Great tune. We're all better off now that Lizzy's back at it.

You can't listen to Carolina off Broken Dreams Club (or that entire EP for that matter) and then listen to anything Owens has released as a solo artist and tell me JR wasn't completely running the show.

Version 2 of "Me & Magdalena" is a strong SOTY contender as far as I'm concerned.

I was at that show in Albany too, drove from Buffalo. Seriously sketchy ride back in some incredibly inclement weather. Worth the trip. Weezer proteges Ozma were on that tour too.

The "Canadian Ballet" is American-Canadian border slang for the Canadian strip clubs. As in telling the border patrol agent in Niagara Falls that late on a Friday night you and your buddies are going to the "ballet."

They're 3 for 3 with the singles but I do wish this one was produced more like a Thin Lizzy or Badfinger track.

It's a Randall Marsh tune. Petty only sings backup on this one.

February 22, 2016 on Watch DIIV Cover Elliott Smith’s “Ballad Of Big Nothing”
Modular has been sketchy since the beginning with this band. It seems like they were just ill equipped for the band to become so big. The Innerspeaker vinyl was originally advertised as being limited to 500 copies, but then it got repressed without any noticeable differences multiple times. Lots of vinyl nerd discussion about this over the years:

Couldn't agree more. Kiss That Frog is absolutely the low point on US, but it's still better than half of UP. I always felt like the singles from US were its lowest points. And U2 steals the spotlight for over-the-top live shows in the early 90's, but Gabriel's Secret World Tour overshadows Zoo TV in every way but bombast.

Sounds more like Asleep at Heaven's Gate than Permalight, which is a good thing.
