Recently I rediscovered some old music that is really really good. I was at a chipotle trying to get caught up on my burrito consumption. As you know, I am way way behind. There have been months where I have been able to stay entirely clear of the number of days that have flipped over with straight up count of burrito like objects that I have consumed. After all, it is essential to good health to consume burritos. But, of late I have had for some reason a tough time with that count.
Digging in with my head down on the burrito count I found myself tapping out a good rhythm with a song I recognized as an old Talking Heads song. I imediately Shazamed it and yep - Crosseyed and Painless from Stop Making Sense. Wow. What a great album. Remember the big suit? For 3 days now, I cannot stop listening to TH.
I know that this will absolutely surprise you to learn that there is actually a band other than Pearl Jam. I have been known to deny that as well. After all it is the only station still in business on Serius Radio.
Which brings me to my current debate. Brad is not Pearl Jam. I know it contains a Pearl Jam member, and Stone Gossard is possibly the coolest member of Pearl Jam, but it is not Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam requires Eddy on vocals, Mike on guitar as well, Jeff on bass and Matt on drums. They do a nice cover of the Neil Young song Don't Cry (actually better than Neil does), but that still isn't really Pearl Jam.
I got really excited about Brad. It is reasonably good music and works well on the trainer. I bought it all. Gave it all a really good listen. Afterall, there hasn't been any new PJ in a while. But I still want more PJ.
Don't ask me what Random is all about. I think that just shows that Jeff is bored and there needs to be a new PJ project.
Watch this if you have nothing else to do for an hour and half. The big suit comes in at 1'05". Good luck.
