whoa! sorry about that. i got a major case of the lazies yesterday, or if i were in college or worked at a brokerage firm i would have called it the tieoneon flu. sadly, i didnt get to see warm in the wake on saturday evening. i was able to catch a pretty cool band outta chapel hill, nc called twilighter and a fairly decent band called the eyes. twilighter take a page right outta yankee hotel foxtrot era wilco and throw in a lot of son volt along the way. i would definitely check em out if they come to your area.
in case you slept through the 8o’s, 90′s, this decade or maybe you just dont care, but you then probably arent acquainted with probably the coolest man in rock n roll, mr mike watt. you know the man behind two iconic bands, minutemen and fIREHOSE. anyway, i have been diggin on his 94 solo record ball-hog or tugboat over the past few days. up until last thursday i hadn’t listened to it in probably 8 years. if you arent familiar with ball-hog it features a venerable who’s who of 90′s indie/college rock, including j mascis, thurston moore, eddie vedder, evan dando, frank black, dave pirner, etc. its pretty bad ass and i definitely recommend seeking it out.
