THE VOICE OF ENERGY VOL. 104
Hello, and welcome back to the land of my newsletter. I trust that you are all well. Me... I'm running about 65% battery life this morning. We'll see if the day recharges or depletes me.
About halfway through the first of three performances that Chicago agitrock trio Shellac played here in Portland, bassist Bob Weston filled the time that his cohort Steve Albini needed to tune his guitar by doing what he always does: fielding questions from the audience. And, as ever, both questions and answers were equal parts sincere and goofy. "Can you recommend a band from the last couple of years that you like?" asked one skinny white male. "Well, I always say ELO is a good choice," replied Weston. "What does God look like?" asked another. Weston pointed to drummer Todd Trainer.
