‘m hereby announcing a Mac McCaughan tribute band called SuperMo that features Mark Weiss on not quite tuneful vocals, Steve Rothblatt on congas, and an assorted and rotating and non-repeating cast of other not quite melodic or rhythmic side peoples, funicular if not exactly fun or funny — the name references Glasgow Rangers vs Celtics kind of thing, Alan Black, tranispotting — I’m from Frisco, yo.
Mac’s new song reminds me of Michael Fracasso Patty Griffin jam from yesteryear. I mean 2004 not 1962. It’s zero snub. All in. dig it all. Ones and Zeros. Us vs Nigeria.
I’m somehow confusing vincula or vinculum for funicula funiculum for no reason other than the true fact that Hershel Yatovitz of the rock bands Black Dog and Chris Isaak once used this term when he would come over to my apartment at 400 Vallejo near Cafe Trieste in North Beach and give me guitar lessons and I said my phone number was 3, 9, 8, 3, 9, 8, 3
