I thought this would be a good start to some 90’s posts. When I queued up aMiniature’s albums I thought I’d be posting something off of DepthFiveRateSix (my fav release), but when I hit this song (off of the “Murk Time Cruiser” LP) I hit replay 3 times so the choice was obvious.
This track makes me wish I took photos all those years ago. I believe I saw these guys perform with Three Mile Pilot … Or was it Chune? Eh, I can’t remember now. See! A photo would have helped here.
Doyoucompute has made me want to go back and start posting some of the great music I listened to during the 90’s. While this song isn’t from that decade, the lyrics are spot on for the moment.
1995 is missing buses It’s walking 15 miles to see your love It’s knowing you’re alive through all the fuzz It’s never coming down from going up
1995 is cutting classes It’s sitting over coffees talking indie treats It’s the mere sensation of being the first one that you see When morning opens up the skies You see me when daylight opens up your eyes
And though I’m happier now I always long somehow Back to 1995
All my friends have different plans to make their lives worth while Some for the better Some for worse Some have gone to different cities searching every mile For missing pieces that will make a whole
1995 seems like a long way to go If you ever were to find your way back home But the only thing I really miss is being the first one that you see When morning opens up the skies You see me when daylight opens up your eyes
Dutch band De Kift makes me think of three things when I listen to them: The Ex, Mike Watt, and this scene from Future Primitive where Per Welinder emerges from a manhole yelling some stuff I can’t understand.
The live version of this song on “Live Trek 1985 - 1986” has some extra tasty special sauce on it, too.
Years ago, when I worked in a small indie shop in AZ, Bruce Licher would stop by occasionally to sell IPR merch. He was always great to talk to and he’d occasionally bring in his own used records to sell. Nice guy and talented letterpress artist. Check out the old postcards and flyers he has for sale on eBay. More about his printing services.
Last night, I saw The Obits (ex Pitchfork, Jehu, Hot Snakes, etc.) play a free show at a gutted restaurant in the International District of Seattle. So what does this song have to do with the show? Nothing. However, it was the first song that played on the iPod during my drive home around midnight. I played it three consecutive times at high volume because it had the same driving energy I had witnessed earlier.

We need you to act now to help make needed changes to Washington’s regulations regarding homebrew. Please read the message below for information on the situation.
The American Homebrewers Association has been working with the Washington Homebrewers Association (WAHA) to modify Washington’s regulations (RCW 66.28.140), which currently prohibit transportation or sharing of homemade beer and wine outside of the house of production, with exceptions only for competitions or exhibitions at which only “judges” can sample the products. The largest volume that may be transported is 1 gallon. Thus serving homebrew at homebrew club meetings or even at the house of a friend or family member is currently prohibited.
Senate Bill 5060 would allow for serving homemade beer and wine in amounts up to 20 gallons for meetings, events, etc., is currently scheduled for a public hearing in the Senate Labor, Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee on Tuesday, January 20th at 1:30 pm in Olympia (date is subject to change due to the Presidential Inauguration).
