Re: “A Match Made in Hell

Oh, I believe after the return trip via train to Wurzburg, we had some difficulty getting the car out of the parking garage and ended up throwing the barrier arm stop off its' mechanism on the ground and driving over it - hurriedly.

Seems like a fitting end to a night with The Replacements then.

Wurzburg Banhof can feel free to bill me now.

Re: “A Match Made in Hell

I caught The Replacements tour of Pleased To Meet Me in Frankfurt Germany, and the whole trip up and back on the train, etc, with my buddy Glenn, was quite the adventure.
As the Mats were the 'thinking mans drinking band', I had quite a bit of beer that night. I was 2 people back from Tommy Stinson, and Glenn kept passing beers up to me. I was toasting Tommy with them, of course, to be polite and all. Problem was, the girl in front of me didn't much care for the fact that with the swaying of the crowd (and being pretty lit) some beer invariably landed on her head.
What the hell. A Replacements show in Frankfurt. It happens!
But reading all this, I wish I was at the Portland show too.

Elliot Smith wrote his songs for himself to sing. They only fit him.

Great piece. However, you did overlook explaining WHY DECEMBERISTS DAY IS IN JANUARY

Re: “Me and My Teddy Bear

Playful spirit? this cocksucker is the rudest person I've ever run into on a flight. Last Tuesday PHX-PDX on USair. The jackass takes up a full overhead over his seat then tries to overtake the one across the aisle. Made his wife or whoever was traveling with him to climb over the aisle seat with his fat ass in it to use the toilet. wouldn't even stand up. Flight crew constantly asking him to move his legs out of the aisle. So glad I threw my carry on atop his stupid looking hat. Watching him melt down in that ridiculous costume he wears was worth the price of admission.

Re: “Shake Some Action

Thanks for the coverage. 40+ years since their last visit to NW (and that was a
Seattle-area rock fest) they stroll into KBOO last night on Brandon's Drinking From Puddles show and Callie Danger's DitchDigger Radio and plunge right back into that jangly crackling groove with vocals and 'tude like ya only get on community radio. Po'town blessed with alt media. They oughta look up from their screens every so often and check it out. Keep on doing...

Re: “March of Progress

The Viet Cong were an indochinese militia group. I am sure there is historical relevance to this band. Perhaps the drummer was killed with a bamboo staked booby trap. That would be super cool.

Re: “Strange Melody

I loved her first album, but when I saw Jessica Pratt at Pickathon a couple years back she was a total... prat. Sullen and haughty, refusing to engage with the audience or interviewer to the point of being rude - why agree to perform in that space, then? It was cringe-worthy. I now have a hard time separating her [pretty-good] art from the artist.

I'd be interested to know if she's had an attitude adjustment since or if the move to LA was just to be closer to her people.

I was at two of these. Two! I feel, like, moderately cool right now.

Re: “The Best of 2014

So "Magic Mouth" wants to rape me in the face, but "Black Pussy" is too offensive? Okay, gotcha.

Re: “Dark at the End of the Tunnel

I have seen atriarch with all the preceding bass players and without joe it just isn't atriarch. I wish him a quick recovery so he can play on the next albumand maybe get full credit for his efforts rather than I mention in the liner notes
