They should have given you the bonus EP on CD for your troubles.

I almost want to boycott inessential Arts and Crafts albums, ridiculous that it was so difficult for you to get them to just send you your damn order. I'm glad you finally have it though.

For some reason I find the middle section of this album somewhat boring every time I hear it.

It was funny to see my name handwritten on the order packaging, though the novelty of that was not enough to suppress my rage.

I think it loses steam towards the end more than anything else. The last three tracks are weaksauce. "Water in Hell" kind of feels like a Pavement reject.

"Water in Hell" is pretty mediocre, yeah, and "Me and My Hand" is obviously a trifle, but I'll be damned if you say anything negative about "Romance to the Grave."

I like the entire run from Basement to Hell.

Me and My Hand is not as enjoyable as one would hope.....



in more ways than one

Definitely not as enjoyable, but more reliable. Not that that's any consolation or anything.

And, the album does slow down significantly at the end, but I've been surprisingly cool with that so far.

Once you get into those, your anticipation is going to reach a fever pitch. Seriously, get on it immediately.

Nice videos, Ashley.

well, just got back from seeing these cats live. fucking terrific gig.

it was at a more intimate pub venue you in the city's outskirts, relatively timid crowd, which i think annoyed the band somewhat. they had issues with sound for some of the show, one band member (guitar/vocals/storyteller/trumpet/moustache) lost an amp.

opened with World Sick (which i've grown less fond of since hearing a few months back) and played a great set, though i'd have liked to have heard Chase Scene, Ibi Dreams... and Sentimental X's.

nearly every song was incredible (Lover's Spit included snippets of Killing in the Name Of and With or Without You), the band were entertaining, bantering with the crowd and joking about the quality of our coke.

whoever the chick was playing keyboards, singing All to All and 17yo Girl Athems, was INSANELY hot, but she must be shy? she didn't really acknowledge the crowd, faced sideways or to the wall for a lot of the time. (coincidence i was singing Me and My Hand all the way home?)

closed with Superconnected and then a fucking manic Meet Me in the Basement. the only thing that sucked really was the drunk hipster and his gf behind me. i was ready to knock the cunt out. i'm all for people getting into it, hell i went crazy at LCD, but at least i wasn't drunk, yelling stupid shit out, knocking into everyone constantly and screaming into people's ears. also didn't need to see them making out during Lover's Spit.

after the gig they were all standing outside having a smoke, waving, casually chatting, they seemed friendly enough, i told them they were great.

having listened to three albums now, my current opinion is: FRR > YFIIP > BSS.

pleased i saw them over Florence.

anyway i'm getting up for work in five hours so i need me some goddam sleep.

Lisa Lobsinger is the girl's name, and yeah, she's a looker. No "Ibi," huh? That really blows. But at least you enjoyed seeing them. They never disappoint, even when the lineup doesn't include several principals.

Did you get "Shampoo Suicide" at least?
