Well. No.

I like TA good enough but their singer blabs on and on and on here. Craig barely gets to talk. That's why i called him a clown.

I find him interesting, but he talks a lot sure.

While we are here, I listened to the hold steady a little a few years ago, I liked a few tunes (I'm gonna walk around and drink some more). Where should I start with these guys?

Most people think their best album is Separation Sunday.

My favorite is Boys and Girls in America (which also has the song you quote above called "Party Pit")

Their most accessible album is Heaven is Whenever.

The one with their healthiest mix of sound is Stay Positive.

So yea, get to work!

She played "Heaven Isn't Happening"
She played "Heaven Is A Truck"
She said Heavenly was cool, I think they were from Oxford
I only had one single, it was a song about a pure and simple love

There's a "Girl On Heaven Hill"
I come up to her cabin still
She said Husker Du got huge, but they started in St. Paul
Do you remember "Makes No Sense At All?"

And heaven is the whole of the heart
And paradise is by the dashboard light
Utopia's a band, they sang "Love Is The Answer"
And I think they're probably right

Let it shine down on us all
Let it warm us from within
He wasn't just the drummer, he was the singer's younger brother
I still spin that single, but it don't sound that simple

Let it shine down on us all
Let it warm us from within
He wasn't just the drummer, he was someone's little brother
I still spin that single, but it don't sound that simple anymore

Heaven is whenever we can get together
Sit down on your floor and listen to your records
Heaven is whenever we can get together
Lock your bedroom door and listen to your records

Heaven is whenever we can get together
Heaven is whenever we can get together
Heaven is whenever we can get together
Heaven is whenever we can get together

Heaven is whenever

Every Friday I'll provide a THS song to jam out to.  Today's is a song from "Heaven is Whenever" called "Soft in the Center". Enjoy!

Think Beaner and Jeter. Subtract the condoms and add in buffalo wings.

In honor of his bday find yourself a Party Pit and celebrate!!!!

I guess I met her at the party pit
She said those kids she's with were sellin' it
And so we sailed off on some separate trips
And she got pinned down at the party pit
I went away to school that fall
She stuck around with all those stick-pin dolls
Sped through the scene until the engine stalled
Some suburban shopping mall

Sailed away on separate trips
And she got pinned down at the party pit
Sailed away on such separate trips
And she got pinned down at the party pit

I came back to start a band, of course
I saw her walking through the crystal court
She made a scene by the revolving doors
She's gonna walk around and drink some more
So I walked across that grain bell bridge
In a brand new Minneapolis
She said "I think of all those things I did
With just momentum from the party pit"

Sailed away on separate trips
And she got pinned down at the party pit
Sailed away on such separate trips
And she got pinned down at the party pit
Sailed away on such separate trips
And she got pinned down at the party pit
Sailed away on such separate trips
And she got pinned down and I'm pretty sure we kissed

And I'm pretty sure we kissed

Gonna walk around and drink some more

Gonna walk around, gonna walk around, gonna walk around and drink some more

Hey citrus, hey liquor
I love it when you touch each other
Hey whiskey, hey ginger
I come to you with rigid fingers

I see Judas in the hard eyes of the boys working the corners
I feel Jesus in the clumsiness of young and awkward lovers

Hey barroom, hey tavern
I find hope in all the souls you gather
Hey citrus, hey liquor
I love it when we come together

I feel Jesus in the clumsiness of young and awkward lovers
I feel Judas in the long odds of the rackets on the corners
I feel Jesus in the tenderness of honest, nervous lovers
I feel Judas in the pistols and the pagers that come with all the powders

Lost in fog and love and faithless fear
I've had kisses that make Judas seem sincere
Lost in fog and love and faithless fear
I've had kisses that make Judas seem sincere

Lost in fog and love and faithless fear
I've had kisses that make Judas seem sincere
Lost in fog and love and faithless fear
I've had kisses that make Judas seem sincere

You should have seem 'em just after midnight
When they were down on their luck and still high from a street fight

Told it like it wasn't really much of a big thing
To be out on the tiles and barely breathing, we were barely breathing
Showing up at shows like you care about the scene still
But where were you when the blood spilled and they almost killed me?

It got pretty sketchy
We tried to push forward
Now we're pointing at the scoreboard and it feels so amazing
And the crowd's going crazy

Summer '88 was all heat and intensity, saw The Youth Of Today at 7th street Entry
There were skins in the pit and some of them tried to kill me
Same club next summer and now they're called Shelter, and after the show I spoke with the singer
And he tried to hand me a pamphlet about Hare Krishna

I said you gotta be kidding
Who the hell is the blue guy?
But then he said something special
Using only his eyes, using only his eyes

The kids are all distracted
No one wins at violent shows
The kids are a distraction
No one wins at violent shows

The kids are all distracted
No one wins at violent shows
The kids are a distraction
No one wins at violent shows

The kids are all distracted
No one wins at violent shows
The kids are a distraction
No one wins at violent shows

But they didn't name her for a saint
They named her for a storm
So how's she supposed to think about
How it's gonna feel in the morning?

She said if heaven's hypothetical
And if the cigs keep you warm
Then how's she supposed to think about
How it's gonna move in the morning?

About how it's gonna move in the morning
About how it's gonna move in the morning

Hurricane Jessie's gonna crash into the harbor this summer
She don't want to wait 'til she gets older
Hurricane Jessie's gonna crash into the harbor this summer
She don't want to wait, she said it only gets harder
