Here's a nice end-of-the-week send-off:
I just came across this bootleg of a Bad Livers show in Oregon from July -- and, well, I had no idea Mark Rubin and Danny Barnes were back together, especially since Danny's playing with Dave Matthews these days. Rubin, who'll be at the Allgood on October 9 and who I've known since he was puttin' the kosher in Killbilly, says the gigs have been few and far between and will remain so, which is why he encourages you to download this sumbitch to your iPod's content.
"There was no rehearsal," Mark says. "It was total fuckin' sense memory. It was wild. It was just like falling off a bike." And it features more than a few of my favorite Livers songs, among 'em "Dallas, Texas," "Corn Liquor Made a Fool Out of Me" and the way-oldie-but-goodie "Shit Creek."
Shit Creek? Speaking of. Have a kick-ass weekend.
