Can't Make A Sound
Elliott Smith is apparently releasing a double album this summer, perhaps to make up for the dog’s age we’ve been waiting for From A Basement On The Hill. Of course, by that reasoning, Liz Phair owes us a 10-disc box set. Either way, I’m glad to see Elliott is back being productive, I’d heard some of the rumours about the various reasons he’d become derailed (drugs, drink) and was pretty concerned.
Supergrass is coming to the Guvernment on March 9. I don’t know if this is of interest to me – I’m not sure where I stand on the whole Britpop thing anymore. I haven’t felt compelled to get their latest album, at any rate.
I am very excited that the reissue of Uncle Tupelo’s Still Feel Gone will feature the cover of The Soft Boys’ “I Wanna Destroy You”, which I had been looking for for ages to no avail. It was a b-side on the “Gun” 7″, I think.
