did you lose the monkey?


So, I saw on Stereogum that Fountains of Wayne is releasing a DVD called "No Better Place: Live in Chicago." The playlist is little retro, as it was apparently filmed in 2005. Oh, and they posted a clip from the DVD.

AND IT'S THE EFFING SOUNDSTAGE PERFORMANCE I WAS AT!!! Except not edited down to less than 30 mins and combined with crap All American Rejects footage, like the damn broadcast was.

See for yourself here, and/or buy the DVD Mar. 3. Wow. Talk about a blast from the past. I'm pretty sure that was first semester 1L year. AND I was subjected to fundraising phone calls (usually on Saturday mornings) from that public TV station for the next two years, till I forcefully told them to take me off their list. Good times.

But anyway, maybe on a nice, hi-def TV, I'll be able to see myself in the audience...

...oh, and in other FOW news, Adam Schlesinger has formed a band with the middle Hanson brother, the drummer from Cheap Trick and Smashing Pumpkins' James Iha. Yes, it sounds like the setup to a joke, but I am not kidding.
