"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

I have a friend whose favorite thing to do in a car full of people is to wait for "In the Air Tonight" to come on the radio, then switch off the volume the second before the drums kick in. (Also yay Culturcide!)

@The Oscar: Always meant to dig deep but never have. Love the Wild Man Fischer album they produced 'Pronounced Normal' though.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/8/19 10:15am The Oscar:

@Vincent It's worth a dig, especially since you can regularly find their albums for a couple of bucks in used comedy bins. Some of their stuff is sophomoric and gross, but their best isn't worlds away from the Residents. Their videos were uniformly excellent, too (and featured a jarring number of future stars!)

Is it true Geza X produced that Meredith Brooks song "Bitch"? That feels urban legendy.

@ Nate K - Wikipedia sez that, so Geza did produce that tune.
  Fri. 11/8/19 10:47am Nate K:

It's stated there and in his AllMusic bio. It's just so hard to get my head around. If it's true, he probably got a nice and long-deserved chunk of change from in.

i can sing like this :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/8/19 11:22am tim from champaign (now washington):

@Nate K - Killdozer are the People's band. Let me remind you of the title of their first album: Intellectuals are the Shoeshine Boys of the Ruling Elite. Wait..that doesn't make sense.
  Fri. 11/8/19 11:22am Kramer:

Oops, killdozer is not a supergroup, but it did a collab with Urge Overkill
  Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/8/19 11:23am TomDash:

Went to college in the town Don McLean supposedly wrote this - Saratoga Springs. Wrote it at a bar and said bar played it all the time - drunk college kids would sing along. Kinda wish they played the Killdozer version JUST ONCE...
  Fri. 11/8/19 11:24am Nate K:

@Tim, I've pondered that title many times. @Kramer, they are, however, a "super" group.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/8/19 11:24am Ken From Hyde Park:

Can we call them a super group, though?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/8/19 11:24am tim from champaign (now washington):
