Yep. They're fitting the evening.

You gotta be kidding... That was Mitch Easter & the 2 chicks, right?... "Every word means no" Let's Active, yes?
Posted: Jun 5, 2008 9:54 pm
 
I am-I am the one for you, I know you better than you do.

One of the chicks was Dexter Romweber's sister who ended up in Snatches of Pink, right.

Huh? That's wild.

Yeah. The folks still had a box of records of mine at their place that I grabbed today (been there for ages. I haven't lived with my parents for over 20 years). It's a fun record...It's hot as hell and humid here, 3 deep into 7% IPA's and wanted some sugarpop. This shit works. With my last band we actually contacted Mitch about recording us. We disbanded before a plan was in place though.

Sara was in Snatches of Pink. I interviewed Dexter one night and was happy cuz I did my research and asked about her. Then I asked him some dumb ass questions like "What's In Your Pockets?" A pack on Camel wides, a matchbook. a 5 dollar bill and a deck of nudie playing cards.

Never saw Sara live with Let's Active. I saw the later "Every Dog Has It's Day" line up.

Sara rules ! Catch her (oh yeah, and Dex) on tour towards the end of the month.

Sara's playing drums for Dex now?

She was the last time I saw them. Dexter rules, Sara is the best drummer he's ever played with.
Posted: Jun 5, 2008 10:46 pm
 
Yup ! And the tour is actually in July (dexterromweberduo over at myspace).
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 5:46 am
 
saw them open up for REM in the mid 80s. i liked them.
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 7:30 am
 
Saw that same tour, bought the LP (the one where he is on a lake or something on the cover) and sold it with a quickness...never held up with other similar bands of that era, namely The db's.

don't know if it's available on dvd yet, but the documentary
on Dex "2 Headed Cow" is pretty good. Saw it at a film festival the other
year w/ Dex and Sis playing a set.

Yep, Sara is a fantastic drummer. Played a (woefully underattended) show with them last year, and they were excellent.

dexter rules.

you know what's good? that Pylon reissue cd.

we should have it in the store. very no wavish new wave.
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 11:07 am
 
Pylon is great--found those first 7" at an old record store I worked at in Knoxville for $1 a piece.
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 11:52 am
 
no wave is back!

there's that coffee table book, flying off the Amazon.com shelves!
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 12:30 pm
 
Pylon has some of the weirdest tuned guitars I had heard at the time.
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 12:35 pm
 
Also, gave the other Let's Active rec's a spin and the first EP is the one that really sticks.

Now I think I'll listen to some dB's (or the Bongos "Drums Along The Hudson")
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 12:49 pm
 
Thanks alot. Not only did this thread make me pull out Let's Active, Pylon and the dB's, I'm afraid the Windbreakers will be next. Please stop the madness!!!!!!!!!!

Then Green On Red and all those Feelies side-projects?
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 1:03 pm
 
Rain Parade!
The Three O' Clock!
Rainy Day!

(and whatever else was on The Enigma Variations comp)
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 1:06 pm | Edited by: dale
 
That Rainy Day record is cool. The Three O'Clock ep might have to get busted out today. The Rain Parade albums ain't quite cutting it though (yes-I'm on a listening roll with all that "paisley underground" stuff now).

Plasticland? Or was they on the Restless Variations comp?

I've been partial to playing my Telecaster the past few months but I think it's time to get the Ric out again and jangle all weekend.

they were on one called the rebel kind, i think that was one of the bomp subsidiaries

Pink Dust was the label I was thinking. It was an Enigma sublabel. Wasn't a Roky album released on that label too? I'll have to thumb through my records now and check.

Yeah, right after Game Theory.

Save your time, I got your back on this one.

Pink Dust was a modestly interesting label. From Roky, they did the Don't Slander Me LP/CD, both of which are a pain in the ass to find & usually pricey when found. They were behind some of the early Flaming Lips wax, too.

I have a friend who totally swears by them & I never really got into them. Where to start?

Missed a chance to see them once. Saw Foetus @ the Cab Metro in Chicago as a midnight show. The early show that night, for which a seperate ticket was needed, was Pylon @ 7:00 pm.
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 6:09 pm

And Gremlins Have Pictures too. Got 'em both.

As far a Pylon-I dig Gyrate the most.

some dB's

Now breaking out the Sneakers ep. Mitch Easter and Chris Stamey's early band. It's pop.
Posted: Jun 6, 2008 9:52 pm
 
That did it, I'm putting on the DDT and I'm done. What the hell is a Love Tractor anyway?

was that the one, can't think what he was calling it, but it was the swans backing him, with a spotlight like batman pointed straight into the audience?

Mitch also produced Pavement's 4th album. Don't have that though. Tired of Pavement a couple years before it.

I know this is a tangent from hell, but when Burning Spear played Knoxville in oh maybe '89, the young buck Jamaican dudes backing him up, who didn't even like Burning Spear, came into the record store I worked. The 18 year old bass player bought The Swans t-shirt that had the big $ sign and "Time Is Money" on it. He put it on right then and was beaming. Natch he had no clue who The Swans were.

the swans backing him,

I thought it was just Westeberg & that Kizys guy who's name I never knew how to pronounce. Was Parsons on drums? I remember he had that Hahn Rowe guy from Hugo Largo with him too. I think he played violin all night.
Posted: Jun 9, 2008 8:50 am
 
i used to have a bootleg from that tour, but i can't remember who all it was now, maybe, basically the swans

Nick Lowe Labour of Love 1979

Love this too, but gotta say Pure Pop... beats it.
