Heavens to Betsy, Walkmen, Van Pelt were requests. I like Chisel more now than I did when they were still together and playing shows, I hate when that happens. This show was kinda dorky - not a whole lot of real rock stuff - but I enjoyed it.

Blondie and Bill and Will were requests. Lots of compilation tracks this show! I was pretty happy with the Dream Syndicate, Robyn Hitchcock, and Clever songs. Although I like them pretty good, playing the Flipper CD reissue does not sound good over the airwaves to me. This band's music was destined for a twice-dubbed cassette tape and cheap Sony Walkman.

I've always meant to type up some Assfactor 4 lyrics but this guy just beat me to it. In particular, check out the songs from the "Sports" LP.
Songs about their native South Carolina, politics, relationships, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and being in a band with your best friends. It doesn't get any better than this. When are these guys going to get the CD discography treatment? Someone get on it.
