Message From The BandSo in case you aren't aware, we contributed a song to a benefit compilation recently. The CD is called "For Callum" and all the proceeds go to benefit Callum Robbins, son of J. Robbins and Janet Morgan. You might know J from his bands like Jawbox and Channels or you might know him from the wonderful work he does in the studio, like on the track we contributed. "Operator," which was part of the sessions for "The World and Everything In It" was sitting there and this was the obvious no brainer place to put it.
