Me too Cecile! I do think it's funny to be anti Weller though. He just played Cincy last week but I couldn't bear to go see just him. If Style Council reunited though that would be wicked *Awesome.

what's always bothered me, and i call them "singles" too, is that i assume that refers to a single song. but as we know, and hi joe, there's almost always at least two songs. so shouldn't they be "doubles"?
