not much good came out of 1993 and my brief time spent at western illinois university located in the shit hole known as macomb – all apologies if you happen to reside there. lets just say mistakes were made, nothing very serious but attending college with a high school sweetheart is not a grand idea. people kept warning me not too but the thought of having all the uninterrupted sex i could muster was all i could think of, thus clouding my judgement.
one morning i happened to be listening, not by choice, to the otherwise very lame campus radio station when tupelo’s “wipe the clock” flooded the desolate cafeteria. as soon as it ended i ran down to the station to find out who that was, cause as my luck would have it the end of the song signaled an ad for some bar and then the local walmart. i found myself walking in the freezing rain to the local shop, rockin robins. luckily she had still feel gone AND march so my quest was not in vain. for the next 6 months i dont think i listened to anything else, that is until anodyne came out.
here is a radio performance on WFMU, east orange, nj on 7.29.90.
