The three times I've seen them they've pulled heavily from the early SST releases and it was pretty great. They are also super fond of live covers. They did a version of the Beatles' Tomorrow Never Knows the first time I saw them that knocked my socks off. They're a first-rate live psych band.
Meat Puppets and Dinosaur Jr have both played Akron in the past year or two and I've missed both of them because I don't really listen to either on record very much any more, and I feel dumb about it.

I use chrome. Why won't they give me a standalone .zip download like every other site? I don't want to keep their stupid window open for the duration of my download.
And how is it not their fault that they want to do something? Isn't that exactly their fault?
^ Is that a new album from Peaches?
Phoenix - Bankrupt!

Please complain some more about how hard it is to download music without paying.
Phoenix already leaked? Wow. I can't find it anywhere. I don't know how this "Group" thing works on sharing it but if anyone can be of assistance that would be wonderful. I'd love to give it a listen to tonight and while I'm at work tomorrow. Thanks.
