I'm looking forward to hearing this, Carl. Speaking of Chris Brokaw

months ago. :-)

Leonard Cohen cover -- their voices aren't all that different at this
point! I think Brokaw plays on it...

band he was in until a couple of years ago. Poppy guitar-based rock;
maybe Bill knows? I want to say he's worked with Chris von Sneirden
but have no idea.

influence than anything else.
I've seen him a couple of times, once at a SXSW day party and once in
Chicago at the Abbey Pub (opening for Lambchop). My impression's
been that he can't hold it together in a live show as well as on
album, but I've liked what I've heard off the latest (Life & Death of
an American Fourtracker).
- john vanderslice was a member of MK Ultra who did the song "bill gates must die." our station, wxdu, has been playing the crap out of the cd, but i don't know much about his music myself. everyone here loves him, but i haven't been paying enough attention in that area.
in an unrelated note, our local indie rock record store (Radio Free Records in Durham) got robbed last night. we just went by there today to buy the tift record (on vinyl!) but their doors were closed. very sad. i doubt they even had insurance since they didn't even pay for heating or a/c. they are one of my favorite stores ever. nice guys, helpful, they find great cds and sell 'em cheap. it makes me sad. as my friend matt said, "they should use the electric chairs on people who rob indie rock record stores." i'm with him.
