    I enjoy the David Byrne release entitled Look Into the Eyeball.

    More than nine years ago, I saw Broken Social Scene play a surprisingly ecstatic and fun set in Tokyo.  They at one point had some awestruck Japanese high schoolers on stage with them to play brass on a song or two.  It was a euphoric and exhilarating night for quite a few of the people in attendance, and (though it had even, by then, been quite a few years since I'd actively enjoyed the band) it was a night full of memories I'll likely cherish for the rest of my life--I remember listening to both Scratch Acid and The Magnetic Fields (they'd just released Distortion, lol) on my iPod after getting off of work, that afternoon; I remember the Indian buffet where I ate dinner, before the show; I remember shopping for twelve-inches for a little while, after eating (I didn't buy anything); I remember the ride over to Shibuya with a big, gay, Canadian coworker who was fucking AMPED to see the band; I remember meeting up with my then-girlfriend and Deej's brother to wait in line (we ran into a mutual friend of theirs with whom he'd gone to prom in Evanston, five years earlier) outside of the club; I remember the ride home, afterwards (the last train of the night), and a lovely walk back to my apartment with the then-girlfriend.  She'd fallen asleep on the train and wasn't too happy about being awoken, but it was a good time in the end.  And I remember the show, too!  They played well and with both energy and plenty of good humor.  It was a great night. I had a lot of fun.

    But I remember the opening set by Stars far, far, far more fondly than I do any of those other things.  

    I remember the opening set by Stars because Amy Millan was singing for both acts, that night.  And I remember that because Amy Millan was, if not by any means obese, certainly a good deal broader, taller, and heavier than 90% of the Japanese people (men or women) in attendance at the show.  And I remember that because, when she took an ill-advised stage-dive near the end of the Stars set, she fucking crushed a group of poor bastards at the foot of the stage.  They stood no chance, and she laid waste to the motherfuckers.  It was carnage, man.

    Anyway, I bring that up because I really fucking enjoy her indie-country-post-rock-lite-lol solo record, Honey from the Tombs, even though it's very likely awful.  I'm sure it is.  But I can't hear them shits.  I love KC Accidental, too.  Like, I still actively love these records; I didn't just love them in 2005/2006 and then think better of it.  Fuck that.  Ride or die, bitches.

    And I should note that I didn't even know who Deej was, at the time. I'd never heard of SOMB. I just lurked on ILX and shit.

    I was singing along with an Erasure song playing in Wal-Mart, earlier. Some middle-aged Mexican jabroni gave me a nasty stink-eye. An historically elite singles band, if you ask me. Unstoppable.

    wrd. and not just the singles. I listened to The Innocents and The Circus the other day and even the deep cuts pop the fuck off.

    Oh, no doubt. The Circus is the shit. But, like...you know. It's mostly a singles act.

    A few weeks ago the words "Together we'll break these chains of love" sprung into my head and I couldn't remember what they were from and I spent a good two hours scraping together the melody in my brain meats and was pleased to find it was an Erasure song.
