Plus: Bitty McLean, The Pogues, and The Boo Radleys
superb piece on cannonball and its surroundings, nice one
Simply cant be beat. Cannonball is up there with SABOTAGE! And I much prefer The Breedes albums than to any by the Pixies.
Story no one asked for:
On a dreary Midwest fall night in (probably '99), a coworker and I went to a house party near campus. Every corner was filled- you literally couldn't find a place to fall down. The band was locally famous as a Pogues cover band. On that night they tore the roof off the place with their versions of "Tuesday Morning" and "Sitting on Top of the World."
25ish years later, reading this took me right back to that night. People might hate Spider Stacy's stint at the mic, but I'm not one of them; those are still my two favorite tracks by the band.
