Our Lady Peace is a very underappreciated band.

Also....I may have already stated in this thread....but neither 'Lump" nor 'Peaches' is The Presidents of the United States of America's best song. It is and always has been 'Feather Pluckin'. 'Dune Buggy' is their second best song.



But they've got a bunch of good songs outside the ones named. Great band. Very funny.

Deep track on their self-titled album, but the guy that wrote this is a friend of mine.

"Some Postman" is also awesome.

As with pretty much all Chris Isaak songs, I presumed this was a Roy Orbison cover until proven otherwise. I bet Isaak takes no offense.

Per wiki this was nominated for a Grammy, but he lost out to Tom Petty. Still a gem.

Somebody's Crying

That album, Forever Blue, is a stone cold classic. As is most of Chris Isaak's catalog.

Guess I'll have to look into more Chris Isaak. But first....I have to get through my newly acquired stack of Marcy Playground & Nada Surf CDs.

It's not a 90's song.....but I'll post it here anyways. One of the reasons I buy albums and listen to them all the way through. This song by Nada Surf is incredible. Love it.

Listened to "It's A Shame About Ray" by the Lemonheads last night. Evan Dando is a dipshit but that's a nearly-perfect record.
You should go to 1st Ave on Dec 9. Juliana also on the bill.

I'm thinking about it. What are the odds it's going to be a horrific shitshow?
30%? I am hoping Juliana's presence keeps him focused, but that could be a fool's errand.

He had some fantastic set lists on his recent trips to Europe proper in the summer then back to Great Britain in October, but blew out his voice prior to the last show a few weeks ago.

It has the chance to be amazing (assuming his voice is back) or a train wreck.

Maybe I should check it out. Since I refuse to listen to Ryan Adams any longer this may be my best chance at a total trainwreck.

Poster boys.

I did not go, but Adams did perform what looks like an amazing setlist a few weeks ago at the State. Over 30 songs, including some Whiskeytown, as well as solo stuff from Heartbreaker and Gold. I think he knows he's on double secret probation, for multiple reasons.

He also played to the local crowd by including covers from Bob Mould, Soul Asylum and the Replacements. The Mpls Holy Trinity.

His show at the Palace a few years back was wonderful. But yeah, fuck that guy.
