Split Single is a band fronted by Jason Narducy, and includes Britt Daniel (Spoon) and Jon Wurster (Superchunk). Their first album, Fragmented World, comes out on April 1, and to drum up some publicity, they just released a mockumentary called “The Sexiest Elbows in Rock Music” that features Fred Armisen, Tim Meadows, Dave Grohl, Mac McCaughan and Margaret Cho, among others. It’s the story of Narducy himself, who, in this universe, is prized and eventually exploited for the sexiness of his elbows. Armisen plays a British enthusiast called “Ian Rubbish,” and Meadows stars as his scarf-and-t-shirt-wearing manager Merv Steelman. Meadows has my favorite line:
Steelman: Once, about 5 in the morning, Jason called me and said that he was really distraught because he’d finally met his hero, Margaret Cho, and all she wanted to do was suck on his elbows. In front of everybody.
So if you like musicians being funny, or you legitimately have an elbow fetish, get your fix by watching above.
