in stores now: margaret cho's cho dependent


Did you know that Margaret Cho has a new album? Cho Dependent, a laugh-inducing album of "sex, drugs, rock & roll - and lice," is out in stores right now. We've already heard some samples with funny tracks like "I'm Sorry."

Make no mistake -- while this a comedy album, Margaret hasn't slacked off in the music department either. She's enlisted the help of friends like Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Tegan and Sara, Andrew Bird, Ani DiFranco, Garrison Starr, Meghan Toohey, Brendan Benson, Rachael Yamagata, Carl Newman, Grant Lee Phillips, Patty Griffin, Ben Lee, Kevin Barnes.

Check out the music video for "Eat Shit and Die", featuring Grant Lee Phillips:



I like the dancing pieces of shit. And the shit guitar. Very subtle. Mad props the costume and prop designer. "Hi, Al? Hey, it's me Margaret. Can you make some shitty costumes for me? No, literally. Shitty costumes."


In support of the album, Margaret is also embarking on The Cho Dependent Tour, sponsored by Logo. And she'll be bringing along friends! The tour kicks off this week in Portland and runs through December:
