Prank calls are nothing new. The Jerky Boys took them to dizzying heights. Earles & Jensen took them to perverse lows. But the Corporate Office's calls stand in a league all their own. Whereas most calls revolve around the caller's shtick and the time before the other person hangs up, The Corporate Office relies more on action/reaction, less on routine. More than ten years ago this call was up on the Chunklet site and became an enormous hit. And now? It's available again, and now for the first time on vinyl! Available as a one-sided 12" in a deluxe Stoughton tip-on jacket in an edition of 100, this 6 minute Wendy's call immediately ends up in the prank call hall of fame. And yes, this call is 100% real.

This is the best album of 2020. I'm glad I have it in digital format, because I would have utterly worn out any physical format.
John's subject matter is always personal, but in this album, he somehow makes the epic personal. He tells the story of the death of the ancient world in this light I've never really considered it in. He makes this random segment of late antiquity somehow unsettlingly relevant to 2020. It's an album of change, of entropy, but also of defiance, of hope. PRESS AN LP <3 lordscrubjay
