Question the Answers

Posted: September 8, 2012 in Music nobody listens to

I am going to see Matthew Sweet perform ‘Girlfriend’ next Monday in a 300 person club.


Later in the month, I have a choice for loud post-punk squallery:
Mission of Burma

or teh Swans.


  1. M. Bouffant says:

    Take a tip from the Big Malig; Stay home & listen to the recordings.

  2. BDR says:

    Swans Swans Swans Swans Swans Swans Swans Swans Swans. Swans.

  3. mikey says:

    I absolutely LOVE “Sick of Myself”. I play it unhealthily often. Some might say doing so reinforces the ‘wrong’ messages. But its just too great a song.

    But I’m totally with Bouffant. Why go through the pain and aggravation just to hear them play, when you have audio reproduction equipment in your domicile?

  4. They sound good played together, but I think the blend needs one more.


  5. Live music mikey. Like a drug.

    I’ve seen Sweet in the same club, though, and he’s playing the whole Girlfriend album. Have I mentioned it’s a little 300 person club? Nahgahmissit.

    I wonder if blackdogred has an opinion on this question. Heh. I really like the new album they put out. A 23 minute song? It’s like a tribute to Rush!

  6. mikey says:

    Meh, surrounded by crowds of strangers in a dark place, I have to spend too much time re-assessing my tactical situation to enjoy the music. Besides, it’s hard to get sufficient weaponry past the people on the door.

    A decent shovel’s right out…

  7. TheY have a wide variety of alcohol, though.

  8. mikey says:

    A powerful point in their favor, it cannot be argued…

  9. Pinko Pinko says:

    Mikey- yes! Love “Sick of Myself” love love love

  10. mikey says:

    To be brutally honest, I do not expect the Alex Smiths to defeat the Aaron Rogers today. But I shall bravely watch nonetheless…

  11. […] to gloat in the comments, or whatever, or share Sailor Jerry drinks over the intertubes.  Although he pre-conceded, so whichever way it goes, he wins!  Well played […]

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
