Quite a happy song, this Die Matrosen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Scraps deSelby:

How many songs have the hook with just whistling?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

How can a few chords delivered w/ conviction & panache be so definitive?
Punk succeeded too well - in distancing itself from what came before - & in being intense & transitory...even now, the real History of it hasn't been written or acknowledged...efd will bring it...just Great.
  9:36pm rob steffens:

was that duet whistling?

Theme from 'Bridge Over The River Kwai', of course....

Didn't make that one -- first saw them in San Diego '85 at an SST Records tour -- a few times in Boston after that...always a fun show!

  9:51pm Will:

Yikes! Kid Congo and the PMB are playing a free show at Aurora in Providence on Monday night!
  9:52pm Stevel:

Such a distinctive yet true-to-original cover.
  9:53pm rob steffens:

ooh Providence. I like the downtown boys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Scraps deSelby:

We Love You is a good song, Kid Congo sang it pretty much straight, which is a good choice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Scraps deSelby:

Didn't read your comment before posting mine, stevel.

If I were Kid Congo's drummer I would have been so excited when he said he wanted to cover "We Love You."

yes. not happy to have missed that memorial tribute.
  10:09pm Stevel:

I know little about Lilliput or Kleenex. How'd I miss that? Really cool stuff.

Nice work Evan...I thought the most exotic name I would ever hear come out of your mouth would have been Rico Petrocelli!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm efd:

how about you take it down a notch or two, "rob stevens"
  10:11pm Stevel:

Kay: I found that Furs tape while cleaning my car earlier tonight. Impossible to say how many times I've listened to it over the years. Great driving music, apparently.

Jake, do have any information on gluten-free pie crusts?
  10:45pm Will:

Never before! An Upper Crust best-of retrospective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm efd:

just as "you"is the magic word (or one of them, anyway) for an umpire to toss a ballplayer, posting as someone else is a great way to get temporarily banned from posting comments.
  10:47pm Stevel:

I completely understand efd expecting a frisky show coming up. Sounds sweaty!
  10:49pm rob steffens:

maybe thats what you get for being a fool and using your real name

I kind of hear Bon Scott in "Cream of the Crust." Just a little bit.
  10:57pm JakeGould:

What Ken just said.

coelacanth: Nope. i like my gluten. Got extra gluten? Send it to me. GLUTEN!!!! GLUTEN!!!! GLUTEN!!!! GLUTEN!!!!

Jake, i's just kidding because you came with so much info for everybody. i'm eating gluten right now! (Thanks for those links, by the way)
(...though it is tough to find a gluten-free pie crust that doesn't fall apart.)

I am a para-professional, Marc15.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm coelacanth:

with smooth like that no one will ask for documentation.
  11:09pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Ha! At the last job I had—and the first full-time professional gig I quit within weeks in my life—someone was in the office pantry saying “Wow! Someone brought in gluten free cake. Jake, would you like some?” And my response—because her tone was so annoying and I didn’t want it was—“Well, that cake looks great but you know… I like gluten… So if you or anyone in the office has spare gluten, give it to this guy!” The look on er face was past stunned. She had no idea that was a joke.

A week or so later I quit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm coelacanth:

haha! - though it's kind of sad...either no sense of humor or needs some fresh light bulbs. that'd be hard for me to work with too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm coelacanth:

sweet. Thanks for Bowie.
  11:16pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: She was not the main reason I quit… She was cute in her cluelessness… But my direct boss was/is some I just could not work with… Quit cold after one incident too many with him…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm coelacanth:

okay... i thought maybe you were working closely with people with whom there simply was no understanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm coelacanth:

some people are quite charming and easily tolerated in cluelessness. (says the clueless man) then sometimes it feels like being in a bubble because no one hears your jokes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm coelacanth:

"terry" reminds me of "nice purse".
  11:51pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: The way too see her is she was cool, but like a school marmish directory of thoughtful people so she was excessively sensitive. Not a bad person but when you are a heterosexual white male she was the kind of person who you could just say, “Nice and brisk outside!” and she would react as if you said something that hurt someone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Scraps deSelby:

Nervus Rex recorded one of the best pop songs -- I mean, top 10 ever -- "The God Sheila"
