Somehow, presumably due to a network failure, my fucking iPhone posted this message with pix but without any of the words I wrote. How does that even fucking happen? Anyway, while choking on smoke in Austin's one despicable goth club awaiting Zola Jesus, I will attempt to reproduce this post from memory. 

Tammar: the spirit of Factory Records is alive in this band. Also, hypothesis not yet disproven: bands with two drummers are automatically cool. Also also: any band with a Melodica must be referencing either New Order's "Love Vigilantes" or Gang of 4's "It's Her Factory", and either way, they are My People.

    Re bands with two drummers: I had no idea you were a fan of the Allman Brothers Band and the Grateful Dead...

    • Miles Davis had two drummers for a while. Miles Davis is the definition of cool.

      But when I hear the Melodica, I can't get the Hooters out of my head.

      Thanks a lot, Jamie.

      There's a statute of limitations on this shit, you know.

      But I did really like "Almost Famous".

      Also, if those are your go-to thoughts, instead of Cop Shoot Cop, Pigface, Killing Joke, Murder Inc, Sharkbait, Crash Worship... hell, even Yelle... You live in a musically very sad world.

        I always thought Crash Worship was more the school of "our band is all percussion, but some of the objects happen to have strings".

        There's this thing called "irony"...maybe you're immune?

    "Your Silent Face" always jumped out at me as the melodica NO song but maybe nobody references that. Or "Truth".
