Surfing Youtube and found this great video of Julian Koster performing. I heard this song when the Music Tapes played the Bellhouse and instantly loved it. Someone on the Youtube page says its called Takeshi and Elijah. Anybody know what this song is from? Or perhaps have a studio version? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLSVmsWcFl4

And about that Bellhouse show in Brooklyn! Nobody was there. What gives? ...Not my loss.

it's a fairly newish song that hasn't been released yet. perhaps it'll be on the new music tapes album?

i was at the bell house show! the first time i heard that song was when julian came to my dorm house at sarah lawrence. really awesome to hear it live. it was mislabeled as secret to snowing for a while and theres a pretty good mp3 of it from the mercury lounge bootleg. i forget where that link was but you can search it on the google as secret to snowing or maybe even takeshi and elijah by now- who knows? but it was called secret to snowing on that bootleg and thats how i found it.

i was so happy when julian played that on the caroling tour at my house. i wanted to ask him to play it but i felt funny. i told him afterword. :]

they played this at the pop fest with the kazoo reprise, also pretty good sounding recordings and easily available.

Haha, that's me. I've got two videos on my page of him at my house, too. I got the whole thing recorded, but I've yet to rip it all to my computer. When I do, I'll put up Takeshi & Elijah from Kalamazoo.

ha when he played at my house he was getting ready to end and I was like "um, I have a question" and he looks at me and I say "Is it rude to request songs of carolers?" and he said, "no, not at all" so I asked him to play song for ocean's falling, which he was skeptical about because "it's a very heavily mic-ed song" as he put it. Well he played it, "unplugged" as his large canadian friend dubbed it afterwards. It was amazing. He bowed his saw for the horn parts and that song sold my friend who was there on the music tapes.

I requested a song too! Song for The Death of Parents.. I felt bad because he really did not want to play it heh (Static plays the guitar part apparently. It took him a bit to remember it), but once I produced a bouncing ball he couldn't quite deny me :P I was terribly out of rhythm with the ball bouncing though.

i really wanted to ask him to play song for soon to be sailor more than anything else but he had already done so much for me that i didnt feel right to request anything. i was satisfied that he played takeshi and elijah though. it was the song i wanted to hear second most after hearing the popfest recording.

Mercury Lounge bootleg? Are you sure it wasn't the Popfest show from last August at the 40 Watt? I haven't seen a Mercury Lounge bootleg from the CMJ show.

Does anyone know the lyrics for Takeshi and Elijah?

Its probably one of my most favorite songs and I dont even properly know all the words! I'm usually pretty bad with these sorts of things.
