Last Night

Man, last night was so rad. My friend and I went to see Archers of Loaf at the Great American Music Hall as part of Noise Pop 20. They were great, and played everything I wanted to hear. I got the setlist after the show, I’m not sure how long they are doing this reunion tour for but I hope I get to see em again. 

After the show, my friend took me to this bar called the Elbo room and we meet up with his friends who were celebrating a birthday. He forgot to mention all the girls are from the UK, so it was quite a wonderful surprise. The bar was also playing 90’s alternative indie hits. So everyone was dancing and once in a while, Nirvana would come on and people would start pushing around. 

First time legally drinking in San Francisco, what a killer night.

Uncorrected Proofs.

Here is a list. If I were to encounter my confused 16 year old self, I would give him this stack of records. It’s not a greatest or essential list. (Not even the best album by some of the artists.) It’s a list about establishing an attitude towards music that would have been useful; I wish these albums had been the bulk of my music listening when I was a teenage. (Only a few of them were.) I wish this had been my starting point.

1.   Siamese Dreams, Smashing Pumpkins

2.   Horses, Patti Smith

3.   Tennessee, Lucero

4.   Transformer, Lou Reed

5.   Icky Mettle, Archers of Loaf

6.   Left and Leaving, The Weakerthans

7.   Gold, Ryan Adams

8.   Being There, Wilco

9.   The Greatest, Cat Power

10. Let It Be, The Replacements

11. Vitalogy, Pearl Jam

12. Chelsea Girl, Nico

13. Lonsesome Crowded West, Modest Mouse

14. The Heart of Saturday Night, Tom Waits

15. Disintengration, The Cure

16. Aladdin Sane, David Bowie

17. London Calling, The Clash

18. Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen

19. Out of Time, R.E.M,

20. People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, A Tribe Called Quest

The Henry Clay People

They are all Rock n’ Roll and I’m willing to wrestle anyone to the ground over this. To me, the embody the best of the straight ahead, double guitar rock, and they love what they do enough not to try it insecurely hide behind cynicism or irony or some hipster bullshit. Theirs is unabashed-love of-music music. and I can’t get enough of it.
