Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

From 'Love is the Song We Sing' boxed set (more like a bitchen fancy yearbook...anyhow) :

Recorded San Jose 11/66, single 3/67

Proof that truth is stranger than fiction is the fact that the bizarre, psych-inclined nugget 'SuzyCreamcheese' was recorded by a straighter-than-straight bunch of San Jose teens on a lark. & there are prob. few better examples of the convergence of old & new that the creative crucible of 1966/7 fostered. Based upon an apocryphal lyric line handed to singer Flores by a local hipster - @ the time, no one in the group had even heard of the Mothers or their 'Freak Out!' album - the group fashioned a chaotic, incoherent thrash full of bubbling feedback & toppling drumkit; as the late, great Greg Shaw of 'Who Put the Bomp!' described it, the Patches "took a Frank Zappa idea [&] added some 'Louie Louie' consciousness."
Produced by local songwriter Gradie O'Neal in his new Tiki Sound Studios, w/ only the simplest of equipment, the rough-hewn yet charismatic "Suzy" still managed to top the charts in the South Bay upon release in May 1967...

Do I regret ever smashing a guitar? Only once. I was in Detroit & picked up a 1950s Fender Strat in a pawn shop. I was sure it was Buddy Holly's. I felt like Buddy Holly playing it. Then some kid demanded I smash my guitar on stage. So - I smashed it on his fingers! I keep waiting for him to emerge & sue me. He probably should...

yeah PBR is rotgut
Avatar Fri. 2/5/16 2:21pm Rich in Washington:

PBR was all the rage here in Pee Town. I think part of it is that it is so ubiquitous in dive bars, usually for a buck. And it's a beer you can drink all night without falling down.
Myself, I always like it because of Frank Booth.
I think PDX hipsters have moved on to local UR-beer Rainer.

Avatar Fri. 2/5/16 2:35pm Rich in Washington:

in portland anyway, I think it's this reactionary backlash against the brewpub culture, which is seen as being bourgeois middle class - it certainly is a huge thing here and sort of pretentious. The areas sort of a mecca of brewers with restaurants in them.
So it's started this whole cheap domestic beer thing with hipster. Plus it's really cheap. But you have to drink eight or more of these piss-weak beers to get as loaded as you would drinking two craft beers.

On the website-seem to have fixed the problems with the videos blocking access to the other shows. Also, the pop up player had this issue for the longest time, when a show ended, it would start to stutter. Hasn't happened past few days, no stutter, can just leave it on.
  Fri. 2/5/16 2:38pm Dean:

That's rich: hipsters finding brewpub culture pretentious! My experience with beer in PDX has been good. For a while I attended the huge festival on the river in late July. I'm not a festival kinda person, but I love the low-key vibe, the good fun, and the surprising infrequency of shitfaced drunkenness. This past year, however, was different. The beer was perhaps the best I've had, but the vibe seemed more forced. So, yeah, maybe the hipsters are right.
