There But Fir The Grace Of God Go I
The Gories are reuniting for three shows next summer. Great god almights. One show is in Detroit, one in Memphis and one overseas. This is day-making news. Full story was found here. I once wrote a song about Peg, the drummer from the Gories and a fictional scene where she and I were at the same wedding, and even though she was there on a date with Alex Chilton from Big Star, we both got really drunk and made out in the broom closet. In this imaginary world of song we didn't ever see each other again, but I would sometimes wonder about her and think of calling her, not knowing even where she lived, but pretty sure the life she led wasn't making her very happy. I realize that due to the complete projective, naive fantasy aspects of it, this song should have been written when I was a 13 year old boy who hadn't ever kissed anyone yet, but it was actually last year. THAT'S HOW GOOD THE GORIES ARE!!!!(??)!
In less embarassing news, we mixed down the Silk Flowers stuff for two 7"s yesterday and it sounds really really nice. I'm working on a remix that I'll probably post later today.
