Too right, Miss C. And the supreme irony-they still don't know who the Replacements were.


Hey, they didn't know who Alex Chilton was!

Oh, and thank you Jaimeo. I rather liked that one too. Suitable for framing, I should think :)

The kicker? I hear Talking Heads and Elvis Costello in the grocery store. No joke. Last week I was in the No Frills (a discount shop) and I heard "Once in a Lifetime." Real up music, you know, when you're shopping for generic soup. It was followed up by Rick Astley's "Never Going to G...

It's hard to imagine enough people connect with that song AND the urge to buy a Subaru that using a Pogues song makes sense. It may be more like "all my jingle writers suck - go find me a lively song!" I know what you mean, but remember that people have very selective memories. The people...

I'd be happy to chuck the "sell out" slur altogether and just swear at shitty bands. Perhaps we should rethink what selling out means. For instance, the guys from ABBA recently took legal action against a Swedish right-wing party for using their song without permission. The songwriters we...

I agree with Derek. I guess they got to make a living being an artist. Sometimes "sideprojects" or "experiments" don't wash with fans who just want to wallow in the "good ol' days." Yeah, it would be nice if artists could still sell their creations without someone in th...
