One great MPLS band covering another. Trip Shakespeare clocking in with a Hüsker Dü fave from Grant.

Dead Set On Destruction


I do dig the cover but mostly just wanted to post something now that I figured out how to stylize the ü's with proper respect. Umlaut.

Is it a cover if you wrote the song?

Interesting debate, given how popular Adele made it. "Re-covered" as Dan Wilson termed seems totally appropriate.

Along the same line, here's Gary Louris with a tune he wrote that Dixie Chicks recorded.

Everybody Knows

In 1989 I scored really good seats to the R.E.M. tour for Green at Met Center. I was the 9th caller into KQ, some really late night studying for a midterm or writing a paper.

Lower bowl, on the Mike Mills side, close enough that I could see Bob Mould lurking in the wings. His queue to join them for a cameo was the encore. The song was by Television, See No Evil.

Here's the band playing it a few years prior.


RIP Tom Verlaine.
