To kick start your Monday....

You know all that stuff I just wrote about how Levon could "quarterback" a song from behind the drums -- controlling all the tempo and dynamic with subtle shifts? This is the substantially more aggressive version of that, with one of the best drummers on the planet, Janet Weiss. Around the two-minute mark, it all gets awesome, and she takes total control from there on. Your Monday just got better. You're welcome.


  1. Ooh, thanks for that. I saw Sleater-Kinney many times and they never failed to amaze. I miss their gigs, though the recordings are still on heavy rotation here at Kibber Towers.

  2. Kibber Towers, where visitors get a swift boot to the arse if the Graham Greene reference is not evident. Have you delved into Wild Flag yet? Well worth yr while.

  3. Yes! A top chum bought me their CD for my birthday. I'm liking it a lot (though Mary Timoney incurred my personal wrath about twelve years ago, when she made a play for my husband after a gig. Cheeky mare.).
