old mishka vs. new mishka

1 Comment 19 July 2012

So we just uploaded a bunch of my old jams to the website today, songs that I haven’t listened to in a long time, songs that I’ll have to relearn for an upcoming residency in Portland. Am I conflicted about ’em? Hell yeah– it’s hard to find a song on How To Make A Bad Situation Worse that doesn’t explicitly praise alcohol. But… I think they’re good songs. And though I’m glad that I’ve moved on, to pretend that my wasted years didn’t happen would be erasing most of my life. So here they are– enjoy ’em, with a grain of salt. It’s not who I am, it’s who I was. And for God’s sake, they’re songs, not an instruction manual. Okay? Okay.

"The Kindle Singles bestseller list has anointed new stars like Mishka Shubaly..." -
The New York Times"

"the gruff and rough-voiced Shubaly is a chronicler of mankind's darkest impulses and failures, a guy with a ticket to hell and back"
Time Out New York

"a beaming ray of jet-black sunshine"
The Village Voice

"Shubaly is earnestly obstinate, yet capable of change; a nihilist, and yet he seeks meaning; a walking contradiction and a joy to spend time with on paper."
Amazon.com
