The winner of the contest to help Stephen Malkmus write a family-friendly version of his forthcoming single ‘Senator,’ from the album Mirror Traffic, will be announced tonight by Stephen himself during an instore at Hollywood’s seminal rock outlet Amoeba Music (6pm PST).

As you're probably aware, the chorus features the line "I know what the senator wants - what the senator wants is a blowjob."

Come up with a replacement for the word ‘blowjob’ that radio stations can air, and Stephen will sing the winning entry for the radio single when we send it to stations at the end of September. PLUS, you'll win a one-of-a-kind 7" single featuring your version of ‘Senator’ on one side, and the original version on the flip - the rarest Domino release ever.

And while we’ve only got a few hours until show time, we’ve still yet to determine that perfect ‘blowjob’ substitute. So get your last minute entries in HERE.  Seriously, we’re shutting it down in a few hours!  Remind yourself of the original lyrics for ‘Senator’ HERE.

The entire performance will be streamed on Amoeba’s website so even if you’re not in LA, you can still check it out and find out who won.

And if you just can’t wait another minute to get your SM/JCKS fix you can buy the album Mirror Traffic HERE.
