Lemonheads and Wilson Phillips? :cool: :cool: :cool:
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Fun* Fact About Evan Dando: my friend Kerry is fairly credibly convinced that he raped a friend of hers after a concert in the early 90s.

I believe it. He's a privileged asshole in every sense of the word (racially, economically, looks). And even with all of that privilege, he's astonishingly mediocre. So, basically, textbook rapist.

My thoughts too. I'm sure he was particularly egotistical at the time (if not still, but particularly when a lot of people were telling him he was important). It seems similar to a lot of stories that have come to light recently.

Great pop tune and a deceptively great chord sequence. Written by 80s icon and snood-wearer Nik Kershaw.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Quite agree. I never knew that, though I dont know much of Kershaw's discography, what I've heard I really like.
