The U.S. Postal Service comes to agreement with The Postal Service
After a year of negotiating, The Postal Service (the band founded by Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello) has the The Postal Service (the mailmen founded by Ben Franklin) off their backs. Part of the accord includes The Postal Service playing a show at a national USPS conference and using songs from Give Up in USPS promotions and ads. A USPS spokesperson confirmed, “We are hell bent on making sure that one of the best record of 2003 is so ubiquitous, Americans will reflex vomit upon hearing the electronic-lite songs they once adored.”

Is part of the agreement that The Postal Service can only record quick, efficient, upbeat songs that remind people of how quick and efficient the mail service is? If the band started recording lots of dirgy slowcore stuff, it could be a cross-marketing disaster.

Not sure about that, but word is the USPS wants The Postal Service to build a stable of themed covers for the USPS ads based on the success of "Against All Odds." On the slate is "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," "Everything I Do, I Do It For You," and "You Never Give Me Your Money."
