6 born in a bottle-rocket


at Jenny Fair's going away party, during an ill-timed room-wide hush, i unwittingly initiated a conversation based on a book that only i knew existed, that none of us had read, and about a band few people had ever heard. needless to say, that went nowhere. but hey- here's the book. just imagine the convo that could have been.

will they take away my indie card if i admit that i have never, never liked this album? because i have never, never liked this album. and i've tried. lots. but i just can't do it. no matter how i try.

jeff, oh jeff, your voice just kills me (and not in that feist take-me-home-and-do-with-me-as-you-wish kinda way).

what a brave admission. as a radio personality, you can now pull off the stuff for which we would cruelly judge non-celebs so hold on to your indie card. actually, the irritatingly whiney male singers- whom i nonetheless adore- seldom move me in the do-with-me-as-you-wish kinda way. now, gypsy punks- that's a whole other story.

Nobody has ever heard of them. I don't know about the second album, but their first one Decadence is one of my favorite driving cds. I bring them up and people look at me like I am in a dream world. Oh well. It used to be be that way when I brought up Gogol Bordello, but now...

Thats okay. um, not every album is for every body, it wouldn't be indie/alternative if a large amount of people dug it... i just find it wonderfully odd and very moving. there isn't a single track that I find boring or pretentious. it just sounds... right.
