I went by a local record store yesterday with the idea that I would buy some new music. I had three candidates in mind:
- Something by The Cucumbers, because I really dig that song, “Illegal,” they posted for download on the Protest Records website.
- Something by Built to Spill, because I really dig the song Jenny posted on her site. (You have to scroll down to find it.)
- Double Nickels On The Dime, by the Minutemen — who, being a defunct band, do not have their own homepage, but whose former bass player, Mike Watt, does — because I saw a commercial for the movie Jackass and I swear they were playing a clip from a song on this album, and I thought, “Either something terrible is being done with the music of the Minutemen, or this movie is a lot more interesting than I thought.”
In any case, three swings and three strikes.
So I’m soliciting suggestions for a new music purchase. Any ideas?
