So what are your hot picks these days? Here's mine:
Great Athens Band; incredibly gifted and deranged singer
Archers of Loaf, "Icky Mettle"
Great live band. Nearly flawless record IMHO
Mekons, "I [heart] Mekons"
Also responsible for my "show of the year" in town.
Good live band from Jacksonville; opening for 'em Friday night.
Tell me how you are, fella.

p.s., if you're really cool you'll join me in referring to the singer for
the Lemonheads as "Dando Calrissian: Mayor of Crowd City."
p.p.s. Happy Whatever-fucking-holiday-your-thin-skinned-religion-let's-you-have!
