left me down in this go-nowhere town
with stains all over the mattress
and your unworn wedding gown

maybe one day you’ll find a way to come visit me on
my deathbed
but knowing you, you’d laugh at the news and send
me dead roses instead
with extra-long thorns to prick me and make me bleed
tucked in the crumbling leaves, the note attached would read:
“i never want to see you again as lover or friend i hate you
i never want to see you again as lover or friend i hate you”
Track Name: Mine All Mine
there will always be skinny girls in short shorts
they will never be a day over twenty one
well forget them, you will age and gray
and grow more beautiful every day

there will always be hunks at muscle beach
and though i know sometimes when we’re alone
you’ll think of them instead of me
that’s fine
‘cause while they’ve got great bodies
you’re mine all mine

let the naysayers say their nays
let the moon turn her back on the sun each night
she still reflects his light
try as she might… try as she might...

one day there will a finely carved stone
and rocks and flowers for our bed
and you and I will sleep together forever
our bodies as our souls forever wed
forever wed
forever wed
Track Name: Cyndi Lauper
do you think you’ll be single for pride fest this year?
looking for a lover ‘midst the beads and the beer?
well if you are darling, i’ll be standing right here
whistling this song, i’ll wait all day long, hell, I’ll wait all year
amidst the gay throng
and if you say so long
i’ll just disappear

are you on the market for this year’s market days?
i hear cyndi lauper is going to play
maybe you could join me? we’ll be happy and gay
you can peel off those tight chaps, come to mine for a nightcap,
it’s just down the way

‘cause the rainbows and glitter mean nothing to me
if there’s no one to cheer them on with
the floats seem deserted, the pervs less perverted,
the pride in my heart just a beautiful myth

so do you think you’ll be single for pride fest this year?
looking for a lover ‘midst the beads and the beer?
well if you are darling, i’ll be standing right here
whistling this song i’ll wait all day long, hell, I’ll wait all year
amidst the gay throng and if you say so long
i’ll just disappear
Track Name: Punx With Ukuleles
where do leather jackets go when they die?
somewhere sad...

and where do steel toe boots go when they die?
somewhere sad...

where do punks with ukuleles go
when they die?
where do punks with ukuleles go?
somewhere sad
somewhere sad
somewhere sad
Track Name: Middle C
me without you
or you without me
is like a piano
without a middle c
and who wants to play an instrument like that
if we don’t need to?
