Hey Evan! Hope your biggest fan is in the studio! Or at least decent flow of AC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 9:11pm efd:

ha! AC is in full effect, thanks Jake.

That Tex Yearout cover is amazing. I would have picked it too.
Avatar Wed. 8/17/16 9:40pm JakeGould:

Look at this cover for another Paul Teachout LP, “It’s Tough to Be a Teenager.” The collage is filled with confusing things for teenagers… Acid, grass, sex, dope, parents… And 7-UP! img.discogs.com...

David Bowie knew what the hell he was doing on this song (others as well,I'm told. )
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 10:24pm jmd:

Cool! Thought this RB track was some old Wipers I ever heard before! Terrific!
  Wed. 8/17/16 10:25pm Stevel:

Saw Tommy Stinson last night. Playing with his ex-uncle in law (Minnesota, eh?) It was great. Last time I saw him, he was 16. He still has the fire of youth. Very nice, no-bullshit guy. Great music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 10:27pm chris_in_space:

@jmd I thought of Wipers from the first few notes of that Ragged Barracudas tune as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 10:28pm efd:

and like the Wipers (and Hurry Up), Ragged Barracudas are from Portland!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 10:29pm efd:

Nice Stevel, sounds like a cool show!
  Wed. 8/17/16 10:32pm Ignore Function:

Stevenl, I saw Tommy Stimson last week and it was as great you say. I didn't know that guy Chip used to be his brother-in-law!
  Wed. 8/17/16 10:33pm Ignore Function:

Uncle-in-law. Even stranger(cooler?).
  Wed. 8/17/16 10:38pm Stevel:

IF: Some relation of his ex wife. Great country rock guitar player. He screamed on a plastic-looking lap steel guitar. Can't easily or briefly describe it. My jaw, if not actually on the floor, was wide open.

I dug hurry up! They had attitude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/17/16 10:45pm Devin B.:

Aw man, missed Hurry Up. Will have to check it out the archive. Their record rules.

If you like the record you will definitely like the live set!
