Bradford Cox from the band Deerhunter wrote in his blog on January 28, 2008:
"Present Tense: Cole Alexander (Black Lips) and I have a new thing called Ghetto Cross. The name is old. We first talked about having a band called that when we first met and started hanging out. Then he used it for a Black Lips song title. Now we take it back to the streets. He came over saturday night and we knocked out a song for a 7" we are going to do for Chunklet Magazine guy Henry Owing's new label.
