Terry and I had sandwiches from this place today, around 1:13 pm

this explains it:


edit to add: this just in — is it good or bad to use a blurb from 40 years ago—? :

Queen of Siam [ZE, 1980]
Having walked out on three different bands led by this dame, I have the credentials to certify this funny, sexy, accidental little record. Half the time she exaggerates her flat Cleveland accent into a hickish, dumb-and-dirty come-on or parody of same, and half the rest of the time she plays her foolish nihilist poetry for laughs, which leaves a quarter of the time when she’s the nihilist fool I’ll walk out on till the day she dies. Pat Irwin’s big-band atonalisms suit her city-of-night shtick perfectly. And “Spooky” is the cover of the year. B+ (Robert Xgau my fellow Dartmouthian, reminds me of the time I was at a event, celebrating 200 years of student journalism at Dartmouth and I was in the lobby of the Hanover Inn with Jack Steinberg and Ed Burns and I just grabbed from a bookshelf, a random Dartmouth yearbook and opened to a random page and saw a picture of Robert Christgau and said to Jack Steinberg “did Robert Christgau go to Dartmouth?” and Jack Steinberg said, who is Robert Christgau ?

and1: this is an authorized image:

Andand: Frank Kozik is the creator of the Lydia Lunch poster at the top of the page; he did one poster for Earthwise or with Earthwise, an Oxbow show in 1994. Rest in peace, hombre. Partly as a tribute to Frank, and partly out of respect for Lydia, Maya Food and Eric Kneeland are making some silk screens. Maya from The Donuts. Eugene Robinson opens.
