"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 9/27/19 9:17am steveo:

I have to be honest. I never really liked it. The first time it was recorded was back in 2003 or 2004. When we were touring in Europe I was very pleased by its success as I felt at home playing it. I feel like I might have written it that year, having spent my time with the band working on the follow up to The Underthing, but when I wrote it I thought I was playing it. I didn't really think it would catch on as well as it did, but what can you do?

More quotes from Phil Collins' aborted tour that passed through Houston, Texas in 1999: "Screw screw screwdio. Why does everyone keep saying that to me? Why are all these drinks purple?"

Also, sorry I'm late with the Phil Collins quote today.

Bob Stewart appears on three of the albums and he adds immeasurably to whole feel of the date. Is there a better tuba player? Stewart’s solo on the title track could be one of the best tuba solos anywhere, it has such a pungent sound. The tuba contrasts directly with edginess of Blythe’s sound.

John, could you double or triple up "wake up" until it overtakes "Heavy Metal/Takin' A Ride" as most played song on WFMU?

the dog's not taking the rap for you any longer John. in fact he's going to pass gas in the studio then leave so it looks like you did it.
