So glad I saw Fountains when they played Bowery Ballroom a while ago... I didn't realize how special it was at the time. You don't really get that muscular Replacements-esque rock power from them on the records, always. But they had that thing bands who've played together for decades have... that tight power... It was AMAZEBALLS!

Used to love The Magician too, David. For the most part I watched it dubbed in Spanish during the part of my childhood I spent in Honduras. Was really surprised when I heard Bixby's actual voice, since in the Spanish-speaking world the joke was that the same actor dubbed every leading male role.

Mariano, it’s funny to contrast how now Gen-Xers are in charge of the media, even the death of even pretty fringe actors and musicians make the news now (at least here in the U.K.) whereas in earlier times the passing of a figure like B.B. didn’t even even rate a mention, despite the fact he was a massive star in the 70s.
