Re: What's Everyone Listening to?

So I’d heard of Cracker for years in the DBT community but never really listened. A friend sent this song the other day. Patterson is playing in the video. The song would be a great homecoming sing-a-long. https://youtu.be/nA3rDnZelzo Start from the beginning and work your way through their discogr...

Re: NPR piece from Patterson

What a massive eye roll. Couldn't get through that entire piece. The only thing that hits me weird about this piece is some underlying sense that Patterson is apologizing for the name of the band. But that is not really the crux, it is a catalyst to a conversation that, it seems to me, is always go...

Agree with the Westerberg solo stuff as being underwhelming - I would except Stereo/Mono and Suicaine from that generalization though - Stinson is a freaking beast - Slim's solo stuff ain't half bad either - I like your analytical and writing style brother.
